Ben Higgins May Have Quit 'The Bachelor' If It Weren't for His Mom

As if Ben Higgins couldn't possibly get more adorable, he's gone and done it again. If a new report about our favorite leading man is true, Ben almost quit The Bachelor until his mom gave him the support he needed to make it through to that final rose ceremony!


So far this season, it's been easy to see that Ben's wearing his heart on his sleeve. He's been so sweet to all of the women, even the ones he's had to reject, and he makes it clear when he has a connection with someone -- especially when he gave out gifts! But being that sensitive has its downsides, and it sounds like doing the show has been a bit of a challenge for him. 

A Bachelor insider told Life & Style

Ben was so upset in the middle of filming that he was ready to quit a few times because of all the drama with the girls fighting. He needed a pep talk from his mom. It was so stressful for Ben. There were many times where he didn't know if he could continue the season.

According to the mag, Ben's mom will also make an appearance this season to help guide his final choice. How sweet will that be?!  

Poor Ben! Guess dating 28 women all at once isn't all it's cracked up to be. It's a bummer to hear he's struggled so much with it, but good to know that he has such a close relationship with his mom. Whoever he chooses will have tough competition to be the number one woman in his life!
