Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell got engaged on the season 20 finale of The Bachelor and are one of the few couples from the ABC reality dating show who are still together! These two have beat the odds and despite tabloid gossip and rumors, their relationship seems to be better than ever. In the season finale, millions of viewers watched as Ben proposed to Lauren with a $ 95,000, 4.25-carat, platinum square-cut halo-style diamond Neil Lane ring. Even though there’s no wedding planned in the near future, these two are still very much happily engaged. Here’s a look at 10 things you probably didn’t know about Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgin’s relationship!
10. What Do They Do Now?
When season 20 of The Bachelor ended and Lauren and Ben were finally able to come out of hiding and publicly announce themselves as a couple. We quickly found out that Lauren had quit her job at Alaska Airlines and moved to Denver, Colorado to be with Higgins. She said she was getting recognized by customers too often and it was getting hard to do her job properly. For a while afterwards, she had to re-evaluate what she wanted to do whether it would be working part-time as a flight attendant or pursuing new dreams as a blogger and interior designer. Since then she’s decided to launch her own lifestyle blog called Sparkle in her Eye which seems to be doing quite well! Meanwhile, after a long break from work, Higgins has returned to his job at Talisys, a financial services company in Denver.
9. The Bachelor Experience
Both Lauren and Ben owe their thanks to The Bachelor for giving them the platform to become reality stars and pursue new careers, but the experience wasn’t all good. Even though in the end they probably wouldn’t do it any differently since it led them to each other, Bushnell still admits that it had an impact on their relationship. “There are so many weird elements to being in a relationship after ‘The Bachelor.’ We’ve gotten in arguments like any other couple, but about some things that other couples wouldn’t have to fight about, like the fact that we met when he was dating other women. You can say that’s what I signed up for, but it’s still real life and it’s still hard,” Bushnell told People.
