Is Bachelorette Host Chris Harrison the Worst Wingman Ever?
With a decade of experience counseling lovestruck Bachelors and Bachelorettes on national television, Chris Harrison should be the most qualified wingman in the entertainment biz. After all, he’s ushered more than 20 hopeful romantics into questionable short-term relationships ending in mostly unsuccessful proposals (considering the goal of a proposal is, you know, marriage).
But as the genius video montage below proves, even with all that practice coaching from the sidelines of love, Saint Christopher has a bad habit of ruining the moment.
He always seems to be breaking up fun parties by tapping on champagne glasses or calling with bad news about one of the contestants or mocking people who don’t know what a parking brake is. His unsolicited advice includes lines like “I promise you this is not going to have a happy ending.” #realtalk
Granted, it’s part of Chris’ job to be the party pooper. He’s like the parental guardian at a coed middle school birthday party, corralling the hormone-riddled into doing group activities while making sure not too many guests break down sobbing / go home with hickies.
Then again, maybe this veteran love advisor has just seen one too many whirlwind affairs end in emotional disaster and got a bit of a chip on his chiseled shoulders. That or he believes the best way to find true love is using online dating apps.
