It looks like Chris Soules’ farming duties will have to take a back seat now that the former Bachelor star has already signed up for his next TV gig.  The 33-year-old reality star has joined the cast of Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition on Food Network. 

Meet the Cast of Bachelor in Paradise Season 2>>>

According to Entertainment Weekly, which first reported the casting news, production for the reality competition show has already started.  Worst Cooks in America puts a group of “kitchen-challenged celebrities” through culinary boot camp. Ultimately, one celebrity will be awarded the prize of $50,000 for his/her charity. The program is hosted by Anne Burrell and Rachael Ray.

Dean Cain, Ellen Cleghorne, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Jaleel White, Barry Williams and Kendra Wilkinson will be joining Soules on Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition, which premieres this fall.

The Bachelor Couple Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff Break Up>>>

Soules’ cooking TV gig comes on the heels of his break up with fiancee Whitney Bischoff. The couple ended their engagement just two months after The Bachelor finale aired and shortly after Soules’ participation on season 20 of Dancing with the Stars.

“Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement,” a rep said in 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.”  

Soules’ decision to remain on TV was a little bit unexpected since he previously claimed that he’s eager to go back to Arlington, Iowa and leave the limelight.  

“We’ve got to wrap up planting season so that’s what I’m going to be doing the next couple of weeks – planting corn.” he told People after his DWTS elimination.  

“All this. This is not real life. L.A. isn’t real life for me,” he also previously told Us Weekly.

On the other hand, this already marks Soules’ fourth reality series following Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette so this should not come as a surprise anymore.
