The entire Bachelor nation saw Ben Higgins go down on his knee and propose to the love of his life Lauren Bushnell. While we all rejoiced, there was one person who was left absolutely heart broken.
It was none other than the runner up, JoJo Fletcher.
Chris Harrison announced JoJo fletcher is going to be the next bachelorette on the After The Final Rose Live. Although many fans of the show were shocked, Lauren Bushnell has something else to say about the announcement.
Bushnell “wasn’t surprised” at all when she heard the news that Fletcher would be headlining next time around.
“She’s fun and she’s going to have no problem finding a guy,” Bushnell said. “Guys are going to be lined up out the door.”
Lauren also said that she called JoJo after the show ended.
“Obviously, it’s a weird conversation to have,” Bushnell revealed. “She was always really supportive. So, we discussed things. There were certain things that we didn’t go into great detail or great depth about. I think we just wanted to let each other know that we still have a great level of respect for one another and that didn’t change, no matter what the outcome was.”
“I mean, nothing is weird or anything like that,” she added. “We talk periodically — here and there — and catch up with what each other is doing.”
Now that the show is over, Ben Higgins says that the focus is on the future with Lauren Bushnell.
“Lauren and my intentions when we committed to each other was to commit to each other,” he shared. “To do whatever it takes to keep that commitment going forever and that’s why I think it’ll work. That’s why I have no doubt that it will work.” He signs off.
We wish the couple all the very best for future endeavors.
