Former Bachelor star Ben Higgins is setting the record straight on those rumors Colton Underwood quit the show. Though judging by last night’s episode it appears Underwood decides to walk away from the show for at least a little bit, Higgins recently revealed The Bachelor can’t actually quit.
In fact, according to Higgins, the only night you’d really be able to call it quits on the show is night one.
“Nobody actually quits the show. You’re the Bachelor, once you sign up, no matter what, your story has already been told,” he told Entertainment Tonight.
“If you want to walk out after night one you can do that, I guess, but it doesn’t really mean you quit the show, it just means the show is going to look a lot different.”
He continued, “There’s no actual quitting. Once you sign your name on the dotted line and show up, you’re there. If you think you’ve quit, you haven’t, the ending might just look a lot different!”
Despite the drama during this week’s episode, Higgins says it’s what makes the show great.
“[The surprises] are the beauty of the show,” he says. “I don’t understand how every season they get something new!”
He continued, “He’s young like I was. Maybe he hasn’t dated as much… but in feeling [the emotions of] the cast, he’s done a great job.”
Meanwhile, Higgins has moved on with his new girlfriend Jessica Clarke and seems happier than ever.
“New to this…But this is what cute couples do right?” he recently captioned a sweet photo of the couple.
The couple recently went public on Instagram after a few months of dating privately.
