2/29/2016 10:02pm EST
Next 'Bachelorette' Announcement Just Days Away: Which One Of Be
When will Chris Harrison introduce the next Bachelorette? Ben Higgins season of the Bachelor comes to a close in just two weeks and fans are excited to find out which one of his rejected ladies will hand out roses as ABC's 12th Bachelorette.

Will Caila Quinn, Amanda Stanton, or Becca Tilley get the gig or will it be one of Ben's final two ladies, Lauren B. or JoJo Stanton?

Host Chris Harrison is expected to make the big reveal on the After the Final Rose special that airs right after Ben hands out his final rose on March 14. Until then, the unconfirmed chatter will continue, but there's ...

'Bachelor' Ben Higgins Is Most Worried About This Girl Says Host Chris Harrison

12/30/2015 4:56pm EST
Chris Harrison Talks 'Bachelor' Premiere, Reveals Girl Ben Is Mo
Chris Harrison has been the host of the Bachelor since 2002 and in less than a week, he will stand with Ben Higgins in front of the Bachelor mansion as the 20th season of ABC's popular reality show gets underway.

It's been nine months since the last Bachelor, Chris Soules handed out his final rose and according to Chris Harrison, that's way too long to wait for the show to return. The rosemaster tweeted a little play on words to fans who are as anxious as he is for the new season to start on January 4.

"It's Ben too damn long since the #Bachelor was on TV!," Chris tweeted, with a link to ...

Is Chris Harrison Bragging About His Money?

12/27/2015 12:22pm EST
Chris Harrison
Chris Harrison has been the host of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and even Bachelor In Paradise. He has hosted every spin-off show from the franchise, including Bachelor Pad and every possible Bachelor wedding in the show’s history. And one can imagine he’s made quite the money bringing people together in hopes of finding love over the years. His role in this franchise has opened up many other hosting doors, and he proudly shares them on Twitter. But that doesn’t sit well with everyone.

According to a new tweet, Chris Harrison is now revealing that he doesn’t see himself as a shameless pe...

Chris Harrison Still Bonding With Emily Maynard's Ex?

12/23/2015 1:01pm EST
Chris Harrison
Chris Harrison gets to know the former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants quite a bit when they are filming the show. Chris tends to stay neutral no matter how the relationships end, so he has a large group of friends in the Bachelor family. Many expected that he had a special bond with Emily Maynard, as she was dumped by Brad after trying to make it work. He gave her a second chance at love and she got engaged to Jef Holm. Even though their relationship ended, Chris remains friends with both of them.

According to a new tweet, Chris Harrison is now hinting that he still hangs out with J...

Chris Harrison Predicts Jade & Tanner Won't Have 'Paradise' Wedding

Chris Harrison Predicts Jade & Tanner 'Won't Make It': No 'Parad
Fans who are hoping to see Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert get married on the Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 premiere next summer may be disappointed to find out that the wedding may not happen.

When Tanner proposed to Jade on the Paradise season finale earlier this month, many viewers assumed the next season would kick off with "Janner" tying the knot.However, during a recent HuffPost podcast, host Chris Harrison stated that doesn't think the couple will make it.

Don't worry — Jade and Tanner probably won't be throwing away throw away their matching "Janner Forever" robes, it's important to...

'The Bachelorette' Recap: Nick Goes Ballistic On 'After The Final Rose'

'The Bachelorette' After The Final Rose Recap: Nick Tears Into K
You saw The Bachelorette's Season 11 finale. You read our recap of that finale (presumably- if not, here you go). Now for the final hour of soothing, post-finale fluff that is After the Final Rose.

First up, it's Kaitlyn and Shawn! Look at these two. Arm in arm, all over each other. So adorable. Also, kudos to Chris Harrison for the nastiest Bachelorette burn since Amy Schumer's guest spot. Chris asks Shawn how it felt when Kaitlyn told him "well… for the second time this season," that he was the one.

Ooooooooooooooooooh. I know Chris is supposed to be loving and supportive of the whole B...

