It had been her interview that began it all and today Rachel Lindsay is allegedly amazed that Chris Harrison is currently from the “Bachelor” nation.
Based on People, Lindsay spoke Tuesday for her”Extra” colleague Billy Bush in their own show and stated, “that I was not hoping for it to occur, not following the statement.”
“I believe a couple of previous contestants coming forward and saying that they did not need him to become a part of Paradise. I believe Katie Thurston [the present Bachelorette] her really past tweet before she moved to picture her period was that Chris had to resign,” Lindsay explained. “I believe that, coupled with the meeting which occurred on this stage, possibly led to him coming back”
The show’s producer and distributor Warner Horizon and ABC Entertainment verified to Daily Reuters Tuesday at a joint announcement the longtime”Bachelor” franchise bunch was departing the displays, which he’d hosted since 2002.
“Chris Harrison is stepping aside as sponsor of The Bachelor franchise,” the announcement read. “We’re grateful for his many contributions over the previous twenty decades and wish him the best on his new journey”
Harrison declared in February he had been”stepping aside” after being interviewed by Lindsay, who’s a present”Extra” host and former star of 2017’s”The Bachelorette.”
During that interview, he defended Rachael Kirkconnell, a”Bachelor” contestant that had been allegedly photographed in an antebellum plantation-themed fraternity formal in 2018.
Those racially insensitive remarks caused a firestorm and Harrison apologized at the moment.
On Tuesday he published a farewell on his confirmed Instagram accounts, composing in the caption, “I have had a really incredible run as host of The Bachelor franchise and today I am eager to begin a new chapter”
“I am so thankful to Bachelor Nation for each the memories we have made together,” he wrote. “While my two-decade travel is wrap up, the friendships I have made will last a lifetime”
