It’s about time that we get a truly charming and decent ‘Bachelor’ — and that’s exactly what Ben is! And he deserves a chance to find love, especially after the way Ashley crushed him!
The two past Bachelors — Brad Womack and Jake Pavelka — were total let-downs. But if Reality Steve turns out to be right that Bachelorette Ashley Hebert‘s runner-up Ben Flajnik is the next Bachelor, then ABC has finally made a very, very wise decision. Ben’s going to be one of the most entertaining and lovable Bachelors that we’ve seen yet!
Poor Ben made it to the final two on Ashley’s season only to have his heart broken. He got down on one knee and proposed, thinking that the girl of his dreams loved him back. But when Ashley dumped him, Ben’s whole world came crashing down. Seeing the pain in his eyes and watching him walk away from the final rose completely destroyed was undeniably the saddest moment in Bachelor/Bachelorette history. My heart completely ached for Ben.
Remembering that sad moment, there is no question that Ben deserves this chance to find love. And more than ever, Ben seems ready to be in a relationship. Ashley was just the stepping stone he needed to help open his heart back up after losing his father. She showed him that it’s possibly to love again.
Now Ben’s ready to meet 25 women and take his chances as The Bachelor. Well, his charisma and charm are definitely going to win the women over. And his laid-back mentality and sense of humor are only added bonuses. Everything about Ben makes him perfect for the role.
Ben’s going to walk away from the show engaged to the love of his life — and it’ll be a relationship that will last unlike Brad or Jake’s. Ben doesn’t seem to have that jealous tendency that reportedly drove Emily Maynard away from Brad. He also doesn’t appear to be a fame chaser like Jake, who supposedly cared more about the spotlight than his fiance Vienna Girardi. Ben’s a true catch!
