Chris Soules is the Bachelor! After a bittersweet exit from Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette, the farmer from Arlington, Iowa, is searching for love once again on ABC's hit franchise.

So, picture this: It's 7 a.m., the morning after my second rose ceremony as the Bachelor, and I'm passed out. Rose ceremony nights are exhausting, and I probably only got to sleep at about 5 a.m. I'm deep in sleep, and suddenly I hear my name being called, over and over again. I finally muster the energy to open my eyes and Jimmy FREAKING Kimmel is standing there. I honestly thought I was still dreaming.

When I woke up the morning after the first rose ceremony, it all seemed like a dream. Did all of that really just happen? I couldn't stop thinking how hard this was all going to be. I remember just lying in bed stressing over how I was going to choose between all these amazing women. I know, high class problem. Still, it was really stressing me out. And while I knew I had made things even harder on myself by allowing Kimberly a second chance, I was okay with that. Kimberly seemed so sincere, and we really hadn't gotten a chance to talk that first night.

Staying down the hill from the mansion was huge for me. It felt so great knowing that all the women were just a few hundred feet away. When it was time for a date or a cocktail party, I didn't have to waste any time driving over; I just ran up the hill!

First off, I'm not a writer. I'm a farmer. So if this blog doesn't exactly sound like Hemingway, there's a reason! I don't write blogs. I farm stuff. Regardless, I'm going to give this a shot. What's the worst that could happen, right?

So I flew into L.A. a few days before the women arrived, and it was great to have that time to just wrap my head around what I was about to embark upon. I also did a couple photo shoots and tried on LOTS of clothes. Cary Fetman is the guy who I'm talking to while I'm surrounded by racks and racks of expensive suits, and not only is Cary wonderful with clothes, but he's also just a wonderful man. Cary, you magician, you made this farmer look damn good!

Stephen Fishbach was the runner-up on Survivor: Tocantins and has been blogging about Survivor strategy for PEOPLE since 2009. Follow him on Twitter @stephenfishbach.

"So I did what I had to, I made huge moves, I dug around for the idols to make sure nobody else had them, and I won challenges when I absolutely had to. Everything I did was strategic, nothing was out of malice, and I'm here – day 39 – because Rachel made that sacrifice." – Tyson Apostol, Winner of Survivor: Blood vs. Water

In a humdrum season, we actually have a great winner.

On Survivor's season finale Wednesday, Natalie Anderson plotted and finessed her way to a million dollars and the title of sole survivor.

Nashville Blog: Clare Bowen Talks about Scarlett's Emotional Journey

Nashville Blog: Clare Bowen Talks about Scarlett's Emotional Journey

Originally posted 12/04/2014 04:50PM

Every week, a member of the Nashville cast will blog about the latest episode of the hit show. This week, Australian actress Clare Bowen, who plays Scarlett O'Connor, chats about her character's journey from being a people pleaser to a more self-aware individual.

Scarlett is a very accommodating individual. She had an abusive upbringing. Her mother was a figure of tyranny. She screamed at her and caused chaos all the time. That was Scarlett's entire childhood – trying to take care of her mother who was incapacitated by grief or emotion. So Scarlett grew up trying to be quiet, trying to hide and be as unobtrusive as possible. She is terrified of people. She is frightened of being yelled at. She doesn't like being the center of attention because every time she's been the center of attention, it's been abusive. So she is a people pleaser.

She was told she had this beautiful voice and that she belonged on the stage. That's what everybody said. The majority of people say they worship celebrity, but Scarlett is not one of those people. Just because she has the talent doesn't mean she is one of those people who is clamoring to get on stage. So she was thrown into this very high level, working with Rayna at the top of the country music industry. For someone who is really shy, she really did it for the wrong reasons. She did it to make other people happy. She doesn't like letting people down. She stopped doing that, she stopped hurting herself to make other people happy.
