Wetpaint Entertainment spoke exclusively with Chris’ sister Renee, who, along with his other sister, Teresa, launched the Facebook fan page “Team Chris” . Renee opened up about the kind of guy Chris is, the reasons he signed on for the show, and why he’s such a catch!
Wetpaint Entertainment: The Facebook page is really sweet. Why did you and Teresa create it? Renee: Well, as everyone knows, contestants have to shut off their social media as well as phone and email access while they’re filming for several weeks. Team Chris is a way for us to support Chris while he is away and to provide a community for friends, family and fans to receive positive, accurate updates and stay connected to Chris. Most importantly, we did it for Chris, so he could witness all the love and support and come home to something special regardless the outcome of the show.
It sounds like he’s a real family man… Yes. He’s extremely close to his friends and family and it doesn’t even matter that they live all across the country.
Did he know from the start that the Bachelorette would be Emily? He didn’t know at first. But at one point, the producers asked him what his type would be and he said a sweet blonde girl from the south! So, when he found out towards the end of the audition process that it was Emily, he was thrilled and it confirmed his decision to do the show.
Do you think your brother is ready to date a woman with a child? Or to relocate if that’s called for? Absolutely. Our cousins have young kids and he’s great with them. The kids adore him as well. He’ll be an amazing dad. In terms of relocating, he’s lived in different parts of the country before. I think he’d be open to it if it were for the right reasons…and the right person.
