It’s been a year since Bachelor star Chris Soules and his fiancée Whitney Bischoff called off their engagement. But he exclusively tells Life & Style that unlike most former couples from the show, there’s no bitterness between them.

“I miss her,” he said at Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino on May 28. “I just care about her. She’s a great person.”
