The 'Bachelorette' runner-up will appear as the new 'Bachelor' during the season finale of ABC's 'Bachelor Pad' on Mon., Sept. 12.
'The Bachelor' returns to ABC in January 2012.
According to ABC, the 28-year-old has been in love three times -- 'Bachelorette' Ashley Hebert was his third -- but has only proposed once ... on TV.
Here's how ABC describes Ben and his desire to find a wife:
"A rare, modern Renaissance man, Ben dabbles in a lot of hobbies and crafts, such as crab fishing, sailing, golf, skate boarding, surfing, playing piano and singing in a tribute band. He is also quite handy with a hammer and saw, and loves fixing and building things, as well as landscaping. The woman who will share his life will also have to share one of his other great loves: his Jack Russell Terrier, Scotch."
