Ben Flajnik Surprised by 'Fierce Competition' on 'The Bachelor'

Ben Flajnik, the latest available hunk on ABC's "The Bachelor," is on the new cover of People, and says he was caught off-guard by the "fierce level of competition" between the ladies on the show.


Ben explained, "Obviously, with a situation like this, the claws are going to come out. And they came out a lot earlier than I would've expected."

Host Chris Harrison told the magazine, "It's going to be a very nude season," and added, "Ben is very comfortable in his own skin. He doesn't have modesty issues."

"The Bachelor" airs Mondays on ABC.
