Ben Flajnik makes his debut as The Bachelor January 2, and if this three-minute preview is any indication, we may be in for the wildest season in Bachelor history.

Okay, yes, Chris Harrison says that every season. But we're serious here!

Ben, who was famously rejected by Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert, certainly looks like he has his hands full with these 25 fame-seeking aspiring trophy wives ...

Wow. Just a couple of observations / questions we have after that ...

  • “When I’m with this woman, I find myself starting to fall in love.” - Ben Flajnik. Nice to see he's reading the same recycled scripts as every Bachelor.
  • Do the story editors trying to spice up the show in its 16th season by adding a ton of profanity, or are the girls just badasses who are ad-libbing?
  • Between the California winemaker digging up dirt, driving a tractor, and lugging lumber, this has to be the best Bachelor pre-roll footage ever.
  • That clip of Ben quasi-telling off Ashley is the best.
  • Was that a gratuitous half-naked a$$ shot?

January 2 can't get here fast enough!

The Bachelor star Ben Flajnik was seen filming the upcoming season of the hit ABC show this weekend. He and his bikini-clad babes were skiing. In California.

Shooting is currently underway for the 16th season and Ben was spotted in his home city (shirtless, obviously) skiing down one of SF's famous hills.

Here's a look at the hunk gripping his poles ...

Ben Flajnik Shirtless

The people at ABC managed to turn a San Fran street into a ski slope, filled with snow and ski bunnies, as seen in photos posted by Reality Steve.

Since it's not actually winter, there were no North Face parkas to be found. Ben Flajnik went shirtless and his suitors made for quality bikini photos.

Ben, as fans know, was passed over by Ashley Hebert on The Bachelorette finale, but was then tapped for The Bachelor, airing in January 2012.

We obviously wouldn't miss it.

This evening on The Bachelor, Brad Womack takes his final three potential wives - Ashley Hebert, Chantal O'Brien and Emily Maynard - to South Africa.

There can be only one Final Rose doled out March 14, though, which means two emotional decisions await Brad before then. Two beauties must be cut.

We now know for sure who wins that final rose - and if you've been reading The Bachelor spoilers up until now, it's actually NOT who you think.

  • Ashley Hebert Picture
  • Chantal O'Brien Photo
  • Emily Maynard Picture

Will Brad pick Ashley (left), Chantal (center) or Emily (right)?

Last week, we reported that one of the women above would be the next Bachelorette. This still appears to be the case. But the winner of this season?

Intelligence now suggests a different conclusion to the finale than we believed to be accurate as recently as this weekend. So who's it gonna be?

Follow the jump for all The Bachelor spoilers ...

She's still alive as one of three finalists on this season of The Bachelor. But has Ashley Hebert already been tapped to star on The Bachelorette this summer?

According to Reality Steve's Twitter.

For those unfamiliar with Steve, he is the WikiLeaks of Bachelor spoilers. No one knows how this stuff gets out, but it ends up on his blog and he is good.

Ashley Hebert Picture

How on Earth was a contestant who isn't even eliminated yet named the star of the sequel? We have no idea, and we obviously can't confirm this now.

But odds are still pretty high that Ashley Hebert, the perky dental student and pride of small town Madawaska, Maine, will be the next Bachelorette.

If true, it's not shocking she didn't win The Bachelor. Brad has stronger connections with Chantal O'Brien (the rumored winner) and Emily Maynard.

What is surprising is that Emily, with stunning looks and a touching story that seemed destined to land her the starring role, is not The Bachelorette.

Just the same, Ash is no slouch herself. She's down-to-earth, smart, fun and cute as they come. What do you think of the move? Vote below ...

Would Ashley make a good Bachelorette?

Perhaps the most interesting part of The Bachelor Monday, as we noted in our official recap, was the final three minutes ... a preview for future episodes.

Basically, for reasons unknown, some of The Bachelor spoilers we've been reporting for weeks now were confirmed in this teaser for the rest of the season.

Does heartbreak await Brad Womack in Anguilla, on his hometown dates, and finally in South Africa? Skip ahead to the 6:30 mark and watch it unfold ...

The most telling clip? Chantal O'Brien telling Brad she didn't feel special as "one of three," and that he might as well send her home right then and there.

Brad Womack rejected Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas on the Bachelor a few seasons ago. This time around, we have a hunch he ends up engaged at the end.

Engaged to ... well, read The Bachelor spoilers here if you're curious.

In any case, Jenni and DeAnna will return to confront Brad when his second stint as the show's leading man commences January 3. Can you say awkward?

  • Jenni Croft, Brad Womack
  • DeAnna Pappas, Brad Womack

So ... what have you girls been up to?

A previously released promo already revealed that Womack will be greeted with a slap by one of the aspiring women this season, an event that sets the tone.

Producers say many of the women will "question his intentions" and grill Brad Womack with "tough questions" despite his "radical personal transformation."

We imagine Jenni and DeAnna have a couple of things to read off the cue cards say to the man who broke their hearts. We can see some thrown drinks, too.

Brad Womack is back for a second stint as The Bachelor, and as luck would have it, ABC has already given us three full minutes of hilarious nonsense to watch.

If this looks like the kind of montage ABC will typically play at the end of the season premiere, a la "this season on The Bachelor," that's because it sort of is.

They're really trying to get out ahead of The Bachelor spoilers this time. Good luck with that, ABC, but thanks for whetting our appetites for the Jan. 3 opener:

We've already seen him get bitch-slapped, but it was worth a second look, and the rest was great. Some thoughts on The Bachelor sneak preview above ...

  • We know the video quality sucks. Bear with us until we find a better copy.
  • Was that lightning and rain? God hates Brad more than Steve Johnson.
  • Brad Womack has a staggering number of awesome plaid shirts.
  • Expect to hear "Is he scared of commitment?!" about 465 times.
  • That and every insult in the book. These writers women show no mercy.
  • Brad has done A LOT of soul searching. So much so, he says it twice.
