‘Bachelor’ 2015: Chris Soules Drops Major Hint, Sites Confirm He’s The Next ‘Bachelor’

The Bachelor 2015 has not yet been confirmed by ABC — but Chris Soules just dropped a major hint! On Thursday, The Bachelorette contestant (who was sent home by Andi Dorfman during his overnight date) tweeted about needing a wife and used a couple of hashtags that pretty much summed up all of the rumors: Chris is totally the next Bachelor!

I have the best fan/followers in the world! #farmerneedsawife#Bachelor

Despite the news being confirmed weeks ago by Reality Steve, some people think that this is way too good to be true. Since ABC has not made an official announcement (usually the new star is announced on After The Final Rose), some are wondering whether or not Chris has actually inked a deal. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, there have been some reports that there is another guy in the running.

The Bachelor 2015 could be Chris Soules, but it could also be Emily Maynard’s ex, Arie Luyendyk, Jr. (collective sigh). However, Chris’ tweet was quite telling. And if you need even more proof, Bachelor In Paradise star Cody Sattler (the personal trainer also from Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette) spilled the beans. According to Hollywood Life, Sattler said that he is pumped for his buddy to take the helm (as are the rest of the women in the country, but that’s neither here nor there).

“Chris was one of the very first guys I had a good connection with in the house. Even this week [at ‘After the Final Rose’], we kicked it. He is a good dude and I couldn’t be more excited for him to be ‘The Bachelor.’ I’m sure casting is going on. I’m not sure when it’s going on, but they start casting way out. I’m sure they have a few country girls ready for Chris!”

The Bachelor 2015 has already started casting, and Chris Soules’ name has come up to women who have auditioned. Also, there were plenty of signs on After The Final Rose— like when host Chris Harrison was talking about The Bachelor and Soules turned bright red and had a super cheesy (read sexy) smile on his face. Oh, and then Harrison walked over to Soules and patted him on the back.

With all of this information, fans of The Bachelor should be preparing for the farmer to find love when the show returns next season (likely in January). Arie who?
