If Season 16's Bachelor and wine connoisseur Ben Flajnik (age 31) and the ultimate 'momager' Kris Jenner (age 58), are actually dating, we're preparing for an extraordinary reality TV mashup at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's upcoming wedding.
If, like us, you are a Bachelor enthusiast, you understand the romance, anticipation, frustration, dramatic exits and shocking discoveries that are unleashed in the final rose ceremony. As fans, we watch The Bachelor in earnest hoping for a happily-ever-after, only to face the inevitable disappointment of seeing the very public breakup broadcasted through the gossip-sphere a few short weeks later. So the interesting dilemma of a beloved Bachelor finding love with a Hollywood socialite after the tear-inducing breakup is especially enticing.

How enticing? Flajnik and Jenner have been spotted getting cozy on more than one occasion leading to speculation that the unlikely pair are involved in a May-December romance!
"I'm blown away by the amount of hospitality and kindness she's given me," Flajnik recently revealed to People. "She's introduced me to everyone to make me feel comfortable if we end up working together. Her family is amazing and wonderful."

The star's rumored cougar-esque relationship started in July when Flajnik made an appearance on Jenner's talk show. The two got close while working on a reported collaboration through Flajnik's wine company. More recently, photos of the pair were snapped as they exited a Beyoncé concert and enjoyed a bite at Nobu later the same night. But Flajnik adamantly denies the alleged romance on his Twitter feed and claims that Jenner is nothing more than a "dear friend," while the future mother-of-the-bride to Kim Kardashian is mocking the media's fascination with thei non-relationship by uploading pictures of the two of them to Instagram during "date night."
It seems that though she's in the process of divorcing Bruce Jenner, her hubby of 22 years, Kris is at least having fun pretending to pursue a hot, young rebound (though we can't blame her for her choice). If nothing else, he'd make a fun wedding date who would absolutely pick the best glass of wine for each dinner course. We just hope that she doesn't expect a long-stemmed red rose at the end of the night—after all, it doesn't last as long as a Neil Lane engagement ring.
