Ben Higgins Refuses To Kiss “Bachelor” Contestant — WATCH VIDEO!
Ben Higgins refuses to kiss a contestant in a new clip from “The Bachelor.” Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, the new season of the ABC reality competition will premiere on January 4. A previously-released teaser showcased Higgins getting close to a number of women. But in a new promo, he expresses reservations when one contestant specifically asks for a kiss.
As it turns out, Higgins and 25-year-old real estate agent Lace have already smooched. She just wants another one. “I’m the only one that kissed him so far, and I’m not going to let Ben forget about me,” she tells the camera.
The preview then cuts to Lace saying to Higgins, “Is it awkward if I ask for another kiss?” Yes, yes it is. When the bachelor doesn’t immediately want to go in for a little makeout session, Lace calls him out for obviously appearing conflicted.
“Well, I think like going into this, my goal was to really get to know everybody,” Higgins explains. “Like, you’re gorgeous. It’s so easy to get sucked up in the physical part of the night — because everybody, like, you look gorgeous — that you forget to actually take time to talk.”
The rejection is interrupted by another contestant, who, as Lace puts it, “swoops up right when I want to go have a kiss with him, and he denies me.” She sarcastically adds in her confessional, “I don’t look like a fool or anything!” Check out the full video below, and tell us what you think.