'The Bachelorette' Finale Recap: Which Guy Got Rejected Mid-Proposal?

'The Bachelorette' Finale Recap: Which Guy Gets His Heart Crushe
This is it. The Bachelorette finale the world has been waiting for. Will Shawn's looks-like-Ryan-Gosling-if-you-squint looks coast him to an easy victory? Will Nick get rejected at zero hour, again, and finally stop chasing girls on reality TV?

Considering it's Tuesday morning, you probably know the answer already, having A) watched the episode, B) read about it online, or C), stepped outside and seen at least one middle-aged woman cartwheeling down the sidewalk, shrieking, "Kaitlyn and [REDACTED]!!! Kaitlyn and [REDACTED]!!"

But let's start this recap from the beginning, so pretend like ...

'Two Bens' Picked For 'The Bachelor' Season 20?

7/26/2015 1:10pm EDT
Chris Harrison
If you think Ben Higgins is the next Bachelor, you may only be half right. Fans are anxious to find out who will be handing out roses in the upcoming season, with the big reveal expected on the Bachelorette After the Final Rose special on Monday night.

Host Chris Harrison hints that fans may be in for a big surprise, with "two Bens" rumored to be ABC's leading men in 2016.

Two Bens? That sounds like a plan that will make everyone happy if Chris is talking about casting both Ben Higgins and Ben Zorn as dual Bachelors. While the rosemaster states that a final decision has yet to be made, wh...

'The Bachelorette': 'The Men Tell All' Didn't Tell Us Much

7/21/2015 6:31am EDT
The Bachelorette
With just a week before the season finale, The Bachelorette gives us its traditional The Men Tell All episode. Will the men really tell all? Will these two hours of reality TV be fraught with controversy, thanks to this- the "most controversial season" of The Bachelorette, ever?

The answer: No!

But it was still reasonably entertaining. Let's recap.

Like any The Men Tell All, this one's rife with Bachelor cross-promotion. So we open not with the men telling all, but with an extended plug for Bachelor in Paradise. We don't need to recap a promo, do we? You could just watch this one, right ...

'The Bachelorette': Kaitlyn Dumps The One Guy Who's Not A Jerk

7/14/2015 6:32am EDT
The Bachelorette
Isn't The Bachelorette supposed to be about love? Or at least "The Right Reasons?" It doesn't seem like it anymore. Now it's like The Bachelorette is about provoking Nick and Shawn's jealousy war until one of them pops a blood vessel and strangles the other in his sleep.

Which is where we begin this week's Bachelorette- Shawn and Nick having a "man to man" talk that consists of Nick sitting quietly and Shawn hammering him with angry insults. Nick eventually gets in a barb about Shawn's "eskimo brothers" thing (he slept with a girl right after a famous country singer- also, is "eskimo broth...

'The Bachelorette': Kaitlyn's Sex Secret Finally Comes Out!

7/7/2015 6:31am EDT
The Bachelorette
Can you believe we're almost done with The Bachelorette? It's gone by so fast. It was just yesterday that limos were arriving at Bachelorette Mansion and Britt was still a relevant part of the show.

Now, Kaitlyn's whittled the group down to just three dudes, and she'll be judging their relationship mettle in the overnight f--k dates… err, fantasy suites. Same difference. We're not quite there at the start of the hour, though. We open with five men still remaining and Cupcake Chris (last seen weeping alone on a cliffside, freshly dumped) now a distant memory.

It's Ben H.'s turn for a one-o...

Andi Dorfman's Ex Won't Be Next 'Bachelor'

7/5/2015 7:55am EDT
Josh Murray
Fans who are hoping Josh Murray will be cast as the next Bachelor may need to grab a box of tissues. Although host Chris Harrison isn't ready to reveal who will hand out roses in 2016, he made it clear that it won't be Andi Dorfman's ex.

During a recent interview with E!, Harrison stated that any rumors that have been circulating about Josh becoming the Bachelor 2016 are not true. Simply put,the guy who proposed to Andi Dorfman on the Bachelorette Season 10 is "not being considered" for the role.

