Chris Soules, Whitney Bischoff Update: ‘Bachelor’ Couple Still In Love, Looking At Future Post-‘DWTS’

There have been a lot of rumors swirling about the status of Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff’s relationship. Are they still engaged? Has the Bachelor pair split? Fans will be very curious to see what comes next now that Soules has been eliminated from Dancing with the Stars. Despite all of the buzz, Chris and Whitney say that they’re still in love and very much together.

Many Bachelor fans started buzzing when Whitney Bischoff headed back to Chicago as Chris Soules continued to dance on DWTS. After Chris was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars, he told People that he’s excited to get back to his life in Iowa, and Whitney will be moving there at some point.

Whitney had been in Los Angeles to support Chris through much of his DWTS run, but he explained to Us Weekly that she headed back to Chicago recently in part because it was the 10th anniversary of her mother’s death. Soules said he had been missing her, but that he thought it was healthy for her to be doing her own thing as she needed.

Soules went on to note that “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,” with “plans” meaning wedding plans.

While some Bachelor fans may be buzzing about a break-up, Soules says that’s not the case. Rather, he says they’re acting like adults by having him focus on DWTS while he was still on the show, and Whitney focusing on her life and her job as well. Chris says they’re together and in love, and they were just making the best of the opportunity they had to let Soules do Dancing with the Stars.

During a visit to Good Morning America after their DWTS elimination, Witney Carson said that she’s actually going to be choreographing Chris and Whitney’s wedding dance when the time comes. Granted, there was similar talk regarding Peta Murgatroyd, Sean Lowe, and Catherine Giudici after their season, and as Bachelor fans know that’s not quite how things ultimately played out. However, it seems there is a lot of talk about what comes next for Soules and Bischoff

Will Chris and Whitney really build a life together in Arlington now that his run with Dancing with the Stars is over? Bachelor fans aren’t necessarily convinced at this point, but everybody will be watching to see what happens now that he’s done with DWTS. Stay tuned for more on Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff’s engagement as the two embrace regular life again and hopefully put split rumors to rest.
