‘The Bachelor’ 2015 Lead Chris Soules Talks Looking For Love, Opening Himself Up For Show

The premiere of The Bachelor 2015 season with Chris Soules is now less than a month away and fans are anxious to dig in to season 19. Just what kind of bachelor will Chris be? He’s opening up and giving fans a bit of insight into his decision to do the show and chances are that viewers are going to love having him in charge of the roses this season.

Chris Soules tells Entertainment Tonight that with him, for the most part what you see is what you get. He says he’s going to be open-hearted and really get to know the bachelorettes participating in his season. The Bachelor 2015 lead says that he is really looking for someone who compares well to his mother and sisters, as he’s a big family man.

Soules says that he’s at a point in his life where he really wants to find love, and fans are hopeful that he will do just that. While some Bachelor fans are worried he will seem a bit dull and safe, others think he will be a welcome breath of fresh air after season 18 starring Juan Pablo Galavis. Soules has said that he is definitely different from Juan Pablo, and most fans are relieved to know that.

As Reality TV World notes, during a conference call with media Chris says he will always be involved in the family business of farming, so his life in Iowa is something he will never give up. In fact, filming took place during a very busy time for his family’s business, and he had serious concerns about leaving his dad to take care of everything while he headed off to film.

Chris may feel tied to Iowa, and he caught some gruff for mentioning to Andi Dorfman that she could be a housewife. However, Soules says he’s looking for someone career-oriented, independent and successful in their own right.

Soules says that despite the farm being his business, he is open to compromise and he’s willing to do what it takes once he finds the right woman. He seems open to being somewhere outside of Arlington, Iowa, though the farm will still be an important component of his life.

Chris says that he really wants to find a soulmate, his true love, and obviously he found a way to make the filming schedule work around his family’s busy farming season. Soules says he is anxious to find that great love that you can’t live without, and fans are hopeful he found just that. Of course at this point he’s not revealing anything about whether he did find great love, though Reality Steve’s spoilers have dished out some details about how things went.

Does Chris Soules find his future wife while filming The Bachelor 2015 season? Fans hope so and they’ll get to find out when season 19 starts airing on January 5, 2015.
