8:16 am
so maybe with the way the winners are written on the card maybe that's why. because you kind of have to read the second runner upskip the first runner up, go to the winner. because that's the way it's supposed to be announced on tv. maybe the way it was written was a little bit confusing. i understand. it was his first time to judge a pageant. it's okay. he's human. people make mistakes. it's live television. it's not easy. i understand. it's fine. >> do you think he did a good job overall? do you think he s should b back as the host of "miss universe" next year? >> yeah, why not? he's a breath of fresh air. he made us feel very relaxed, the contestants. it makes us show our personality a littlele bit mor i think that benefits everybody, especially the viewers. >> very gracious. >> very gracious. jinx, buy me a coke. also in "pop news" a new study suggesting being generous

moving. you still have to say good-bye. >> definitely. >> as the process goes on. what was that like? >> it was a lot harder than i thought. i saw the end result. you forget that there's a lot of heartbreak and pain to get there. there's a lot of emotion through the experience. >> without giving away any secrets, was there a moment where something happened that you were like, gosh, i wish this wouldn't be on camera? i wish i could not have this happen? >> when i signed up for it, i knew my life wou be on display. i think the women that came on knew that their lives would be on display. you kind of roll with it. people are going to laugh and maybe cry with me. i'll be embarrassed at times. >> maybe a kiss, a couple? >> you'll probably see me kissing sometimes. >> look at you getting shy. did you get advice from other "bachelors "? >> some of the best we have had. who are the best?
8:24 am
jason mesnick. they came on to give me a lilittle bit of advice. >> what was the advice? >> be true to myself. don't worry about what people are going to think. just be true to yourself and the experience. because ultimately, this is about mylf and the women. and if this is going to work, we have to be who we really are. >> how old are you again? >> 26. >> 26. are you old enough to get married? >> uh, yeah, definitely. there wasn't a doubt in my mind. >> i'm here for you, america. trying to do the job. i understand you're going to donate a coat. >> yes. >> would you mind doing that >> no, i would love to. >> thank you so much, ben, you're a delight. we can't wait to see how it works out. i'm sure well, no matter what. ben brought his college friends with him. so my guess is they're having a great time here in new york. >> definitely. >> t season premiere of "the bachelor" starts tonight at 8:00. an extended sneak peek is yours at our website. goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo!. but right now, we're going
