In our “The Bachelor” poll from earlier in the month, we asked our readers who their favorite suitor is from all 21 seasons, and there was a tie for the top spot between current beau Nick Viall and Season 20 stand-out Ben Higgins. Both men nabbed exactly 22% of the vote, so in our new poll below we’ve pitted Nick vs. Ben against each other for the title of all-time favorite bachelor. For a refresher of all the men who gained fame by breaking hearts on reality TV, click through our photo gallery that details every bachelor so far.
Nick is a 36-year-old software sales executive from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His final two choices were Raven Gates, a 25-year-old fashion boutique owner from Hoxie, AR and Vanessa Grimaldi, a 29-year-old special education teacher from Montreal, Quebec. Nick ultimately proposed to Vanessa and she accepted. However, their marriage will have to wait as he’s otherwise occupied with the next season of “Dancing with the Stars.”
Ben’s original run was from January 4 to March 14, 2016. He was 26 during the filming and a software salesman from Warsaw, Indiana. He chose Lauren Bushnell at the end of the show, with the runner-up being Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher (who became the next “Bachelorette”). Ben proposed in the finale and Lauren said yes. To date, the couple is still engaged.
