“The Bachelor” is back with a new season and 2016 will be the year when one of the lucky Bachelorettes will win Ben Higgins’ heart. However, even before the show premieres, there seems to be a bit of drama that awaits fans of the series.
According to International Business Times, “The Bachelor” has not even premiered and things seem to be a bit awkward between the ladies and the center of attraction Ben. The media outlet while talking about a sneak peek of Episode one quoted Entertainment Weekly and stated that the latter media outlet released a little glimpse from the show.
According to the sneak peek, the 27-year-old Ben can be seen spending time with a contestant named Lace, who is a 25-year-old real estate agent. Everything seems to be going really well for the two at first however when Lace mentions about getting a better first kiss, things get a bit awkward from there.
After hearing Lace’s proposal of a “better first kiss,” Ben hints at the fact that he wants to take things slow and in order to make sure that his message clearly reaches Lace, he does play around with his words.
According to him, he really wants to get to know everybody before they can get into the physical part. He even added that he does not want to forget to take some time out to talk to contestants however it seems Lace falls short there too because another contestant intervenes in their conversation.
Later on in the clip, Lace is shown mentioning that the other contestant just swooned in between their conversation and that Ben denied her a kiss. Nonetheless Lace does not seem too happy about the incident. Ben too from his side later on clarified that he indeed wants to take time out talking and getting to know other contestants because it is important.
Entertainment Weekly added that the first episode of “The Bachelor” is for the ladies to make that first impression on Ben or rather try to nab that coveted first kiss. “The Bachelor” will premiere on January 4th on ABC.
