The first preview video for "The Bachelor" season 16 has been released, promising surprises from the very first night. When welcoming the ladies, Ben Flajnik is left speechless by an eldery woman who approaches him with crutches and says that she is madly in love with him. Another woman, meanwhile, amuses him as she arrives on a horse.
The promo also reminds viewers of the moment Ben got rejected by Ashley Hebert in "The Bachelorette" season 7 finale, before offering glimpses of him having fun with some ladies at the upcoming "Bachelor". He is featured kissing a blonde girl in a canoe in one scene, and making out with a brunette in a hot tub in another.
The new installment of "The Bachelor" will premiere Monday, January 2, 2012 at 8 P.M. ET on ABC. The show's host Chris Harrison previously gushed that the excitement ran high among the women, saying, "We were able to tell the girls, you know, who our bachelor was. So, they're fired up. And if they're excited, then it's going to be a good season."
