Want to win Chris Soules’ heart on Season 19 of “The Bachelor”? Well, pay close attention. During a press call with reporters on Thursday, the 34-year-old star of the ABC reality show revealed the qualities of his dream girl … and his biggest dating turn off.
“You know, I had this question asked a lot going into this process as they were trying to cast the girls for the show,” Chris told the International Business Times. “And it’s something that I began putting a lot of thought into and I think it kind of oddly enough came down to someone who’s similar to probably my sisters and my mom in a lot of ways, personality wise.”
Viewers who watched Chris Soules try to win Andi Dorfman’s heart on the 2015 season of “The Bachelorette” will know exactly what he’s talking about. Chris had the opportunity to introduce Andi to his family during hometown dates over the summer. When he brought Andi to the farm in Arlington, Iowa, fans saw that his mother and sisters immediately opened up their arms to his new girlfriend. They told embarrassing stories about Chris and played games, immediately making Andi feel welcome and like part of the family.
“At the end of the day my dream girl is someone who I feel as my best friend, someone who I can be a partner with in my life, and raise a family with, and that you know, I feel like make me better and makes me want to be better,” Chris continued. “Someone that’s equipped to get through the good and bad times with you know throughout life.”
Chris’ journey to find that woman will begin on Jan. 5 when 30 contestants arrive at “The Bachelor” mansion. Each gal will be fighting for Chris’ heart, but they have to be mindful of one thing: chewing with their mouth open!
“My probably single biggest pet peeve is when people eat with their mouth open,” Chris playfully revealed of his dating turn offs.
However he did divulge to In Touch Weekly that he does have a serious deal breaker.
“I guess I always go back to kind of thinking if I find my soul mate and the person I’m meant to be with, I’m willing to put up with a lot of things,” Chris added. “But I think the biggest thing for me is obviously I want to get married and I want to have kids. If I’m meeting somebody who I feel like is my soul mate and they don’t want those two things, those are pretty much deal breakers for me … there’s some small things I can get passed but that’s one that I just can’t.”
Will all the 2015 “Bachelor” contestants feel the same way as Chris? Fans will have to tune in to find out. Season 19 of “The Bachelor” with Chris Soules will premiere on ABC on Jan. 5.
