While Ben Higgins may’ve finally found love with Lauren Bushnell, it seems the twosome aren’t quite done with reality TV.
Yup, The Bachelor alums are returning to the boob tube for their own unscripted series about their life in Denver, CO. Now the spinoff show won’t air on ABC, BUT Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After will be apart of the network’s sister channel Freeform‘s fall programming. AH-Mazing!
On their decision to return to reality TV, Ben told Us Weekly:
“After you walk away from The Bachelor, it’s not like your life becomes private. People still find out what you’re doing, so it’s not changing our life to be public.”
You know, Higgins isn’t wrong. And it seems his fianc├â┬⌐e is totally onboard with the show as Miz Bushnell added:
“We’re already used to sharing our lives with everyone else… so we thought, ‘Why not?’ It’s a fun way to share life after The Bachelor.”
We’re sure the paycheck doesn’t hurt either. LOLz!
While the duo may seem blissfully in love, their show will document their transition into domestic life. Ben continued:
“Starting a life together is never going to be this super smooth transition. It’s going to have rocky edges at times, but I love coming home to her at the end of the day.”
Aww! Still the couple do bicker, as Lauren noted:
“He’s like, ‘Why do we need a new couch? We have a couch!’ So that’s been a point of contention.”
Nonetheless, we think we’re most excited to see Ben potentially try his hand at politics. The TV personality confirmed that he is considering a run for a seat in the Colorado House of Representatives. He explained:
“I’ve always had an interest in politics. I do a lot of work with a nonprofit called Humanity & Hope United [which aids struggling towns]. People reach out to me about community development and planning and how to counsel places that need help. At its core, that’s politics ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ dealing with issues we face as a community.”
Very inneresting. Don’t worry the soon-to-be hit will also cover Ben and Lauren’s upcoming nuptials too — phew!
Will YOU be tuning in to watch Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? We know we will!
