We’ve all hear by now mama Kris Jenner confirming her separation from hubby Bruce Jenner, and reports circulating are saying the 57-year-old matriarch is very ready to start dating and in fact has been already linked to a much younger man!
His name? Ben Flajnik!
Is his face and name familiar? Well of course, we first heard of him when the currently 31-year-old became the runner-up on Ashley Hebert’s season of The Bachelorette. During the season finale, Ashley rejected his proposal, leaving him heartbroken and devastated. He was then chosen as the next Bachelor like is use to.
Ben is from Sonoma, California where he spent most of his childhood and was born September 10, 1982. He attended University of Arizona, majoring in music production with a minor in business.
During his stardom as The Bachelor season 16, Ben dated many contestants, eventually ending up with model Courtney Robertson but called it quits last fall saying it was too much drama for him. Flajnik opened up while in the show and said it was hard for him to commit to relationships because of the loss of his father.
He splits his time between San Francisco and Sonoma, Calif., where he co-owns Evolve Winery with his best friend Mike Benziger. Ben currently works in different projects, he founded the creative group “Benjamin Elizabeth” which specializes in conceptual marketing, content, brand identity and partnerships.
Here are some other things we know about the wine maker man; his favorite all time book is The Dirt by Motley Crew. It’s crazy, his favorite sports team The San Francisco Giants, he won a state championship in soccer and continue to play lots of intramural sports and the best trip he’s been to is the 2006 World Cup trip to Germany.
Report of the new alleged couple are saying newly single Kris and Ben have been spending lost of time together, and in fact on September 28, Jenner posted a photo to Instagram (above) of herself and Flajnik on the latter’s vineyard in Sonoma, including with it the hashtag #livinglifeee.
