Bachelor Chris Soules is rumored to have broken off his engagement to Whitney Bischoff, the fertility nurse who Reality Steve predicts will win the final rose this season. With just a month to go until the season finale, there are already reports that Chris has parted ways with his final pick because he is still in love with his ex-fiancee, Sheena Schreck.
Soules, who admitted he was previously engaged during his one-on-one date with Jade last week, had a long-term relationship with Schreck that ended prior to his appearance on Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette and the current season of The Bachelor. He told Jade that he dated Sheena for seven years and then “broke things off.”
“We kinda did the long distance thing and, long story short, broke things off. And I think we’re both better off for that, even though it was hard for both of us. But it was the best we could do in a tough situation.”
If rumors are true, Soules regrets his decision to end things with the woman who was almost his wife and has reconnected with her. Celeb Dirty Laundry states that Chris is “trying hard to convince himself that he doesn’t still have deep feelings for her [Sheena]” and he “followed Sheena’s [business] page when he first joined Twitter.”
Celeb Dirty Laundry‘s information comes from an unnamed source and appears to be completely false. Sheena is listed as the owner and founder of the Iowa-based company, Stand Up Paddle Board Rentals (SUP Iowa). A quick check of her Twitter account shows that she is not following Chris Soules — and he is not following her.
However, it does appear that the folks who run ABC’s popular reality show are keeping tabs on Chris’ ex — @BachelorABC and host Chris Harrison both follow her SUP Iowa Twitter page.

Reality Steve weighed in on the rumors that Chris has broken off his engagement to Whitney and is getting back together with his ex-fiancee.
“Here’s my answer: It’s not true. Period. End of story. Chris is engaged to Whitney and nothing has changed… when you read the story, shocker, they have zero proof of anything… He was in a long distance 7 year relationship with Sheena, they were engaged, and it was broken off… So before any of you start emailing me that story today, just know it’s garbage. Chris & Whitney are still engaged.”

There is still some speculation that Chris may not have picked Whitney Bischoff as his final pick, but Reality Steve seems quite certain that’s how the whole season will play out. Tune in tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC for the latest episode of The Bachelor.
