Ben Flajnik’s Bachelor women revealed, including an elderly woman

Some of the women who will date Ben Flajnik on The Bachelor 16 have been identified, and that includes the elderly woman on crutches who appears in an ABC promo.

That the women are being identified isn’t a surprise, since they were filmed in public earlier this fall, leading the production to threaten a newspaper

Doing what he does, Reality Steve has identified 16 of the women so far, and that includes the woman who appears at the very end of the preview below: a senior citizen who tells Ben, “I fell madly in love with you.”

The audio and editing are weird, however, and there’s a good reason: she’s not really a bachelorette. Steve reports that “someone’s grandma actually gets out of the limo first to surprise Ben. The grandma then introduces her granddaughter to Ben.”
