“Bachelor” fans rejoice: Ben Higgins’ bachelorettes have been revealed!
On Monday ABC released the list of 28 women, including two you will recognize from Chris Soules’ season. Amber James was let go on only week three, so it isn’t surprising to see her pop up for a second chance at love, especially after it also didn’t work out on “Bachelor in Paradise” season 2. However, viewers may be shocked to see Soules’ runner-up, Becca Tilley, step out of the limo. Becca was an early favorite for Chris, but he wasn’t sure about her commitment to him and his lifestyle. With similarities between Ben and Chris, including their love for their small towns, it’s hard to imagine this chance ending differently for the bachelorette.
Another unexpected surprise on Ben’s bachelorette list is 23-year-old bartender Jami, who happens to be friends with the last woman to break Ben’s heart, Kaitlyn Bristowe. We can’t imagine those wounds have healed enough for Jami to have a fair shot.
When the first rose ceremony is over, only 21 women will remain, one of which will hopefully be Ben’s dream girl — or at least our next “Bachelorette.”
