Twist! Melissa Schreiber Says Ames Brown is the Next Bachelor — NOT Ben Flajnik
She's a rebel. Gotta give her that. Bachelor Pad dumpee Melissa Schreiber is no stranger to odd decisions, so good for her for continuing to swim against the stream. Having said that, we think she's wrong here. Melissa, who had a teary departure on BP2 this week, told Ryan Seacrest she doesn't think Bachelorette Season 7 runner-up Ben Flajnik will be the Season 16 Bachelor — despite spoilers leaked on the web.
For the longest time, everybody was completely convinced that Chris L. from Ali Fedotowsky’s season was gonna be the next Bachelor, and it ended up being Brad Womack. It could be Ben F, but I’m not 100% convinced. I think it’s gonna be Ames.
For the record, Reality Steve did get that bit of info about Brad as the Season 15 Bachelor right. But it’s not like having Ames would be such a tragedy — we already have plenty of reasons to love the guy. Guess no one (save for our beloved Rosemaster Chris Harrison) will know for sure until ABC makes the official announcement on Sept. 12 during the BP2 finale.
