‘The Bachelor’ Host Chris Harrison Opens Up About His Own Dating Life (VIDEO)
The Bachelor host Chris Harrison has presided over the rise and fall of countless relationships across three separate franchise shows (four, if you count The Bachelor Pad). But what about his own love life? Well, Harrison is finally opening up to talk about his dating life, at the moment.
In an interview with PEOPLE Now, Harrison declared, “I truly couldn’t be happier in my life right now.”
With that said, Harrison admits that his career takes a bit of a toll on any potential love life, as it would for just about any 45-year-old who works and travels as often as Chris Harrison.
“My house is where I keep my clothes and that probably needs to stop at some point,” Harrison said. “I literally fly by and see my clothes. This is true and this is sad … I’ll have three suitcases on my floor, and I come in and I drop one and pack the other one.”
Harrison would go on to open up about why his friends are so important to him, as well as some of his fears for the future. It’s interesting stuff. You can watch the interview with PEOPLE Now by checking out the video below:
I kind of wish the interviewer had asked if Harrison would ever agree to be The Bachelor. He was divorced from his college sweetheart back in 2012, and I’m not entirely sure if ABC ever even considered asking him to take on the role in the four years since. On the one hand, I don’t imagine he’d accept the gig for all the money in the world, if offered. He just doesn’t seem like the type of guy who’d want to go on the show. On the other hand, I think a potential Chris Harrison season of The Bachelor could be the most fascinating bit of reality TV in years. How many hosts ever actually compete on the show they host, after all? That said, I’m fine if Harrison never goes through with it. He makes a perfect host as is, so no need to change what works already. Besides, if he were ever The Bachelor, I imagine he’d have even less time to see his kids, and that seems pretty damn important to him right now. In fact, I wonder how much longer we’ll even have him as host before he decides to only do one Bachelor franchise show, or retire altogether.
