It’s the most unshocking rose ceremony yet!

The Bachelor’s Chris Soules, a.k.a. Prince Farming—who went on to compete on Dancing with the Stars—has decided to call it quits with Whitney Bischoff.

His rep released this statement today: “Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules 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.”

Not long after the show’s March finale, when Soules gave Bischoff a 4-carat Neil Lane rock, rumors began to circulate that their made-for-tv romance was not as touchy-feely as it seemed. In the finale, it seemed clear that Soules’ preference was for another contestant, Becca Tilley.

But Soules and Bischoff gave it the ‘ol college try; she even flew back and forth from her home in Chicago to watch Prince Farming perform on DWTS. And earlier this month, Bischoff posted a message on Instagram saying, “It’s not work for us. It’s natural. We both want the same thing, and it feels so right. It feels so perfect. And that’s what I want for the rest of my life. I love you.”
