ABC to announce next 'The Bachelor' star during 'Bachelor Pad' finale

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/25/2011 

The Bachelor viewers won't have to wait much longer to learn who will be the star of the reality dating show's next season.

ABC has confirmed it will announce The Bachelor's sixteenth-season star during Bachelor Pad's second-season finale broadcast on Monday, September 12.

Yesterday, Us Weekly reported Ben Flajnik -- who was rejected at the end of The Bachelorette's August 2 finale when The Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert selected and presented her final rose to fellow suitor J.P. Rosenbaum instead -- will serve as the next star of The Bachelor.

According to Us, ABC believes the 28-year-old winemaker from Sonoma, CA has the makings of a successful Bachelor because he was a fan favorite during his The Bachelorette edition.

"They think he'll be ratings gold," a source told Us. "His [August 6] date with Jennifer Love Hewitt was icing on the cake!"

In addition to Flajnik, fellow former seventh-season The Bachelorette bachelors Ryan Park and Ames Brown were also under consideration for The Bachelor role, according to previous reports.
