Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Bachelor host Chris Harrison thinks JP and Ashley will marry

Bachelor host Chris Harrison has seen it all. He has seen breakups, hookups, cat fights, sausage fests and more! Harrison talked to Parade.com about the upcoming tenth season of The Bachelor with Ben Flajnik and has probably said the word “rose” more than anyone in history.

Check out highlights from the interview with Parade below.

ON THE NEW SEASON OF THE BACHELOR:

“Fans will absolutely love this season. I’ve very happy this is our tenth anniversary and I’m glad that we have a homerun to bring to the table. It is very good and it will definitely live up to the Bachelor name. Ben was great. Obviously, it really helps to have a great Bachelor, but the women are dynamic and fantastic and catty and emotional. At the same time, it’s this great evolution of a man. You watch Ben go through this change. It started with Ashley and that proposal in Fiji, but it really continues throughout this show.”

ON BACHELOR BEN:

“Ben and I — and you’ll see this in the show — it’s much more organic. Our deliberations became very casual and we did them actually before the cocktail parties even started. That’s just the kind of relationship we had. It was really like going through this with a friend and feeling their pain and pushing them in the right direction and trying to help them if I feel like they’re about to make a huge mistake. Kind of like what I learned with Ashley: I try to help these people save themselves from any grave errors, but at the same time, you have to let them live their life and make some mistakes.”

ON THE BACHELOR BREAKUPS:

“Our couples don’t face anything tougher than anybody else in the real world — your neighbor, your mom and dad, yourself. I think that’s why the show is so popular. It has been able to sustain for a decade when no TV show in modern history really does because everybody can relate to it. Everybody can relate to Ali and Roberto and what they just went through — falling in love and then the breakup. I think everybody has been in that position. Obviously, we take things to a different level with our dates and the escapism, but at the base of it all, I think we represent what everybody wants and that’s love and a relationship. We’ve all been through some bad ones and we all hope for the great ones. We all want to know what happened with Ali and Roberto, but the answer is there’s nothing that simple about it. They fell in love, they lived together for 18 months, and then decided that it can’t work. But at the same time, you see Ashley and J.P. loving and living their life in New York, and they seem to be close to getting married, so we hope for them.”
