The dreamiest farmer that ever dreamed of finding true love is about to hit your television screens. On January 5th, the next season of The Bachelor premieres, starring the All-American farmer from Iowa, Chris Soules!

The first promotional image of Chris, all dressed up and (where else?!) making you swoon from his barn door, is here - and it's pretty amazing. It describes Chris as "Traditional. Classic. All-American." -- the sweet guy that captured the hearts of America when he was on Andi Dorfman's season.

We have to say it, good guy Chris is going to be a breath of fresh air after the fiasco that was Juan Pablo's season. When it was announced on Good Morning America that he would be the next Bachelor, Chris said "I mean, coming from a small town I never really expected to have this opportunity to be on either show let alone to be the lead on The Bachelor, so it's been awesome."

We can't wait - no seriously, can January 5th be here already? - and hope that all goes well for Chris this time around. Handing out roses and stealing hearts left and right!
