Ben Higgins – Bio, Age, Dating, Girlfriend, Height, Family, Facts

America fell in love with the handsome salesman named Ben Higgins after he appeared in season 11 of the hit television show The Bachelorette, in which he competed for the affections of Kaitlyn Bristowe. Although he ended up coming in third place, his status as an American reality television sweetheart was pretty much set in stone. He later joined The Bachelor in its 20th season, this time as the star. Ben’s charming attitude and his romantic side have endeared him to millions of fans in the United States and across the world.

He went from being an ordinary business analyst and salesman for a financial services company based in Denver to securing widespread fame and considerable wealth from his screen appearances. The sought after bachelor has appeared on several other shows including Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise, The Bachelor Winter Games, Access Hollywood, Extra, Bachelor Live, Entertainment Tonight, and Good Morning America. Although Ben Higgins has been through a few rough patches, he has since regained hold of the reins of his life and is busy making the best of it.

Ben Higgins: Bio (Age)

The Bachelorette star was born Benjamin Edward Higgins in Warsaw, Indiana, on March 23, 1989. He had a pretty normal upbringing, and he played football while in high school. After completing his early education, he got accepted to Indiana University in 2008, where he earned a degree in business administration and management. He belonged to the prestigious Delta Upsilon Indiana chapter and he spent some time holding the position of vice president for the organization.

Ben Higgins has had a very interesting professional life. He has worked in a Zoo in faraway Peru and has served as a software salesman. As a student, he worked as an event manager for Jonah Club Fish Fry, then later on as a student ministries intern for his local community church, and finally as a marketing and fundraising coordinator for the Bakers Youth Club. Ben has always been aware of the effect he had on women since he was a teenager, so he decided to leverage his fine looks for a chance at fame by contesting in The Bachelorette in 2015. Although he quickly found favor amongst the viewers of the show and gained their admiration, he was refused the rose by Kaitlyn Bristowe and had to be evicted from the show as the second runner up.

The show’s producers took notice of his fame and decided to make him the star of season 20 of The Bachelor, so a bevy of young women could compete to become his chosen partner. However, away from the shiny life of reality television, Ben Higgins has also been killing it at his regular job. When he started working at Talisys in August 2013, he was filling the role of business analyst, but his first promotion came two years later. He was made an account manager, in another two years was promoted to Vice President of Business Development position. Ben also has his own coffee brand called Generous International, which was co-founded with his partners Drew Scholl and Riley Fuller.

His Girlfriend, Is He Dating Anyone?

The reality TV star fell in love with Lauren Bushnell on The Bachelor in 2016, and they soon embarked on a very public relationship. They moved in together and starred in a spinoff series, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? The lovebirds were one of television’s favorite couples. They appeared to be incredibly happy together and were set to get married, so it was an absolute shock when they announced that they had broken up sometime in 2017. Ben Higgins was completely devastated by the split and he avoided the relationship scene for a while, but he was recently struck by cupid’s arrow.
