Ben Flajnik Confirmed as ABC's Next Bachelor: Is He the Right Man for the Job?

Expect to see plenty of single ladies pounding grape when The Bachelor returns to ABC’s primetime lineup in January 2012. The network confirms that winemaker Ben Flajnik, whose marriage proposal was brutally rebuked by that chick whose name you already forgot Ashley Hebert on the season finale of The Bachelorette last month, will look for love once again on Season 16 of its flagship dating franchise.

According to ABC’s release, “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.”

So there’s that.
