Andi Dorfman Chris Soules

While there are many perks that go along with signing up to be on a reality TV show (you know, the whole fame bit) -- there's definitely a downside too. One of Andi Dorfman's suitors is learning that the hard way this week.

Before I go any further, I'd like to apologize in advance for being a total buzz kill -- because what you're about to hear about one of the front runners on the show might change your opinion of him forever.

According to RadarOnline, Chris Soules has a history of alcohol-related arrests -- and even wound up in jail at one point.

I know ... total shocker.

I mean, out of all of Andi's remaining dudes, I would've pegged Nick Viall for the boozer ... not the sweet, hunky farmer from Iowa!

But apparently life can get a bit boring in the cornfields, because Chris allegedly has a whole host of charges on his rap sheet, including underage drinking, speeding, and drunk driving.

And while he appears to have cleaned up his act and hasn't been in trouble with the law for a number of years, this should probably serve as a bit of a red flag for Andi if he's the guy she winds up picking in the end.

Everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt, as we all made stupid decisions in our younger days. But the fact that Andi is (or should I say was?) an attorney might not exactly mesh well with a man who has kind of a shady past, especially since she seems to pride herself on being true to who she is.

Man. Chris is one of those guys who shows up on The Bachelorette and makes you go, "Why in the hell is he still single?!?"

And I guess now we know the answer, as it seems he has a hidden bad boy streak he isn't willing to show on camera.

Damn. How's that old saying go? When something seems too good to be true, it's because it probably is? (See? Told you this was a serious buzz kill.)

Are you surprised that Chris has a shady past?
