Ben Flajnik "Frontrunner" to Become The Bachelor, Sources Report

by at . Comments

Sorry, Jennifer Love Hewitt. You may soon have plenty of competition for the affections of 28-year-old Sonoma, Calif., winery owner Ben Flajnik.

Show insiders say that Flajnik, who proposed to Ashley Hebert but was turned down on The Bachelorette finale, may turn to reality TV again for love.

He's the frontrunner to be ABC's next Bachelor, but unlike Mitt Romney, he's popular with the show's base and not merely leading a weak field by default.

Ben and Ashley

"Everyone wants [Ben] to find the woman of his dreams," an insider said. "He loved Ashley," and millions fell in love with Ben Flajnik in turn.

Even host Chris Harrison is eager for Flajnik to find Mrs. Right. "Our fans would love to see him as the Bachelor," he said. "He'd be great."

Also being considered? Hebert's other rejected suitors Ames Brown, a portfolio manager, and Ryan Park, a solar energy executive, both 31.

Hebert, who rejected Flajnik, Brown and Park in favor of J.P. Rosenbaum, thinks any one of the three guys would make a great Bachelor.

What about you? Who would you like to see as The Bachelor?
