He's a 6-foot, 1-inch, blue-eyed, football-loving heartthrob from Iowa.

And now he has 30 women to choose from on ABC's "The Bachelor."

Chris Soules was the stylin' farmer sent home by Andi Dorfman on ABC's "The Bachelorette." He was one of three finalists for that show. What was she thinking?

On Monday night, the 33-year-old bachelor from Arlington, Iowa, started his quest for a potential mate on the 19th season of "The Bachelor." His search began as part of a three-hour premiere.

Once engaged, he broke it off after a seven-year relationship with his fiancée. He's a self-proclaimed romantic and family man who says he has found it difficult to date being a busy and successful farmer from a small town (population 427).

He ain't no hill jack. The Iowa State University graduate runs a multi-million-dollar, family-owned agriculture enterprise started by his father, and is the youngest of four -- with three older sisters.

The successful, sensitive and sexy Soules is now looking for his dream gal. He is hoping to meet someone who is smart, confident and motivated and can drive a tractor -- or at least learn how to.
