And the next Bachelor is ... Chris Soules! "Farmer Chris" (as we and Bachelor Nation like to call him) was one Andi Dorfman's final three suitors on her recent season of The Bachelorette. While Andi wasn't keen on a future in Iowa, fans fell hard for this sweet farmer with strong family values.
Alas, Luyendyk tweeted today that he will not be the star next season, confirming Soules as Bachelor. "I'm not the Bachelor," Luyendyk tweeted. "Have fun on the farm people."
We're not surprised ABC chose Soules to front their franchise next season. As we mentioned, fans are obsessed with him. He's also a total class act, leaving the set of The Bachelorette with such grace after getting dumped, telling Andi that he respects her decision and hopes she finds love. Plus, his family is so lovable too (especially his mom!), that they swayed Andi to keep him around after hometown dates, when otherwise, it seemed like she would've said goodbye to him then.

Most importantly, though: Have you seen this guy in a denim shirt or riding a tractor? As Andi emphatically pointed out on her dates with him, homeboy is h-o-t.
