2 of Ben Higgins's Ladies Have Their Eyes on a Bigger Prize Than Him

As adorable and sweet as Ben Higgins is, not all of the the Bachelor contestants are in it just to win Ben' heart. Rumor has it Becca Tilley and JoJo Fletcher are competing to become the next Bachelorette — and Higgins isn't their true inspiration for appearing on the reality show.


Higgins is just three weeks away from giving out his final rose on season 20 of The Bachelor. With a few exceptions, most of his contestants' identities are still a big mystery, but we do know that he is expected to eliminate two of the six remaining girls, which includes Becca, JoJo, and newcomers Lauren, Emily, and Caila.

Reality Steve has already confirmed via Twitter that Becca has scored a hometown date in Shreveport, Louisiana, with Ben next Friday (her birthday), but he says he doesn't believe she'll make it to the final two episodes:

One of the main reasons she probably won't last until the final rose ceremony is because producers may be trying to push for her to become the next Bachelorette — or maybe another contestant on Bachelor in Paradise 3. Either way, the show's creators seems to love her and may have even convinced Ben to find reasons to like her enough to get her to this point so that viewers are left wanting more Becca.

I guess time will tell whether that proves to be the case.

As for JoJo, the 24-year-old from Dallas is also reportedly a good candidate for The Bachelorette, according to Reality Steve. Nothing is set in stone just yet, but there is talk that she will make it to the final four — but that Jolene's close relationship with her ex Chad Rookstool (who is watching her dog while she films the show) may prevent Ben from considering her as a long-term girlfriend.

I think Becca is going to have to do something extraordinarily interesting this season to get viewers excited about her as a potential Bachelorette star — if only because we've all become very used to seeing her. Throwing JoJo's name into the mix stirs the pot a bit. It will be interesting to see whether Ben actually connects with either woman and whether genuine chemistry exists — or if they've simply been cast to prep them for their own show.
