Confirming a rumor we reported this summer, Bachelor star Ben Flajnik admits he did in fact go on a date with Jennifer Love Hewitt, and that she initiated it.

In the end, though, Ben felt SHE was not HIS type!

The reality star, who was left heartbroken by Ashley Hebert on The Bachelorette finale this summer, and who will be calling the shots starting January 2 (see The Bachelor spoilers for the scoop on the season), described the date as such:

Although the actress was “a nice girl,” she didn’t meet his needs.

“It was right in the middle of the time when I was deciding to be The Bachelor,” Ben Flajnik said of the date, which consisted of dinner at his family’s winery.

“When this is all said and done, I’m a regular guy, and ending up with a Hollywood celebrity is not something that I want or envision myself doing.”

Ouch, JLH. Fortunately, this regular guy has no problem exposing himself to expanding his horizons in other ways, such as getting naked on TV.

“I have no problem with male nudity,” he says of the clip of his backside seen in the trailer for the upcoming season that has left fans buzzing.

“When a beautiful woman asks you to go skinny-dipping on the beach, you don’t say no. Granted there are cameras around, but it’s a bare butt.”

“It’s not that big of a deal to me.”

We imagine female viewers are okay with it, as well.
