He’ll totally screw up their lives, but somehow, they’ll feel good about it. Where Kate is all about planning and preparing, Ben is big on spontaneity and out-of-the-box ideas. But don’t let the Velcro wallet fool you – he’ll probably be a millionaire someday.
When Ben comes to crash on Kate’s couch for a few days, he finds a sad state of affairs. For the first time in their lives, Kate needs Ben’s help, and he’s determined to bring some much-needed chaos into her overly stable world. He starts by looking after Maddie so Kate can get back to making mistakes, since the one real “mistake” she’s made turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to her.
Always there to help with Ben’s crazy schemes is his partner-in-crime, TOMMY (Echo Kellum), who worships Ben like a hero and nurses a serious crush on Kate.
