I'm pretty sure he turned 18 last season, so legality is not an issue. Ben's not a virgin or a misogynist — yet — so he's an all-around good deal, relatively speaking. He's young (i.e. malleable) and cute. Though he may have no income yet, he is heir to the Henrickson fortune and potentially a prophet. Basically, he's like the Prince William of Juniper Creek!
