Jennifer Love Hewitt dating Bachelorette contestant

(BANG) -

Jennifer Love Hewitt has fallen for a rejected contestant from 'The Bachelorette'.

The 'Ghost Whisperer' actress - who split from Alex Bah in May, after less than a year of dating - reportedly fell for Ben Flajnik when he took part in the competitive reality dating game show earlier this year and the couple were spotted "making out" in San Francisco, California, on Saturday (06.08.11).

An eyewitness at the Lion's Pub said: "Ben from 'The Bachelorette' is making out with Jennifer Love Hewitt."

Another source added: "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'."

After spotting Ben on the show, Jennifer, 32, tweeted her appreciation for the winemaker from Sonoma, California, who finished as runner-up when he was rejected by bachelorette Ashley Hebert after she chose J.P. Rosenbaum as her fiance.

Jennifer wrote on twitter: "Omg! Ben f except my final rose !!! I love that ring. Neil lane u rock!! Happy for Ashley ... Gotta book a flight to Sonoma !!!:):)

"Aaaaaaahhhhhhh Ben f is following me!!!!! You lovelys are the best!!!!:):) sending a million roses to u guys too (sic)"

Jennifer has recently revealed she was finding single life tough, tweeting "Being single is so complicated, so much freedom to find love, and so much free time to meet douches!:) twugs to my single lovelys (sic)"
