Chris Harrison Names Favorite Bachelor Couples, Wants to Go Back to Casting Fresh Faces
No surprise, Trista and Ryan Sutter made Rosemaster Chris Harrison’s list of favorite Bachelor and Bachelorette romances.
"Trista and Ryan were just lightning in a bottle,” Chris said (via The Huffington Post) of The Bachelorette Season 1 couple. “I don't know if we'll ever capture anything like that again. That one will always stand out.”
The next couple he mentioned may raise a few eyebrows — or just seem like timely cross-promotion for The Bachelorette Season 8: Brad Womack and Emily Maynard of The Bachelor Season 15. "I felt like the two of them were meant to be and it was gonna work," Chris said. "When they broke up, I was really sad."
Chris said Emily was a rare unanimous choice to be the Season 8 Bachelorette — even though she was a “recycled” contestant from a past season and Chris would like to get away from that trend.
"That's something I've been fighting for years,” Chris said. “I get when you have someone like Emily, it's a no-brainer you bring her back. If (someone) is not a unanimous choice, let's go outside of the family. Let's start over. I would love to see us start fresh. ... I want to get back to that and go back to our roots. Then if you find someone from our show that you can't deny, it's OK (to bring him or her back)."
That’s something a lot of fans have brought up, especially in recent seasons. Are you ready to meet someone brand spankin’ new as The Bachelor/ette or do you feel like we are meeting brand new people each season and learn to care about them enough to want to see them find love when it doesn’t work the first time?
