Chris Harrison is the host of The Bachelor. He's pretty much a major tool.

Juan Pablo Galavis’ decisions this season, followed by his comments on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special baffled everyone who saw them.

Especially the man sitting across from him and forced to engage him.

“I had like a pack of Tums and Pepto Bismol. I was just downing it during the show,” Chris Harrison joked to Access Hollywood in a new interview.

“It was an interesting, bizarre ride."

"I know I say this a lot about being dramatic and controversial and all that, but literally, in 12 years, it was the most confusing, bizarre show I’ve ever seen.”

Regarding the most awkward part, when Chris said that Juan Pablo had a surprise, only to have Galavis act like he had no clue what he was talking about?

“Juan Pablo told us in St. Lucia, that [on] ‘After the Final Rose,’ I have a big surprise for you,” Chris said. “He said it to one of our executives at ABC."

Juan Pablo Galavis may or may not be the hottest Bachelor ever, but he is definitely the one who took to the role the last, according to host Chris Harrison.

With just four women remaining - Nikki Ferrell, Clare Crawley, Andi Dorfman and Renee Oteri - Juan Pablo's got big decisions to make as the season ends.

He'll have a hard time with them, Harrison says. A very hard time.

The Bachelor spoilers have a lot to say about who stays and who goes (and for what reason), but whatever the outcome, Chris says it didn't come easy.

Excerpts from the venerable host's conference call this week ...

On next week: "As far as the hometown dates go, you see like a [Sean Lowe] or any of these guys kind of roll in and it's really smooth sailing."

"And this season isn't such smooth sailing for [Juan Pablo]."

"When he goes into these homes, he's really vying for the [parents'] approval and permission, trying to win their permission to marry their daughters."

Recently-divorced Bachelor host Chris Harrison is reportedly dating Selma Alameri, who you may recall was a contestant on Season 17 of the series.

Will you accept this unexpected rose?

  • Chris Harrison: Pimpin'!

The 42-year-old host of the hit ABC reality show was overheard telling friends that he's in a relationship with Selma at Pearl’s Liquor Bar in LA on Thursday.

"Chris was introducing Selma as his girlfriend," an eyewitness tells the celebrity gossip magazine. "They were very cute and not taking their hands off each other."

Chris and his former wife, Gwen Harrison, who have two children together, surprisingly announced their separation last year after 18 years of marriage.

Chris Harrison isn't being a hater. Just realistic.

When The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock accepted Chris Siegfried's proposal Monday on the season finale, the pair began envisioning wedding bells.

The show's host isn't sure they will be heard.

“I mean, let's be honest. What are the odds?" Harrison said of the pair's prospects. "Most relationships don't make it down the aisle. They just don't."

“We've been on a very good run lately with Ashley [Hebert] and J.P. [Rosenbaum] and I'm fully convinced Sean [Lowe] and Catherine [Giudici] will."

“But married? I don't know. The odds are no, but you never know.”

There's never been a season quite like this one, which has left fans clueless, up in arms and clamoring for The Bachelorette spoilers heading into the finale.

In part one of the two-part, five-hour season-ender, leading lady Desiree Hartsock was awkwardly, painfully dumped by her first choice, Brooks Forester.

She has two guys left, but having basically admitted that her feelings for Drew Kenney and Chris Siegfried aren't on that same level, what will she do now?

ABC has not released a single clip beyond Desiree talking to host Chris Harrison to talk about Brooks' exit. How the heck are they going to fill 2-3 hours?

Harrison teases that “There's nothing typical about this finale.”

No kidding. But does Brooks Forester come back or what?

Following last week's hometown visits and elimination of Zak Waddell, it's time for The Bachelorette season 9 men to tell all before the season's shocking finale!

Do James and Ben have unfinished business? Will Zak get the closure he wants? Will we get any hints as to which gentleman Desiree chose, if she chose one at all?

