Season 20 of The Bachelor is about to kick off next week, and the sneak peaks released so far have promised an exciting season as 28 lucky ladies fight for the hand of The Bachelor Ben Higgins!

In the newest teaser released by ABC, Ben Higgins is seen rejecting a kiss from one of the girls who are fighting for his affections. The contestant, Lace, is shown asking him for a second kiss as she feels that the first one the two shared could have been better.  Click here to watch the trailer.

Ben turns Lace down, however, saying “I wanted to make sure we spent our time getting to know each other one on one, and not necessarily kissing or making out the whole the time.”

As always during The Bachelor, though, the drama isn’t just between the ladies and the man they are trying to win over, but there’s plenty of it between the contestants as well. Another contestant, Leah, is seen sporting a black eye and saying, “She hit me,” although we don’t know yet who ‘she’ is.

Now that you’ve seen the trailer, here’s what you need to know about this season’s eligible man, the bachelor Ben Higgins.

Ben Higgins may be quite a looker, but there’s definitely more to him than that. A businessman with brains, Ben is a graduate of Indiana University with a B.S. in Business Administration. The ex of The Bachelorette’s Kaitlyn Bristowe, Ben Higgins already proved that he’s a good family man when he previously competed for her.

Additionally, the bachelor Ben Higgins appears to be a religious man, and has a tattoo quoting the Bible which says, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” This doesn’t mean he practices abstinence, however, as we already know that he isn’t a virgin because Kaitlyn asked him outright during her season on The Bachelorette.

In addition to Ben Higgins, there will be 28 lovely ladies featured on this season. Here is what we know about them so far.
