After Harrison and The Bachelor franchise went splitsville, ABC replaced him with a bunch of hosts for their different shows.

Chris Harrison is reportedly still bitter about leaving the franchise. And the most important — being replaced by former star Jesse Palmer is not being taken very well by the former host of the show.

The source from  OK! magazine revealed, “He still feels like he built The Bachelor from the bottom up and didn’t want to leave.”
