ABC’s going to try something new with a three hour live premiere of The Bachelor on January 5, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT. Chris Soules will be looking to make a connection on the next edition of the series (he was rejected by Andi Dorfman on The Bachelorette) when the show returns for its 19th season in early 2015.
Apparently audiences haven’t tired of the reality dating series as season 18 earned the highest ratings in three years. Chris Harrison will be back as host with Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton and Alycia Rossiter executive producing.
Chris Soules Info [Courtesy of ABC]:
Chris, the 32-year-old Midwestern bachelor and self-proclaimed romantic, has been engaged once before. Heartbroken, Chris ended that seven-year relationship just months before he expected to walk down the aisle. Although his relationship with his fiancée was good, he didn’t want to settle for “good.” He wanted “great.” While the humble but enormously successful farmer from tiny Arlington, Iowa (pop. 427) has found it difficult to date, that hasn’t stopped him from having faith that one day he will find the perfect woman for him, who will be smart, motivated and confident. When he starts his own family, he yearns for a big one like his own: four to six children. His experience on The Bachelorette made him realize that love really is out there, and he is confident that he will find it this time on The Bachelor.