Harrison calls Murray "a great guy," but goes on to say that his name is not on the list of g...

'The Bachelorette': When Will Kaitlyn Reveal Her Big Sex Secret?

6/30/2015 6:31am EDT
'The Bachelorette' Recap: Will Kaitlyn Tell The Other Guys She H
Where did we last leave The Bachelorette? Oh, right. Shawn was miffed about not getting a group date rose (despite Kaitlyn cooing that he was totally the one in San Antonio), and stormed up to our Bachelorette's hotel room to confront her about it.

The confrontation? Surprisingly non-confrontational. Kaitlyn and Shawn both tiptoe around their real feelings and let their ooey gooey hormones do the talking. A bunch of mush like "I like you more than anyone" and "I'm falling in love with you." Also, ample frenching.

Shawn: Mmm… *kiss* *grope* (translation: I'M UNCOMFORTABLE OTHER MEN)


'The Bachelorette': Which Contestant Did Kaitlyn Have Sex With?

6/23/2015 8:03am EDT
The Bachelorette
Can I say something? I totally predicted that Nick would be the one to um… "plow" Kaitlyn's "field." Saw that one coming the moment he stepped onto the show.

Ok, minor gloat moment aside. Shall we begin this week's The Bachelorette?

When we last left Kaitlyn and the gang, she was being berated by Ian for being "shallow" and "surface level" and just on The Bachelorette "to make out with a bunch of dudes on TV." That may be true (let's be honest here, people), but Ian still comes off like a massive tool.

He went to Princeton, you guys. He's here for love, not fart jokes and poop jokes and ...

'The Bachelorette': TV Safe Buttcrack Blurring And Language Bleeping Included

6/2/2015 9:10am EDT
'The Bachelorette' Recap: More Sumo Wrestling Buttcrack Than You
When we last left "The Bachelorette," (just once I'd like to see an episode actually end with a rose ceremony), an alcohol-soaked Kupah had just been eliminated. He was also screaming incoherently with his face six inches from the camera guy's.

This week, Kaitlyn (also, everyone) hears Kupah's elimination-howls and heads out to defuse the situation. She does, although his yes, ma'am-ish reply is weird and kid-like. Ditto for grumbling she's ugly, I never liked her anyway as soon as Kaitlyn's back is turned.

But Kupah is ushered into his elimination limo and the night can continue. Which i...

Did Britt Nilsson Make A Love Connection Even Though She's Not 'The Bachelorette'?

5/23/2015 3:44pm EDT
Britt Nilsson and Brady Toops
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe may be going on to film an entire season of the hit ABC show, but it sounds like the real winner was Britt Nilsson, who was voted off the show after one episode, thanks to a new twist.

The 11th season of the show began with the bachelors having to choose between Kaitlyn and Britt, but one of them, Brady Toops, couldn't get Britt out of his head after it was revealed that Kaitlyn was the unanimous choice.

Toops took host Chris Harrison aside and told him that he wasn't interested in pursuing Kaitlyn on the show, and instead asked about the hotel where Britt wa...

New 'Bachelorette' Chosen, Was It Britt or Kaitlyn?

5/20/2015 10:14am EDT
'The Bachelorette' Recap: Kaitlyn Bristowe Is Crowned Bacheloret
We ended Monday's half of "The Bachelorette's" season premiere on a big dumb cliffhanger. Chris Harrison was about to reveal the next Bachelorette. But he didn't. Because cliffhangers.

The second of two "Bachelorette" premieres cuts right to the chase: who's getting that tearful limo ride back to normal human civilization - Britt or Kaitlyn?

It's actually pretty tactful. Chris approaches Britt. He informs her that her horde of potential husbands has chosen Kaitlyn, not her (smart choice, husband horde). She's upset, but she accepts her fate. Once again, an ABC intern is called to sop up t...

'Bachelor In Paradise' Season 1 Finale Recap: Two Couples Reign Supreme, One Has A Gross Hulk Fetish

9/9/2014 9:19am EDT
'Bachelor In Paradise' Season 1 Finale Recap: Two Couples Reign
The time has come for the final two hour chunk of "Bachelor in Paradise." Six couples enter. Anywhere from zero to six couples leave.

