“The Bachelor”
premieres in just a few short weeks, starring Ben Flajnik. Check out the sneak peek clip above to see what the season has in store for us.

After re-living Ben’s rejection at the hands of Ashley Hebert, we join Ben in some contemplative walks by various bodies of water, some middle-distance gazing, driving with the wind blowing through his hair and working on his winery (check out our review of his wines here).

Then we get some previews and the adventurous dates look awesome this season. Ben also says of one of the ladies, “When I’m with this woman, I find myself starting to fall in love.” We wonder who he’s talking about?

We also love the tears, drama and cussing. Wouldn’t be “The Bachelor” without some crazypants ladies. “The Bachelor” premieres Monday, Jan. 2 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
