"The Bachelor" star Chris Soules and Rumer Willis' recent appearance together at a Knicks game on Wednesday, 7 October, in New York City has sparked rumours that the duo could be dating.
It is not surprising that Soules and Willis know each other, as the pair competed on season 20 of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." However, at the time they were both rumoured to be dating their professional dancing partners. While Soules was linked to Witney Carson, Val Chmerkovskiy was believed to have caught Willis' fancy.
Not much was written about these rumoured romances after the dancing reality show ended.
As for Willis and Soules' recent rendezvous, Celeb Dirty Laundry noted that the pair was sitting in the VIP section, and it appeared like Demi Moore and Bruce Willis' daughter couldn't "keep her hands off the Iowa farmer, or her attention on the basketball game."
Soules even uploaded a picture of him with Willis on his Instagram page. "Courtside with @ruelarue at last night's @nyknicks game. So awesome #newyorkcity," he captioned the picture.
Multiple witnesses who were present at the basketball game also told the publication that Soules and Willis seemed like a couple, prompting speculations that Willis might have been the reason why Whitney Bischoff called it quits with Soules.
When Bischoff and Soules called it quits in May, just a few months after they got engaged on national television, the pair refused to divulge the reason for the break-up.
"Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement," the pair said in a statement at the time. "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."
But rumours were rife that Soules wasn't completely faithful to his fiancée, and his roving eyes caused the split.
While it is not immediately clear if Soules and Willis are an item, Celeb Dirty Laundry feels that Willis could be Soules' ticket to Hollywood.
"Rumer and Chris are probably the oddest couple ever. Of all the men knocking on Rumer's door – we're baffled why she would choose a reality TV star from Iowa. But, we all know what Chris is doing with Rumer, she could be the missing piece of the puzzle that he has been searching for – their relationship will give him the edge he needs to fully burst in to the Hollywood scene," the media outlet noted.
