OK, ladies — get your calendars out and draw a giant heart around August 11, 2014, marking it as the day all your wildest dreams came true. If Reality Steve is right, ABC has finally — finally! — cast the lead for Bachelor 2015, and we’re sure more than one of you is going to squeal into your snuggie over who will be keeping your heart warm during the cold winter months of 2015.


Though ABC hasn’t officially announced their choice for head rose giver, RS says casting is a done deal and that the man every woman in America will pine for is… farmer Chris Soules from Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette. On Saturday Steve tweeted, “(SPOILER): It’s official. Chris Soules will be the next ‘Bachelor.’ Signed contract couple days ago & been filmed the last 2 days in Iowa.” Hopefully that filming has been topless...

But doubters gonna doubt — and rumors have been swirling around Arie Luyendyk and Nick Viall being in contention for the role — so Steve reiterated his assertion with “Not sure when ABC will make their official announcement (prob not til September), but it's Chris. Any reports it's Nick or Arie aren't true.”

There you have it, ladies. Get your corn-themed viewing party a-ready! How excited are we that farmer Chris will grace our screens Monday nights? Let us count the ways here.

Do you believe it’s really Chris, or do you think there’s still room for Arie or Nick to nab the title? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
