Though Harrison only addresses the show’s male hardbodies, I’d argue that the sizeist casting is even more of an issue with the franchise’s women: as it is, the show’s bevy of would-be models have been slapped with nicknames like “Horsey” and “Fatty.” Throwing a token “chubby” man or woman into the mix would amount to nothing less than brutal humiliation.
Considering the shallow, inauthentic dog and pony show that reduce “dating” to, there’s no way anyone who isn’t virtually perfect-looking would survive the first few rose ceremonies.
Sure, I can put a suit and tie on, but I have hair on my chest and I don’t have a 12-pack.
In 2001, Harrison hosted the short-lived game show, Mall Masters for GSN.
In 2002, Harrison guest starred on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, as a music show host, episode, "Ping, Ping a Song." On November 23, 2008, Harrison hosted the American Music Awards pre-show live on ABC.
He has also served as the host of the syndicated version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? From 1993–99, Harrison worked as a sports reporter at CBS affiliate KWTV in Oklahoma City.
He also worked briefly for TVG Network, a horse racing channel and was the host of Designers' Challenge on HGTV.
The longtime host of ABC’s dating show made the surprising admission while cohosting Live With Kelly on Friday, February 17, after Kelly Ripa grilled him on his least-favorite Bachelor.“This will just ruin my life for the next month,” the 45-year old joked, before 'fessing up.
And while Bachelor Nation widely considers controversial season 18 star Juan Pablo Galavis to be the most-hated Bachelor ever, Harrison said it was actually 2005’s Bachelor Charlie O’Connell, who starred on season 7 of the reality dating show, who rubbed him the wrong way.“So here’s the thing, after 15 years, 30-some odd people that have been through this show, there are people I get along with better than others,” said Harrison, before naming O’Connell – whose actor brother Jerry O’Connell frequently slips into the Live cohost seat beside Ripa — as the one person he just didn’t “meld with” on their journey to find love.
After Harrison split from his high school sweetheart (the twosome was together for 22 years), the father of two admitted he was terrified to venture into bachelorhood.
"I guess I am a bachelor now, which scares the holy hell out of me—I'm not going to lie—because I haven't been one since the early '90s," the 41-year-old star told E! "And I thought those days were over—and I was happy to have them over!
I was never one of those married guys that was like, 'Man, I wish I was at the club at 4 a.m. ' I am so happy to be home, I love my life at home."And now, it looks like Harrison can enjoy his life at home with a new ladylove.
