Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell found true love on the last season of The Bachelor (or at least as close to true love as one can find over a two month period on national television). Their love was so good and pure (at least by reality TV standards) that everyone was convinced they might be the Bachelor couple that actually made it.
But a new promo for the latest episode of their spin-off show, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After appears to show Ben calling off their wedding. Could there be trouble in paradise? Here, watch for yourself:
The clip shows Ben telling his fiancée, "I think you’re ready to start a life. I’m not ready for that — not even close."
And when Lauren asks if he's saying the wedding is off, Ben appears to respond, "Yeah I am."
I know. WHAAAAAT?! Kids, I advise you to take this with a grain of salt. The Bachelor team has perfected the art of creating misleading promos to get you to tune in and see what happens.
But what if it's real?! What if he actually called the wedding?! I kind of hate myself for getting sucked into this madness, but I think I need to watch and find out. Damn you, Bachelor franchise. So infuriating, yet so, so entertaining. God, I love it.
You can tune in to find out Ben and Lauren's fate Tuesday night at 8/7c on Freeform.
