Former “Bachelorette” contestant Ben Higgins is back, and this time he is dishing out the roses on ABC’s long-running dating show.
The 26-year-old software salesman from Denver, Colorado, met the 28 women vying for his affection on Monday during the Season 20 premiere of “The Bachelor,” and there are some unique prospects to say the least.

Cowgirl Meagan tried to woo the small-town boy by bringing out her mini-horse, Huey, much to Higgins’ surprise and confusion.
JoJo went even further on the crazy train by running out wearing a unicorn mask and proclaiming, “so unicorns do exist … I think I’m yours.”
“I hope the next girl rips off her human mask to reveal a horse underneath,” was the deadpan social media response.
Meanwhile, Tiara from Redmond, Washington, got Twitter clucking by claiming she is a “chicken enthusiast.”
As for Ben, he just wants to “find the woman that I can say, ‘I love you,’ to and she can say, ‘I love you back,’ and I know that it’s true, and it’s real,” he told the cameras.
And amid the mayhem, there was one girl who definitely stood out for him — news anchor Olivia, who was given the First Impression Rose.
“Coming here, taking that risk, leaving a job, stepping into the situation is incredible,” he told her. “You stood out to me tonight.”
