Children of the Corn? More like Terrifying Whispery Grown Up Ladies of the Corn.
Last night, ABC took a moment during the Country Music Awards to premiere Chris Soules' first official Bachelor promo, and we're completely creeped out. Why?
It features Chris walking through a cornfield and lightly caressing the corn, while the corn whispers sweet nothings at him, and then starts fighting over which corn stalk gets to be with him.
We are serious. That's the real promo. Watch it if you don't believe us.
Hey, if this season ends up being a bust, at least it could make for a great horror movie premise?!
Since the fact that Chris is a farmer is clearly going to be a major focus this season, everyone should definitely be prepared for lots of corny jokes, combine dates, and contestants not knowing how modern farming works. We predict questions about pitchforks and chickens, and we're pretty sure it will be endlessly entertaining.
"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," Chris said of becoming the Bachelor after being dumped by Andi Dorfman on The Bachelorette last season.
Chris's season of The Bachelor premieres Monday, Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. on ABC. Not only will it be three hours long, but it will also be broadcast live, to bring the magic of television dating to a whole new level.
