It’s hard to believe that the biggest on-screen champion of The Bachelor journey is facing the end of his own love story with his wife of nearly two decades — but ‘tis true! Chris Harrison and wife Gwen confirmed their split in a statement via People Thursday, May 3, and many Bachelor alum — contestants who got to know the Rosemaster well during filming of the franchise’s many shows — tweeted their varying emotional reactions to the news:

Jesse Csincsak, a constant critic of many Bachelorette and Bachelor producers, tweeted his kind words for Chris, who he calls a great person. “Sad to hear about #TheBachelor @chrisbharrison & @gwenkharrisonGreat people Great Family Wishing you both the Best !!”

Bachelor Pad 1 winner David Good added, “Sorry to hear the news @chrisbharrison Good luck with everything. Nothing fun about that. Been there. Just put kids first always thru it.”

Bachelor 15 and BP 2 star Jackie Gordon kept it short but accurate, tweeting,  “Sad :(“
