When former Ben Higgins sent home Becca Tilley during Season 20, I was crushed over my television BFF. Higgins lately opened up on iHeartRadio to talk about why he sent Tilley home, and it will destroy you.
In case you didn’t know, Becca Tilley is major #goals.
Everyone on Twitter( and in life) agrees.
She’s sweet, hilarious, has the best hair, and loves talking about Same, Becca, same. America was stabbed in the heart when Higgins sent her home right before hometowns. What built it even more heartbreaking was Tilley asked to be on this season because she was genuinely interested in dating Ben.
During the season, they had this conversation where she makes Higgins promise not to blindside her. Ugh, heartbreaking. Higgins ended up opting Lauren Bushnell at the end of the season instead, butthe two have recently called it ceases.
Fast forward to June 29. Tilley joins former contestant, Ashley Iaconetti, and Ben Higgins on the. What’s more awkward than hanging out with an ex? Talking through why he dumped you.
Higgins explained in the podcast,
I knew that Lauren[ Bushnell] was someone who was extremely special to me To bring back Becca to her hometown would have been so hard on her and her family I ensure it with Nick’s[ Viall] family, how emotional it was for his second hometown They were so torn with that. Families don’t sign on for this. We do.
Higgins definitely didn’t expect how complicated the season would be. He said,
If I could’ve taken Becca to Jamaica, I would’ve loved to. But it wasn’t right so I had to do the hard thing and send her home from Warsaw[ Indiana] That was a terrible situation I did have to let Becca go, it wasn’t fun, I could’ve probably done it better
He did add in,
She rent me a pretty good one that night on the bench.
So sad. Why couldn’t he only have loved her ?!? Actually, the two remain friends, and the entire podcast is in good humor. Since the demonstrate, Tilley dated former contestant, Robert Graham. Funny, right?
They were the cutest couple, but broke up in May, according to E! News.
All in all, Ben Higgins sent Becca Tilley home to try and do the right thing. America thought it was the incorrect selection, but that’s a conversation to have over wine.
