Ben Flajnik is more than ready for his second chance at love.
He may have been dumped after proposing to Ashley Hebert last season on The Bachelorette, but come January 2, the 29-year-old Sonoma, Calif., winemaker is in the driver's seat on The Bachelor, ready to mix and mingle with 25 new bachelorettes.
"I had my heart broken, but going through that experience really did open me up. It had been a long time since I've tapped into those love feelings. To feel them again blew my mind," ABC's new bachelor says in a sneak season preview trailer. "I'm still lacking that person, that someone I was searching for in the last go, but in the months that followed, I had some time to reflect. I'm ready to find that person. I'm ready to find love."
Watch the video above for more of what to expect during Flajnik's search for love, including first glimpses at his romantic — and dangerous — one-on-one and group dates. Also in the clip above, Flajnik's lucky ladies are at each other's throats from the get-go in an attempt to fight for his love.
"Why doesn't she hate me out of nowhere?" whines one bachelorette after she tries to make friends with her costars. Answers another: "Because that's what girls do!"
Flajnik's season of The Bachelor premieres Monday, January 2 at 8 p.m. (EST) on ABC.
