Ben Flajnik will be The Bachelor 16’s star, ABC confirms
Today, ABC confirmed reports from last month that The Bachelorette reject Ben Flajnik has been cast as the star of The Bachelor 16.
The network said that we “shared the heartbreak” he felt “when his soulful and heartfelt proposal was rejected by Ashley Hebert.” That sentence is more interesting than her whole season, but I digress.
The press release calls him “a rare, modern Renaissance man” because he likes to go crab fishing and plays piano, among other things, and says that he “is ready to put all the disappointment and hurt behind him in order to move on with his life” and that his “easy going charm and sense of humor made him so popular and relatable to viewers.”
The new season debuts next January.
