The Bachelor, Ben Higgins


Moooore. Moooooore please!

That's what we always whisper to ourselves on Monday nights after just two measly hours of our favorite terrible amazing awful best show ever, The Bachelor.  

According to The Bachelor and Chris Harrison's twitter accounts, we won't have to suffer much longer, because live shows are coming back to Bachelor nation.

After a successful run of live shows following this summer's season of Bachelor in Paradise, Chris Harrison is returning to that weird living room (probably?) to host another live after show and further his attempts to render us Bachelor recappers totally obsolete, which is a thing we'll pretend to be mad about while also recognizing that it is about time, ABC! 

The live hour-long show, called "Bachelor Live," will air directly after The Bachelor and will feature celeb guests, Bachelor-related guests, deleted scenes, and live calls from viewers.

James Gunn—yes, the same James Gunn who gave us hot Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy—showed up on an episode of After Paradise, so it's possible that anything could happen on Bachelor Live. Anything! Literally anything you can think of.

No word yet on whether Harrison's co-host from After Paradise, Jenny Mollen, will return for Bachelor Live, or whether Harrison or any of his guests will even be able to speak on live TV after being swept off their feet by Bachelor Ben Higgins for two hours, but we will definitely keep you posted as we continue our countdown to Ben's debut on January 4.

Just 17 days, everyone. We can make it!

The Bachelor, season 20, premieres Jan. 4 at 8 p.m. on ABC, followed by Bachelor Live.
