The Next Bachelor: Farmer Chris Soules

Bachelor Chris Soules

Will the farmer take a wife? (Did anyone beat me to that lede…?)

Recent Bachelorette finalist Chris Soules has been anointed ABC’s next Bachelor, for the dating series’ 19th edition (premiering in January 2015).

Having made it to the final three of Bachelorette Andi’s picks this summer, the 32-year-old, 6-foot-1, blue-eyed Soules is described as a “humble but enormously successful farmer from tiny Arlington, Iowa (pop. 427).”

That’s the sum total of what I could possibly say on the matter. Your thoughts, if any?

    Not surprised but honestly not impressed either. I never really liked him as much as everyone else did. Just not my kind of guy. For his sake I hope they cast a bunch of country girls because this farmer wants a farmer’s wife, not a career girl.

      I’m with you!! He was just ok to me. I knew whomever they picked as the next bachelor would be boring. He may be a good guy, but sometimes that doesn’t make for good tv. Hopefully they pick interesting women because that’s the only way the show will work.

      I went to a small private high school and I thought it was tiny (approx. 440)!!! I can only imagine what it’s like to live in such a small town. Everybody must know everybody else and their business. Yikes!

  2. Honestly, as cute and nice as the guy is, I personally would have a really hard time moving to a town that small. I think that’s going to be hard for these women to wrap their minds around.

    Loved Chris but hope the producers do not change him too much. Sometimes who seems like the best candidate for this upgrade opportunity disappoints. But Chris seems so decent and real and fun. Pitching livestock poop for years and hours under a hot sum summers will keep it honest in you. This from a farmer kid here! Good luck all, especially the clueless bimbos who probably will pull a Jessica Simpson “chicken-tuna” comment when it comes to talking agriculture.

    Would certainly not have been my choice. But the only two I could think of that I would have wanted was Brookes, who for reasons only known to him, decided to try Bachelor in (is it really) Paradise or Arie from Season Emily (?).

    I’ll most likely watch for the laughs and I always enjoy a good eye roll to the top of my head, but Chris just never did it for me. Maybe if he got a new hairstyle it might not be too bad. I hope they got a whole lotta farm girls.

    He’s a sweet guy but soooo boring. I guess the producers couldn’t twist Brooks Forrester’s arm enough, because I know he would have been their top choice, even prior to Juan Pablo’s casting.
