Know a Hero who Needs a Room Makeover? Lauren and I are teaming up to help a deserving person or family in need of home renovations and repairs. We’re searching for an unsung hero in the Denver area -- an inspiring family or individual who constantly puts others before themselves. Examples of the type of people we are looking for: • A couple who has taken in so many foster children that they could really use an addition built on their house. • A special teacher who spends all her money on her students so she can't afford the kitchen remodel she desperately needs. • A decorated Army veteran that gives back to the community and some day dreams of finishing their basement. Nominate your community hero by sending their story, recent photos, contact information and needed home repairs to HigginsHeroes2016@gmail.com The person you are nominating must be willing to appear on national TV. Due to a high volume of submissions we can not respond to all nominations, a Producer will get in touch if your submission is being considered.
Former Bachelor Ben Higgins and his fiancée, Lauren Bushnell, have volunteered to help repair and renovate the home of a lucky contest winner, Higgins announced Saturday on Instagram. They're taking nominations over email for "an unsung hero in the Denver area," he wrote.
He elaborated by explaining that the sort of people they have in mind might be "a couple who has taken in so many foster children that they could really use an addition built on their house" or "a special teacher who spends all her money on her students so she can't afford the kitchen remodel she desperately needs."
It's unclear what show the winner appear on, but Higgins wrote that the winners need to be willing to be on TV. Could this be part of their Bachelor spin-off Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?
Higgins told Entertainment Weekly in an interview about the new show that getting involved in his community is important to him. "Most of my life, I’ve been interested in the issues that are surrounding the areas that I live in," he said.
Though he ultimately decided against running for the Colorado state House, it looks like he's still doing his part to have an impact on Denver.
