The Bachelor's Ben Higgins Might Be Running for Office!

Ben Higgins, the latest star of The Bachelor franchise, might be running for a seat in the Colorado House of Representatives!

The 28-year-old reality star is “seriously considering a run” to represent House District 4, according to The Colorado Independent.

Ben, who is engaged to Lauren Bushnell, has already launched a website in which people can sign up for updates on his campaign. He will be getting the support of the Republicans and running against the current seat holder, Speaker Pro Tem Dan Pabon, a Democrat.

Willie Pinkston, the Republican nominee for the district, plans on stepping down if Ben decides to run.

“Whatever lies ahead, love, grace, and hope are ideals that guide my life. I will take them with me into my next adventure,” Ben said in a statement. “Lauren and I aren’t sure yet what that will be, but in terms of representing House District 4, Willie Pinkston is an amazing person and any decision I make regarding entering the race will be based on what is best for Willie, his family and for Lauren and me.”

    Oh right he tells two women on national TV that he loves both of them at the same time. Actually he’d make a great politician.
