Why Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell Chose to Go into the Woods Alone with Bachelorette Bad Boy Chad Johnson

Posted on

The Chad Bear is back to roam the woods one last time!

The Bachelor‘s Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell stopped by PEOPLE Now to discuss their upcoming reality show, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? and one important guest star — Bachelorette’s season 20 villain, Chad Johnson.

“Chad still is Chad,” Higgins tells PEOPLE Now about Johnson’s appearance on the new reality show.

“He does his whistle,” adds Bushnell, 26.

Following Johnson’s run on JoJo Fletcher‘s season and a brief stint on Bachelor in Paradise season 3, the 29-year-old luxury real estate agent is set to return to reality TV during a camping trip in the woods with the couple.

“We invited Chad… we just kind of wanted to give him some redemption and I think that’s what the whole episode is about,” Higgins explains. “You’ll see Chad in his element once again.”

When the couple, who currently live together in Denver, were asked if Chad is possibly just misunderstood, 28-year-old Higgins quickly says, “We like to think so.”

Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? premieres Tuesday, Oct. 11 (8 p.m. EST) on Freeform.
