Now that Ben Flajnik's journey as The Bachelor is over, he must be getting a little bit nervous about falling completely off the radar. And while he's probably relieved that the hype surrounding his controversial engagement to Courtney Robertson has died down, it's highly unlikely that he's ready to take himself out of the spotlight for good. The whole fame thing can be kind of addicting, you know.
Lucky for Ben, it looks like he made the guest list for a super exciting reality-TV-star-studded event -- Ashley Hebert & J.P. Rosenbaum's wedding. And if he knows what's good for him as far as keeping his 15 minutes of fame going, he'll RSVP a big fat "yes" for sure. (Duh. Declining the invite will make him look like a heartbroken loser -- which he so isn't.)
And assuming Ben does decide to attend the wedding, the only plausible reason why he would accept the invite anyway is for extra publicity. Why else would he celebrate Ashley's marriage to J.P. after he got down on one knee and proposed -- only to have her refuse him, and then send him out to sea in a dinghy? Not many dudes would be too keen on watching their ex-almost-fiance tie the knot with someone else. (That's even a bit much for Jennifer Aniston to handle.)
Rubbing elbows and sharing small-talk and cocktails with Chris Harrison and a whole gander of reality TV fame whores is a great way for Ben to keep himself current -- and to make sure that nobody forgets about him -- or his hair, for that matter. (I wonder if he'll think about cutting it before the big day?) And he'll cause an even bigger buzz when he shows up if he brings Courtney along as his date -- and manages to catch the garter at the reception. (Wouldn't that be a hoot?)

In fact, there's a fairly good chance that Ben and Courtney may be able to take over the entire shin-dig and make it all about them. Who wouldn't love to see those two cutting a rug and making out like teenagers on the dance floor? They were made for the spotlight, and going to this wedding together will totally prove it.
