The Bachelor Season Premiere MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 2012 ON ABC!
Here's a sneak peek from The Bachelor Season 16, Episode 1 with Ben Flajnik.
Ben Flajnik meets his 25 Women: Ben meets an attractive young law student who informs the Bachelor that he's been found guilty - of being sexy! A germ-conscious epidemiologist sanitizes both herself and Ben, and then promptly steals the season's first kiss. But nothing can prepare Ben for the moment the limo door opens and a senior citizen steps out! Who is this grandmother who wants to date Ben? It turns out that the granny actually wants to introduce Ben to her granddaughter. Ben is relieved.
Meet some of the Women on this season of The Bachelor!
The Cocktail Party: Once inside the mansion, the competition for Ben's attention heats up. An easy-going woman and a sweet divorcee both make an early play for the Bachelor, while the sexy equestrian proves she is equally as charming without the horse. But Ben's older admirer advises him that he needs a family-oriented woman. The pressure mounts when Chris brings out the "first impression" rose, as one woman after another attempts to win Ben's heart and the rose. One athletic woman corners Ben for a quick soccer game; a sassy personal trainer demands he do pushups; a gorgeous model seduces him and a charming scholar demonstrates her "gangsta" side by performing a rap she wrote just for him. But drama erupts when the pressure proves to be too much for one sensitive young woman.
