ABC Announces Its New ‘Bachelor’

And the Bachelor’s next leading man is…

Ben Higgins aka Ben H. from The Bachelorette ​is your brand new bachelor. Kaitlyn Bristowe’s second runner-up was officially announced as the Season 20 Bachelor on Monday (Aug. 24, 2015) during the Bachelor in Paradise after-show.

“It’s incredible,” Higgins told host Chris Harrison of the opportunity. “People like me don’t get opportunities like this, and I never would have thought that this opportunity would be something that I could have and I’m excited. Everything leading up to this has just been incredible.”

Higgins told also People he has no hard feelings towards his ex:

I was falling in love with Kaitlyn. She’s an amazing person. But after watching the season back, I realized that there were other relationships that seemed a little more right than ours. Also, [Kaitlyn’s fiancé] Shawn [Booth] and I are really good friends, and I see how happy he is and how happy she is, and that allowed me to move on and build a relationship with them as friends.

The 26-year-old salesman made a name for himself as the nice and hot guy. What we know for sure is that he’s not a virgin, he’s good with kids, and he looks absolutely adorable in sweaters. Is it too late to sign up?
