By far the tallest member of Cadenza, Ben  blames this on some magic beans he was given as a child, and now by Nick’s standards he's a giant. He never meant to join Cadenza; walking past outside the rooms where they were auditioning, his stomach rumbled, and a couple of days later he received an email offering him a place. Ben’s massive ego makes it hard for him to accept endless walking bass lines - however, his secret dream is to one day start his own rival a cappella group called CaBenza, where he gets all the solos and no one gets to say ‘stand at the back’.
