Chris Soules Dating Ben Higgins’ Ex? Former ‘Bachelor’ Spotted Getting Cozy With A Familiar Face

Chris Soules may have finally found another girlfriend after his breakup with Whitney Bischoff.

According to The Stir, the former Bachelor star is now in a relationship with Amanda Stanton, who appeared on Ben Higgins’ run on The Bachelor.

Soules shared a few videos on Snapchat of himself and Stanton dancing together during Wango Tango. Other reality alums were hanging out with the pair, including Nick Viall, Ashley Iaconetti, and Chris Harrison, so it isn’t clear if Stanton and Soules were together or just being extra friendly.

Soules has been a single man ever since he and Bischoff ended their engagement plans.

After her stint on The Bachelor, Stanton was linked to Jef Holm. Based on her recent interactions with Soules, however, her time with Holm is likely already over.

According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Soules’ recent pairing with Stanton is not that surprising, especially considering how a lot of former contestants seem to hook up after their time on the show ends.

Even still, the idea that Soules and Stanton are together has generated a lot of buzz with fans. After all, Soules’ run on The Bachelor proved fruitless, and many fans want to see him find love.

If the rumors are true, then it looks like Soules is serious about getting back in the dating game. Considering Stanton’s run on The Bachelor, she might be the perfect match for the Iowa farmer.

During her bid for Higgins’ heart, Stanton made it a point that her daughters were the most important thing in her life. She even revealed that no other man in her life has ever been introduced to her daughters.

Although Higgins made a trip to her hometown and spent an afternoon with Stanton’s two girls, things did not end well. As fans will recall, Higgins dumped Stanton right after his trip to bond with her daughters.

Now, it appears as though Stanton has found another romance with Chris Soules. That being said, Soules doesn’t exactly come to the relationship without a good share of baggage.

Fashion & Style reports that Soules and Bischoff ended their relationship after rumors surfaced that he had cheated on her with his partner on Dancing With the Stars. In a joint statement, the two officially announced their split in May of 2015.

“Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement,” the statement declared. “[They have] respect and admiration for one another.”

Following the breakup, Soules retreated to his farm in Iowa and has remained single. His single status, however, has not kept him out of the spotlight.

The former Bachelor star went on-set during Higgins’ season. It was there that Stanton first caught Soules’ attention.

During his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Soules revealed that Stanton stood out to him when he visited the set with Nick Viall, Ashley Iaconnetti, Samantha Steffen, and Chris Harrison.

Apparently, Stanton made such a good impression that Soules followed up, and the two are now dating.

That being said, neither Stanton nor Soules have officially declared their relationship. Instead, Soules has yet to change his status as a single man.

When speaking to Kimmel, Soules blamed his single life on his hometown and a lack of major cities.

“It doesn’t have enough range to get the cities around us,” Soules shared.

At the same time, Soules also shared a message on Twitter that hinted he is not ready to start dating just yet.

“Taking a much-needed break from dating in Deadwood,” Soules wrote. “Good old Bachelor memories.”

Of course, his latest interactions with Stanton at Wango Tango hint that the two are more than just friends. Whether or not their romance turns into a relationship is yet to be seen.
