After getting rejected on national TV last year, Ben Flajnik is returning to ABC’s “The Bachelor” for a second chance at love.

Premiering tonight (January 2) at 8pm, the winemaker has had a full day of promotional visits to morning shows like “Live! With Kelly” and “Good Morning America.”

During his GMA visit, Ben opened up about being turned down by then “Bachelorette” star Ashley Hebert - who ended up choosing the other contestant, JP.

Of getting passed over, Flajnik told, “I didn’t know she was going to turn down my proposal. Obviously it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to, but I’m glad that I’m here now in this position.”
