Ben Flajnik as The Bachelor: Mixed Emotions?

by at . Comments

Ben Flajnik, whose marriage proposal Ashley Hebert turned down on the season finale of The Bachelorette, will be the next Bachelor, sources confirmed yesterday.

With one possible exception (Ames Brown) Ben was the guy most fans seemed to want in the starring role, especially after the final few Bachelorette episodes.

Similar to Chris Lambton a year ago, however, we question whether the show is actually beneath Ben Flajnik. Will it end up tarnishing our opinion of him?

Moreover, will producers actually find 25 women worthy of him?

Ashley Hebert, Ben Flajnik

Much as we're fans of Ben, part of us feels he'd be better off going back to his (admittedly awesome) old life in Sonoma, leaving the contrived nonsense behind.

You know, let the fame whores like Jake Pavelka or Brad Womack to entertain us, while continuing to be the man. We could accept that if it were his decision.

It's not, though, and while we have reservations, it's still way better to genuinely like The Bachelor than not, which will be the case for the first time since Jason.

He the show seriously enough to get upset when he was rejected, but not so much so that he couldn't reflect on it with a sense of clarity and self-awareness.

He cried while discussing his late father, apologized to his mom on TV, and even thanked Ashley for helping him open up. Okay, we're sold. How about you?

Ben Flajnik as The Bachelor: Good choice?


I think Ryan Park should be the next Bachelor. He surely got the short end of the stick when he only got the one-on-one date towards the end and he didn't get a chance to show Ashley how awesome he is personally and professionally. She had the right instinct in the beginning choosing him for the "First Impression Rose" but along the way, she got so side-tracked from all the drama of Bentley, William, Jeff the Mask, etc. I'm always for the underdogs and for giving them a second chance at happiness so Ryan should really be the next Bachelor. I think he is a wonderful person, a perfect gentleman, and a very smart, caring person. He deserves to find his happiness with a similarly awesome Bachelorette like Ashley Hebert.


I just paíd $20.87 for an íPad 2.64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasoníc Lumíx GF 1 Cámera that we got for $38.79 there arriving tomorrow by UP S.I will never pay such expensive retail príces in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LCD T V to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.
