"It was clear at the end there, I was really disappointed," Soules toldUs Weekly after the show. "But you know, life goes on. We didn't make it to the end, so I'm a little disappointed."
Last night's broadcast featured a double elimination in which Robert Herjavec and his pro partner Kym Johnson also got sent home. In what turned out to be a stressful night for Soules, Bischoff was noticeably absent from the audience, where she was typically shown cheering her man on throughout the season.
But the fertility nurse had a great reason for missing out on her fiance's tough night.
"She's with family, it's actually the anniversary of her mom's death," Soules said of Bischoff, whose mother died 10 years ago from a blood clot.
"She was definitely bummed that this was the final dance, and she wasn't able to be here. But she was doing things for herself and she was with her family where she should be."
While Soules is definitely upset his time on Dancing with the Stars has come to an end, he's looking forward to getting "back to normal" and "back to work."
"That has been in the back of my mind. My family needs me back there and we're in the middle of planting season, which is one of the most important times of the year for us. I'm excited to be back there, that's something I really enjoy," Soules told Us.
"So this is a tough pill to swallow because I was committed to getting to the end of this, but it's been an unforgettable experience and thankful that I got to be a part of it but looking forward to moving on."
Soules also explained how Bischoff, a Chicago native, will be a part of this picture.
"Chicago's a lot closer than LA -- a short commute to Iowa for her and we'll definitely both be more comfortable whether it's in Iowa or Chicago, it's more home for us. We're Midwestern people, so I'm excited to have that part of my life start to happen, to start to work on our relationship," said the nineteenth-season The Bachelor star.
"The goal is to start building a life in Arlington. I think we're both looking forward to being out of the spotlight and Arlington's the best place to do that!"

Soules apparently can't wait to get back to his business at home and do what he loves to do -- farming and sleeping.
