 No you won't be shocked! It's Ben.

  Of course it's Ben.

  Who else? Fred? Sal? Lou?

  Ben Flajnik, turned down by Ashley Hebert, will get his chance again, starting in January.

  Read ABC's not-even-remotely-overheated news release about this appointment. It's shocking as the sun's appearance over yon horizon this morning.

   Millions of viewers shared the heartbreak of Ben Flajnik when his soulful and heartfelt proposal was rejected by Ashley Hebert in the emotional finale of last season’s “The Bachelorette.”

Now Ben is ready to put all the disappointment and hurt behind him in order to move on with his life, his phenomenal success as a businessman and his search for the right woman to be his wife and to start a family with, as he stars in the next edition of ABC’s hit romance reality series, “The Bachelor,” when it returns to ABC in January 2012.

The 28-year-old bachelor has fallen in love three times (Ashley being the third), but has only proposed the one time; that one failed proposal won’t stop him from trying again. He is confident that, having found love on “The Bachelorette,” he will find his soul mate and a lasting, love-filled relationship this time on “The Bachelor.”
