Yes, that was Ben Taylor on ‘The Bachelor’

Wait, isn’t that…? That’s what we muttered Monday when Ben Taylor’s high cheekbones suddenly flashed on our TV screen during this week’s episode of “The Bachelor.” The Martha’s Vineyard-based singer-songwriter son of James Taylor and Carly Simon appeared briefly during a one-on-one date between bachelor Sean Lowe and one of his prospective sweethearts. Taylor treated the lovebirds to a special private concert, playing a cover of Sade’s “By Your Side.” Taylor has a new CD, “Listening,” which he’s been hyping with appearances on VH1, Fox, NPR, and, now, “The Bachelor.”
