Break out your JC Penny prom dress and slap on some hair extensions, ladies, because The Bachelor is back! It feels like it’s been years since we walked the cornfields with Farmer Chris on the last season of the show!
For this season’s Bachelor, they’ve chosen Ben Higgins, a software salesman from Indiana who is just about as exciting as a software salesman from Indiana sounds. Of course, he’s brought his “open heart” for “this journey” and he’s “ready to find love.” He’s 26 and from a small town in Middle America. To demonstrate this, they drag him out to some farm with a barn and make him shoot hoops. We are then treated to seeing Ben’s elementary school (where he says he still creeps around occasionally…), the movie theater where he had his first kiss, and some weird parade-thing that’s held in a parking lot.
