It’s been almost a year since Bachelor Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff broke off their engagement and when the famous farmer recently revealed that he is looking for love again, fans wondered how he would find the girl of his dreams in his hometown of Arlington, Iowa — population 416-ish.
Although it’s not likely that he’ll return for a second shot as The Bachelor, rumors immediately surfaced that Chris would be open to joining the cast of Bachelor in Paradise this summer for a casual fling or to possibly find a long-term relationship.
Although the Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 cast list won’t be confirmed until closer to the August premiere, Chris cut the rumors short and told fans that he will not be appearing on ABC’s summer reality show because he already has a true love!
Despite rumors I will be foregoing the Bachelor in Paradise for my one true love of corn, soybeans and piggies.

“Despite rumors I will be foregoing the Bachelor in Paradise for my one true love of corn, soybeans and piggies,” Chris tweeted last week.
It sounds like farm life trumps finding a wife right now, but Soules seems to have no problem attracting ladies. Paradise star Ashley Iaconetti recently dished about her sister Lauren’s hook up with Chris on Jenny McCarthy’s Sirius XM radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny.
Although she didn’t come out and say it, Ashley hinted that Chris and Lauren “may or may not have” made out during Jade and Tanner’s wedding and she “maybe” spent the night with the former Bachelor in his hotel room.
Although that fling didn’t turn into a relationship, there are plenty of girls in the Bachelor family who have the potential to be a farmer’s wife.
When Ben’s season of the Bachelor was airing, Chris told Jimmy Kimmel that the single mom of two caught his eye (video below). Hmmm! He is great with kids — as evidenced by his pics with his nieces and nephews — and he travels to the L.A. area often, so never say never.
