10 Ways To Win Over New “Bachelor,” Ben Flajnik

And it’s official—ABC has confirmed that Ben Flajnik is in fact the new “Bachelor.” I’m just not sure how to feel about this news. Ben is cute and sweet, and the fact that he is a winemaker makes him quite a bit sexier. But he’s also a thinker—a thinker who sounds like a robot with feelings when he talks—and I’m just not sure that it will be that fun to watch for an entire season. Plus, ABC seems intent on making him sound as nerdy as possible in this bio: “A rare, modern Renaissance man, Ben dabbles in a lot of hobbies and crafts, such as crab fishing, sailing, golf, skateboarding, surfing, playing piano and singing in a tribute band. He is also quite handy with a hammer and saw, and loves fixing and building things, as well as landscaping. The woman who will share his life will also have to share one of his other great loves: his Jack Russell Terrier, Scotch.” He loves landscaping?!?! Woo hoo! [AOL TV]

Luckily, we watched as Ben courted “Bachelorette” Ashley Hebert, so we have the inside track of what the lucky ladies who end up on his season should do to win points with him. After the jump, 10 things to do if you want to win Ben’s love.

  1. Tell him which toe of his you love the most, just like Ashley did.
  2. Offer to straighten his hair every morning. It just doesn’t look so cute when it gets curly in the humidity.
  3. Know a little something about wine.
  4. Don’t be Jennifer Love Hewitt. Apparently, things didn’t work out after the two were caught smooching.
  5. Talk to him lots about his dad, who he obviously was very close to and misses a lot.
  6. Know that the ‘j’ in his last name is silent.
  7. Talk to him in a silly dog voice, a la Ashley.
  8. Appeal to his posh mother and sister.
  9. Let him paint for you.
  10. Mop up his sweat! His face produces quite a lot of it.

Do you like Ben as the new “Bachelor”?
