Ranking the top 10 Bachelors from The Bachelor franchise shouldn’t be that hard right? Every season, the producers try to convince audiences that their current Bachelor is #marriagegoals and has the full package. However, by the finale, viewers seem to be pretty much done with the lead and his entire personality. Reality television can be a fickle place.

Believe it or not, it would be easier to make a list of the worst bachelors the franchise has ever seen, but alas, we do like a challenge around here.

So, who are the top 10 best bachelors in bachelor history? (Only a true superfan would have heard that in Chris Harrison’s voice.)

1. Sean Lowe

Ah yes, the Bachelor franchise recruited a blonde-haired, blue-eyed, all-American (born again) virgin and we’re not talking about Colton Underwood. Back in the day, Sean Lowe held the trophy for most likely to live in a house with a white picket fence, own a minivan, and spawn 2.2 kids along with a golden retriever.

Unsurprisingly, he is still married to his final choice, Catherine Giudice, after the pair wed in an ABC special. They share 2 boys and a girl, and look like the quintessential perfect family viewers always imagined Sean would have. Apparently, nice guys do finish first!

2. Ben Higgins

After Juan Pablo, Bachelor producers realized they needed to up the charm factor with their leads. While Chris Soules (Aka Prince Farming) was a decent choice, he wasn’t as likable as the next lead, the ever loveable (though claimed he wasn’t) Ben Higgins.
