Bachelor Chris Soules will hand out his final rose on March 9, with spoilers indicating that he will propose to fertility nurse Whitney Bischoff. Reality Steve reveals that while Chris and Whitney did get engaged during the final rose ceremony, chances are that they probably won’t get married.
Whitney currently lives in Chicago, about four hours from Chris’ tiny town of Arlington, Iowa. Reality Steve recently responded to a reader who wondered if the couple would “do the long-distance thing” or if Whitney is moving to Iowa to begin her life-after-reality-TV with her new man.

Although Steve is 100 percent certain that Chris will pick Whitney and put a ring on her finger, he’s not so sure that they will make it to the altar.
“My guess is they are doing the long distance thing until they decide if they actually do want to get married, which I don’t think will happen.”
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Whitney recently left her job as a fertility nurse in Chicago (population 2.7 million) and is planning to move to Arlington (population 416). However, Chris may not even be back in Arlington to greet her — it looks like he may have signed a contract with ABC to appear on Dancing with the Stars Season 20.
With frontrunner Britt Nilsson now off the show, it’s not far-fetched to think that Whitney is the best choice for Chris, but do they have enough of a connection to go the distance?
WetPaint states that Chris’ will head to Bali on Monday night (February 23) to test out the Fantasy Suite with his final three — Whitney, Kaitlyn, and Becca. The overnight dates should be quite revealing, especially with ABC’s most recent preview showing Whitney second-guessing herself about leaving the big city for a Arlington, where the population has been declining since the last U.S. Census.
“Would it be something that I would honestly look on a map and be like, ‘I wanna be here, with 400 people,’? Probably not. In terms of my career, I’ll be honest with you. I’ve worked so hard to get where I am.”
Whitney will finally get a chance to see Arlington when she heads back to Iowa for the final rose ceremony. Chris reportedly sends Kaitlyn home after the overnights and takes his two final picks, Whitney and Becca back to Iowa to meet his parents and give out his final rose. If Reality Steve‘s spoilers are true, Whitney likes Arlington enough to accept Chris’ proposal.
During the live After the Final Rose special that airs after the season finale, fans will find out what their plans are for the future. The show doesn’t have a good track record when it comes to couples getting married after the season ends, but perhaps Whitney and Chris will figure out a way to make that happen.
Do you think Whitney will marry Chris, or will the small-time life be too much of a lifestyle change for her?
