Meet Lauren B.

First One-on-One Date

However, it wasn't all fun and high flying adventures. Ben and Lauren B. really connected on another level when Ben opened up about his father's recent heart surgery.

Of course, when you are one of the standouts in a group of women competing for a man's attention, you are bound to make the others jealous. When Leah attacked Lauren B. for acting one way around the Bachelor and another around the other contestants, Ben stood up for his lady. The brief drama just made the couple's bond that much stronger.
