Former "The Bachelor" star Chris Soules recently took to Twitter to put to rest rumours that he will appear on "Bachelor in Paradise." Soules had two opportunities to find love on television, but nothing worked out for the farmer from Arlington, Iowa.
During his stint on Andi Dorfman's season of "The Bachelorette," Soules was among the final four, but she went on to pick Josh Murray. Soules then got yet another opportunity when he was picked as "The Bachelor" for Season 19, where he went on to find love with Whitney Bischoff. However, their relationship did not work out and the two called it quits just a couple of months after viewers saw him picking Bischoff as the winner.
But when a fan recently asked him on Twitter if he would like yet another opportunity to find love on television by taking part in "Bachelor in Paradise," Soules said he wanted to date like normal people. "No, there are too many good guys out there that deserve the opportunity. I'm happy to date like a normal guy," Soules said.
"Despite rumors I will be foregoing the Bachelor in Paradise for my one true love of corn, soybeans and piggies," said Soules, who was dubbed "Prince Farming" during his stint on "The Bachelor."
On the love front, Soules is still single since splitting up with Bischoff. But the two still keep in touch, Soules revealed to Us Weekly in October 2015. "We're still friends and we catch up regularly. She's doing great."
At the time he also said that being on "The Bachelor" has helped him feel a sense of responsibility to be an advocate for agriculture. "Even though that really wasn't second nature to me, I felt the popularity from the shows and the platform that I was given... was a great opportunity for me to actually speak to the fans that I have," he told Us.
