Fans watched Iowa farmer Soules — affectionately known as “Prince Farming” — propose to Bischoff in the May 2015 season finale of The Bachelor. Their romance was short-lived and they announced their split two months after he proposed on national television.

However, they’ve remained good friends. While Soules has yet to address Bischoff’s engagement, he’s currently preoccupied at the Republican National Convention, which will be followed by the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. The former Bachelor took to Twitter numerous times this past week to share posts about his current work.
