If you watched Bachelor in Paradise’s second episode, you probably realized Ben Scott was the dude who secretly had a girlfriend back home. Yes, that old franchise cliché. Now that we’ve seen all the drama go down between him and the other contestants in the house, we have to know more about Ben’s lady love.


As we previously reported, Ben’s hometown flame is a beautiful model named Lindsay Higgins. Just like the single dad, Lindsay hails from Dallas and the two actually began dating right before the show went into production — like a matter of days! So because things were so new, Desiree Hartsock’s ex decided to still head to Tulum, Mexico, with the hopes that “it might be a good opportunity to help him open other doors.”

Unfortunately, it looks like the only doors that Mister “Watch out, Hollywood!” opened on the show led to more angry confrontations with his fellow castmates. But luckily for Ben, it looks like Lindsay didn’t mind his Mexican adventure as they’re still together, so at least he walked away with love!

Now, more about Lindsay. At 5-foot-11, this blue-eyed, brunette lovely works with the Kim Dawson Agency in Dallas, a modeling institution that launched the careers of fashion industry heavyweights like Erin Wasson and Bridget Hall, as well as actors like Selena Gomez, Chace Crawford, Demi Lovato, and many more. In other words, this girl’s got what it takes!

Not only can she be spotted on the high fashion and commercial scene, but 20-something Linds is an event planner and student. She can also count “good girlfriend to Ben” among her roles, as she has become a solid part of the reality star’s life in recent months, even traveling to Las Vegas in May for his 30th birthday.

“They go to church together, hang at Ben’s bar [Trophy Room]... she even hangs with his son. They are super happy together, and are definitely not trying to hide anything,” sources told Wetpaint of the pair.

Adding to that, a little while back, Ben and Lindsay made things even more official and got a dog together! Now, if that’s not serious, we don’t know what is.

So judge this Texas entrepreneur all you want, but it looks like he’s found his forever love even if it wasn’t in paradise.

What do you think of Ben and Lindsay’s relationship? Do you think he was wrong for going on the show when he had someone special back home? Sound off in the comments below.
