At the end of the day, we had to shoot this thing. So, we just picked a day where we could get as many as we possibly could, but unfortunately schedules, vacations, was one of them, just couldn’t be changed. And we just had to pull the trigger and do this thing.”

Chris had the following to say about the special, “I just watched the whole thing last night, and I was like a 5-year-old at Christmas, I really was. I had this weird sense of pride… It’s my baby. I really love these women, and I really liked that at the end of the day, we had all these Bachelorettes together for the first time, and we’ve never done anything like it.”
