Bachelorette runner-up Ben Flajnik, who’s heart was shattered by Ashley Hebert, will be the next Bachelor.
Ben was heartbroken when Ashley chose Bachelorette contestant JP Rosenbaum over him during The Bachelorette finale.
ABC has not yet made the official announcement, but US Magazine says an inside source has confirmed that the 28-year-old Sonoma winemaker will get a second chance at love as The Bachelor.
An insider tells Us that Flajnik’s popularity with fans (did you see how crazy the ladies went on the reunion show?!) made him the top pick.
“They think he’ll be ratings gold,” says the insider.. “His [August 6] date with Jennifer Love Hewitt was icing on the cake!”
