New 'Bachelor' Ben Shows He Knows Nothing About Women

The word on the street is there is a big twist already in Ben Flajnik's Bachelor season, and it's bringing back a previous female contestant from a past Bachelor season. Apparently she really fell for Ben during Ashley's season of The Bachelorette and wanted a chance on his season.

But who might it be? *Spoilers below*


According to Reality Steve, the go-to reference for all Bachelor spoilers, Shawntel Newton, the funeral director and embalmer from Brad Womack’s Bachelor season, tried to get with Ben, but he was just not that into her.

To me, it seems like a match made in heaven. Wine and death go so well together, after all.

In all seriousness, he would have been lucky to have her. She was one of the few bachelorettes (ever!) who seemed to really have her head on straight. And while yes, she has a macabre job, at least she has a passion and a career and is driven enough to pursue it.

The more and more I hear about Flajnik's season, the less I think it will work for him. He was much more humble during his season of The Bachelorette than he appears to be now.

The word on the street is that he keeps a Hooters girl around over Shawntel. Boo to Ben. A man with taste that bad doesn't deserve happiness anyway. 

Do you think Shawntel would have been good for Ben?
