Ben Flajnik, who first appeared as a contestant on ABC's The Bachelorette, during Ashley Hebert's season, will star as ABC's Bachelor in January 2012.

The California winemaker who introduced himself to Ashley with a bottle of his own wine charmed viewers as a "Renaissance man" who appreciates art, literature and love. As ABC reveals in his bio, Ben actually majored in music production with a business minor at the University of Arizona. He worked for a stint in Internet advertising before moving to California to be near his family after the passing of his father.

Some of Ben's varied hobbies include sailing, surfing, golf, crab fishing, skate boarding, playing piano and singing in a tribute band. In his spare time, Ben also loves to dabble in carpentry and landscaping.

Ben quickly fell for Ashley, but was heartbroken when he got down on one knee to propose, and she revealed that she'd fallen for another man. Will Bachelor Ben find a woman whose lifestyle complements his varied interests? Find out when The Bachelor premiers on January, 2, 2012 on ABC (8pm EST).
