  • ABC has chosenáChris Soulesáas the next star ofáThe Bachelor, it was announcedáWednesdayáonáGood Morning America.
    "I was humbled, flattered, grateful," he said during the reveal. "Coming from a small town, I never expected to have this opportunity to be on either show, let alone be the lead on The Bachelor. So, it's been awesome."
    Soules, 32, became a fan-favorite on the most recent season ofáThe Bacheloretteáand made it to the Final 3. During his fantasy suite date witháAndi,áshe decided to let him go before the night was over. Following his exit, the Iowa farmer told us, "It's OK to [be vulnerable]. When I get the opportunity with the right person, I can do that and still survive if it doesn't work out and still do it again. This helped me learn a lot about myself and how to cope and put yourself in situations and manage it as an adult and without family and friends. I know it helped me grow."
