Chris Soules as The Bachelor: Where Will He Rank?

by at . Comments

With Chris Soules confirmed as The Bachelor, we can officially start pondering where he ranks among the men who have doled out the roses on the ABC staple.

While we won't get to judge the whole package until next March, when his season concludes (Juan Pablo sounded good in theory), we can weigh in on this:

Is he the hottest of the hot guys to headline the series?!

The 32-year-old from Arlington, Iowa, was one of the final three men standing on the just-wrapped season of The Bachelorette that starred Andi Dorfman.

Making it that far spoke volumes about Chris Soules, a rugged yet intelligent, sensitive man's man, a family-oriented farmer who cleans up awfully nice.

Bachelor Nation was vocal about wanting him to take over the franchise, and according to The Bachelor spoilers king Reality Steve, he will do so.

We imagine his supporters are ecstatic. But it begs several questions:

  • Will Chris Soules' seemingly impeccable character withstand the scrutiny of a TV role that demands a certain level of scandal and intrigue?
  • Will he reveal there is more to him than has met the eye so far?
  • Will the producers try to recruit women who might really mesh with Chris, or on the contrary, those who are likely to inject the most drama?
  • Will he find the love he's looking for, or leave empty-handed?

Weigh in on these issues and vote in our survey below:

Chris Soules: A good choice for The Bachelor?


sometimes boring is good! why do you want drama all the time? it's nice to have a wholesome guy, one that is down to earth, thinks of the others feelings and is romantic too! i just hope they bring in women that will match his heart. i would love to have someone like him. good luck Chris!


he's boring. I suspect this will be the lowest rated bachelor season ever.


as low as possible because he likes to fool ladies!!
