“The Bachelor” Season 20 kicks off on Monday. Former “Bachelorette” contestant Ben Higgins will return to ABC for a second chance at love with 28 gorgeous and single women. And although sparks will fly with multiple ladies, only one can be named the winner at the 2016 finale.
Although there is plenty of time before the Fantasy Suite dates and final rose ceremony, we’re breaking down the Season 20 front-runners based on their bios.
So, who is the best match for Ben?? Check out our top picks:
Shushanna and Ben both seem to have a lot in common. “The Bachelor” star is adventurous, and that’s one of the qualities that the 27-year-old contestant is looking for in a partner. They’ve both also struggled with past relationships, which could help them bond.
“At some point I stopped believing in love again,” Shushanna explains in her bio. “I thought something was wrong with me or I’m just so busy that I don’t want anyone in my life. Maybe this get away will help to open my eyes and meet someone special.”
Ben shared similar thought while he was pursuing Kaitlyn Bristowe on “The Bachelorette.”
Ben isn’t one of those contestants that joined the show just to meet women. Marriage is extremely important to him and he looks up to his parents, who have been married for 34 years. Lauren B, a 25-year-old flight attendant, appears to share his values.
“It means a lot,” she explained when asked about marriage. “My parents have been married for 26 years and I’m so close to my family. Family is everything and marriage means starting your own family.”
Many relationships on “The Bachelor” don’t last because one person is unwilling to move for the other. That doesn’t sound like it will be a problem for Isabel, who also goes by Izzy. She reveals in her bio that in five years she’d like to be “living in a city [she has] never lived.” Bonus – she also wants to be with a man she loves “dearly.” Sounds like she wouldn’t mind moving to Ben’s hometown, Denver.
Ben fell in love with Kaitlyn’s funny personality, so it would be safe to say he’d be attracted to someone who can be funny. Lauren H, a 25-year-old kindergarten teacher, is definitely that. When asked where she goes to meet guys, Lauren H. replied: “on TV shows.”
