'The Bachelor' 2016: Here's What Happens in Ben Higgins's Season 20

Are you ready for the most dramatic season of "The Bachelor" ever? How about at least since the one that aired last year? "Bachelor" creator Mike Fleiss tweeted that Ben Higgins's upcoming Season 20 (starting January 4, 2016) is his "favorite season since Jason and Molly." Considering Jason Mesnick didn't even pick Molly Malaney and that was the most controversial season of its time, that may be a sign for this round too.

Ben does give off a Jason-ish vibe, which could be good in the long run, since Jason and Molly are now married and beloved leaders of Bachelor Nation. Jason is one of three past Bachelors who will actually return on Ben's premiere to offer advice.

ABC just released details on the big 2016 premiere, plus scoop on Ben's upcoming dates, adding that contestant bios will be released soon. There are also spoilers on what happens in the premiere and finale,
