Chris Harrison is usually the one asking the tough questions, of Bachelors and Bachelorettes who may or may not have made some questionable choices during their ABC journey. But now he’s the one in the hot seat — but for reasons completely different.
The newly single host of the mega dating franchise has previously shut down any chatter of him being the next Bachelor with such grace expected of him... but that didn’t stop Kelly Ripa from broaching the subject with Chris, who was her Live! co-host on Wednesday, May 16.
“Has ABC approached you yet to become the Bachelor?” asked Kelly to an amused Chris. Well, have they?
Silly rabbit, Chris isn't giving up his employer that easily. Instead he opted to joke about how long it had been since he’d even been on a date (22 years!), wondering aloud, “Is REM still on tour?” Better brush up on your Dierks Bentley, Chris.