And, as promised last week by Chris Harrison, there'll be a shocking twist, which is necessary because there are no more elimination rounds and we need something to keep these two hours going.

So now, "Bachelor in Paradise," we beseech you. What's the twist? What could it be?

Harrison steps in front of the camera to deliver the shocking revelation (all caps added for shocking emphasis on our part):

"No more date cards!

No more new arrivals!

No more rose...

'Bachelor In Paradise' Recap: Jesse's Goodbye - Or, Love Amongst The Bat Guano

9/2/2014 8:57am EDT
Bachelor in Paradise
Can you believe we've only got one week left of "Bachelor in Paradise?" Take some time and allow yourself to adjust. It's tough, we know.

After next week, there's not going to be any "Bachelor"-related material until January. That long streak that began in May with "The Bachelorette" and continued through this kinda-ok-at-times Mexican spin-off, is nearly dead.

For now, let's just suck the last drops of life from its brittle, dying husk (a husk-sucking hosted by Chris Harrison, of course).

Last week in Paradise, our our lovable, Macklemore-esque Cody told his island girlfriend Michelle h...

Bachelor in Paradise
Yesterday was tough. Night sweats. Day sweats Full-body, uncontrollable itching. And all because we had to wait another day to find out if Graham actually accepted AshLee's rose (note: if you actually suffered symptoms because you had to wait a day for more "Bachelor in Paradise," please call an ambulance. And then a good psychotherapist).

But at long last, the wait is over. AshLee said those fateful words: "Graham, will you accept this rose?"

And Graham took a minute to think it over, then fled the stage at full speed. And when we pick up tonight, Graham's still fleeing. And sweating. Re...

'Bachelor in Paradise' Recap: Cody/Macklemore is a Sweetheart, AshLee is a Dangerous Nutcase

Bachelor in Paradise
Is anyone drawing up a flowchart for "Bachelor in Paradise?" Because this is a show that needs ample flowcharting. It's difficult enough that our kooky tropical dating show is a hefty two hours long, but it's near impossible to keep track of the many love triangles, love quadrangles, and love parallelograms that have cropped up among our many Paradisers.

Example: Michelle likes Robert, but Robert likes Sarah- oh, and Graham is, like, totally into Michelle, even if Graham has been going steady with AshLee this WHOLE TIME, and then Cody shows up and puts the moves on Michelle but now Kalon ...

'Bachelor In Paradise' Recap: Chris And Elise Fall For Each Other, In The Creepiest Way Possible

'Bachelor In Paradise' Recap: Chris And Elise Fall For Each Othe
Here's how you know the last episode of "Bachelor in Paradise" was the greatest thing to happen in the history of people acting foolish on reality TV: after the usual "last time on 'Bachelor in Paradise'" recap, detailing the walking barrel of pyschosis that is Elise, we get a second recap, courtesy of the remaining contestants.

Because Dylan dumping Elise- who then assumed the act of being dumped was a secret code for "I love you madly, please stalk me"- was so compelling that ABC thinks the "Bachelor in Paradise" audience will gladly watch it at least three times.

They're totally right,...

'Bachelor In Paradise' Episode 2 Recap: Love In The Face Of Over
Whenever Chris Harrison comes out at the beginning of any "Bachelor"- based television show, you know it's about to get real. He wouldn't be interrupting this carefully planned sob-and-make-out-fest unless there was a serious truth bomb that needed deploying.

But last night's bomb might actually be the greatest piece of drama that "The Bachelor/ette/Pad/in Paradise" has ever achieved. And it was entirely accidental and probably cost a guy his job.

You'll remember that last week, Michelle K was playing things weirdly coy about her relationship status, but with all the subtlety of a sledge...

'Bachelor In Paradise,' Series Premiere Recap: Like Regular Para
"The Bachelorette" is over, and those who've clung desperately to the love life of Andi Dorfman may have been pained to see her say goodbye to TV.

