Ben Flajnik to Star as The Bachelor!

by at . Comments

Ben Flajnik won over many hearts this season on The Bachelorette.

Ashley Hebert shattered his on the season finale, leaving the Californian dazed after he got down on one knee to propose to her. It was difficult to watch.

He's back on his feet emotionally, however, and will soon get a second chance at reality TV love: Sources report Wednesday that he's the next Bachelor!

The 28-year-old winemaker is the next star of the ABC hit, Us reports. The new season will begin early next year, with Ben doling out the roses.

Ben was noticeably surprised - and upset - when Ashley rejected him.

Though ABC has yet to announce its choice, Ben's strong popularity with fans made him a consensus top pick despite other worthy contenders for the spot.

"They think he'll be ratings gold," says the insider of Flajnik, a favorite of viewers. "His [August 6] date with Jennifer Love Hewitt was icing on the cake!"

Shortly after The Bachelorette finale, Ben Flajnik posted a Tweet that implied (though didn't directly say) he'd been offered the chance to star on The Bachelor.

Looks like he took it. January can't get here fast enough.

I am devastated that they chose him. He's so annoying. And how can anyone like his hair? I guess it's a love him or hate him... and I can't stand him. But I'm only from Delaware so who cares what I think?

I love Ben to pieces but we need someone new...it is getting to the point of being boring...come on...I agree get someone new. I want to keep watching but I certaintly need an incentive at this point for the Bachorlette as well. It is so predictable..we practically know everything that is going to happen before it happens!!!

Nice guy, that Ben. Hope he finds a good mate. Ashley wasn't the one for him. I knew that. God Bless, Ben. Stay as nice as you are!

He cut off all his gorgeous hair. I almost didn't recognize him. He needs to let it grow back out. =(

Ben was my pick for Ashley, not JP. So, I hope Ben finds who he's looking for as The Bachelor, and makes a good choice. Try to avoid the not-so-nice, vindictive, manipulative ones. Ben has charisma, and good looks. I am sure there are plenty of nice girls out there for him. Go for it and good luck, Ben. In that photo he resembles Rafa Nadal.

Nikki, We have had different nationalites as contestants. You are the one being racist. The show of course is for ratings and they have to go with them which is only good business. Look around, there are plenty of nationalities represented. In fact look back at some of the shows-you apparently are not a regular.
