After a disastrous turn of events this past weekend, it seems it may be time for Chris Harrison to take a moment, say his goodbyes. Yep, that’s right, guys. The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss announced that Chris is going to be replaced as the host with the most, as he didn’t receive the rose on the most dramatic day of the week: Sunday (yep, it’s the new Monday, and you’ll see why).
On September 29, Fleissmeister tweeted that Chris would be replaced — with Jake Pavelka! But before you go crying into your Franzia box some more, take a deep flower-scented breath, because it looks like Mike and Chris were just messing with us. And praise Yeezus, because we couldn’t sit through a season like that.
“My Chargers beat @chrisbharrison's Cowboys! I get to replace him with a new host for 1 #Bachelor ep. Get ready to experience Pavelkamania!!” Mike joked on Twitter, sending fans into a panic.
Follower responses ranged from “You’re nuts” to “Hope you are kidding. Yikes.” And nope, before you ask, that wasn’t even us. But though Jake didn’t chime in, Season 17 contestant Leslie Hughes did, writing “I’m ready when you need me #host.” Hmm, not a terrible idea...
Could you imagine if Jake Pavelka took over hosting duties? We’re so glad it was only a joke. Right, Mike, RIGHT?!?
