It’s official! Ben Flajnik, known for proposing to Ashley Hebert and then getting rejected on The Bachelorette, is getting another shot of finding love on the reality show. The 28 year-old winemaker will star in the upcoming season of The Bachelor.
As noted by The Huffington Post, ABC confirmed he will indeed be the star of the show that kicks off its next season in January, however the official statement will be made on the September 12 episode of The Bachelor Pad.
At a recent press conference, Ashley and her soon-to-be hubby J.P. Rosenbaum indicated their support for Ben as the next leading man on the show. Last month she gave props to him as the next bachelor because “girls have loved him.”
