Iowa farmer Chris Soules started “The Bachelor” with 30 women fighting for his heart. Now Season 19 of the ABC reality show is down to the final three contestants … and things are about to heat up in the fantasy suite. So, who will potentially be spending the night with the 33-year-old heartthrob? We’ve got all the scoop on the top 3 ladies – Becca, Kaitlyn and Whitney.
Becca is a 25-year-old chiropractic assistant from San Diego, California. The contestant has definitely been a “sleeper” in the competition. While Chris seemed to kiss every girl in the house within the first two episodes, Becca made him wait until their first one-on-one date in episode 6.
Although a bit more reserved than the other girls, Chris was curious to see his relationship with Becca evolve. However, he became a little worried during the hometown dates when Becca’s family members revealed that she’s not an “intimate person” and uncomfortable with PDA. After rethinking the situation, Chris told the cameras that it would be great to be “the guy that Becca was waiting for.” Fans of “The Bachelor” will see if Chris still feels that way when he discovers that Becca is a virgin during the fantasy suite date.
Kaitlyn had Chris’ attention from the start thanks to her humor. The 29-year-old dance instructor from Vancouver became a fan favorite with her jokes, fun attitude and carefree ways. Unfortunately not everyone in the house appreciated some of her antics. Britt ended up confronting Chris about Kaitlyn when she found out that Kaitlyn received the group date rose after taking off her bikini bottoms and jumping in the lake while on a camping trip.
Despite that little hiccup, Kaitlyn and Chris did share some great experiences – like a date to Costco and dinner with late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. Their relationship continued to grow during hometown dates when Kaitlyn surprised Chris with a billboard that read “Kaitlyn <3 Chris.”
Whitney is a 29-year-old fertility nurse from Chicago, Illinois. Throughout the season she’s expressed her desire to get married and start a family, something that Chris is also looking for. Although Whitney didn’t score a date in one of the first few weeks, she took the time to bond with Chris by pulling him aside before the episode 2 rose ceremony. She whipped out a bottle of the bachelor’s favorite whiskey and the pair got to know each other a little better. Whitney’s alone time worked because she landed a one-on-one date in episode 3. The duo crashed a wedding where they pretended to be an engaged couple.
The bachelorette has managed to stay out of trouble this season, going out of her way to be nice to everyone – including eliminated contestant Jordan who tried to return. Her behavior is something that Chris has noticed and appreciated. He seems to be smitten with her … but Whitney’s protective older sister refused to give her blessing on their relationship during hometown dates. Whitney’s sister told Chris to call her when he’s certain that Whitney is “the one.”
“The Bachelor” will continue with the highly anticipated fantasy suites on Monday, Feb. 23. Who do you think will win Chris’ heart? Take the poll and tweet your thoughts to @AmandaTVScoop.
