There is a lot of hate in Bachelor Nation and also a lot of love. Former Bachelor Ben Higgins and Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe are a good example. They didn’t find love together, but they are both happy and in love. And, they share a mutual respect for one another. They expressed those feelings during The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever!
Kaitlyn and Ben share a mutual respect
US Weekly shared details about what Ben and Kaitlyn had to say about each other. It’s nice to see such love and respect. Ben tweeted, “To be honest the @BacheloretteABC has been blessed with some incredible leads but I have had the gift of knowing @kaitlynbristowe and @JoelleFletcher personally & they are two of the best!” He continued,“So glad they found their partners but also shocked I can say I know them! #BachelorNation.”
Kaitlyn replied to Ben saying, “You precious man. We are all so lucky to know each other and relate to all the ups and downs.”

@chrisbharrison: “Ben, are you ready?” Me: Nope FYI, my answer 4 years later is the same. Have fun tonight #bachelornation you have been a part of my life for four years and I am so grateful. You have enhanced my life in so many ways. Tonight, laugh at me and with me but please show a tremendous amount of love and support to the best group of women on any season ever! Pull out your favorite drink, kick your feet up and then enjoy!
They are both in happy relationships
Ben and Kaitlyn’s respective seasons have aired during the Monday nights showings of The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever! They both got engaged at the end of their journeys. Ben was with Lauren Bushnell and Kaitlyn with Shawn Booth.
Since then they have all broken up and found true love. Kaitlyn is madly in love with Jason Tartick. Ben just proposed to girlfriend Jessica Clarke in March. Everyone is still waiting for Jason to pop the question to Bristowe. He had the chance after her condensed season aired, but decided he didn’t want their relationship tied to her past. Jason said, “This part of your life was five years ago, and it’s cool that they’re replaying it, greatest of all time seasons. But our story and our chapter don’t need to have any type of tie into what that was.”
As far as their past relationships, Ben admits he doesn’t keep in touch with Lauren. He said, “She’s married. I’m happy for her, and she found her partner.” He went on to say, “I mean, if she reached out saying, ‘Hey, how are you going to handle this? This is what’s sensitive to me …’ I would love to take that call from her, but I don’t think I’m needed in this moment for her.”
It’s great to relive old seasons of the show. However, fans are just as excited for the new leads to start filming. Clare Crawley and Matt James will soon start filming for their Bachelorette/Bachelor seasons. Stay tuned for more details as those dates near.
