Chris Harrison

The host of the popular ABC reality program The Bachelor Chris Harrison has announced he will step down from the program after his defense of Rachael Kirkconnell, a contestant on the show, was accused of a racist past.


Harrison offered a formal apology on his Twitter, in addition to his step-down announcement on Instagram, saying that his intentions were not meant to be in defense of racist rhetoric, but rather to give Rachael an opportunity to speak for herself.

The Interview

In the interview, Harrison defended Rachael Kirkconnell's appearance at a 2018 fraternity formal that had an antebellum plantation theme. Kirkconnell has been largely speculated to be the winner of this season, and is definitely a frontrunner in the current season of the show. He asked for the whole story to be heard in reference to her past, attempting to offer Kirkconnell an opportunity to speak on her own behalf.

Well, this is it. The last one. At least for a while. Hopefully, I'm back in the fall, giving you guys all the juiciest under the radar entertainment out there. But, for now, alas, this is the end. I'm doing something special today. I'm giving the usual TV show, movie, video game, and album, but this time, it's not under the radar, or new. It's my favorite things. Things where if people I love haven't seen them, I slap them across the face and make them watch. But, enough sappy stuff, let's get into it!
