If you’ve ever sat at home watching The Bachelor or The Bachelorette and found yourself falling in love with one of the attractive eligible contestants, only to be horrified when he or she was rejected for some lesser douche or bimbo (I love you Shawntel Newton!) then relax, because you are not alone. And it’s not just hopeless romantic (and rather pathetic) celebrity bloggers falling into this trap, it’s also celebrities.
Oft-runner-up Jennifer Love Hewitt found herself falling for Ashley Hebert’s second choice Ben Flajnik and even tweeted about her newfound obsession:
As it turns out, J-Love wasn’t kidding! According to Life & Style she actually did book a flight to Sonoma for a date with the 28-year-old winemaker on August 6!
The two hung out at San Francisco hot spot Lion’s Pub. “Ben from The Bachelorette is making out with Jennifer Love Hewitt,” one eyewitness claimed. Another fan who saw the two even said they may be a couple already, exclaiming, “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.”
J.P. Rosenwho? Man, if Ben Flajnik winds up with Jennifer Love Hewitt after being on The Bachelorette it could change the whole dynamic of the show – it would no longer be about winning, but about coming in second with hopes of hooking up with the likes of Jennifer Aniston or George Clooney! Actually, after a few years, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette could inspire spin-offs featuring well-known celebrities! Could you imagine the number of applications ABC would receive for Jennifer Love Hewitt’s season of Celebrity Bachelorette? I know I’d give it a shot!
Another great thing that could come from Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ben Flajnik dating is that JLH could adapt her fondness for vuh-jazzling and start a whole new trend… Flajazzling! (Sorry Ben)
