Flajnik -- who according to previous reports, has recently been dating former fifteenth-season The Bachelor bachelorette Britt Billmaier -- is now seeing Hollywood actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, Life & Stylereported Monday.
Hewitt openly admitted she had a crush on Flajnik via her Twitter account after watching The Bachelorette's August 2 finale, which ended with The Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert rejecting the 28-year-old winemaker from Sonoma, CA and presenting her final rose to fellow suitor J.P. Rosenbaum instead.
"OMG! Ben F. except my final rose !!! I love that ring... Happy for Ashley... Gotta book a flight to Sonoma !!!:):)" Hewitt wrote.
Hewitt then asked her followers -- which she calls "lovelys" -- to help get Flajnik to follow her on Twitter, a request he quickly fulfilled.
"Aaaaaaahhhhhhh Ben F. is following me!!!!! You lovelys are the best!!!!:):) Sending a million roses to [you] guys too," Hewitt subsequently tweeted.
According to Life & Style, Hewitt and Flajnik got together for a date at the Lion's Pub in San Francisco on Saturday after the actress flew to the area to see the jilted bachelor.
"Ben from The Bachelorette is making out with Jennifer Love Hewitt," a witness said.
"Oh yeah, Ben and Jennifer Love Hewitt appeared to be dating. All in all, Ben seemed to be perfectly content as the second-place loser on The Bachelorette," another source added.
Hewitt's representative declined comment, according to Life & Style. However, based on Hewitt's subsequent tweet, her weekend visit with Flajnik appears to have gone very well.
"I got lost in the most amazing Sat! Just when you think [you] can't be surprised... You are and it's awesome!" she wrote on Sunday.
