Get ready, Bachelor Nation! Chris Soules — Iowa-based farmer, sensitive hopeless romantic, and all-around hunky-looking guy — is almost ready to take reign as The Bachelor and whittle down 25 women looking for love to the one he wants to make his wife. And while his season won't air until January, we're finally getting a taste of Chris the Farmer as the man in charge — his first promo photo was released!

Wearing a navy blue suit, checkered tie and pocket square, Chris smizes perfectly as he leans against a barn door in this promotional image for the popular franchise's 19th season. The words next to him? "Traditional. Classic. All-American." Amen to that!

The funniest part is that this promo also digs at the franchise's last leading man, who, to be blunt, was a total fail. Traditional and classic? Juan Pablo definitely was not.

We're excited to see Chris as Bachelor — especially if he's going to keep looking like this — and we're sure his ladies in waiting are even more excited. After all, Chris was so popular on Andi's season of the Bachelorette that during the Men Tell All special a woman in the audience actually got up and asked the farmer out on a date! Better yet, we can't wait to see his super-sweet mom again, who completely stole the show during Andi's hometown date.

Until January 5th, we'll continue to gawk over this ah-ma-zing poster.
