Ben Flajnik is a wine maker from Sonoma, California. He studied at the University of Arizona, where he majored in music production and minored in business. After graduating college, he worked in Internet advertising and turned his passion for making wine into business. Since then, he has created multiple wine brans with two other business partners.
A soccer enthusiast, Ben has won a state championship and has traveled to Germany to watch the 2006 World Cup. He also likes skate boarding, surfing, playing piano and fixing things.
Ben became one of the 25 men competing for Ashley Hebert on The Bachelorette season 7. He reached the finale but unfortunately lost to contestant J.P. Hoping for another shot at love, he's returned to reality TV dating as the star of The Bachelor season 16, where 25 women (and a grandma) will compete for his attention.
