The bach­e­lor

TV Plus (South Africa) - - MOVIE MENU -

last year’s bach­e­lor juan pablo galavis was crit­i­cised for be­ing rude and in­sin­cere, but this year’s heart­throb sin­gle­ton is a to­tal softie. from his dopey grin to his pup­py­dog eyes, 33-year-old farmer chris soules is al­ready a favourite among fans of the bach­e­lor (2002-cur­rent).

chris grew up on a grain farm in ar­ling­ton, iowa where he learnt to drive a trac­tor long be­fore he got be­hind the wheel of a car. when chris was a teenager, he got into a bit of trou­ble with the law. his list of mis­de­meanours in­clude be­ing pulled over for a dui, pos­ses­sion of al­co­hol as a mi­nor and fight­ing. since then, he’s cleaned up his act and has grown his fam­ily’s farm­ing business to be a suc­cess. when he’s not farm­ing, chris is also a real-es­tate mogul. that makes him quite the catch. not only is he hand­some, but he’s a mil­lion­aire too. the 1.85m-tall blue-eyed bach­e­lor loves amer­i­can foot­ball, camp­ing and coun­try mu­sic. chris doesn’t have any kids yet, but he’s said that he wants a big fam­ily with at least four to six chil­dren. be­fore ap­pear­ing on sis­ter show the bach­e­lorette in 2014, chris was plan­ning to get mar­ried but broke off the en­gage­ment just a few months be­fore the wed­ding. “while my re­la­tion­ship with my fi­ancée was good, i didn’t want to set­tle for good. i wanted great,” chris ex­plains. fel­low bach­e­lorette con­tes­tant and per­sonal trainer cody sat­tler, who com­peted against chris for andi dorf­man’s heart, trained chris into top shape for this sea­son of the bach­e­lor. chris de­scribes his dream woman as smart, mo­ti­vated and con­fi­dent. “oh, and she will need to know or learn how to drive a trac­tor,” he laughs.

it’s easy to see why chris soules has been a hit with

the bach­e­lor view­ers.
