For all we know, Ben Higgins may love country music. He has that kind of Midwestern, plaid-shirt vibe about him.
But alas, the latest guy looking for love on The Bachelor, which premiered on Monday (Jan. 4), is not a country star.
What if, someday, the reality-show producers chose a single country star to come on the show to find a worthy mate?
It’s a good start. But if we’re really going to push for a country Bachelor, we might need to go in with a longer list of recommendations. So I’d like to add a few more:
The recently-divorced Jake Owen, who will eventually start dating again and is sexier than any guy who has ever walked onto the set of The Bachelor.
Blake Shelton, who is currently romantically linked to Gwen Stefani, but is far from putting a ring on it.
