Chris Harrison‘s journey has come to an finish.
After virtually 19 years of internet hosting The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, the 49-year-old star is about to formally exit the franchise, Deadline stories. In line with the outlet, Harrison will allegedly obtain an eight-figure settlement in trade for not talking out about his departure.
The information comes 4 months after he briefly stepped other than the sequence following his protection of Rachael Kirkconnell. Kirkconnell—who nabbed Matt James‘ closing rose—confronted controversy throughout her season after 2018 photographs surfaced of her attending a plantation themed social gathering.
“The woke police is on the market,” he mentioned throughout an interview with Rachel Lindsay. “And this poor lady Rachael, who has simply been thrown to the lions, I do not know the way you’re geared up when you might have by no means accomplished this earlier than, to be woke sufficient, to be eloquent sufficient, to be able to deal with this.”
As backlash poured in, Harrison took to social media to apologize for “wrongly talking in a way that perpetuates racism.”
