Flajnik -- a 28-year-old winemaker from Sonoma, CA, who proposed to Hebert at the final Rose Ceremony during the seventh-season finale of The Bachelorette but was turned down and returned home alone after discovering Hebert had fallen in love with J.P. Rosenbaum instead -- is "casually dating" former fifteenth-season The Bachelor bachelorette Britt Billmaier, Life & Stylereported Tuesday.
"They both live in the same town, so that's how they met," a source told Life & Style. "They're having fun together. He's definitely not wallowing over the break-up with Ashley."
Rumors that the pair were dating had first surfaced last month, causing Billmaier to post a denial tweet on her Twitter account.
"Lots of lies floating about. I think Ben is a fantastic guy, but there is no validity to the rumors out there," the 26-year-old Woodinville, WA native and food writer, who just celebrated her birthday yesterday, wrote on July 22.
However, according to the source, Billmaier's denial may be because The Bachelor producers are considering Flajnik as the show's next star.
