Chris Baker is a Bad Place torturer who is assigned as Eleanor's soulmate in Attempt #2. His former job was in the twisting department, where he took people and "twisted them until they snapped in half."

Michael instructs him to find a reason to avoid Eleanor every time she wants to confess to him, and gives going to the gym as an example of an excuse. Chris then uses that exact excuse nine different times during the second attempt which Michael would scold him for later.
