Before Chris Soules was The Bachelor, and before he was paired with Witney Carson on Dancing With the Stars, he was a contestant on Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette. The Iowa business owner, dubbed “Prince Farming,” seemed to have real chemistry with Dorfman before their relationship came to an abrupt end.
Soules made it to Andi’s final three, but she sent him home before the Fantasy Suite. She said on the show, “I just think I’d rather be honest with you and tell you that I’m trying and I’m trying but it’s not there.”
Apparently all is forgiven. In an interview with Access Hollywood that aired Friday, Soules revealed that his fiance, Whitney Bischoff, planned to attend the Kentucky Derby Saturday. Her date? Andi Dorfman.
As dedicated viewers of The Bachelor and Bachelorette know, Andi Dorfman eventually chose Josh Murray, but the couple broke up shortly after the premiere of Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor. Bischoff ultimately received the final rose from Soules.
Both women showed off their derby style on Instagram Saturday, as Soules continued Dancing With the Stars rehearsals.

It’s unclear whether Bischoff and Dorfman compared notes of their time with Soules. Whitney gave a nod to her fiance’s absence from the Kentucky Derby with an Instagram picture. She included the caption: “Not a lot of money gained, but a lot of fun and memories made! Only thing missing was a winning ticket and @souleschris.”
Chris Soules seemed to confirm the couple is still planning a wedding. When asked by Access Hollywood about potentially using his new dancing skills at the reception, Soules said that Carson would be doing the choreography. You can have a look at the video below.
Going into Week 8 of Dancing With the Stars, Soules and Carson are underdogs despite steady scores and a dedicated fan base. Monday is America’s Choice, and Soules and Carson have been polling followers about the details of the performance, from Carson’s hair to how they will finish the routine.
