Love is in the air on 9Life with the 20th season of The Bachelor to be fast-tracked, same day as the United States, premiering Tuesday, January 5, at 8.30pm.
The new season stars fan-favourite Ben Higgins, the only son of loving, married parents David and Amy, a union that has been going strong for 34 years. This season’s Bachelor wants nothing more than to find the kind of love that his parents have. And he’s ready.
While only 26, Ben is wise beyond his years. An avid traveller and a champion of varied cultures, he has worked at a zoo in Peru, travelled through the jungles of Bolivia, and even hiked the spiritual trails of famed Machu Picchu in Peru.
Bachelorette fans were left heartbroken when this successful, sensitive and handsome software salesman who loves basketball, hiking, fishing and stimulating conversation was sent home by Kaitlyn Bristowe on the last season of The Bachelorette. It wasn’t easy for Ben to open himself up to love because he’s been hurt in past relationships. However, now knowing he is capable of being in love and being loved, he is ready to put the heartbreak behind him as he searches for his one true love on the new season of the enormously popular reality-dating show.
Join Ben on the romantic rollercoaster ride as he courts 28 eligible bachelorettes on a series of group and individual dates in small towns, big cities and sensual, exotic locations. Ben will narrow down the field of beautiful bachelorettes to one woman, his potential soul mate, in the dramatic season finale – the one he hopes to share the rest of his life with.