But never fear! That's what "Bachelor in Paradise" is for- to reunite us with past "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" loves, and also to ensure that ABC never lets a Monday slip by without two hours of something with the word "Bachelor" in it.

But what is "Bachelor in Paradise?" Who knows? The series doesn't begin with by detailing the rules of the game; instead, it plops former failed "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants on a tropical paradise...

'The Bachelorette' After The Final Rose: Was Nick A Jerk, Or Was Andi? Andi, Probably

'The Bachelorette' After The Final Rose: Was Nick A Jerk, Or Was
Like any season of "The Bachelorette," we're not over until all three hours of finale have been painfully worked through.

And hour three begins with a broken, sluggish, post-breakup Nick. It's a sad time to be a (former) reality show contestant, and "The Bachelorette" conveys Nick's sadness with roughly a jillion shots of Nick, looking forlornly across various views of scenic somethings.

Although, learning of Nick's post-dump backstory is pretty neat. Did you know he was at "The Men Tell All?" And yet, because of Andi's powerful shunning techniques, he was not able to Tell All? For once, ...

It is time: "The Bachelorette" has come to and end. It's a sad day for us at home, because no longer can we guilty pleasure-binge on Andi Dorfman and her search for TV-quality romance. But it's a happy day for Andi, as she'll finally settle down with one of the two predetermined men of her dreams. Also sad for us at home (again), because Bachelorette finales clock in at three full hours and they're mostly filler.

Oh, and don't forget the other eliminated Bacheloretteers, like Bryan, Chris or Cody. They're here too, being forced to watch the woman they once loved, making out with and being...

'The Bachelorette' Season 10, The Men Tell All Recap: TV Ultraso
In proud Bachelorette tradition, it's time to postpone the finale everyone's dying to see (although it would take almost no effort to google "Andi Dorfman" and figure out which guy she picked- the finale was taped weeks ago) for a block of pure, uncut filler.

Yes, it's "The Men Tell All," which is another of those awkward moments when Chris Harrison grinds the show to a halt to talk things through with the Bachelor or Bachelorette. Only, it's two hours long, it continually cuts to a crowd of emotion-hungry women (plus two dudes, for diversity quotas), and it ends with blooper bonus footage...

'The Bachelorette' Season 10 Episode 9 Recap: Nick and Josh Get
As "The Bachelorette" begins the march to its final rose, Andi and her triumvirate of manflesh visit the parts of the Dominican Republic not wracked by horrific poverty. As is customary when picking a single specimen from your manharem, Andi reviews each potential mate by his strengths and weaknesses.

Josh's best feature is his personality, which is an odd way of pronouncing "sports," but whatever. His dark hair sets Andi's soul afire, and his personality is playful. But Josh is the type of guy Andi always falls for, and what's the point of finding love on reality TV if you end up with a l...

'Bachelorette' Host Chris Harrison Defends Show's Decision To Include Eric Hill's Death In Latest Episode

7/8/2014 7:32pm EDT
Chris Harrison
Producers of hit ABC reality series The Bachelorette were faced with the dilemma of how they should address the tragic death of contestant Eric Hill shortly after he was cast off the show by star Andi Dorfman.

Hill died on April 23 of injuries from a paragliding accident he had three days earlier in Utah, when his parachute collapsed, and at the time there were four remaining suitors left vying for Andi's affection, and someone had to break the news to them.

"Bachelorette" host Chris Harrison explained to TV Guide's Robyn Ross how that happened, saying that after his appearance on talk sh...

Once more, "The Bachelorette" continues the longtime tradition of meeting your boyfriend's family for the first time, as he proclaims, "Hi Mom! This is the woman I met on TV who I'm now going to marry, so long as I make it through the next three elimination rounds." Ahh, true love.

Nick is first, because of course Nick is first. He and Andi travel around his hometown of Waukesha, Wisconsin and taste a beer named after these two lucky lovers. For Nick's sake, let's hope that was just a gag label and that there aren't fifty cases of "Nick and Andi Lager" sitting in his garage. Andi, meanwhil...
