One person who thinks that Chris Soules will be great as the next "Bachelor" star is Andi Dorfman. On Wednesday, August 27, right after it was announced on "Good Morning America" that Chris would be the next man to try to find his mate out of 25 women, Andi tweeted her congratulations.
Andi wrote that she's so excited for Chris and that some woman is going to be very lucky if she wins his heart. Andi's sweet message to Chris isn't surprising since she always thought very highly of him during their time together on "The Bachelorette." Andi thought he was a great guy and loved his family but ultimately decided that there wasn't enough between them to have him continue on with the competition, leading her to tearfully send him home after his hometown date.
While Andi's support is to be expected, Nick Viall's message of support is likely to strike many as coming from left field. Nick, the runner-up on Andi's season, wasn't much liked by the other men, in particular Chris. They found him condescending and thought that he wasn't there for the right reasons.
Yet Nick tweeted that he thinks that 25 women will find Chris' tractor sexy and congratulated him on being the next Bachelor. Nick even called Chris "[his] boy." Perhaps they became good friends after they were both sent home by Andi?
Nick was actually reportedly in the running for the role. In early August, Us Weekly reported that Nick was a top contender because producers knew that viewers would want to hear what he had to say after he sensationally revealed that he and Andi had sex on their overnight fantasy suite date in the "Men Tell All" special. Andi is likely very relieved that the producers passed on Nick!
Andi Dorfman and her final pick, Josh Murray, are still together in Atlanta. Andi's excitement for Chris Soules being the next "The Bachelor" star likely means that she and Josh will watch the upcoming season and tweet their thoughts on what's happening. Nick Viall, who has been tweeting his thoughts on the spin-off "Bachelor in Paradise," is likely to provide some commentary as well.
