Today is Monday, March 12, and we are mere hours away from Ben Flajnik’s second televised on-bended-knee moment where he will propose to one of his Bachelor 16 final two, Courtney Robertson or Lindzi Cox.

In honor of this day...  let’s celebrate by honoring the unsung hero of this season.

Scotch! The little tyke is arguably The Bachelor franchise’s cutest star to date, tagging along on at least one of Ben's dates during the season and thus stealing the spotlight — on and off the show. He is no doubt going through a tough time right now, what with being a product of a potentially broken home.

Side: Is that same lei Ben wore while making out with the girls in Episode 3? Sanitize! Sanitize!
