After weeks of speculation on who will be the next Bachelor, ABC has supposedly chosen Ben Flajnik as their man.
Ben was in the running for the spot along with Ryan Park and Ames Brown, but reports have said that Ben has already begun filming scenes for the new season.
There are a few things that don’t feel right about this choice, first is that Ben was so heartbroken over his failed proposal with Ashley that it seems unrealistic that he would be ready to find love again so soon. Also even though Ben has denied that he’s dating anyone (probably so that he could become the next Bachelor), but he was out on a date with actress Jennifer Love Hewitt and was reportedly linked to a contestant from Brad Womack’s season of the ‘Bachelor’.
Ames Brown’s break up with Jackie Gordon from the Bachelor pad has come up at a strange time as well. Ames fell on his own sword and went chasing after Jackie’s limo when she was sent packing from the show and since then she has no idea why he’s broken up with her, but the break up coincided at the same time as the final 3 casting choices for this season of ‘The Bachelor’ were beginning to heat up.
The only person that remained true to himself and who would’ve been the best choice is Ryan Park. He remains single, positive and honestly looking for love and not fame, but Ben was seen in San Francisco on August 22 filming solo scenes for the reality show.
They say that Ben will begin filming his season of the Bachelor in September and that his season will air in January of 2012 on ABC.
