In the most shocking twist in The Bachelor history, the reality dating show host of all hosts Chris Harrison is now going to be a bachelor himself. Chris Harrison sadly split from his wife, Gwen, whom he's been married to for 18 years. Frankly, we've always had a thing for the Bachelor and Bachelorette host and his piercing blue eyes, so we'd be lying if we said we didn't hope Chris was the rose-wielding star of the next season. Or maybe the real plot twist is that he's who Bachelorette Emily ends up choosing? As Chris enters bachelorhood again, let's check out some of his best quotes on love, sex, and TV dating now.
"Don't tell a woman you may ever want to have intimate relations with someday that she reminds you of your mom . . . just don't."
Ellen DeGeneres: "Everyone knows it's the final rose. There's only one rose. They know it. Yet, every single time, 'Ladies, Brad. It's the final rose.' How do you not laugh when you do that?"
Chris Harrison: "You realize how little I do on this show. So, please, please don't take away the one thing I do."
"When I write my book someday I'll devote a chapter to proper bubble bath etiquette and technique."
"[Prince] William would have been the most amazing, most dramatic Bachelor ever, to borrow my own phrase. Think how good that show would have been. We'd be shooting, and women would be climbing over fences to jump into the show in the middle of production. You'd have had 30 women, then after the first rose ceremony, you'd have had 60. We'd have gone in reverse."
Emily O'Brien [on Ben skinny dipping]: "You're clouding your own mind 'cause you're just thinking about sex. You're not thinking about a relationship anymore."
Chris Harrison: "I think you have figured out men."
