All stars of The Bachelor are, by definition, fairly good looking individuals.

But Iowa farmer Chris Soules, a man's man with a million-dollar smile and winning personality to go with his handsome features, may take the cake.

Chris Soules: Hottest Bachelor Yet?

Just look at this photo of him from the Iowa State Fair. We rest our case.

Even if he wasn't your first choice, now that the 32-year-old is confirmed as The Bachelor, there's no denying that he brings a certain X factor to the role.

Not only is Chris Soules easy on the eyes, viewers and contestants alike know exactly where they stand, as he's there looking for a lifelong companion.

Yes, as The Bachelor, this is inherent ... to a point. Read: Juan Pablo Galavis.

Sometimes, the franchise's stars bring an element of mystery, and things don't work out as you'd expect. With Chris, you pretty much know he'll be great.

The Bachelor stars Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici may have had an unconventional love story, but the bond they found was unconditional, and everlasting.

It's hard to believe it's been 17 months since he proposed on The Bachelor season finale. Clearly, the honeymoon phase isn't over, nor will it be anytime soon.

Sean Lowe GUSHED about Catherine in his latest blog post.

Sean, Catherine Lowe

Titled "Caught in Her Web," his August 22 entry on Patheos details "how and when" the Texan realized he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Giudici.

"I guess it was around the time we took a little trip to Thailand," he wrote of Catherine Giudici, the woman that before long would take his heart, and his name.

"Sure, there were two other girls on the trip, but something was settling in my heart about Catherine and it was there to stay. I didn't want to say goodbye to her... ever."

Lowe goes on to praise his wife as "sweet, kind, smokin' hot, goofy, caring, and funny." He fell not just for her, but "the idea of going through life with her."

Chris the Farmer is ready to find his Soules mate.

The Iowa native, a fan favorite during Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette, came on Good Morning America today after being confirmed as The Bachelor.

"I believe in the process," Chris Soules told the morning show's panel. "I believe in what I went through on the previous show and that's why I'm doing it."

Chris got the nod over Arie Luyendyk Jr. for The Bachelor, insiders say, because of his unusual background - not to mention fans' strong connection to him.

Unlike past Bachelor stars, it's very clear what he has to offer. Being a farmer's wife in Iowa might not appeal to every woman, but those it does appeal to?

Expect them to fight hard for Chris, because he blends his manly, yet sophisticated persona with an aura of confidence and chivalry to the role.

"My focus is going to be to make the girls that are on the show as comfortable as possible," he added. "That was my first initial challenge, was opening up to Andi."

"I'm going to do my best. I'm humbled, flattered, grateful."

ABC officially named Chris Soules The Bachelor this week, confirming the worst kept secret that fans have either known or assumed for some time.

That doesn't mean Arie Luyendyk Jr. is happy about it, however.

Arie L

Like Soules, Luyendyk was a former Bachelorette contestant who proved widely popular on the reality show, but fell just short in his journey for love.

Arie, who wooed Emily Maynard in 2012, was being recruited for The Bachelor this year along with Soules, and is said to be "pissed" about the decision.

His own Tweets on the subject weren't that harsh. He wrote:

"I'm not the Bachelor. Have fun on the farm people.”

Arie Luyendyk Jr. "was definitely being considered," says a show source, adding that producers "really liked him" but went with Soules' unique appeal to fans.

Chris Soules has been confirmed as The Bachelor for the 2015 season - this time by the show and not just The Bachelor spoilers that leaked weeks ago.

We've known for a long time that the network named Chris Soules The Bachelor, but it hasn't been officially announced by his employers until today.

Team Chris all the way! Fire up the tractor and let's do this thing, ABC!

Chris Soules is The Bachelor 2015. Here he is, leaving no doubts about it.

Arie Luyendyk Jr., the other former Bachelorette cast member hunk in the running for the job, even said late Monday that he was out of the running.

"I'm not the Bachelor," Luyendyk wrote. "Have fun on the farm people."

Soules, an Iowa farmer, will be bringing the franchise to the heartland.

A Bachelorette fan favorite on Andi Dorfman's recently concluded season, he finished third after the leading lady did not invite him to the Fantasy Suite.

After a whirlwind romance that would give Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard a run for their money, The Bachelor's Renee Oteri is pregnant with a baby boy!

She married Bracy Maynard just four months ago, having reconnected with her "best friend" after getting sent home by Juan Pablo Galavis on the ABC show.

Bracy Maynard, Renee Oteri

"By far one of the most cherished moments imaginable for our family! We love you so much,” the pregnant Renee Oteri wrote on Instagram on Aug. 24.

“Aaaaaaand it’s a… BOY!!! A big thx to friends + family who took planes, trains + automobiles into town for our {post} Wedding Reception + Baby Gender Reveal!"

Renee, who competed for Juan Pablo's heart and made it to the hometown dates on The Bachelor, is just over three months along and due January 19.

“We’re so excited!” Renee told People magazine. “Bracy is already paranoid ... he is always checking in and making sure I’m okay. He’s in dad mode.”

There's no love lost between herself and the franchise that made her a quasi-celeb, but Nikki Ferrell has been settling into real life with Juan Pablo Galavis.

After their season of The Bachelor ended in the farthest way from touching and romantic fashion, many felt this couple would be doomed from the start.

The haters were wrong, and they're loving that.

  • Nikki Ferrell Mug Shots

Seriously, it's been more than six months for them since the show ended, with no evidence of trouble in their relationship. That alone has to shock many.

The only negativity has been directed at ABC.

Juan Pablo has gone off the media grid for the most part since his very public kiss-off to the reality show, while it's been his girl taking the shots at it.

When she's not slamming The Bachelorette producers, bashing Bachelor in Paradise or calling Elise Mosca dumber than a box of rocks, Nikki is really happy.

Well, in most pictures.

Bachelor in Paradise stars Chris Bukowski and Elise Mosca left together in a touching moment to close out Episode 3, but their romance is already over.

Raise your hand if you're surprised.

Chris Bukowski and Elise Mosca

Before Bachelor in Paradise Season 1 Episode 3 even aired, there were whispers of Chris being back on the market. He confirmed that this week.

It's surprising and yet not. Chris could not stop gushing about Elise Mosca’s body, accentuated in a dress fit for a high-end hooker, before he went home with her.

Despite a torn ACL, he looked poised to tear Elise's mermaid bikini off and ransack her all night long ... but he says he never did after they left the pool.

"We actually ended up not even sleeping in the same room that night,” Chris Bukowski says of the horniest 1-on-1 date on The Bachelor spinoff to date.

He didn't get into why, but despite their relationship lasting for about a month after leaving Paradise, Chris says he never hit it at any point - seriously!

The unabashedly terrible spinoff of The Bachelor and Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise is on a roll bringing back old cast members left and right.

If you watch Bachelor in Paradise online, you'll be privy to one blast from the D-list past after another. Not for everyone, but if it's for you, it's awesome!

Who's next to arrive for a shot at love/drama/15 minutes? This dude!

Somewhere, Emily Maynard is shaking her head in disgust/disbelief.

Kalon McMahon, who infamously called Emily’s daughter Ricki “baggage” on The Bachelorette, and who later appeared on Bachelor Pad, is en route to Paradise!

Raise you're hand if you're excited! Hello? Anyone? Is this thing on?

He actually had a good run on the Pad with former Bachelor runner-up Lindzi Cox, but from the looks of the clip above, he's no hit with the current crowd.

Rejected by not one but two girls, will his date card go unused?!
