Perfect Ben no more?!
On The Bachelor's Feb. 29 episode, fans were shocked to see Ben Higgins do something no Bachelor has done in 20 seasons of the show: He said "I love you" to two of the final three women, Lauren B. and JoJo. They were shocked. We were shocked. America was shocked. Ben was, too, but not because of what he said, but the reaction to it, with Bachelor Nation accusing him of breaking the rules.
So was he ever actually told he couldn't drop the L-word to anyone by producers when he first signed on to be the Bachelor?
"Never," Ben told E! News' Will Marfuggi at the Women Tell special, which will air March 7."I don't know of a rule book, maybe there is one, maybe fans out there are hiding...I keep hearing he broke all the rules. I didn't know there were rules to this."
