Stop wondering, it’s official — Ben Flajnik is the next Bachelor! Read on to find out what the lucky new ABC contestant tweeted in celebration of the news…
ABC formally revealed the selection on their website in regards to Flajnik’s participation in the 16th season and he tweeted the news himself.
The hottie with perfect hair tweeted on Tuesday, “Secret is out. Looking forward to my new journey as the new Bachelor!”
On their website, ABC is selling Ben Flajnik as, “A rare, modern Renaissance man, Ben dabbles in a lot of hobbies and crafts, such as crab fishing, sailing, golf, skate boarding, surfing, playing piano and singing in a tribute band. He is also quite handy with a hammer and saw, and loves fixing and building things, as well as landscaping. The woman who will share his life will also have to share one of his other great loves: his Jack Russell Terrier, Scotch.”
Ben is going to be a part of the season finale of Bachelor Pad 2, to formally share in the big reveal on September 12.
To get fans guessing, ABC put a giant arrow asking them to click in order to find out who the new Bachelor would be.
We have to admit, when we saw the tease on the website today, we thought it would be a joke telling us to tune into Bachelor Pad 2, but we were wrong.
After coming so close to finding love with Ashley, do you think it’s in the cards for him this time around?
