While the former Bachelor probably isn't watching this season of Bachelor in Paradise, Chris Soules has been keeping Prince Farming fans up-to-date on his whereabouts by actively posting on social media. His Instagram account is filled photos of his travels, his farm back in Iowa, and some cute Throwback Thursday posts. There are so many awesome ones that I think it's about time for a compilation of Chris Soules' cutest childhood #TBT posts from Instagram. His throwback photos show the Bachelor as an adorable child, a handsome football player, and a bright, young farmer with lots of corn in his future.
Prince Farming ended his tenure on The Bachelor with an engagement to Whitney Bischoff, but the couple broke it off not too long after. Alas, it was not meant to be. Soules then went onto compete on ABC's Dancing With the Stars, where he paired with professional dancer Witney Carson. Unfortunately, Soules didn't make it to the finals, but he was glad to get back to farming (finally). "My family needs me back there and we're in the middle of planting season which is one of the most important times of the year for us," he told Us Weekly back in May. "I'm excited to be back there, that's something I really enjoy."
He has indeed been busy farming and moving on from The Bachelor, as well as looking back in the occasional #TBT post. Here are some of his cutest ones.
1. Hanging With His Cousin
The farmer reflected on chilling with his cousin Ben on the farm when they were just tots. Look at that huge grin!
2. Prince Farming's First Tractor
This TBT goes back to Soules' very first tractor ride with his grandfather. The Soules start 'em young.
3. "Younger Bachelor Days"
I wonder if he ever gave her a rose.
4. Cousin Ben & Pigs
His appreciation for pigs also started early.
5. His Football Days
Soules played for the Starmont High School football team back in the day and was part of a team that finished as runner-up for the Iowa state championship. He was also part of the school's Future Farmers Of America club (duh).
6. Hauling Corn With Dad
Aww, a father and son moment on the farm.
7. Tractor Training
Even as a little boy, Soules knew what he wanted to do with his life, and he's happy to share those childhood dreams with all his fans!
