Ben Higgins, who was previously vying for the heart of recent Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, is now the focus of attention for a bevy of beauties during the upcoming 20th season of The Bachelor -- and he's already getting some love from a couple of former Bachelor stars.
Sean Lowe and his wife Catherine -- who ended up engaged at the end of the 17th season of The Bachelor and tied the knot a year later -- had some kind words for Ben before his search for a soulmate begins on TV when ET caught up with the couple.
"I think he's sincere in the fact that he really wants to find a wife," Sean said. "I think he's a great guy looking for a good girl with good morals. So I hope one of the 25 is a good match so he can join the married club with us."
Sean and Catherine have seen quite a few Bachelor and Bachelorette relationships come and go since their storybook season in 2013, and they have some solid advice for other contestants and star who are looking to find real love.
"The only thing I ever tell people is to look past the fancy dates and really look at the woman," Sean said. "Look at her heart and see if you can imagine spending the rest of your life with her."
Catherine doesn't seem to think Ben will have any problem finding the right girl, explaining, "He's gonna lay it all out there and be sweet and be honest and be just so genuine."
"[Ben has] such a level head on his shoulders he doesn't need my advice," Sean added. "Just have fun with it all."
Watch Ben's journey to find love when season 20 of The Bachelor kicks off Jan. 4, at 8 p.m. PT/ET, 7 p.m. CT. on ABC.
