ABC has yet to confirm the identity of next season’s Bachelor, but if the latest Facebook rumors are to be believed, Chris Soules will be the lucky guy. Chris was a clear fan favorite during Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette, and he obviously has the type of personality necessary to pull off a full season of The Bachelor.
Will Chris Soules be the next Bachelor? Fans of the Bachelorette runner-up sure hope so, as his kind personality reminds many of the beloved Sean Lowe. And while Chris didn’t end up being Andi Dorfman’s soul mate, the reality star is still eager to find true love. Most of the other fan favorites from the last few seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have wound up on Bachelor In Paradise, making Chris’ absence very suspicious. ABC is not quite ready to clue fans in, so for now, continued speculation will have to suffice.
According to Reality Steve, Chris Soules will be confirmed as the new Bachelor in the near future. Filming will begin soon after — it is typical for ABC to start this process in September. Chris may be aware of his status as The Bachelor front runner, but he’s taking care to avoid spoilers on Twitter. He did, however, retweet a series of supportive fan messages, later adding that, in his opinion, “the farmer needs a wife.”
Would you like to see Chris Soules take on the esteemed role of The Bachelor? Would he be an improvement over Juan Pablo? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it, so feel free to sound off in the comments section below!
