From where he was raised to his growing business, here are five fast facts about former reality star, Ben Higgins.
In the Beginning
Higgins was born in Warsaw, Indiana, a fairly small town in the midwest. He then attended Indiana University and graduated with a degree in Public Affairs. Despite being born and raised in Indiana, he currently lives in Colorado.
Following his time on The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, Higgins announced he would be running for a seat in the Colorado House of Representatives. However, just a couple of days after making the announcement, he withdrew his candidacy.
Double Dose of Reality
