Ben Higgins Might Be Headed to 'Dancing With the Stars' After 'The Bachelor'

We're excited for the Bachelor season finale in a couple of weeks, but bummed that it means we won't be seeing Ben Higgins on our TVs again for a while ... or will we? Word on the street is that Ben could be joining Dancing with the Stars next season! 


Nothing is official yet, and we don't even know for sure if Ben has been asked to do the show, but it sounds like he's open to it if he was! While talking to E! News this week, he revealed that it's something he'd definitely consider.

Ben told E!

I'm not against any opportunity that presents itself. I need to analyze if that option was there, to say, "Okay, is this the best thing for me?" I don't know yet, I don't. I don't want to say this is the way I'm going to go with it because I haven't decided.

Since Chris Soules went on DWTS directly after The Bachelor last year, it wouldn't be too shocking to see Ben do the same. Plus, we have a feeling he'd be able to bust a move or two if he needed to!

Our only concern: Ben's relationship with his new fiancée. It's a little soon after they go public for him to do a show as taxing as DWTS, especially since it could have led to Chris and Whitney Bischoff breaking things off. But we trust Ben will do the right thing for himself and for his relationship! 

The official cast announcement comes March 8, which is next week. We'll find out for sure then!
