A fourth reality show for Chris Soules

Jumping from reality show to reality show is nothing new, but in just one year, Chris Soules is on track to be on four different reality series.

Now that his everlasting romance with Whitney Bischoff and ABC have concluded, Chis Soules’ commitment to finding love on reality television is shifting to cable reality TV. The Iowa farmer is now heading to Food Network, where he’s one of the D-list cast of a celebrity edition of Worst Cooks in America. That’ll probably be a slightly different experience than the one he’s had this past year on The Bachelorette, The Bachelor, and then Dancing with the Stars.

That show is, coincidentally, one of the worst shows on Food Network, though at least by casting reality stars for this new celebrity edition, it can dispense its casting of comedian ringers.

EW reports that Rachel Ray drew the short straw this time to host along with Anne Burrell. They’ll work with a group of many familiar cable “celebrity” reality show people: Kendra Wilkinson, Dean Cain, Jaleel White, Barry Williams, Ellen Cleghorne, and Jenni “JWOWW” Farley. The show is filming now and airs this fall.

I guess then we’ll know if Chris Soules may have finally found love with reality television.
