Is Farmer Chris the Next 'Bachelor'?

Is Farmer Chris the Next 'Bachelor'?Now that Andi has made her choice (congrats Josh — we hope you crazy kids enjoy your three months of dating, followed by your US Weekly breakup cover story!), we're now free to forget all about them and turn our attention to the next big thing in reality TV dating: Who will be the next Bachelor?

Chris Harrison all but confirmed that it will probably be Farmer Chris, known in non-reality circles as Chris Soules of Iowa. The sweet, soft-spoken contestant was sent packing by Andi two weeks ago, but he was a favorite among Bachelorette fans for the being the most normal dude in a sea of delusional weirdos contestants.

Even Andi has given Chris her seal of approval. “I mean, look at him,” she told People. “Chris has the whole package. He is the all-American guy who is a farmer who does not look like a farmer, but he’s also successful and he’s ready for a family. He’s going to be a great husband and a great father.”

But Farmer Chris shouldn't be packing up his hoe for the Bachelor mansion quite yet. US Weekly reports that Arie Luyendyk Jr. from Emily Maynard's season is also in the running, along with Marcus Grodd (although there are multiple reports he's now engaged to Bachelor in Paradise co-star Lacy Faddoul — those crazy kids) and Marquel Martin from this season. Grumpy Cat made a surprise appearance during Monday night's After the Rose special, so clearly he's also in the running. Now that's a show we'd watch.
