Not everything is rosy for Chris Harrison.
“Chris Harrison is a genuine, awesome, real guy,” former Bachelorette contestant Kalon McMahon exclusively told Radar. “He’s smart and probably has the best job in the world right now, but at the same time, you can tell he is mentally checked out — I feel bad for him.”
McMahon, who was deemed the “villain” on Emily Maynard’s season, went on to explain why he believes Harrison is wasting his talents on the ABC hosting gig.
“Watching the show, it’s obvious, he’s tired of asking these terrible people about their awful relationships. He is sick of acting like he is invested and actually cares about these people finding love,” McMahon said. “He’s stuck between a rock and a hard place. He has the best job in the world – and gets paid very handsomely for it– but he’s over it.
“I’ll be curious to see how long he stays on the show.”
The controversial contestant went on to explain that ABC needs to take the dating reality show in a new direction to invigorate both the show and its’ host.
“I joke that the [Bachelor & Bachelorette] have gone green. They tend to recycle a lot of the storylines and are running out of ideas. Hopefully they get something to inspire them, so the show can keep going,” he said.
“They set Andi up perfectly to star on the show, but after Juan Pablo’s disastrous season, they really should bring in some fresh blood to change it up,” he suggested.
