For those who don’t remember, Lindsay spoke out saying “Ben 1,000 percent wants to be the Bachelor. I beg producers, please don’t do it. We’ve been here before with the person who is so desperate to be the lead. It never works out. When they want it so badly, when they’ve been planning for it, calculating, making certain moves to get to that point and then you give it to them, it always messes up.”
Smith shot down the chatter, saying “I never had any intentions of doing anything more.” He simply agreed to go back on the show just in hope that something “great” might happen.
