Bachelor Nation has been the launching pad for many success stories, and we can add Chris Bukowski to that elite group. We already thought the world of the Season 8 Bachelorette and Season 3 Bachelor Pad alum, whom we first met in 2012 when he was a self-described “grown ass man” on Emily Maynard’s season. But Chris just won a major award, and we want to give him a round of applause.

Chris tweeted a pic of himself looking fly while holding a plaque from In The Capital. He captioned the shot, “We did it! Thank you everyone for your continued support of @BracketRoomVA! #bracketroom.” Chris opened his sports bar, The Bracket Room, just last year and is already racking up the awards.

He tweeted out to followers during the vote, asking for Bachelor Nation to rally behind him and his newest post-show venture. It seems they came out in droves, thanks to tweets from show creator Mike Fleiss, producer Robert Mills, and host Chris Harrison. We don’t know what the award comes with, but hopefully a whole packet of gold stars.

In case you haven’t seen enough of Chris recently, we hear that he’s in serious talks to go on Bachelor in Paradise this summer, and may even make an appearance sooner than that…

Congratulations, Chris! You’re kicking butt, even without the quarter-million-dollar purse from Bachelor Pad.

Send super hottie Chris your congratulations messages in the comments!
