Will they ever get their happily ever after after all this?!
Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell entered uncharted territory for Bachelor Nation when they agreed to document their lives as an engaged couple on Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After.
However, during Tuesday night’s second installment of the Freeform docuseries… the idea of a nationally televised wedding made The Bachelor second-guess his entire relationship!
The episode started off with the conclusion of last week’s awkward double date brunch with JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers — but they weren’t the only ABC alums in town.
That’s because Chris Harrison himself stopped by Denver to offer Ben and Lauren yet another once in a lifetime opportunity: their very own wedding special!
Unfortunately, the newly engaged guy didn’t seem ready to be a groom… because he IMMEDIATELY got cold feet at the idea of marrying his fianc├â┬⌐e this soon, saying:
“My stomach’s dropped, I have butterflies, my head’s spinning. It’s a lot… really soon. I’ve never been married before! It makes me nervous, I’ll be honest: Everything’s been so quick.”
We hate to break it to you Ben, but you’re not even the fourth most recently engaged couple in the franchise… so that dream wedding is already on borrowed time.
Luckily, Chris’ promise of a ceremony “on steroids” and a “wedding planner at their disposal” was more than enough for Lauren!
But in the end… it sounded like the former bachelor came around to the idea of marriage, saying:
“It’s still hard for me to even grasp…[but] I want to do it. I want the world to see that we will be spending together forever.”
Let’s just hope they beat JoJordan to the altar because Lauren B. definitely doesn’t need even more competition from her arch nemesis! LOLz!!
How are U feeling the
completely staged show so far??
