Although his love wasn’t good enough for “Bachelorette” Ashley Hebert, 28-year-old winemaker Ben Flajnik might’ve found a new Love—in Jennifer Love Hewitt, that is!

So how did this unforeseen pairing meet? According to Life & Style, thank the matchmaking ways of the Twitterverse. “OMG! Ben F [accept] my final rose!!!” the actress tweeted on Aug. 2, a day after Ashley rejected Ben for J.P. Rosebaum. “Gotta book a flight to Sonoma!!!”

And that she did. The couple met up on Aug. 6 at a chic bar in San Francisco and apparently wasted no time in canoodling. “Ben from ‘The Bachelorette’ is making out with Jennifer Love Hewitt,” stated one source. Another adds, “Oh yeah, Ben and Jennifer Love Hewitt appeared to be dating. All in all, Ben seemed to be perfectly content as the second-place loser on ‘The Bachelorette.’ ”

Not surprisingly, “Bachelor” franchise obsessive Reality Steve chimed in on the rumors, too.

“These two had no contact with each other until after Jennifer reached out through Twitter on Aug. 2.,” he told the mag. “Ben’s obviously doing fine since the Ashley breakup!”

A rep for the A-list actress refused to comment.
