Damnnn ... "The Bachelor" is ripped!

Former "Bachelor Pad" contestant Michelle Money took to Instagram on Monday to share a shirtless pic of Chris Soules -- and we're so happy she did!

In the photo, the hunky reality star is putting his rock-hard abs and bulging biceps on display as he poses for a sweaty snapshot in a pair of workout shorts.

The 33-year-old farmer started his quest to find love last night on the season premiere of the ABC reality show.



On Tuesday's Access Hollywood Live – while doing the interview shirtless in a hot tub! – Chris revealed that sparks flew for him and one girl in particular.

"Are you in love right now?" host Billy Bush asked Chris. "I am. I am in love in life, yes," he said with a smile.

Since wrapping the show, Soules and his mystery woman have had to keep their romance under wraps. 

"Being [from a small town] lends itself to some advantages. We have to hide out, [but] we can sneak around a little," the Iowa native explained. "It is difficult and it's going to be a long process to go through, but we knew what we signed up for. We can make it work."
