Though The Bachelorette put Chris Soules — and Arlington, Iowa — on the map, the 32-year-old gentleman farmer says it’s an experience he wouldn’t want to repeat. He describes courting Andi Dorfman, a woman who just happened to be dating a house full of other bros, as “hard” and says that it only “got worse as time went on.” So is he turning his back on the franchise for-evah?

Don’t you worry ladies, Chris isn’t completely gone from our lives. In an interview with the Des Moines Register, Chris said that while being one of 25 guys competing for the same woman’s attention is something he “probably wouldn’t do again,” he’s totally down to be on the other side of the rose garden.

"You know, I live in Arlington, Iowa, and that's why (going on 'The Bachelorette') made sense,” says McDimples. “It was a good opportunity for a guy like me. And it's an even better opportunity to be on the other side, where you have the opportunity to meet 25 incredible women. So yeah, I would definitely consider it."


What would he be looking for in these 25 incredible women? Take notes, gals. First and foremost, Chris’s one and only needs to know she can make the 50606 her permanent zip code. “This is where I'm going to be for the remainder of my life," he says. Learn how to shuck corn now, ladies.

But Chris wants something more than just a woman willing to call the Hawkeye state home. "I'm just looking for a soul mate. Somebody I just can't live without. Somebody who is a friend and partner and who I have chemistry with. Somebody I can laugh with and enjoy being around every day — the intangibles. Somebody you just know in your heart that it just works and it's going to work forever.” Awwwww, just that? Done and done. Now all we want in return is a customized Prada tractor seat. Thanks, Chris-bear.
