Is Bachelor Chris Soules really a millionaire? Rumors that some of Chris’ ladies are more interested in his wallet than a lifetime of love are creating a buzz online, with some fans questioning who is there for money instead of finding their Soule-mate.
There are always a few contestants who come on The Bachelor for the wrong reasons and this season will be no different. It’s likely that a few of Chris’ 30 ladies are there for potential fame or to snag a successful guy just for the financial perks — or for the free cocktails. Unfortunately for those who didn’t come on the show for the right reasons, Chris isn’t looking for gold diggers, actresses, or a woman who isn’t looking for love, family, and farm live.

Celebrity Net Worth states that Chris Soules is worth $1.5 million. However, the Bachelor won’t confirm that, instead telling Gossip Girl that his bank balance is “personal” and shouldn’t be a factor in his quest to find a wife.
“I’m successful…I don’t know that my net worth is that important. But I do feel I have been successful, and I worked really hard to get to where I’m at.”
Soules made it clear from the get-go that he’s not interested in a woman who is looking for fame or a wanna-be actress. He spoke about his concerns on The Juliet Show podcast, noting that the Bachelor hasn’t always been known to produce contestants who are seriously looking for love.
“What I was really worried about, I think, was the type of women that were gonna come on the show — if they’d be able to get 25 or not, or more seriously, are they there to be actresses? Are they the type of personalities I really want in a wife? I’m not looking for someone who wants to be an actress. I’m looking for a life partner, a person I wanna marry and that’s got the right type of attitude about life that’s serious about raising a family. This show isn’t always conducive [to that].”
Chris isn’t interested in anyone who wants to use show to further their acting career and he won’t reveal his net worth, but there is something he is happy to talk about — his desire to find love, get married and start a family.
Apparently he was successful in finding the right woman on ABC’s popular reality show, telling InTouch that he’s “extremely excited” about the woman he chose and is ready to settle down and start a family.
“My No. 1 priority coming into this was to find a soulmate — somebody I could see myself spending the rest of my life with…[and] it worked for me… I’m extremely excited about the person that ‘won,’ if you want to call it that. I want to get married and have kids.”
