They may not have won Ashley Hebert's heart, but "Bachelorette" suitors Ben Flajnik, Constantine Tzortzis, and Ryan "Mickey" McLean did get something out of the show: lasting friendships.
The season 7 contestants -- who are all still single -- reunited at Tzortzis' restaurant Giorgio's in Cumming, Georgia to celebrate its 20th anniversary and, of course, dish about the show. TooFab has the exclusive details.
TooFab: How do you feel about Ashley after the show? Do you have anycontact with her?
Constantine: We all respect Ashley. She was put in a very difficult decision and inthe end everything worked out for the best. As of now we aren't incontact with her and JP [her fiance], as they are probably overwhelmed withattention. We do wish them the best and hope they have a wonderful lifetogether.
TooFab: How did "The Bachelorette" change you? Was it negative or positive?
Constantine: The experience was extremely positive for all of us. I feel we each havegrown as individuals, which is a direct result of doingsomething that might be a little out of your normal comfort zone. In theend we were given a gift of an opportunity and we all are extremelyfortunate for that.
TooFab: Would you do "The Bachelorette" again?
Constantine: We all would, it was a positive experience for everyone. But it's like college. You want to go back and remake the memories but it can never beas good as the first time around.
TooFab: What are your future plans?
Ben: Prepping for the next harvest at my winery [Evolve Wines]. We have our Pinot and Chardonnay releasing next month so I'm pretty busy. But that's a great problem to have.
Constantine: I will continue to work at growing my restaurant as we are really busy also. The show has opened up many new avenues for me, so taking advantage of any opportunity the comes my way.
Mickey: I'll continue to bartender over the summer as it leaves me open totraveling. In the fall I'll move back into the kitchen, as I've beenoffered positions at many restaurants in Cleveland. So I'm keeping myoptions open.
TooFab: What kind of activities do you guys do together?
Constantine: [We] just hang really. Typical stuff you do with your friends. Gym, pool, grill out..
TooFab: Do you guys go on double dates or go meet women together?
Constantine: When we are all hanging out, we seem to meet women pretty easily but that's just because Mickey is ridiculous good looking. Ben and I will take what we can get, ha [Ben's rumored to have caught the eye of Jennifer Love Hewitt].
