'Bachelor' Ben Higgins Is Reportedly Still Pining for JoJo Fletcher

As far as Instagram shows us, it looks like Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are living happily ever after in their post-Bachelor lives -- or are they? Apparently, Ben wants JoJo Fletcher back, but now that she's starring on The Bachelorette, that obviously can't happen.


According to a report from In Touch (via Wetpaint), Ben has been having second thoughts about choosing Lauren after seeing JoJo in action on The Bachelorette every week. It seems like he may be questioning whether or not he made the right decision when he chose to propose to Lauren, and it's obviously not looking good for the future of their relationship. 

As a source close to the former Bachelor told the mag: 

Ben’s realizing he’s still very much in love with JoJo and those feelings may never go away. Ben thinks he may have picked the wrong woman … He questions whether he would have been happier being engaged to her. Deep down, Lauren has never forgiven Ben for telling JoJo he loved her just hours before proposing to Lauren. Her insecurity has always been a source of tension. It’s driven a wedge between them.

Yeah, that does not sound good. Especially as the source also adds that Lauren isn't very happy living with Ben in Colorado since she's far away from her friends, and her complaints make Ben wonder if JoJo would have been a better fit for the life he lives. 

This news is such a bummer, so we're hoping that it's not true. But really, would it be that shocking if it is? Bachelor romances don't exactly have the best track record, after all. 

Good luck, Ben and Lauren! You can work through this!
