To Be or Not to Be! Ben Flajnik Ponders Taking Season 16 Bachelor Gig

Ben Flajnik could probably get any woman he wants (except Ashley Hebert) with one arch of his Storm Horse brows. He has a cool gig as a winemaker and a nice chill life hanging around with people like Bachelor Season 15 veteran Britt Billmaier, even if she isn’t actually his *girlfriend*. And he’s hot. So why would he need to sign up for the tears, drama, and tabloid scrutiny of The Bachelor Season 16? No Bachelor ever emerges from the show completely unscathed.

Bachelorette Suitor #2 just shared his thoughts on the matter from his shiny new Twitter account:

@BenFlajnik: “Plans to be the next #thebachelor ? I don't know...lots to ponder.”

He probably wouldn’t be tweeting that — plus #thebachelor hash tags —unless he wanted some response from fans, yes or no.

Well, for argument’s sake, who wouldn’t want to fly around the world (again) on someone else’s dime while sucking face with 25 ladies who are all fighting for your attention? Plus, it might lead to even more cool stuff down the road, like the opportunity to have his SNL-style Storm Horse videos reach a wider audience.

Here’s a bonus bit of advice from someone, which Ben retweeted: “scotch comes too! package deal. america needs scotch. RT @BenFlajnik: Plans to be the next #thebachelor ? I don't know...lots to ponder.”

So help him out, Bachelor fans. Should he do this or not? He seems to be getting a lot of Wetpaint love in this Ben as The Bachelor poll, but some people still want Ames Brown or even Ryan Park. What say you?
