For the first time, Ben Higgins tells of a health shock that he experienced during his studies.
In search of his happy life in 2016, the bestselling author wasn’t feeling particularly good. In fact, he had a parasite in his gut that appeared right at the start of the shooting.
“The craziest thing that has ever happened to me in this franchise, and which I can now speak to openly, is that I had a massive parasite all the time on the show,” he shared on the Fubo Sports podcast, Drinks With Binks. “I was in Honduras – a country I love – for a wedding. I have a parasite in my stomach.”
Ben continued, “I’ve got an incredible stomach flu for the three months of the season, I’m losing 30 pounds. From start to finish.”
