‘The Bachelor’ host recapped the season 17 show himself, and revealed surprise bachelorette Kacie from season 16 ‘pleaded’ with Chris to come back on the show to meet Sean!
Chris Harrison has spent 10 years as the host of the unpredictable long-running dating show The Bachelor, so who better to recap the season 17 premiere than the host who watches it all from the sidelines? Chris gave his thoughts on bachelor Sean Lowe — and the entertaining women vying for his love.
Chris’ bachelor blog on Entertainment Weekly revealed what viewers maybe didn’t get to see during the Jan. 7 premiere — he said Sean was so nervous to meet all of his potential mates!
“I’m glad the season started with an ample amount of Sean catching us up on his life and just enough of that came with his shirt off to let you know after his heartbreak with Emily he didn’t go on a three-month ice cream and doughnut bender,” Chris joked in his blog.
Chris also said that Sean has a good sense of the women who were there for the right reasons — and the ones who are on just for TV. He put Paige Vigil from The Bachelor Pad in that category, and implied Ashley P‘s antics with 50 Shades of Grey and the tie ready for bondage.
Lindsay‘s “bold stunt” — showing up in a wedding dress — also gave suspicious vibes. “This move and Lindsay’s personality really skirted that grey area with Sean. He has a great sense of humor but Lindsay almost pushed things too far,” Chris wrote. But Sean ended up giving her a rose anyway!
Kacie Begs Chris To Come Back On ‘The Bachelor’
“We surprised Sean with a special 26th bachelorette this season,” Chris blogged. “We all know Kacie from Ben’s season and she pleaded for permission to come back to meet Sean. These two met before the show and apparently hit it off enough in Kacie’s mind that she felt it was worth all she’d have to go through to come back and fight for Sean’s heart along with the other 25 women.”
Sounds like Kacie really wants to find love — especially with Sean! Chris said Sean is the most sincere Bachelor host they’ve ever had — and we agree!
