The news was confirmed by a joint statement announcing their amicable break up issued from both Soules and Bischoff. Only two months ago the finale of the reality series The Bachelor aired where the 33 years old Soules asked the 29 years old Bischoff to marry him. Apparently the sparks shown on the TV show sizzled out between the farmer Soules and the fertility nurse Bischoff within six months after filming the show The Bachelor.
According to the statement announcing their break up, Soules and Bischoff have mutually decided to end their engagement and have parted with respect from each other and will keep on admiring one another. The couple will continue to be supportive friends and wish to thank everyone who supported them throughout their journey.
"Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement," the couple tells E! News in a statement. "They part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another and will continue to be supportive friends. They wish to thank everyone who has supported them through this journey."
Chris Harrison the host of The Bachelor expressed his regret after hearing the news of the couple’s break up and stated he is truly sorry about the ending of Soules and Bischoff’s engagement. However Harrison considers them both as friends and will continue to do anything he can to support his friends through an obviously tough time.
