The Bachelor season 19 premieres tonight on ABC at 8 pm. Fan favorite, Chris Soules, the gentle Iowa farmer from Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette, will be searching for a bride to take back to his homestead.
Andi was attracted to him, but ultimately couldn’t imagine herself doing the Green Acres thing. However, there isn’t a shortage of women who are willing to follow the charming Mr. Soules to the simple life! In fact, it’s the biggest cast ever. THIRTY WOMEN will be “fighting to land Prince Farming” (I didn’t make that up!).
Shnugs will be live blogging all of the meltdowns, trainwrecks, and usual Bachelor shenanigans all season. Make sure to join her!
