Ben is an entrepreneur from Texas who joined The Bachelorette season 9 to compete for Desiree Hartsock. He enjoys doing fun activities while on a date and is looking forward to meet a sociable yet family oriented woman. During the competition, he endured a lot of criticisms for bringing his son in the premiere and "stealing" time with Desiree. Other contestants also claimed that he's not there for the right reasons. During his two-on-one date with Desiree and Michael, he was aggressively confronted by Michael, leading to a very awkward date.
He didn't get a rose and was therefore eliminated.
