Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff are finally done with reality TV, and they are now ready to embrace their regular lives in full. There have been a lot of rumors swirling about the state of the Bachelor stars’ engagement, but a new post by Bischoff indicates that she’s excitedly heading off to see her beau now that he’s done with Dancing With the Stars.
Whitney and Chris got engaged while filming the show last fall, and fans got to watch the proposal during the March Bachelor finale. Soules jumped right into DWTS from there, but he was eliminated last week.
Fans had grown a bit concerned about Chris and Whitney’s engagement when she left Los Angeles to spend some time back in Chicago and Kentucky. Had they split? Were they about to break up? So far, they’ve said that’s not the case, and fans will be anxiously watching to see what happens now.
Chris has done some posting about how it’s now the busy season on the farm, as it’s time to plant. Soules is back in Arlington, Iowa now working on all of that, and now Whitney says she’s hitting the road to check it all out. The Bachelor couple has revealed via People that Whitney won’t be moving to Iowa immediately, but they plan to visit one another frequently as they live only about four hours apart.
On Monday, Bischoff posted a photo to Instagram showing her in the car with her puppy, with her engagement ring on her left hand. She wrote that she’s road tripping and she’s Iowa-bound, a happy post for Chris and Whitney supporters. The post quickly drew nearly 10,000 “likes” and many comments.
Many Bachelor fans are very happy for Chris and Whitney and are hopeful they can make their relationship last now away from the spotlight. However, not everybody is convinced. Some think that ABC is making Soules and Bischoff maintain the appearance of an engagement until the Bachelorette 2015 season premieres on May 18. Others just think that the relationship is faltering and it’s just a matter of time before the two split.
Will Chris and Whitney make it down the aisle? Bachelor fans seem fairly split on that front, but many remain hopeful. The truth will surely become apparent quickly now that Dancing With the Stars is over and the two throw themselves back into regular life again.
Stay tuned for updates on the Bachelor couple’s engagement as Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff move ahead and put the cameras behind them. Next up for the franchise is ABC’s The Bachelorette 2015 season starring Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe.
