The 'Bachelor' Drama Heats Up Even More With Olivia & Lace

We are now two episodes into Ben Higgins's season of The Bachelor, and if last week's limo arrivals weren't juicy enough for you, the latest installment will definitely do the trick. ABC gave us two group dates and the first one-on-one of the season, and the newest crop of ladies are bringing the drama. 


The first group date featured school-themed challenges inside a real high school, like doing chemistry experiments and bobbing for apples. You know, like we all did in high school. Because this is The Bachelor, that's why. 

The date ended with Ben and his women hanging out on a gorgeous LA rooftop, where he took the time to chat with each of them individually. Remember how Ben said he wasn't going to be kissing much this season? That idea is officially out the window, because he practically broke Chris Soules's previous kissing record with all the smooching he did.

The drama didn't kick in until the rose ceremony, when there was practically a smackdown between Olivia and Lace when Lace got upset that Olivia was taking up so much time with Ben despite Olivia's having already received a group date rose. In fact, Lace ended up telling Ben all about her awkward kid years (for some reason we still don't understand) and eventually ended up crying in the mansion. Of course.

We can't wait to see what happens next, especially since it seems like Lace is just getting started. This girl knows no limits!
