Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? Season 1 Episode 7
What Happens In Vegas
On Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? Season 1 Episode 7, Ben and Lauren are all smiles on their way to Vegas for their bachelor and bachelorette parties. However, the trip is more awkward than fun for the couple because their friends do not know that the wedding is called off.
Lauren's friends, which include Bachelor alums Ashley I, Emily, Haley and Amanda, enjoy strippers, a spa day and a party by the pool. Lauren dodges questions about the wedding and feels awkward about the situation throughout the episode. The twins end up spilling the beans to Ashley I and she worries that if Ben and Lauren can't make it work, no one can. At dinner, Lauren opens up about therapy with Ben.
Ben is sipping whiskey and playing golf with his childhood friends and Bachelorette alums JJ, Tanner and Jared. It doesn't take long for Ben to confess to his friends that the wedding isn't happening, and all of them express their concern because they think Lauren is perfect for Ben. Tanner, who married Jade less than a year after meeting her on Bachelor in Paradise, gives him advice to just jump in and figure the rest out later.
After watching their story projected on a screen in downtown Vegas, Ben calls Lauren and when they meet up, he tells her the wedding is back on.
