What Is Whitney Bischoff Doing Now? Chris Soules' Ex Put 'The Bachelor' Behind Her

As the world turns, the weather gets colder, and the days get shorter, The Bachelor premieres yet again. This year marks the 20th installment of the show, and it is gearing up to be one of the best. Starting Jan. 4, a covey of women will all vie for the affections of Ben Higgins, the 26-year-old who was passed over by Kaitlyn Bristowe on last season of The Bachelorette. Kaitlyn herself was an eager contender of Chris Soules’ season of the show (its 19th installment), but was eventually sent home in favor of Whitney Bischoff, a fertility specialist who stole farmer Chris’ heart. Unfortunately, the two recently broke off their engagement, leaving Bachelor Nation to wonder: What has Whitney Bischoff been up to since The Bachelor ended?

Luckily, Whitney's social media followers don’t have to speculate much about her whereabouts due to the 30-year-old's active Twitter and Instagram presence. Although it doesn't appear that Whitney has had any major life changes, it seems that she has had a pretty busy year. Here are a few indicators about what The Bachelor star has been doing in the time since her engagement and breakup last spring:

She Might Have A New Boyfriend

It seems that, after she and Chris Soules called off their engagement, Whitney got back into the dating scene. Her posts on social media have shown her in the presence of a man named Ricky Angel, who doesn't seem to be as avid a poster as she is, but seems like a pretty cute guy. Good luck with your new boo thang, Whitney.

She Keeps Up With Bachelor Nation

It always strikes me as odd how close the contestants on The Bachelor seem to get, but I guess if you have that many women living in a house together, some major bonding is bound to occur. Her tweets to runner-up Becca Tilley make it seem like the gals are pretty genuine pals, and she even has some posts featuring Jade Roper. Once you go Bachelor BFFs, you can never go back.

She's Been Supporting Charitable Giving

Whitney always seemed like a sweet person, and these posts seem to indicate that her heart is in the right place. She's advocated for donations for breast cancer research and also gave major props to Elan Gale, the producer of the Bachelor, for giving $20,000 to Next Door Solutions, a foundation that fights domestic violence. Beautiful inside and out!

She's Been Drinking... Lots Of Coffee

Every other post out of hers mentions either coffee or wine consumption, which is something I'm pretty sure all of us can get behind. Nothing says "I am every woman" like a shoutout to your morning caffeination routine, or wine wind down. Cheers to that, Whitney!
