ABC has chosen Chris Soules as the next star of The Bachelor, it was announced Wednesday on Good Morning America.
"I was humbled, flattered, grateful," he said during the reveal. "Coming from a small town I never expected to have this opportunity to be on either show, let alone be the lead on The Bachelor. So it's been awesome."
Soules, 32, became a fan-favorite on the most recent season of The Bachelorette and made it to the Final 3. During his fantasy suite date with Andi, she decided to let him go before the night was over. Following his exit, the Iowa farmer told us, "It's OK to [be vulnerable]. When I get the opportunity with the right person, I can do that and still survive if it doesn't work out and still do it again. This helped me learn a lot about myself and how to cope and put yourself in situations and manage it as an adult and without family and friends. I know it helped me grow."

As most people know, Netflix's successful series Orange Is the New Blackis based on the memoir of Piper Kerman's time spent in prison. But while Kerman has spoken about what's true and what the show has taken liberties with — and the "real" Alex has also spoken out in a detailed Vanity Fair piece — for the first time, the man in Kerman's life, Larry, is opening up.
In an article in the online magazine Matter titled "My Life with Piper: From Big House to Small Screen," Smith talks about the other side of the true story. From his near-perfect life essentially crashing at 29 to Kerman's incarceration, her book, the TV series and everything in between, Smith shines a light on what it's like to be that guy -- played by Jason Biggs -- who inspired a big part of Orange. Here are 10 things we learned from his story.
