Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell may be in love, but fans are so not in love with their new reality show. Higgins, the suitor on season 20 of The Bachelor, pledged his devotion to Bushnell during the show's finale. Now, their new Freeform series, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, is setting their romance in the real world.

released the series' first four episodes for fans to binge-watch over the weekend, but, so far, viewers haven't been singing the new show's praises.
