season 19 star Chris Soules is still single and ready to mingle but will he be willing to look for love in Bachelor in Paradise
? That's a question even the farmer from Iowa is uncertain about. Though the reality star admits that he has already been invited to join the fourth season of the summer reality dating show, he's reluctant to head to Paradise
mainly because of his past with the franchise.
"I've already been asked, and I don't know what to do," Soules told Entertainment Tonight
. "I've gotten chubby. That's my main concern. Those guys have abs and sh*t!"
"It's probably the longest I've ever been single since I was with my first fiancee," Soules said of his love life status. "I'ts been really hard to actually date and have a consistent, good dating life since the show. It's been weird. Really weird."
Though Soules knows he "would have a ton of fun" in Paradise, he remains doubtful about finding love again on reality TV. Since becoming the Bachelor, Soules hasn't had the best of luck when it comes to dating. To make matters worse, he's living "in the middle of nowhere."
"You wonder about [if a woman is just after fame]," he continued. "[It's] hard to even understand or know what their true intentions are."
As for future Bachelor stars, Soules cautions that they should know themselves first before signing up for the show.
"Go on it because you want to meet somebody at least. Have the right intentions," he advised. "Don't go on it just because you want to be famous, because 1, people will see that, and they'll call you out on it without you knowing."
"The producers know you better than you know yourself when you go on the show. If they see you just wanting to use the show for an avenue to make money, that's not what they want. If you go on there, they're going to exploit that," he explained. "I think that's why it worked out well for me. I did it for the right reasons and was true about that the entire time, and that's why I have no regrets. I could care less. I could go back to zero social media followers and be just as happy."
