Bachelor Chris Soules made his debut on Dancing With the Stars this week, and admits that he’s putting off his wedding to Whitney Bischoff because he’s hooked on being a reality TV star. Will the Iowa farmer get back to tending to his crops after DWTS, or does he have plans to do another reality show?
Soules has yet to spill the details about any upcoming Hollywood ventures, but tells Fox that doing Dancing With the Stars right after the Bachelor was “the right choice” and wedding planning is not a priority for the couple.
Instead, Chris says he and Whitney are focusing on their work, and his work does not include tending to his farm in the tiny town of Arlington, Iowa.
“We are trying to catch our breath and she is focusing back on her work and I’m focused on [“DWTS”] and we’re going to enjoy this ride… we get to do some pretty cool things.”
Weeks before the Bachelor finale aired, blogger Reality Steve stated that he didn’t think Chris and Whitney would ever get married. After seeing the couple on their post-Bachelor media tour, it’s hard not to agree with Steve’s prediction. Some fans on Twitter pointed out that the newly engaged couple didn’t even hold hands their interview on Good Morning America, perhaps a sign that the relationship is already be fading.

According to Life & Style, Whitney quickly became aware that getting married and starting a family with Chris just wasn’t going to happen once he signed a contract to be on Dancing With the Stars. The magazine’s insider states that Chris is “caught up in the hoopla of Hollywood” and Whitney feels “hurt and misled.”
Whitney appeared in the audience to watch Chris dance on the DWTS season premiere on Monday night, but the focus was on Prince Farming and his partner, Witney Carson. There was no lack of “touchy feely” between the dance partners as Chris’ other Whitney looked on.
Instead of heading over to give his fiancée a passionate kiss after his performance, Chris tells FOX411 that it “felt good to know Whitney was there” — after his dance, he gave her “a hug.”
The engagement-to-marriage track record for all 19 seasons of the Bachelor is not a good one, with only Sean Lowe making it to the altar with his final pick, Catherine Giudici. Is it possible that Chris and Whitney will become married couple number two, or do you think they’ll call off their engagement once the Hollywood excitement wears off?