The Bachelorette spoilers are abuzz with rumors of both heartbreak and engagement and we've got only two weeks to go before we reach the end (or the beginning) of Desiree Hartsock's fairy tale. Let's hear what the men had to say now!

Chris Harrison introduces the special and only drops 1 "for the right reasons" and none "fairy tales." Plus 3.

Des and Chris crashed some at-home Bachelorette viewing parties. It's...kind of weird. Des drops the words "fairy tale" and isn't at all worried or shocked or scared at how well the women at the girl's nights know her. Not freaked out at all. 

She teams up with J.P. and Ashley to crash some parties in New York. And then the Mesnicks show up. Trista's looking...older. 

There have been 26 seasons of this franchise. Twenty. Six. That's some dedication to ratings love. Plus 8.

Does Desiree Hartsock's quest for love end with her choosing no one?

The Bachelorette spoilers have given a pretty strong indication of who the favorite is, but that doesn't mean she won't end up right where she started.

Asked recently if the guy Desiree chooses is a better fit for her than Bachelor Sean Lowe, franchise host Chris Harrison paused and then mused:

"Um, well, it depends on if she ends up with anybody."

Hence the rumor that she picks no one in the end.

"We haven't said anything about how the season ends," Harrison says, "but I can tell you that Des is in for an emotional, wild ride before we get to the end."

"It's definitely not what everybody is going to think."

It's Game On for the men of The Bachelorette season 9. Tonight they'll compete for Desiree Hartsock's affections over a rousing game of dodge ball. And one of them will get a special visitor.

Who will survive tonight's Rose Ceremony? Read our THG +/- recap now to find out! (Or just skip straight to The Bachelorette spoilers.)

Chris Harrison shows up at Casa de Testosterone to say there will be three dates this week: Two group dates and one one-on-one date.

There's still a lot of tension with Ben. So Bension? Minus 4 (for my terrible joke).

Chris, Brian, Drew, Michael, Brooks, Brad, Mikey, Brandon, Zack K., and Ben are invited on the first group date. None of them are impressed to be sharing a limo with Ben.

They'll be playing Dodgeball today. Here to school them in the ways of dodging and balling is a team from the National Dodgeball League. Which is apparently a thing.

This week on The Bachelorette, Desiree Hartsock will begin dating the men of season 9! Who will get the first solo date? Which of the guys will she take on a group date? Will there be man tears?

One thing's for sure, there will be a rap video with Soulja Boy.

We'll find out all of this and more now in our THG +/- recap. (Of course, if you don't want to wait, you can always skip ahead to The Bachelorette spoilers. We won't tell!)

The guys and their muscles move into the house and Chris Harrison explains the dating scenario. Any guy who doesn't get a rose on a one-on-one date is going home immediately.

The lucky winner of the first one-on-one date is Brooks! He looks a lot like Steve Howey so I have trouble taking him seriously. Des doesn't though, so good for her.

She picks him up in her baby blue Bentley and instead of letting him drive, she takes the wheel. Plus 8.

After being dumped by Sean Lowe during the hometown dates, beautiful brunette Desiree Hartsock is back and looking for love.

And a best friend to share life with her. And probably a little fame, too. (If this doesn't pan out, maybe she has a career as a rap artist?)

But hey, with 25 handsome and successful men flying in from all over for the chance to drink a lot of booze, spill some man tears, start some drama, all in the quest to win her hand, can we really blame her? 

Tonight she'll meet the men of The Bachelorette Season 9 and narrow the playing field down to 19 contenders. Of course, if you don't want to wait, feel free to skip ahead and read The Bachelorette spoilers to learn the identities of Desiree's Final Four.

The rest of us will be here watching what is sure to be two parts train wreck and one part treat.

Desiree Hartsock lived a humbling life, so the extravagance of the house she'll be staying in on the hillsides of Malibu, CA is quite the step up. And someone put m&ms on her nightstand. Plus 5. Where do I get somebody to do that?
