Is Chris Soules trading in roses for a pair of dancing shoes?!

While the season is just getting started on ABC, Chris (aka Prince Farming!) tells E! News he's definitely open to doing more reality TV after his run on The Bachelor comes to an end. Specifically Dancing With the Stars!

"At this point, why not?" Chris says. "I went through The Bachelorette and never thought I'd do that and did it and it was a great experience. Now being the Bachelor, it's been an extraordinary experience."

He continues. "I'm open to a lot of opportunities, I'd be willing to consider these sort of things. But I'm going to do what's best for me and do what's right and what I feel is right for my future."

But Chris is a little nervous about one aspect of joining DWTS, telling us, "I think I need to do some yoga because watching those people and some of the stuff they do...I'm not a very flexible guy, so I am going to need to get limbered up if that's going to happen!"

Hey, it's something he can work on with his former fellow contestant and current trainer Cody Sattler, right?!

Chris wouldn't be the first Bachelor alum to hit the ballroom as Sean Lowe and Jake Pavelka both competed, as well as former contestant Melissa Rycroft (who won the All-Stars season). (Juan Pablo Galavis reportedly wanted to be on the show, but was turned down by producers.) 

What we thought could be a possible incentive for Chris to join DWTS? Making it farther than Sean Lowe, who is the only Bachelor ahead of Chris in our ranking of the best and worst Bachelors!

But Chris isn't complaining about coming in second to Sean, saying, "I'm in pretty good company!" 


As for whether or not, he's confident he can eventually take over the number one spot, he says, "I hope everyone enjoys the season and if I am second to Sean at the end of the season I will be a happy man." 

To hear more from Chris, including his thoughts on his "Prince Farming" nickname and the one thing strangers keep coming up and saying to him, watch the rest of our interview with him above!

The Bachelor airs tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
