Ben Higgins The Bachelor

You might be wondering where my Bachelor talk has been the past few weeks and I wish I had a better excuse other than.. it just hasn’t happened. Things have been slow moving in the blog world over here in 2016 with so many other things going on, BUT – – don’t you worry, I HAVE been watching and I’m ready to start sharing my thoughts with you! Join me each week for Bachelor Banter where we’ll talk all about what happened each week and I’ll share my thoughts.

Bachelor Banter with The Best Crowe's Nest | My Pick's for Bachelor Ben


Without getting into too much detail since we’re now several days past week 2, I wanted to at least start sharing my pick’s for Ben’s heart each week. Lord knows opinions are going to change on a weekly basis, so I thought it would be fun to document my thoughts for who I think is his “perfect match” as the drama unfolds. Would love if you would share whether you agree or not too!

If you want to hear what I’ve had to say about previous season, head HERE… it’s fun to look back on the train wrecks of the past! 😉

I’m trying SUPER hard not to read any spoilers this season, so don’t spoil it for me if you’ve given in to the urge, but join me each week on Twitter, Facebook, & even Instagram or Periscope (@kelchristina) some nights too as we chat The Bachelor then come back here as the week goes on to see my pick for each week!

This week was hard, because I am a HUGE fan (still) of Becca.. and she’s a Sigma Kappa alum, so we’re sort of sisters, right!? But my Week 2 pick for Bachelor Ben iiiiissss….

Amanda Stantonn The Bachelor | Ben Higgins


I absolutely ADORE Amanda! She is so sweet and when Ben wanted to make barrettes for her girls during the cocktail party, it made my heart go S-W-O-O-N! Seriously, like I was a little sad to realize he was younger than me and made me feel like a cougar (and I’m not even 30 yet!!!) But really… I think they are so sweet and I hope she gets a chance on some real one on one time with Ben next week!! Also, follow her on Instagram (that’s where I snagged this cute snapshot of her and the “Perfect Ben!!”)

What do you think? Do you agree or disagree? Sound off on the comments & join me on social media to chat!

    Well, we don’t have any tv channels so I can’t watch my reality shows any more but I used to love keeping up on The Bachelor, Amazing Race, and Big Brother! When they first started (quite a few years ago), they were pretty intriguing to watch!
