Fans of The Bachelor are anxiously awaiting next week's episode after a preview shows an ex-girlfriend of Ben Flajnik's coming on the show to win back his heart. But in reality, that woman is not an ex-girlfriend of Ben's at all — she's an ex of former Bachelor Brad Womack!
Shawntel Newton, whose heart was broken when Brad let her go after she made it all the way to the hometown dates on his season, is the mystery woman who plans to join the other contestants in the fight for Ben's love.
"It's Shawntel, and I'm here to date Ben," Shawtel announces to the girls in a new sneak peek of the Jan. 16 episode. "You don't know Ben!" one of the girls screams.This is sure to be "the most dramatic rose ceremony yet!" (In the words of host, Chris Harrison).
Although we were hoping the mystery lady turned out to be Ben's celebrity crush, Jennifer Love Hewitt, we'll take Shawntel. Even if she does run a funeral home.
What do you think of Shawntel? Should she get a chance at winning over Ben's affections?
