Our "Bachelor" prayers have been answered.

Fan favorite Chris Soules will be the next Bachelor, E! confirmed on Tuesday. The Iowa-bred farmer, who won over viewers as he attempted to woo Bachelorette Andi Dorfman on Season 10 of the hit franchise, is more than fit to be handing out the roses this season.
