Chris Soules, 37, was The Bachelor in the long-running eyeroll-fest’s 19th season. You would think that would lead to a peaceful life sans the gal he chose (his engagement to winner Whitney Bischoff only lasted six months), with maybe an endorsement deal for a local lawnmower shop and a brief appearance in a The Bachelor: Where Are They Now? special somewhere down the road. Unfortunately for Chris (more so for the deceased), shit didn’t turn out that way. People reports that he was just given a two-year suspended prison sentence after pleading guilty to leaving the scene of a car accident where someone was killed. An accident that HE caused. There goes the lawnmower deal.
Listen, you may think this story is irrelevant, and normally I would agree with you. Gigi Hadid dating some douche-nozzle from The Bachelorette? I know, but hear me out. Who cares about Gigi in this story–she’s the least relevant aspect of it. If you know anything about anything about the newest season of The Bachelorette then you know that Tyler Cameron is one of the best contestants the show has ever had.

Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss’s messy divorce is settled and instead of a final rose his newly minted ex-wife, Laura, got a $10 million dollar divorce settlement and Mike got his temporary restraining order and domestic battery charges dropped.

You’ve gotta hand it to Chris Soules for taking his “Prince Farming” schtick to to new heights of absurdity. Chris was the man handing out the roses on season 19 of The Bachelor and now he’s going to be handing out $2.5 million to the family of the man he killed when he plowed into a John Deere tractor with his big ‘ole truck. Sure, I guess it could happen to anyone, but Chris is facing criminal charges in addition to the civil settlement because he failed to stick around after the accident as required by law.
Ellen Pompeo Defends Kelly Ripa’s Hatred Of “The Bachelorette” While Hannah Brown Does Damage Control
The battle of the ABC shows started with Kelly Ripa slamming The Bachelor and The Bachelorette saying it “disgusts” her because she hates seeing women fight with each other over a man. This set off a fire storm of conflict (sort of). The producer of the show Mike Fleiss checked Kelly on Twitter and so did Bachelor host Chris Harrison. Well don’t worry Kelly, because you have people on your side, too. Specifically one of the highest paid actresses on network television, Grey’s Anatomy‘s Head Bitch: Ellen Pompeo.
