If you think ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette’ are dramatic, just imagine an All-Stars edition of the show! caught up with host, Chris Harrison, who tells us he has strong reservations about that ever happening — find out why!

As a long-running reality show’s seasons continue, they often have to resort to different ways of approaching the show, in order to get the viewers that they so desperately need. But if it was up to host Chris Harrison,  we would never see an All-Stars edition of The Bachelor!

Chris Harrison Talks ‘The Bachelor’ All-Stars Edition

During the Los Angeles Confidential Magazine Grammy party, celebrating cover star, Mary J. Blige, on February 10, spoke EXCLUISVELY with Chris about the possibility of a Bachelor All-Star Edition and he was adamantly against it. He told us, “No, no! Our show is based on the sincerity and genuineness of the people on our show, whether they are genuine or not, if you ever bring someone back, it reeks of stunt casting! I think it would fall flat like DWTS, which essentially jumped the shark. You have to be careful when you pull the all-star card. It can work, like the Apprentice, but it wouldn’t work with our show!”

The show has, from time to time, brought some people back to be the next Bachelor or Bachelorette, but never have they gone full-force and cast a show entirely with past favorites, all vying for another chance at love.

Even though Chris would never like to see an All-Star season happen, isn’t The Bachelor Pad practically one, anyways? If he has his way, that might be the closest we ever get!

So, HollywoodLifers, would you like to see a Bachelor All-Stars edition? Sound off below!
