Chris Soules Splits from Fiancee – Another couple from ABC’s “The Bachelor” has broken up. Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff have split two months after the finale of the reality dating show where the couple got engaged.
At the time, the 33-year-old Soules, a farmer from Arlington, Iowa, was gearing up to immediately head to Los Angeles to compete on “Dancing With the Stars.”
He and the 29-year-old Bischoff, a Chicago fertility nurse, released a statement saying they’ve “amicably decided to end their relationship” and “part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another.”
“The Bachelor” host Chris Harrison said that seeking limelight after the show, such as by participating in “Dancing with the Stars” as Soules did may not always work out. Rumors about their split broke when Whitney stopped appearing in the audience of “Dancing with the Stars.”
The decision to participate in the dance show didn’t affect the relationship of ex-bachelor Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici, who are happily married.
