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.
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.
No, the photo was not captioned "I'm The Bachelor," and we don't expect to hear him say it in those words until the end of Bachelor in Paradise.
The network is no doubt holding off until that finale for the big "reveal," even though it will come as a surprise to no one that Chris Soules gets the nod.
He's bringing farmers back, or something. Did they ever leave? Were they ever at the forefront of masculinity and sexiness in the pop cultural sense?
We're not sure. But his selection should play well with Bachelor Nation, which pushed for him to get the nod as soon as Andi Dorfman let him go.
Are you excited to watch Chris Soules as The Bachelor?
