CANYONS RESORT, PARK CITY, Utah - As Bachelor Ben Flajnik searches for the woman of his dreams on ABC's The Bachelor, viewers might fall in love with Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah - a destination featured MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2012 (8:00 - 10:01 p.m. ET), on ABC Television's top-rated reality show. This season, fan-favorite Ben, the down-to-earth and romantic guy whose heartfelt proposal was rejected by Ashley Hebert on The Bachelorette, gets another shot at love. Skeptical at first, Ben, a 29-year-old successful winemaker from Sonoma, Calif., now knows firsthand that love can happen - and he's hoping to find it as the Bachelor.
