Despite being eliminated from The Bachelor on Monday night’s episode, esthetician Juelia Kinney insists she has no hard feelings against the show’s hunky star, Chris Soules.

“We both were fond of each other, but we just didn’t have that chemistry,” Kinney says.

While Soules s lips may not have been completely in sync with Kinney s, “Prince Farming” has proved that he is no rookie when it comes to planting – kisses, that is.

“Chris is a man and he is trying to get to know all of these women and I don’t really think it’s a bad thing for him to kiss somebody if he’s feeling a connection with them,” Kinney tells PEOPLE about the Bachelor’s tendencies to get a little frisky.

She adds, “He’s not planning on keeping all 30 women, so whatever he needs to do to get to know people I think is fine.”

Kinney, who shared with viewers her emotional story about her husband’s suicide, believes Soules will find “the one.”

“I told him when I left that I didn’t know how he was going to make this decision because there are honestly so many amazing girls this year,” says Kinney. “I really don’t know how he’s going to choose.”
