15. Chris Soules: Season 19

Chris Soules first graced Bachelor Nation with his presence as a contestant in Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette. He came out of the season with the nickname, “Prince Farming”, and quickly found himself as the lead in the nineteenth season of The Bachelor.

He was a fan favorite from his time as a contestant and so it wasn’t all that shocking when he got the opportunity to embark on his own journey to find the love of his life. His season kicked off with 25 women, and his goal was simple–find a woman that will spend her days with him in a small Iowan town.

While Soules was a fan-favorite from the get-go, his season was rather overshadowed for the duration that contestant Ashley Salter was on it. From her nonsensical rants to waving around a paintball gun in a rather frightening manner, she was definitely all sorts of wild–and memorable to say the least.

Despite the Salter drama, Soules ended his season by proposing to winner Whitney Bischoff in the most fitting locale he could think of–his family’s barn in Iowa. Unfortunately, the relationship didn’t last very long and they called off their engagement just a few months later in May 2015.

Since his days as the Bachelor, Soules’ life has involved lots of farming, being convicted of a felony for which he received two years probation and a handful of relationships including his most recent one with Bachelor Nation alum Victoria Fuller. However, the two have seemingly called it off but according to Soules are still “working on things”.

As of now, it appears Soules spends his days farming in Iowa, and may still be a single man looking for his shot at true love.
