Prince Farming is engaged. Chris Soules picked Whitney as his bride-to-be. I have know this since before the show aired, due to spoilers. However, I think it adds to the drama to see how they edit the women on the show, and if she is a front runner, or comes from behind. I don’t want every episode, especially if it gets annoying. But I love the endings, lol.
Whitney definitely came from behind. The front-runner was always Britt until she self-imploded in Iowa. Then, the front runner was Becca, after she came clean about being a virgin in the Fantasy Suite. The forbidden fruit, anyone?
Now I’m not saying that Chris Soules is a man-whore, at least not anymore than some of the other Bachelors. He definitely was the make-out King tho, and has a certain reputation back in Iowa for being a ladies man. Put 25 gorgeous women in front of a man, and he is not going to be posing for holy pictures any time soon. But I do think that Chris was one of the most sincere bachelors, in quite a while, which was refreshing. I loved it when he was uncomfortable and his eyes would start twitching and he would have to excuse himself. He was NOT a bull-shitter.
While I think that Chris knew that Whitney was the LOGICAL choice, I think his heart was telling him differently. I think his heart was really pining hopes on Becca. I give props to Becca though, for holding her ground. She wasn’t sure. Heck, most of the Bachelor engagements don’t last, and she knew that. So why declare your love and then break up a few months later. There was no way Becca was ever going to move to Iowa. So good on you, girl.
And boy, the look on Chris’s face when he saw Becca last night……now I’m no love expert, but he had puppy dog eyes all over her. He hugged and kissed her multiple times. He was wearing his heart on his sleeve. And his lips. And his hands. Gotta wonder if Whitney was watching from back stage. Chris said several times that he was “moving forward”. Probably because looking back was too painful.
Whitney was the smart player, all season. No drama, always said the right thing, gushed over Iowa and Chris’s family. Is she madly in love with Chris? Probably. Is she going to move to Iowa any time soon? Well, she did quit her job as a fertility nurse, and got a new job. In Chicago. Hmmm. Sounds like she wants to take it slow. Hmmm. Kinda like Becca said, only SHE said it before the finale.
Whitney apparently decided she was NOT going to watch the show, except for her dates with Chris. I think she KNEW that she would be VERY jealous of his relationship with other women. I mean, come on, Chris was doing everything he could to get Becca to say she loved him, so he could pick her. Obviously people/social media was all over that and like Whitney said last night, she couldn’t avoid hearing about it. In fact, Chris Harrison ASKED her on live TV how she felt about it, after she said she didn’t want to know! And then Chris Harrison was actually asking them if they were fitting in lots of time to make love! Harrison is such a douche.
Don’t get me started with Jimmy Kimmel. Jimmy always makes his predictions before the season starts. He picks the top 4 girls. He ALWAYS gets it right. How? He reads the same spoiler that I do, and millions of other fans. RealitySteve.com Not that he gives any credit to Steve. He pretends that he is a good guesser. Come on. And the cow named Juan Pablo? It did give me a laugh. But talk about cross overs….ABC has got the Bachelor everywhere. But that’s cool. It’s all about the money. Gotta strike while the iron is hot. Wonder how long Chris will last on Dancing with the Stars. A few weeks at least, I would think. We’ll see if Farm Boy’s got rhythm.
So. Do YOU think Chris got it right? Who was YOUR favorite?
P.S. And how bout them two Bachelorettes? Not a totally new thing. They did it on the Bachelor with Byron. Remember?
