Ben Flajnik the front-runner to be the next Bachelor

Would Ben put himself on through that again?

Bachelorette Ashley Hebert let Ben Flajnik propose marriage to her before she shot him down leaving Ben angry and confused like most of America was.

Although it seems unlikely that Ben would accept the gig as the next Bachelor on ABC’s hit reality show after what happened, it looks like he’s America’s top choice to fill the spot.

An insider talked about Ben being the next Bachelor and said; “Everyone wants [Ben] to find the woman of his dreams, he loved Ashley.”

Bachelor host Chris Harrison has even weight in on the idea of Ben becoming the next bachelor, saying; “Our fans would love to see him as the Bachelor. He’d be great.” 

Even Ashley herself thinks Ben is the guy to cast.  She said; “Ben would be really good — but so would Ryan and Ames.  We’d watch any of those guys!”

Ben went out on a date with television star, Jennifer Love Hewitt last weekend and an insider said; “It seemed like a first date, but he wasn’t overly affectionate.”  So the chances are good that Ben will decline the offer if it’s made to him.

Luckily ABC is also looking at Ames Brown and the incredibly sunny personality of Ryan Park as possibilities for the next Bachelor.
