‘Bachelor’ Ben Higgins Chooses Lauren Bushnell In Season Finale, Viewers Vent Their Frustrations Across Social Media
Another season of The Bachelor has come to its fairy tale ending, and with its March 14 season finale a timeless new power couple and earth shattering romance has been unleashed: titular bachelor Ben Higgins and his lady love du jour, Lauren Bushnell.
As PEOPLE reports, the 27-year-old business analyst proposed to the 26-year-old flight attendant with a 4.25 carat diamond ring during the show's finale on Monday evening.
"Everything that happened led me to Lauren. I couldn't be happier," Higgins told PEOPLE in an interview for the magazine's cover story, adding that with regards to telling runner-up JoJo Fletcher that he loved her during an episode, he has no regrets.
Meanwhile, some fans of the show seem frustrated with Higgins' final choice, many voicing that they had been rooting for Fletcher to win.
"I laid bets on Jo-Jo as well.....seemed more genuine and she took her time to get to know him in the short time they had!!!," one user expressed on Facebook.
But on Twitter, one viewer summed up the greater sentiment with an honest, impassioned and expressive "WHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY NOOOOOoooOOoOoOoo UUGGGgggHHHHHH"
In any event, congratulations Ben and Lauren!
