The rumors that Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff have broken up just weeks after getting engaged on The Bachelor seem to be just that: rumors. After Chris’ elimination from Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday night, Whitney posted a tweet in which she declared her love and admiration for Chris. Chris was clearly appreciative of the tweet, since he retweeted the tweet.
On the double elimination show, upon hearing that he and pro partner Witney Carson weren’t moving on in the competition, Chris teared up. He called being on the show an “incredible” and “life-changing” experience that he was thankful to be a part of.
Chris tweeted a message of thanks to his supporters. The accompanying photo shows him with Riker Lynch and Robert Herjavec. While Riker is moving on with his pro partner Allison Holker, Robert and his pro partner, Kym Johnson, were also eliminated.
Whitney wasn’t in the audience for the past two Mondays. Her absence, coupled with her move back to Chicago, prompted rumors that her relationship with Chris was over. In an interview with Us Weekly after his performance for Monday night’s episode, Chris explained why Whitney was away.
“I miss her. But I think it’s healthy for her to be away — [tonight] she’s with family, it’s actually the anniversary of her mom’s death. She’s my number one fan. So I know she’s there for me and when all of this is over it’ll be nice to just be together… All this, this is not real life. L.A. isn’t real life for me. Arlington is and Chicago — that’s real life and we want to take that step and then we’ll make those plans.”
Chris also denied the split rumors.
“We’re together and we’re in love and we’re handling this like two adults. She’s got a life too and she’s got a job, and she’s got a career and she’s doing that. She’s got to do what makes her happy and I’m focused on [Dancing With the Stars] and having a great time and she’s happy for me. We’re making the best of a really cool situation that we’re both a part of that’s not going to last much longer … We’re just normal people living a kind of abnormal life for a couple more weeks.”
Perhaps now that Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff have the time to have a normal life together, they’ll be watching Season 11 of The Bachelorette, starring Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson, both of whom competed with Whitney for Chris on The Bachelor, when it premieres in two weeks? As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the show’s host, Chris Harrison, recently shared a funny photo of him, Kaitlyn and Britt, taken while filming the season.
