Will I Be the Bachelor… Again?

Don’t forget to sign up for our email newsletter! You’ll receive exclusive content and blog updates from The Mahogany Workplace. And we promise we won’t flood your inbox.

“Will I be the next bachelor?” First off, let’s be clear, I’m positive that The Bachelor team has chosen someone who fits the role perfectly. I say this because I remember when I accepted the role of the bachelor; I worried the show selected me as a second choice — and I didn’t want to be a pity pick. So I do not want to communicate, whatsoever, that the future bachelor is a second choice. I’m confident they’ve selected a charming gentleman who the women will be really excited to meet (and at this point I have no clue who it is).

However, I’ve received a LOT of feedback about becoming the bachelor again. I never expected that I would need to respond to this question again. But life is funny and here I sit, considering my answer. To be clear, The Bachelor was a huge honor, and I will always be grateful for the opportunity. I just did not want to be at a place in life where being the bachelor was possible again.

Currently my pride and I are struggling to process whether the proposition is a compliment or a huge kick in the undercarriage. Regardless, I’ve committed to The Mahogany Workplace being a place of authenticity and transparency, so I’ll share my thoughts.

Let’s reminisce

To process this question fully, we need to start at the beginning. Three years ago, a coworker and friend submitted me to The Bachelorette. As a 25-year-old, I’d recently moved to Denver, ended an important romantic relationship, and started a new job — all huge life changes on their own. I was still a little naive to life outside of Indiana, the land of pork, corn, and Busch Light. The Bachelorette gave me an opportunity to expand my world views, meet new friends, and potentially fall in love. In short, my time on the show was nothing short of incredible. And my life changed forever in a positive way thanks to Kaitlyn Bristowe.

Side note: Can we talk about how great Kaitlyn was as a bachelorette? She deserves a ton of credit. After being the bachelor myself, I gained a ton of respect for the way she handled herself and stuck with the process. Kaitlyn was vulnerable with the men and the show in general. She treated each of her suitors with respect and ultimately followed her heart to one of the studliest men I know, Shawn Booth. Okay, okay, I will stop my tangent. But seriously I think very highly of Kaitlyn and Shawn.

Clearly, the friendships I made and things I experienced changed the way I view people and the world. Getting to know myself better through The Bachelorette (more to come on that in a future post) prepared me to start my search for my life partner on The Bachelor.

Being the bachelor: part 1

Let me be straightforward: Being the bachelor or bachelorette isn’t always fun and easy. For the most part the emotional experience puts both the contestants and bachelor or bachelorette in extremely difficult situations. By the end of the show everyone is completely drained, which you can expect when you begin and end 25-plus relationships in three months.

I recently said that anyone who comes out of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette emotionally unscathed entered the show with the wrong intentions. You need to prepare to be a support system, truth teller, bad news sharer, and love seeker to many people at one time. My point: After The Bachelorette I was emotionally prepared to take on The Bachelor and I was excited about the opportunity to meet my life partner.

So, will I be the bachelor again?

Great question! One of my favorite speakers and pastors is Andy Stanley from Atlanta, Georgia. I listen to him each week, and he packs his sermons with relatable insights. A few years ago he did a four-part series titled, “The Best Question Ever,” which suggests that with every decision we encounter in life, we must ask ourselves, “What is the wise thing to do?”

As a result of this series and book, I ask myself this question many times a day. It guides me to what is smart, God-centered, and pure. So, as I considered the possibility of being the bachelor again, I asked myself, “Would it be wise?” And to be honest, I do not feel like being the bachelor would be a wise choice for me right now. Here’s why:

  • I am not ready for another relationship to take place in the public eye.
  • I am not able to be the man I would want to be for the women participating in the experience. I sense that I couldn’t prepare my heart to get engaged six months after my previous engagement ended. (I’m focusing on loving others better in non-romantic settings.)
  • If I did the show again I’d want to ensure that my intentions were pure and I was doing it — wait for it — for the right reasons.
  • The scrutiny that would result from doing the show twice makes me hesitate to participate.
  • And last but not least I have some exciting things that I’m passionate about going on right now. And I do not want to neglect them (The Mahogany Workplace, Generous International, my full-time job at Talisys, and the “Almost Famous Podcast“).

Every decision we make comes with consequences. At this point in my life I do not believe I’m ready to be the bachelor again. However, with that being said, a lesson I’ve learned over the last few years: Don’t close doors to any possibilities. I’ve said, “I would never do that” too many times, and then I found myself doing that very thing a few months later. So, I’m not saying “never”; I’m just saying “not now.”

    The part I don’t understand, if you are in a relationship with God, why would you be sexually involved with a woman before marriage? I think talking to Emily Maynard Johnson (I think I got that right) could be very beneficial to you. She was both on the Bachelor and she was the Bachelorette. She eventually did it God’s way and is happily married. God Bless!

    Ben, this was a beautifully written blog post. I have my own blog, and I find myself on other people’s blogs often. The thing is, I usually don’t make it through reading someone else’s entire blog post because of the way most of them are written these days — quick and incomplete. Your post was extremely thorough and I can tell it was very well thought-out.

    Additionally, I respect your decision for not wanting to be The Bachelor again. All of your thoughts make perfect sense and if it’s just not the right time for you right now, then it’s just not the right time. Move at your own pace and follow your own path. Don’t let anyone make you feel pressure to do anything you aren’t ready to do. Keep up the good work and keep on following His plan for you!

    Always keep in mind Psalm 84:11. Praying that you see your singleness as a gift from God during this time. With your resources, I think you could do something truly honorable and upright in the eyes of the Lord.

