Here is a collection of examples of Chris Harrison navigating, negotiating and counseling some of the most uncomfortable situations in reality history.
Case Study #1: Chris Harrison counseling Ashley Hebert through a very unhealthy obsession with Bentley Williams during her season as the Bachelorette. Chris is soooo good! Notice how he handles the situation with extreme care and compassion. He is very supportive and non-judgmental. I mean, this is the work of a TRUE professional.
Case Study #2: This is the infamous video of Chris confronting Rozlyn Pappa on engaging in an “inappropriate relationship with one of our staffers” during Jake Pavelka’s season of The Bachelor. Notice how uncomfortable he is (his throat even goes uncomfortably dry for a beat), but he still manages to deliver the news and send Rozlyn packing.
Case Study #3: No one could forget the After the Rose episode during Jason Mesnick’s season where, in an unprecedented move, Mesnick dumps amazing lady Melissa Rycroft and professes his love for runner-up Molly Malaney. This particular situation was SO emotional and trying that Chris Harrison opts to shoot the special without a live studio audience. He wants America to know how seriously he takes his role and how serious and raw these emotions and situations with these couples are!
Case Study #4: This is the uncomfortable on-camera meltdown of the Jake Pavelka and Vienna Giardi love story. I love how Chris Harrison is PART of the relationship!!! “I’m sorry the three of us are together like this. A couple of weeks ago we were enjoying a great dinner together. So how did WE get to this point?” “WE”!!!! I mean….amazing! I guess a relationship with Chris comes along with the amazing lady!
Case Study #5: Here is Chris Harrison walking us through the very uncomfortable Brad Womack and Emily Maynard After the Rose episode where we first learn about “poking the bear.” (Which, has since become the theme for one of our Ben Flajnik episode recaps because Courtney Robertson is apparently just like Brad when it comes to ‘poking’ and ‘bears.’)
This is just a sample of why Chris Harrison has clearly earned his Emmy!!! For the LOVE of God, Emmy folks….it’s time to deliver!
