Chris Harrison gone from Bachelor Nation but not forgotten
It’s been five months since Chris Harrison quit the Bachelor franchise. But fans are still begging for his return, especially with Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe hosting The Bachelorette. In some fans’ opinions, the co-hosts don’t compare to Harrison.
Although some fans refuse to move on, both Chris Harrison and the franchise are. ABC announced in September that former Bachelor lead Jesse Palmer will take over hosting duties, starting with a new season of The Bachelor in January 2022.
As for Harrison, he is living his best life away from the franchise. He recently proposed to long-time girlfriend Lauren Zima. In fact, the Entertainment Tonight host has a special connection of her own to Ben Higgins.
