‘Bachelor’ Ben Higgins Engaged To JoJo Fletcher? Reality Steve’s Final Rose Spoilers Questioned After Ben Drops Major Hint About JoJo

JoJo Fletcher The Bachelor

Bachelor Ben Higgins hand out his final rose in a few weeks and fans may be in for a big season finale twist. Are Reality Steve‘s spoilers wrong for Season 20, who did he really pick, and is he still engaged?

Filming for the final rose ceremony took place in November, so it’s been more than two months since Ben got down on one knee and proposed. Although spoilers indicate that 25-year-old flight attendant Lauren Bushnell is the winner, many viewers started questioning the outcome when Ben made one of the most unrealistic promises in the history of the show while talking to JoJo Fletcher about her relationship fears.

During their conversation on Episode 5, JoJo asked Ben to let her know “what’s going on,” suggesting that she doesn’t want to go all in and end up dumped in the end. Ben responded by saying, “I can promise you, you won’t be blindsided.”

Did he know she was “the one” early-on or did producers tell him to throw that line in to keep JoJo on the show?

“There are a lot of things the lead pretty much HAS to say every season to contestants as to not give away which way he’s leaning,” Reality Steve writes, “but that one is certainly gonna come back to bite him in the a** big time. “

There’s always the possibility that Ben wants to go easy on the runner-up. Perhaps he plans to break up with his number two girl hours before the rose ceremony so she doesn’t have to face rejection after taking that long walk to what she hopes will be a proposal.

Fans will recall how humiliating the rejection is for the runner-up on past seasons of ABC’s The Bachelor and Bachelorette, including Nick Viall (Kaitlyn Bristowe) and Clare Crawley (Juan Pablo). However, at least one lead (Ali Fedotowsky) softened the blow by letting her runner-up (Chris Lambton) go before the rose ceremony.

Perhaps that’s what happens on Ben’s season, but viewers won’t find out for sure until the finale airs on March 14.

Interestingly enough, Jimmy Kimmel has predicted that JoJo will win Ben’s final rose and Lauren B. will be the runner-up. Add to that Ben’s promise not to blindside JoJo and ABC’s previews where Ben reveals he’s in love with both of the final two girls, and it’s easy to speculate why some fans think Reality Steve‘s final rose spoilers may be wrong.

However, Steve is still confident that fans will see Ben propose to Lauren B. on the finale and states that they are still engaged.

“I haven’t seen anything this season that seems to discredit that, with the most important fact being he picks her [Lauren] in the end.”

Do you think Ben picked JoJo or Lauren B. or is it still too early in the season to tell for sure?
