Hey, anyone want to move to Iowa? ABC confirmed this morning on Good Morning America that the new Bachelor is going to be Chris Soules, the farmer from Iowa who Andi Dorfman infamously sent home just before fantasy suites last season on The Bachelorette.

The news has been a long time coming, and ever since Andi’s Men Tell All special earlier this summer, fans kind of had an inkling that fan-favorite Chris would get the gig. Hey, he never denied that he was a candidate! But the decision this time took way longer than usual to make. The other guy in the running was Arie Luyendek Jr, who tweeted yesterday that he wasn’t chosen, so today’s GMA announcement wasn’t exactly shocking.
I’m not the Bachelor, have fun on the farm people ✌️

Chris is good-looking and funny, but of course what will probably make his season different is that he’s a farmer from Iowa. Whoever he ends up with with have to be okay with that lifestyle, which was most certainly a breaking point in Chris relationship with Atlanta-based Andi.
Are you happy that Chris is the new Bachelor? Disappointed that Arie didn’t get picked? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
