If you’re like us, you've been counting down to The Bachelor 2016 starring Ben Higgins ever since Bachelor in Paradise wrapped up over the summer.

NEWS: The Bachelor Getting a Live After-Show

Chris Harrison announced The Bachelor premiere date during an episode of After Paradise, telling fans their favorite show would be back on January 4, 2016.

It's been a long haul, but we had plenty of scoop to keep us occupied this fall and winter (like fun spoilers!). Before learning a ton about the season from Reality SteveE! News also provided us with a few tidbits about Season 20.

Unlike Kaitlyn’s season of The Bachelorette where there were a ton of fun surprises, Ben’s season will be “straightforward” — more like the traditional Bachelor we all know and love. And it won’t be boring, in fact, it sounds like Ben will be way more fun to watch than Chris Soules.

“Chris has a very set, solidified life, and he wanted a woman who could fit in with it. Ben, of the other hand, is completely flexible,” says a source. “That's the advantage of him being so young … if he found the right woman, he'd be open to doing anything and going anywhere she wants."
