Sean Lowe is still happy with his decision, The Bachelor's Chris Harrison says.

And you don't even need The Bachelor spoilers to guess the result, he adds.

"Going into the finale, I knew [who he would pick]," he told E! News this week.

That was a stark contrast from the hometown dates, when he had "no idea."

On Monday night's season finale, Sean chooses between his two finalists, Catherine Giudici and Lindsay Yenter. Opinion is split on who fans prefer.

The Bachelor host-pimp Chris Harrison has insisted that mercurial contestant Tierra LiCausi is not a bad person, however she can be a little dramatic.

Ya think?

Tierra has been a source of controversy this season, and criticism intensified Monday when she cried, talked $h!t and threatened to leave the show.

Her antics prompted Sean Lowe to offer her a rose to convince her to stay, which didn't help matters as far as the other women in the house see it.

How long will she last? The Bachelor spoilers we've read say ... well, follow the link if you want to know. But here's how Harrison sizes her up:

Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for! No, not Jillian's return to The Biggest Loser. Not even the National Championship football game.

The Bachelor is back! Sean Lowe, jilted by Emily Maynard during her stint as the bachelorette, the 29-year-old Texan is back and looking for love.

(If you're impatient and want to jump ahead in time, it's okay. We understand check out The Bachelor Spoilers to find out Sean's rumored top 4!)

Sean Lowe as The Bachelor

He skypes with his family and runs with his shirt off! What's not to love?

(I'd like an over/under on how many times we see Sean working out this season.)

One thing's for sure: Emily should've picked Sean. Seeing how she's already called it quits with Jef with one F and Sean was so in love with her and all.

Sean says "it took a while" to get over Emily. So, in TV talk, that means 15 minutes. Minus 3.

The Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum married Saturday in Pasadena, Calif.

Surrounded by family, friends and Bachelor alumni including Ali Fedotowsky, Emily Maynard, and Jason and Molly Mesnick, the couple said "I do" in an outdoor ceremony.

Officiated by franchise host Chris Harrison. Seriously.

"Today is all about our friends and family," Ashley Hebert said. "It's about standing with J.P., looking around at all the people we love in the same room there to celebrate our love."

Rumors of Ryan Lochte as The Bachelor are swirling ever since the Olympics, and last night, host-pimp Chris Harrison says he's very much open to the idea.

With a couple of caveats, that is:

  • Lochte must wear a Speedo the entire season.
  • Absolutely no peeing in pools at the mansion.

"That's part of the deal" Harrison said at The Expendables 2 premiere in Hollywood. "Did you see him in his Speedo? I mean, all of America stopped."

"It's a female driven show, come on!"

Lochte, who will guest star on 90210 this fall, said of the Speedo stipulation, "That's fine ... I usually already am. There's not much of a difference."

While conventional wisdom says the show will go with Arie Luyendyk, Jr., or Sean Lowe, Harrison says "I think it would be awesome" to have Ryan.

"If he promises not to pee in the pool, we'll be alright."

"If it gets asked, I'd definitely consider it," the 28-year-old swimmer said of looking for love on The Bachelor this winter. "So we'll see what happens."

What do you think: Ryan Lochte as The Bachelor?

Tonight the men spill the secrets of this season of The Bachelorette and single mom, Emily Maynard. They'll talk douchebaggery and heartbreak. There might even be man tears.

But will they spill the biggest secret of all? That is, will they spoil which man won Emily's heart?

Well, no. Probably not.

Oh well. The big teases.

Chris Harrison, a.k.a. Mr. Hostman, (get it? Mr. Hostman? Mr. Postman? Bring me a dream...okay, I'll stop.) reminds us that the finale will be Sunday and Arie and Jef will be absent from tonight's tell-all. But we'll get plenty of Kalon and Ryan. Joy.

Before we meet the men, Chris and Emily dish on the season. They start out rehashing Ryan's fantastic first date and following it up with every awful thing he said all season. I had such high hopes for him in the beginning. And then his ego got bigger than his heart. Minus 7.

And then we get a recap of Kalon and Emily's "West Virginia Hood Rat" send-off. He was absolutely horrifying. Minus 4 for not getting rid of him sooner.

Oh, Doug. Poor Doug. And that awful, awful excuse for a kiss. What, is he 12? Minus 2.

The Bachelorette star Emily Maynard has four sexy suitors left, but the true object affection is newly-single host Chris Harrison, a tabloid hilariously claims.

