Ben Higgins Explained How Post-Engagement Reality Show With Lauren Bushnell Led Them Split Up
The former “Bachelor” star Ben Higgins has learned that appearing on TV isn’t always everything it’s cracked up to be. Because he thought filming the post-engagement reality show is one of the main reasons for the end of his relationship with Lauren Bushnell.
Recently Ben Higgins appeared on the episode of the Click Bait With Bachelor Nation podcast. In that podcast, he revealed all the hidden topics of his relationship with Lauren. He opened up about the background of the break up with Lauren.
Ben said in that podcast interview, “I don’t think there was a characteristic that was wrong, necessarily, but the timing of our life, right?” he explained. “I was 26, she was 25, we had just walked into this whole new world together. We were living in Denver, where she knew nobody, and then life was pulling us in a thousand different directions.”
Ben also mentioned, “If anything, we walked into it still getting to know each other, so we weren’t teammates. It just ended up pulling us apart, but I think it pulled us apart for the right reasons. Now I’m happily engaged, she’s very happily married and has a kid on the way. Now I look back on it and go, Of course it didn’t work out. We weren’t each other’s best fits. But I also can look back on it and learn a lot, too.”
Then Ben concluded, “Once you have that partner that wants to support you, that’s curious about you, that loves you, that you just have this peace and trust with them, that you recognize that your life is more beautiful with them than without them, I guess the question that you have to ask is, Why not?” the Alone in Plain Sight author said. “What else are you looking for? And she’s beautiful.”
Fans can recall that the couple got engaged in March 2016. They became close during the finale of the ABC dating series. However, this super couple ended their relationship in May 2017. They took the unusual path of starring on their reality show named “Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?” Ben thought this unscripted series created a huge problem in their relationships as cameras continued to roll. This reality Tv show featured more than a few awkward moments of tension.
