Chris Harrison Got A $9 Million Payout To Leave “The Bachelor”

June 21, 2021 / Posted by:

Earlier this month, it was announced that rose-counting reality show host robot, Chris Harrison, was leaving The Bachelor franchise after he did a disastrous interview on Extra where he defended a contestant’s racist past. We heard that ABC stuffed eight figures in Chris’ pockets to go the hell away. Well, Variety published an in-depth article about the behind-the-scenes goings-on of Chris’ exit and I’m sad to say he only received a measly $9 million, plus contractual fees. Poor guy! How will he survive?!

Chris Harrison Is Officially Out As Host Of “The Bachelor” Franchise And Was Reportedly Paid Eight Figures To Go Away

June 8, 2021 / Posted by:

The only person getting richer than Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather this week is going to be Chris Harrison. The former host of The Bachelor series has lost his gig for good. 49-year-old Chris had been the host of the show since it debuted in 2002 but got put in a timeout recently. Chris defended a contestant on the previous season of The Bachelor, Rachael Kirkconnell, from the “woke police” after she was found to have participated in some highly racist Antebellum balls. Chris went away for some classes from a race educator but I guess that wasn’t enough. Because he’s not coming back to the show. But don’t cry for him, Bachelor Nation. It’s been reported he was paid eight figures to leave. Um, when can I get fired and then be rich enough to never have to work again as a consequence?

Chris Harrison Will Be Replaced On “Bachelor In Paradise” By David Spade And Several Other Guest Hosts

June 3, 2021 / Posted by:

As a lifelong Bachelor fan since 2002, I can tell you that longtime host Chris Harrison operates like a robot with limited romance programming. He could smile. He could pronounce the words “ladies” and “gentlemen” to small, manageable groups of reality TV contestants. He could even make respectful, inoffensive banter about room keys and fantasy suites. But earlier this year, Chris Harrison proved he wasn’t created in an underground bunker at ABC by experts in mild-mannered likeability. Chris Harrison defended a Bachelor contestant’s past racism and went on a tear about the “woke police,” which ended with Chris temporarily stepping away from the show.

Chris has since apologized, and claimed that he has plans to return as host. ABC clearly has other plans, because it was announced that Chris won’t be hosting the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise, and instead, ABC called in a revolving door of celebrity guest hosts, like David Spade. Imagine being too much of a mess to host the messy, boozy summer season spin-off of an already messy dating show? Chris Harrison, look at your life and your choices! Continue reading

“The Bachelor” Matt James Broke Up With Winner Rachael Kirkconell Over Her Racist Past

March 16, 2021 / Posted by:

The first season of The Bachelor franchise with a black male lead, 29-year-old Matt James, was a mess. The Antebellum party-past of one of the contestants, 24-year-old Rachael Kirlconnell, became a huge racial issue and when the host of the franchise, Chris Harrison, tried defending her, the backlash against him was swift and he’s taking a break from the franchise. And after all that, Matt picked Rachael during the finale last night. Then during the After The Final Rose special, Matt said that he dumped Rachael over her past racist posts. What a shitshow.

Chris Harrison Plans To Return To “The Bachelor”

March 4, 2021 / Posted by:

Chris Harrison stepped away from The Bachelor after an interview he did with Rachel Lindsay, one of the only two Black Bachelorettes in the show’s history. Chris defended a current Bachelor contestant, Rachael Kirkconnell, and her propensity toward going to Antebellum balls, posing with the confederate flag, and pushing QAnon conspiracy theories. Chris called out the “woke police” and that led to backlash, which led to Chris stepping away from the show to do some racial soul-searching. Soul searching complete, I guess!

Chris appeared on Good Morning America today telling Michael Strahan that while he has more work to do, he absolutely plans to come back to The Bachelor.

Chris Harrison Is Temporarily Stepping Away As Host Of “The Bachelor” After His Remarks About A Contestant’s Racist Past

February 15, 2021 / Posted by:

Get ready to be legitimately shocked because Chris Harrison, who has hosted The Bachelor and its spin-off shows, like The Bachelorette and Bachelor In Paradise, since 2002, has stepped away from the series because of an interview where he made some questionable remarks. While speaking with the first Black Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay, Chris dismissed one of the current contestants’ highly-racist past as really nothing and called out instead the “woke police.” Ah yes, the people calling out the racism are wrong.
