How Old Is Bachelor Host Chris Harrison? You Asked, We Answer!
Sometimes it seems like Chris Harrison has been around forever. Kind of like some sort of prehistoric dinosaur who happens to be reality television's most dashing gent. This professional cupid has been hosting ABC's The Bachelor and The Bachelorette for more than a decade, but he's pretty young for an industry vet –– dude was born on July 26, 1971, which puts him at a mere 42! Which is totally the new 32, which is how old Juan Pablo Galavis is.
Chris began hosting The Bachelor back in 2002 when he was just 31 years old, and has enjoyed a successful career ever since. Not only does he host The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, he recently hosted the Miss America pageant and got to stare at a bunch of bikini-clad women for hours on end.
Sadly, Chris and his college sweetheart, Gwen Jones, divorced back in 2012 after a whopping 18 years of marriage, but fear not! Chris has been dating up a storm, and was recently linked to Bachelor 17 contestant Selma Alameri, though she vehemently denied anything funny was business-ing between them.
As of now, Chris seems to be single, but who has time for ladies when you're busy making other couples' dreams come true? Yep, Chris has officiated not one but five weddings, including the nuptials of Bachelor producers Cassie Lambert and Pete Scalettar, as well as those of Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum! Oh, and Chris also officiated the weddings of three total rando couples on New Year's Day.
Way to give back to the people, Saint Christopher.
