Another ‘Bachelor’ couple bites the dust. Chris Soules and fiancée Whitney Bischoff have split just two months after the end of ‘The Bachelor.’
Chris Soules, 33, and Whitney Bischoff, 29, have called off their wedding, Mike Fleiss, the creator of The Bachelor tweeted on May 28. The couple, who met and fell in love on season 19 of The Bachelor, just recently celebrated the six months of their engagement! So, what went wrong?
“Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement,” the couple said a statement. “They part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another and will continue to be supportive friends. They wish to thank everyone who has supported them through this journey.”
Mike Fleiss broke the news on Twitter writing, “Sad news to report: @souleschris and @whitbisch are no longer engaged…”
On May 11, Whitney posted that she was on a drive to Iowa. Then just six days ago on May 22, Chris posted a photo with Whitney and some friends at a Dancing with the Stars after party. So, it must have been recent!
Chris recently just finished competing on Dancing, and usually Whitney was in the audience cheering on her man. She was not there for his last dance on May 5 due to the anniversary of the mother’s death. She was back there in the audience on May 19 to cheer him on.
Before heading on DWTS, former Bachelor Sean Lowe told HollywoodLife.com his advice for Chris: “Spend as much time with your new fiancee as possible. Being on Dancing with the Stars is exciting and all, but the twelve hour dance rehearsals can place strain on the new relationship.” Maybe Chris should give The Bachelor another try, and then opt out of doing DWTS again.
Are you shocked that they split, HollywoodLifers?