Star cites "insiders" involved with the hit ABC reality show talking about how close the pair have become, with some even saying they are "madly in love."

While this revelation is new, the "electric attraction" has caused sparks to fly from the beginning, even before Chris and wife Gwen split up this spring.

Emily Maynard, Chris Harrison

"Chris openly told staffers that Emily was the most beautiful woman he'd ever laid eyes on," said an insider, who apparently wasn't alone in noticing.

Even former contestants were aware of the potential there.

"From the beginning, I always said there was no way Emily was really going to end up with one of the guys," says former Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi.

"She really wanted to be with Chris, and it was obvious he wanted to be with her too, I vacationed with Chris and his family in St. Lucia and know him well."

"He was never with his wife. He's a flirt. I guarantee Emily and Chris end up together. If she gets engaged to another man, the show will probably spin it as a love triangle."

Wait ... Vienna Girardi vacationed with Chris' family?

There may not be enough salt on the planet to take this report with. As for who she really picks, The Bachelorette spoilers say little about who does get her final rose next month ... though there are hints as to the final three.

The Arie Luyendyk scandal involving his past relationship with The Bachelorette producer Cassie Lambert was real, Chris Harrison says, but also isn't THAT big a thing.

Chris, the show's venerable host slash pimp, admits that Arie will become a lightning rod for conflict on next week's episode and that Lambert is the reason why.

At the same time, Harrison promises a full explanation about the whole situation when it comes up in the episode. The entire week, he says, was "very intense."

Emily Maynard and Arie Luyendyk

"Emily does find out about the relationship Arie had with our producer and we deal with that. It’s very straightforward, we show clips and raw footage," he adds.

"We just show viewers what we have and the conversation that took place. It was just a decision of whether we sweep it under the rug and act like it didn’t happen?"

"We want to show people that yes there was something there, but it wasn’t the biggest calamity in the history of the show,” Harrison told TV Guide this week.

Indeed, if you've read The Bachelorette spoilers this season, you know it's very unlikely that this is the end of Arie's run on the show. We'll leave it at that.

Of the celebrity gossip stories going around, Chris says "next week we will deal with this ... you will get the complete story, and more importantly, the truth!"

Here's ABC's promo of the episode, which teases the confrontation:

Our prediction is that as upset as she may be initially, Emily will be angry that they did not disclose the relationship sooner ... and that's pretty much it.

The two dated years ago, and not for a very long time; it's obvious he's into Emily at this point, and maybe Cassie simply wanted her to form her own opinion.

In any case, tell us how you think it'll go down on Monday!

The news of Chris Harrison separating from his wife of 18 years took many by surprise yesterday, but the venerable TV personality will still be back in his familiar role as The Bachelorette host and pimp on May 14.

In a recent article for EW, he previewed six guys to watch this season.

Will any of these fellas end up in the final four, or beyond? See The Bachelorette spoilers we've compiled so far for more on that. Then read the primer on a half dozen fellas who undoubtedly will be major players this summer ...

Kalon McMahon, 27: This "luxury-brand consultant" is, Harrison says, "cocky, brash, and arrogant" and arrives on the first night in a rented helicopter.

"He makes a huge first impression, but the big story is, will it fade quickly?" Sounds that way ... considering his equipment wasn't that remarkable.

"I don't know where that helicopter came from, but it was pretty unimpressive," Harrison says. "It would be like showing up in a Prius instead of a limo."

The Bachelor host Chris Harrison and his wife of over 18 years, Gwen, are divorcing.

The couple announced their separation "after much heartfelt consideration" today.

"Though we have made this incredibly difficult decision to separate, our love and mutual respect remain, and we look forward to sharing in the lives of our wonderful children," Chris and Gwen said in a joint statement Thursday.

Chris Harrison, Wife

Harrison, 40, is best known for hosting ABC's The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. In 2010, he was accused on-screen of hitting on a producer's wife.

At the time, he was hardly ruffled by the "cheap shot" of controversial contestant Rozlyn Papa. "I had nothing to hide," he said. "My wife was there."

The couple live 35 miles from Hollywood with their kids Joshua, 9, and Taylor, 7.

Harrison, who coaches both kids' soccer teams, is "an amazing father," Gwen says. "He's very loving and involved." He's also amazing at his job.

No word if he will also be the next Bachelor, but Harrison will be back running the show for its popular spinoff (see Bachelorette spoilers) May 14.
