‘The Bachelor’ News: Is Chris Soules Already In Love After Filming Only Five Episodes?

Chris Soules has already filmed the first four episodes of The Bachelor 2015 and is well on his way to finding love. Reality Steve reports that filming for episode five got underway in New Mexico on Saturday, so that means more than half of the 25 girls Chris met at the Bachelor mansion two weeks ago have already been eliminated.

Fans of the ABC reality show can’t wait to watch Chris’ journey to find love when it premieres in January. Many are already wondering if he has his eye on anyone in particular and if he will get engaged during the season finale. It’s likely that whoever he picks may be a blonde — Realty Steve recently revealed the names and photos of some of Chris’ 25 girls, and the majority of them are blonde.

After meeting 25 ladies at the LA mansion on the first night of filming (September 25), it’s likely that Chris already has a good idea who he doesn’t click with, although WetPaint reports that Bachelor producer Mike Fleiss tweeted that the first night was “great and bizarre” — and that may mean fans are in for a very dramatic season. Hopefully there are a few women who aren’t “bizarre” so Chris can fall in love and find himself a wife.

In prior seasons of The Bachelor, at least 15 ladies are eliminated by the fourth episode, with another two sent packing by episode five. Sean Lowe sent home nine ladies on night one of Season 17, and Juan Pablo ditched seven contestants on the Season 18 premiere. With at least two women leaving at every rose ceremony on episodes two through five, it’s likely that Chris will only have ten women left after this weekend’s rose ceremony in New Mexico.

Bachelor Chris Soules has yet to travel outside of the U.S., with four episodes filmed in California and the cast and crew currently filming in New Mexico. Where will Chris go next and what country will the final rose ceremony be filmed in? Reality Steve reports that the Bachelor usually heads overseas by episode five, with hometowns typically filmed on the seventh episode.

From the sounds of it, ABC is doing a good job of changing things up this season. Bachelor Chris Soules is still in the U.S. as of today, with just two episodes prior to meeting the families of his final four picks.

Is it possible that the All-American farmer is going to film the entire season in the United States? Never say never. While fans love experiencing a little around-the-world travel while they watch The Bachelor, time will tell if producers have decided to share the beauty of our country as farmer tries to find a wife.
