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.

Well, if this doesn't signal that Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray are moving to L.A. (most likely to compete on Dancing With the Stars), we don't know what will:

They just hired a marketing and PR firm to represent them!

Andi and Josh are now represented by MELT, as she confirmed via Instagram with the photo above. Looks like someone's looking to make some bucks!

Given that Andi quit her job at the Atlanta District Attorney's office, and then the rumors that one or both of them will be on DWTS, it's not surprising.

Plenty of Bachelor and Bachelorette cast members go on to have careers in the industry, which is more than understandable, even largely expected.

They just didn't seem like the types. To us anyway.

That said, it doesn't make the connection of Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray any less legitimate. Reality TV has given them fame. It is what it is.

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."

The cast of Dancing With the Stars Season 19 is less than two weeks away from being announced on ABC's Good Morning America, and the rumors are flying.

Among those reportedly in talks to put on her dancing shoes on the new season? The Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman! Also rumored to be competing?

Her fiance, Josh Murray!

Andi Dorfman left her job as an Assistant D.A. in Atlanta to star on The Bachelorette and meet Josh, so she's got nothing holding her back career-wise.

If she did it AND he joined her, that would make for a great twist - not to mention great ABC cross-promotion - but also test the couple's relationship.

Beyond competing with one another for the Mirror Ball (which we hope would be mostly friendly), there would be long hours and separate practice sessions.

Practice sessions comprised of grinding, touching and suggestively holding other attractive individuals. Cue the celebrity gossip tabloids' cheating rumors!

We'll find out Thursday, September 4 if Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray will be joining the Season 19 cast, or if only one of them is on board or neither.

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!

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.

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?!

If you didn't believe us yesterday that Iowa farmer and Bachelorette third-place finisher Chris Soules is The Bachelor, this photo ought to do the job.

Chris Soules and Cody Sattler

The telling picture on Chris' Instagram page shows the Soules Man with Bachelorette buddy Cody Sattler rocking shirts exclaiming "America Needs Farmers."

While clenching a rose in their teeth for good measure.

This after The Bachelor spoilers guru Reality Steve leaked the news, or at least that it was official (we've all strongly believed it was Chris for awhile).

Hard to see this as anything but a subtle confirmation that he's more than ready to dole out the roses to 25 lucky ladies come January on ABC.

That or he and Cody are just really passionate about agriculture and its role in American life. Which is entirely plausible, but still. This is your Bachelor.

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?!

Chris Soules is The Bachelor for ABC's 2015 season of the hit reality show. Good choice?

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.

The cat is out of the bag. Or in this case, the barn? Farmer Chris Soules will star as The Bachelor for the 2015 season, sources close to the production say.

ABC tried to keep this close to the vest, even implying that other guys were in the running for the job (how seriously they were considered is anyone's guess).

Enter Reality Steve, though, and everything changes. The man who put The Bachelor spoilers on the map has blown the lid off yet another secret.

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

According to Steve, who has giant cojones and doesn't hide his scoop for one second, Soules has already signed a contract and is has begun filming.

While he's been wrong before on several noteworthy occasions, most of the time he is anything but. In fact, Steve's track record is the stuff of legends.

Especially considering that ABC simply cannot foil him, shut him down or figure out how the heck he gets his intel, this feat is all the more impressive.

So despite the subterfuge and rumors that Nick Viall, Arie Luyendyk, Jr., or possibly even Marquel Martin would get the nod, it was Chris' from the start.

On last night's Bachelor in Paradise, someone else bowed out voluntarily, but before we get into that, let's discuss the unquestioned highlight of the episode:

Michelle Kujawa.

Last week, we saw her exit the Bachelor in Paradise premiere at the rose ceremony, hinting that there was no one there for her ... and that she already found love.

Which was it? Both. Let us explain ...

Michelle Kujawa Bikini Photo

It turns out that when she arrived in Mexico, she met a producer for the show named Ryan Putz, and was banging him before and after the premiere episode.

Michelle Kujawa, having eliminated herself abruptly, was in her hotel room with Ryan when someone from the show decided to check up on her.

Ryan hid on a balcony to avoid getting spotted, then for reasons unknown, felt he had to jump to freedom ... from 25 feet up. He broke both ankles.

While this had nothing to do with anything really, it was a reminder that there's some reality left in reality TV, and in the case of Michelle and Ryan, hilariously so.
