The Bachelor fans have been questioning Peter Weber’s decision to keep Victoria Fuller over Kelsey Weier after the hometowns episode.
Chris Harrison is coming to their defense!
“It’s one of those relationships, I see it often on the show, and you see it in life, where there’s passion, there’s chemistry, but it’s so volatile,” Chris told Us Weekly.
“And from the outside looking in, you think, ‘What do you do? What are you doing?’ It’s so clear.”
“It’s what makes the show so relatable. When you’re in those relationships. It’s really a lot easier said than done to just walk away.”
Chris Harrison also opened up about a personal relationship of his own that he thought was very similar to Peter and Victoria Fuller’s.
“If you’ve ever been in those relationships, the magnetic draw — and I’ve been in it! I’ve been in a relationship exactly like it as well, and I stayed and I went back and I stayed, went back and I made those same mistakes.”
“So you have to, you have to give Peter a little bit of a wide berth. You know, this is the craziest thing. We’ve all — we all do stuff like this.”
He also had a few words for the fans who have been very hard on the Bachelor.
“Luckily, Peter has a thick skin and it’s getting thicker by the day. I know he’s taken a little bit of a beating, but he has a good support system,” he added.
“He has a great family, a lot of people that love him.”
