Throughout the season, Andi Dorfman has a secret admirer and that secret admirer turns out to be Soules.

Chris Soules is from Arlington, Iowa and graduated Iowa St. University, growing up in a farming lifestyle. He currently works for Summit Farms and previously worked for Hertz Farm Management Inc., so it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about farm life. Hertz Farm Management wrote an article featuring Soules and gave an in-depth run-down of his farm background:
He grew up on a grain farm in northeast Iowa near Strawberry Point. While attending Iowa State University, Soules worked with a major seed company. During his college career, he was a member of the Farm Op Club, the Farm Bureau Club and the Agronomy Club. He graduated with degrees in Agricultural Studies and Agronomy.

According to Reality Steve, he owns a bunch of acres in Iowa and he’s quite successful:
Yeah, I know nothing about what this guy does but he’s loaded and owns a ton of land. Score Andi!
4. Chris Soules Makes It Down to the Final Four
Though Soules doesn’t seem to get more than a single one-on-one date with Andi Dorfman, but he does get a group date rose. And, he gets a hometown date, which means he definitely gets down to the final four … possibly further.
In addition to making it very far in the competition, Soules is also rumored to be the next Bachelor star, which means he does not win the heart of Andi Dorfman.
5. Soules Has Worked In Real Estate
Though his career has revolved around farming, Soules has also had his hand in real estate sales. Under Hertz Farm Management, Soules worked as a professional Farm Manager and licensed Iowa real estate salesperson.
