Ben Zorn has been looking for love on TV since he was on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette. Ben Z. came to Bachelor in Paradise this season in hopes of finally finding it, but it seemed he was already in love — with his dog.

All season, Ben Z. has been talking about his new puppy, Zeus. He has said things like, “I’m not here to waste my time. I have a dog back home that I miss very much,” and he told Sarah Vendal, “I have a dog. He’s my life right now … my life kind of revolves around him.”

So it was no surprise that on Monday night’s episode of Bachelor in Paradise, Ben Z. decided to return home to the love of his life. Ben Z. said, “I love everybody here, and I’ve had an absolute blast, but there’s more love that I have for my dog, Zeus, than there is potential left here at Paradise.”

And while he didn’t find a wife, it seems Ben has all the love he can handle in his life right now. Before getting into the van to head to the airport, Ben Z. said, “I’m gonna call my dad tonight and let him know that I’m coming home, and to start packing up the kennel, ’cause Zeus is coming home tomorrow night. I can’t wait to see him. I get to see Zeus, finally!”

Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC. Watch clips and full episodes of Bachelor in Paradise free on Yahoo View.
