Who says reality TV couples don't last?!
Former Bachelor stars Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell confirmed they will be starring in their own Freeform spinoff show, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, but the series was almost thrown out before it even began. Turns out, the couple was initially a little apprehensive about living life in front of the cameras again.

"In terms of reservations, I think when the idea first came about we both were very nervous," Lauren told E!. "You hear a lot about a reality TV curse or whatever, and I think most of that just becomes from the relationship then not being first because there are so many distractions around."

But, after a long discussion and possible weighing of pros and cons, the couple decided to give the show a try — as long as they both agree that their relationship comes first. "Nothing is going to get in the way, and it if does, we're going to have to reevaluate at that time," she continued.
Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After is scheduled to premiere in October on Freeform.
