The hopeful actor explained to WHO that his short stay in paradise was unexpected, truly believing that he would be staying the length of the show.
“I thought positively that I would go to the very end, but what was meant to be was meant to be.”
But Ben doesn't believe his late arrival was a disadvantage, “again, I want to reflect on what I just said about thinking positively and obviously being hopeful that you bring new energy that no one has seen before,” he explained. “And I think that's what I did.”
“Given who I am, a driven, ambitious, person with a great ethos and person that is very compassionate and empathetic of others.”
When Ben arrived he was faced with the difficult decision to choose between single ladies Stella and Layla.
“I only had five minutes.” Ben revealed, explaining that he assessed his two options on “body language and the tone of their voice.”
But ultimately, he chose Stella, thanks to her “personality, drive and purpose.”
And if given the choice, Ben would “absolutely” make the same decision again in a heartbeat. “She looked like one of Charlie’s Angels!”
And this isn’t the end of audiences seeing Ben in the public domain, with the bombshell telling WHO that he would be open to other reality TV opportunities.
“I feel as though my personality and who I am as a person is something I want the world to discover. I am very interesting, very intrinsic, and I can pretty much talk about anything, anywhere, anytime!”
“I hope I left a legacy that will be remembered!”
