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. //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/rpTXxDrDycI/twist-melissa-schreiber-says-ames-brown-is-the-next-bachelor--not-ben-flajnik

Rumor! Emily Maynard Found Love With David Smith and Thinks He’s “The One”?

Son of a billionaire! Our Emily Maynard is not exactly living life in the slow lane. There were rumors back in May that The Bachelor Season 15 winner broke it off with Brad Womack because of David Smith, son of billionaire Speedway Motorsports owner Bruton Smith. Now Hollywood Life is saying they are "officially a couple" — and their town of Charlotte, NC is abuzz about the pair."Emily has been spending quite a bit of time with David," HL's source says.

Well, DWTS Season 13 doesn’t start until Sept. 19 and the "Ben Flajnik is the next Bachelor" news has been out there since Aug. 23. By "out there" we don’t just mean spoiler king Reality Steve.

Ben Flajnik the next 'Bachelor'?

The rumors have begun about the next "Bachelor" and Reality Steve (a pretty reliable source for "Bachelor" franchise secrets and spoilers) says it's none other than winery owner Ben Flajnik, the man who finished second to J.P. Rosenbaum on Ashley Hebert's season of "The Bachelorette."ABC tells Zap2it, "We aren't confirming or announcing anything at the moment. We will make the announcement on the finale of Bachelor Pad, airing Sept. 12."Based on Reality Steve's track record in the past, we would have to say the possibility it's Ben is pretty strong. We think Ben could be a pretty fun Bachelor, though we are a little disappointed if it's not Ryan P. He would've been both sincere/romantic and also hilarious in his sincerity.What do you think, "Bachelor" fans?... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/08/ben-flajnik-the-next-bachelor.html

Who Should Be the Next 'Bachelor'? Pros and Cons of ABC's Top 3 Choices

To our continued disappointment, anxiety and horror, we don't yet know who will be the next Bachelor. And if you believe what the network's mouthpieces say, neither does ABC. But we do know a couple things about the man who would be king of sex mountain based on historical trends and just plain common sense (both of which, funnily enough, one would need to ignore altogether in order to convince oneself that becoming the next Bachelor is a good idea): - He will be a contestant from Ashley Hebert's season of The Bachelorette. - He will have appeared in at least one of the final three episodes of that season. - He will need to possess if not a majority, at least a fair sampling of the following traits: Handsomeness, business and/or financial success, positive attitude, charm, 6-pack abs, the ability to talk about his feelings ad nauseum and ad infinitum, photogenicity, and (this last one is not to be discounted or underestimated!) willingness . Willingness to date lots of women; to broadcast his polyamorous exploits in the public domain; to do and say anything that ABC wants him to do/say about said exploits; and so forth.

New Interview! Ryan Park Is Not Sure He’d Want to Be the Next Bachelor

A dark cloud seems to have fallen on Mr. Sunshine. We’re used to Ryan Park’s chipper attitude from The Bachelorette Season 7, but for most of his exit interview with the media, the 31-year-old solar energy executive sounds less like Tigger and more like Eeyore. Maybe he’s just trying to scale things back for all the irritable Rabbits out there (talkin’ to YOU Blake Julian) so they don’t get annoyed by his optimism. Again.Although Ryan says his edit on the show was... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/9fP36pKU1aI/new-interview-ryan-park-is-not-sure-hed-want-to-be-the-next-bachelor
