Ben Higgins of “The Bachelor” announced that he was starting a political career, but then one day later said that he had changed his mind. Of course when this happened Ben didn’t explain any of the details to his fans. Now Reality Steve is sharing that ABC was the reason that he quit so soon.
It turns out that ABC talked him into leaving his political career by threatening to take things away from him. Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are not married yet, but that is in the works. Of course, they want ABC to pay for their big wedding day and don’t want anything to mess this up.
Basically, it turns out that ABC was scared of politics in the franchise, and so they fought it. They were able to convince Ben to quit his political career before it even really started. Sources say they threatened to take away cash from things for the show and even their wedding. Ben must not have liked that idea because he pulled out right away.
