UPDATE 6/23/14: As the season progresses and we get unhealthily attached to Chris Soules's dimples, it gets even harder for us to write about his eventual departure from our Monday night ritual. But alas, his time, though longer than some, is limited on Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette. Just how limited? A little more so than we previously reported in the original story below. Sad sigh.    

According to Reality Steve, our favorite farmer is one of the final three standing. That we already knew. What we also thought we knew, was that C.Soules would get eliminated at the Rose Ceremony following Fantasy Suite Dates. RS is now saying that nope, the Georgia Peach doesn't even let Chris get any overnight 1-on-1 time with her, and that she sends him packing earlier in the episode, before Chris Harrison even gets the chance to hand her the super awkward Fantasy Suite Date key. This begs the question WHAT WAS SHE THINKING??!?!!?!

We wouldn't kick Chris outta bed for eating hayseeds and we're having trouble believing Andi was sure enough he wasn't for her that she didn't even want to see him in his jammies (we picture the full-bodied footed kind with a tractor pattern across the bum flap). But whatevs, that just means we get to don our best overalls, hop a plane to Iowa (where now), and track his dimples down and secure them for ourselves. Your loss, Andi.

So what does Chris's early-in-the-episode-exit mean for the two remaining men (Josh Murray and Nick Viall)? They have a Rose Ceremony where no one gets eliminated and both men gladly accept Andi's rose.         

ORIGINAL STORY 5/20/14: You know how we know that Andi Dorfman is a smart girl? No, it’s not the 2014 Bachelorette’s law degree or quick wit. It’s that she gives super handsome farmer Chris Soules one of the first 1-on-1 dates of the season!

The 32-year-old Lamont, Iowa native lives worlds apart from Andi, but they seem to totally connect on Season 10 Episode 2, airing May 26. On their date, Andi takes him to the Santa Anita racetrack for some 1940s style fun (whatever that means). They totally vibe, as we can tell by their sexy kiss — and by Reality Steve's scoop that he easily gets a rose after the date.

And that’s just the first of many, many roses for the multi-millionaire “land baron” who works on his fourth-generation farm. On Episode 3, Chris gets left at the hotel while the rest of the crew dates his girlfriend. But the following week, he’s right back in it, as he lands a plane ticket to Connecticut for Episode 4.

We hope he packed a lot of underwear, cuz Chrissy pie is heading to Europe for the next several legs of the trip, even grabbing the Group Date Rose in Italy on Episode 6 (airing June 23). In fact, the 6-foot-1 babe has a whirlwind love with Andi, and wins the honor of taking her home for Hometown Dates as one of her final four.

Buuuuuut don’t get too attached, because perhaps Chris needs to work on his overnight strategy (if you know what we’re saying). Steve says she sends him off the island after Fantasy Suites, leaving him out of the final duel. But not to worry, fans of hot guys with money and charm: R.S. sounds like he’s pretty sure Chris will be the next Bachelor, if he wants the job. Sign us up!
