Ben Flajnik learned on ‘The Bachelorette‘ that what doesn’t kill you gets you your own reality show. After Ashley Hebert rejected his marriage proposal on national television, ABC decided to make Flajnik the newest ‘Bachelor.’

“I had my heart broken. I did,” he says in the upcoming season’s trailer. “Going through that experience, it really did open me up.” Now, he’s ready to find love, even if that means he has to ski around San Francisco shirtless or go skinny dipping. He’ll do it… Actually, he did do it.

Apparently these theatrics actually work for some of his suitors, who’ll you’ll hear say stuff like, “I’m falling, hard,” over the course of only a few days. We all know they’re really falling in love with his pecs, though.
