This guy is seriously a perfect 10.
Or, as the first promo video for the new season of The Bachelor puts it, a “perfect Ben.”
For Bachelor Nation, Christmas has come early. Rejoice, because there’s finally a sneak peek of the upcoming season, featuring Ben Higgins as the leading man in search of love. It’s been a long Bachelor drought, but according to E! News, it all comes to an end Jan. 4 when the new season premieres. And until then, we have this video to tide us over.
In addition to seeing Ben in all his Bachelor glory (with a ridiculously hot new haircut, we might add), we get a first look at some of the eligible bachelorettes who will be fighting it out for his affection this season. And in a twist that promises double the drama for Ben, two of the contestants are identical twins. They arrive in the same limo, get out at the same time and say the same things… at the same time. Whoa.
One of the ladies shown at the cocktail party pretty much sums up our thoughts: “Cheers to the hottest man in America!”
“I never thought I’d be in that situation,” 27-year-old Ben admitted in a recent interview when asked about dating so many women at the same time. “I’m nervous to meet the women that take some time out of their life to come hang out with me.”
If we learned anything about Ben from Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette, however, he’s going to do just fine. And even if he messes up sometimes, we’ll still be watching and rooting for him (and drooling a little at his hotness, tbh).
