The Bachelor Season 19 hasn't even started yet, but Chris Soules is already declaring that he has found love.

In an exclusive interview with People, the farmer from Iowa shared, "I don't think I could get through that again, [but] I'm extremely happy with the outcome. I'm happy to say I'm in love. That's pretty crazy!"

Most of the time, bachelor and bachelorettes play coy about the outcome of their season in order to up the drama, but Soules isn't holding back in sharing his happiness. We can't help but wonder about the lucky lady who received the final rose.

Based on their bios, here are our top picks for Soules this season.

1. Becca

The Bachelor Season 19 contestants

Becca seems to be really close to her family, which is something she and Chris can connect on. She's from Louisiana and has made a living for herself as a chiropractic assistant. It's good that she comes from a small town, but also has the experience of a bigger city, because it will give her a more worldly opinion of where she wants to spend the rest of her life and if a farm with Chris is the right place for her to settle down.

2. Jade

The Bachelor Season 19 contestants

Like Chris, Jade has her own business. She counts her greatest achievement as becoming her own boss as a cosmetics developer. We think she and Chris will connect because of their work ethic, but they will also have intelligence in common, which will make for great conversation. Jade says if she could be any fictional character, she'd be Jane Eyre because, "She's admirable, a heroine that relies on herself to get back on her feet. She's complex and passionate."

3. Jillian

The Bachelor Season 19 contestants

Jillian just seems like a cool, easygoing gal. Her bio makes us want to be friends with her because of clever and funny statements like, "I let Mike Tyson feel my bicep and I let him dangerously close to my ear... but I still have both." Now that's a story we'd like to hear. If we're intrigued, we have a feeling Chris will be, too.

4. Whitney

The Bachelor Season 19 Whitney

Whitney describes herself as an outgoing girl who's looking for a guy who's a bit on the shy side and likes being pursued. Hmm, we think that sounds a lot like Chris... Whitney describes herself as a hopeless romantic whose biggest fear is never finding love or getting to have a family. We think she and Chris will pair nicely with personalities that complement one another.

Of course, we didn't want to ruin the Bachelor bracket fun by revealing who Reality Steve says will win before the show even starts. But if you really want to read his predictions, he has them posted online. Keep in mind, though, Reality Steve could be wrong.

The Bachelor Season 19 premieres Jan. 5 on ABC. You can read about all The Bachelor contestants on ABC's website.
