More like Happily NEVER After…
Well, it’s starting to look like he maybe should have asked JoJo Fletcher to marry him instead…
That’s because during Tuesday night’s TWO HOUR Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, he officially called off the wedding!
Promos for the Freeform docuseries heavily hinted at some sort of hesitation from the software salesman — including that questionable “?” in the show’s title — but we weren’t expecting this! Oh, at all!!
Despite trying to work on their relationship alongside fellow Bachelor Nation pairs Lace Morris & Grant Kemp and twins Haley & Emily Ferguson in group counseling… the former ABC star left his (for now) fianc├â┬⌐e “blindsided,” admitting:
“The wedding’s off├óΓé¼┬ª I think this thing sped up real fast, and we haven’t had a second to breathe.”
To make matters worse, Ben’s rationalization for slowing things down only hurt Lauren even more. She explained:
“When you say that we just haven’t done anything, it hurts because I’ve moved to Denver and had to switch jobs, and I left my life in L.A. to come and do the life with you.
I have no idea what just happened. I feel completely blindsided.”
It’s almost as if dating for just a month on national television actually isn’t the way to find your soulmate?!
Still, we do feel bad for her right now — she made it very clear marriage was always her end game.
With that said, Ben didn’t take Chris Harrison‘s wedding special offer off the table… it’s just gonna be a while before Lauren B. becomes Lauren H.
Do U think Ben & Lauren will still get their Happily Ever After after all??