As i slowly discovering and reading your blogs and seeing your IG posts ( dont worry, im not a stalker. 😊) I just enjoy reading sensible stuff and everything about life, love and passions. I can truly say, one would really evolve and become wiser when we exposed ourselves out there and go out of our comfor zones. Good job and keep doing what you love to do. And as for me, an unsolicited advice, dont do The Bachelor twice. Once is enough. And you are right by saying that you are not ready that your next relationship will be in the public eye again. You deserved that privacy. God speed. 😊

Having visited Honduras in 1998 with my husband (born & lived there til age 40) & my 2 sons; we were amazed how happy & helpful the people were even though the majority were living in extreme poverty!! My husband took pencils to his former schools & the excitement & pleasure over such a small thing was really amazing!! Kids crowded around like ants @ a picnic!! We also saw water being hauled by many women & children walking from their homes far away; to rivers & back to their homes again!! To many this was an all day; every day event!! So your program to get clean water & jobs raising crops for the Honduran people touches my heart!! Please keep up this wonderful program. GOD BLESS YOU!!! SINCERELY, KATHLEEN ARTICA

    Really thoughtful insight into the process, which we appreciate. One of my life mottos is taken from an incredible lady who I highly recommend, Brene Brown, who writes “Daring greatly is not about winning or losing, it’s about courage.” This is something I’ve tried applying in many aspects of my life, big and small, whether I’m saying yes or no because sometimes courage is saying no or not right now like you mention. I think when it comes to decision making, I seek out the advice of trusted friends and family, prayer and sometimes it even takes the saying of having 5 seconds of insane courage. When I moved from the heartland to Los Angeles for work with no roadmap, it took me a few months to actually say yes. When I then moved away from LA, I realized my dreams had changed and I felt fairly confident at that time it was the right move. I even applied for your season of the Bachelor, Ben, something I certainly never thought I would do…(that whole never say never) and it took an intense amount of decision making just to go through with an application. So I think big decisions cause us to pause for a bit and seek out what saying yes to any given decision might do or saying no might do as well. And ultimately we can trust God and ourselves in knowing we made the best decision at the time. Thanks for sharing so many great articles from you and your friends!

    Not sure if you read these litte comments.. but I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read the title of this, a little part of me was caught off guard and sort of jumping for joy because you were one of the most genuine bachelor’s in my opinion. However, I didn’t know what to really think about the question, but I think you answered/handled it perfectly!

    I am in quite the tough situation/need to make a decision right now in my life and I am not sure where to even start. I feel so pressured to make a decision instantly, and I feel like that is making my thoughts scramble. I just asked myself “Would it be wise?” Like you had asked yourself, and to be honest, that really is such a great question, even to start with. But my question is – how can you make a wise decision when you are pressed for time? How can you make any decision when your thoughts are flying every which way? What if both outcomes are good for you?

    No matter what, thank you for the post! Really gets the brain working.

If you haven’t listened to it already, Love, Sex, and Dating is one of his best series ever. I wish I had heard it when I was still dating.

    Ben,
    I love reading your writings. You have such a way with words beyond your years. You have so many exciting things going for you in your life right now! God has shaped you into such a lovely man and I wish you nothing but the best! I need to come to Denver to try out fierce45! Looks like a awesome workout! We need to go hit the course sometime too! ⛳️

    Ben,
    As never watching a single episode of the Bachelor or Bachelorette I learned who you were being from small town Indiana myself. I guess you could called it “fan” of the “giving Ben”. I love to see you use the opportunity God have you being on the Bachelor and now fame to bring light and support to organization such as Humanity and Hope. Please continue to let you light shine for God through your giving heart! He will always guide you down the right path even if that path may be a long, bumpy one!
    Much love and respect from Indiana ❤️

    Ben, great post. To be honest, I never got into watching the Bachelorette/Bachelor franchise of shows. I saw your page on IG and thought you would be inspirational to follow with your humanitarian work. Aside from that, you are pretty cute hahah. Anywho, your message on taking the opportunity to learn about yourself is something I find extremely relateable. I have been in relationships for the wrong reasons or just realizing I wasn’t ready. For the past few years, I have decided to work on myself – relationships with family/friends, career/grad school, mind/body, and my relationship with God; I am much happier. All my friends and family think it’s ridiculous that I’m single, should settle and stop being “picky”. However, I know plenty of people unhappy in their relationships from settling lol. From those happy ones, I notice their relationships that work come natural or “easy” in their methods to work together. I will continue to believe finding the right partner is in God’s plan, I believe that for you as well. Live your best life.

    Ben,
    Some crazy late night Instagram creeping creeping (not literally) lead me to this blog post! After reading such a well thought post, I absolutely had to write this reply.
    I believe you are making a very wise decision. You seem like such a genuine person, and as long as you are doing right by God he will do right by you. You will be in my prayers! From one stranger to another, take care!
    Texas! <3

    BH,
    I think it’s pretty bold of you to have a blog where you have this way of almost venting. In a way this must be a little therapeutic. I am in my late 20’s and got out of a serious relationship about a year ago, and I too did some similar things such as yourself. Things I didn’t think would ever help me heal, but then I realized it was time for myself combined with my faith that I needed most. With that it motivated me to make a career change to do something that made me actually want to go to work and feel like I had done something worth while.
    Anyways, this is completely out of character for me. I don’t respond to blogs or things like this ever, but something about yours caught my eye and it was very relatable. Keep writing.
