While they may have told ET they'd beat the odds, Chris Soules, the farmer from Iowa, and his fiancée Whitney Bischoff have called off their engagement.
Whitney, 29, and Chris, 33, released a joint statement on Thursday saying they "have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement. 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."
"Sad news to report: [Chris] and [Whitney] are no longer engaged…," Bachelor creator and executive producer Mike Fleiss also tweeted.
ET spoke to Chris and Whitney after they first got engaged at the end of season 19 of The Bachelor, and Whitney spoke about the fact that only six couples are still together out of the 28 seasons of the two Bachelor series.
"I think that it is important to not focus on that and to focus on us as a couple," she said.
Chris said that he was confident that his relationship with Whitney would stand the test of time. "We didn't go on this show for anything but for finding someone and our number one focus now is to continue that relationship that we developed on the show," he said. "I wouldn't have gone on if I would have looked at the past."
The couple was engaged for just over 6 months. See them talk about their engagement in the video below.
