Ep 11 - Ben Higgins: The Bachelor talks Addiction, Loneliness, and Isolation
Ben Higgins sits down with Paula to talk about overcoming loneliness and isolation by sharing your truth, the relationships that have helped define him, and his dark battle with addiction to painkillers. He shares what ultimately drove him to sign up for ABC's The Bachelor and why his fiancÚ will never watch his season of the show. Ben also talks about his commitment to abstinence before marriage and why it has become a topic of contention in their relationship. The self-proclaimed hopeless romantic explains why it was important for him to deconstruct the fairytale view of love and romance in his new book, "Alone in Plain Sight."
