Is Chris Soules Single In 2017? 'The Bachelor' Star Is Focusing On His One True Love
Once a member of Bachelor Nation always a member. That’s why so many former Bachelors (like Chris Soules, for instance, whom was dubbed "Prince Farming" during his time on the show) pop up in other seasons! They’re there for the new Bachelor to offer an ear, lend advice, and prepare him for what’s coming up next. Chris Soules is one of such Bachelors, and I’ll bet my bottom dollar that we’ll see him doling out wise words to new Bachelor Nick Viall (not like Nick needs it, since he’s been on the show like 113 times). Chris will likely help set Nick up for romantic success, but what is Chris Soules’ relationship status?
Chris proposed to Whitney Bischoff on his season of The Bachelor, but unfortunately, their love didn't last long – they broke up in March 2015, and Us Weekly reported that their breakup statement read as follows:
Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement. They part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another and will continue to be supportive friends. They wish to thank everyone who has supported them through this journey.
Vague? Yes. But, that’s to be expected for a Bachelor breakup, because saying, “Well, we really didn’t know each other well enough to get engaged after six weeks, and it just didn’t work out,” is honest but not PR-friendly. Since then, Chris has played it quiet on the romance front.
There was a rumor in the spring of 2016 that Chris would be jumping into the cast of Bachelor In Paradise 3, which I would have loved. Can you imagine Chris stuck in Mexico with Ashley I. and the Ferguson twins for three weeks? That’s great television! Anyway, Chris went on Twitter to announce that he was in love, but he wasn’t going to be on Bachelor In Paradise.
I, too, love corn and pigs, so I get it. Later in 2016, Chris was seen at the Wango Tango concert in Los Angeles hanging out with Amanda Stanton (she was on Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor) and her pals, and that sparked rumors of them dating, too. Chris shot that down, too, in an interview with Reality TV World, saying that he was single and he and Amanda just happened to be at the concert at the same time.
From the looks of it, Chris doesn't seem too worried about his love life. There are no discernible girlfriends on his social media. Instead, he's taking care of his family's farm and acting as an advocate for the farming community and helping those who go hungry. I guess some things are just more important for Chris right now than falling in love, and that's pretty commendable. I'm sure once he has someone in his life he loves as much as his pigs, he'll let us know.
