Chris Harrison has supposedly lost another gig in the aftermath of his scandal. The star, 49, won’t be returning to his hosting duties on the show “Bachelor in Paradise,” according to various reports. He had recently moved to one side from his hosting duties for “The Bachelorette” in the wake of defending a contestant that went to an Antebellum-themed party, however, his future with the franchise’s different entries was indistinct.
Chris Harrison will not be seen in ‘Bachelor in Paradise’
Insiders disclosed to Variety that the show will be hosted by a cadre of celebrity comedians including “Saturday Night Live” alum David Spade. Names of different comedians have been thrown around, however, Spade’s deal is the one in particular that has shut, according to the power source. Also, the show won’t be hosted by alums like the upcoming season of “The Bachelorette,” which will see Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe take the rules. A source disclosed to Page Six that Spade was drawn closer in light of the fact that “the producers need to place some fun in the show. They think it’s gotten excessively genuine.”
Fox News has connected with reps for “Bachelor in Paradise,” Harrison and Spade. Inconvenience started for Harrison back in Feb. at the point when he tended to reemerge photographs of “Bachelor” contestant Rachael Kirkconnell attending the pre-annulment-themed party. In an interview with former “Bachelorette” Rachel Lindsay, who is a Black lady, he went to Kirkconnell’s defense.
“We as a whole need to have a little grace, a little understanding, a little sympathy,” he said at that point. “Since I have seen some stuff online — this judge, jury, executioner thing — where individuals are simply tearing this present young lady’s life separated and diving into, similar to, her parents, her parents’ voting record,” he added, “It’s unimaginably alarming to watch this. I haven’t heard Rachael talk on this yet. What’s more, until I really hear this lady get an opportunity to talk, who am I to say any of this?” Harrison later apologized for his comments. Regardless of whether he will get back to “The Bachelor” remains hazy.
