Despite Ben Higgins' cool demeanor on this season of The Bachelor, Life & Style has learned that he nearly unraveled while shooting and had to turn to his mother for support and counsel.
“Ben was so upset in the middle of filming that he was ready to quit a few times because of all the drama with the girls fighting,” a production insider reveals to the mag.
"He needed a pep talk from his mom,” reveals the source. In fact, Ben’s mom returns late in the season to advise him on his final choices.
“It was so stressful for Ben,” says an insider. “There were many times where he didn’t know if he could continue the season.”
