Yes, he would accept the rose.
Chris Harrison’s exit from The Bachelor franchise was the most shocking and still talked about event in the reality TV world.
And now, he is discussing the idea of returning to his old job and says he would absolutely “entertain the call” about returning to host the ABC shows.
Here’s what he said about getting a call from ABC to host the show again.
“I live by the axiom never say never because in life and business, that comes back to bite you in the butt,” Chris said on his podcast The Most Dramatic Podcast Ever.
“Would I have that conversation? Yes. I also believe in relationships and in business, take the phone call and you listen and you have that conversation, whether it’s uncomfortable or not.”
Chris also said that ABC may be having internal conversations about starting a new journey with him.
“With the advent of this podcast, they’ve seen the numbers,” he says. “They’ve seen the response in my social media. They’re not deaf to all of that. They’ve seen what’s happening, so am I shocked these conversations are happening? No. It would not be a surprise. In fact, I would be shocked if they aren’t happening.”
Chris then went on to talk about the positive impact the show has had on him.
“I will always be grateful for that in my life,” Chris said about his journey as the Bachelor host. “It changed my life. It changed my kids’ lives. I still have a lot of friends working on the show—people I really care about. I loved my time. Not all of it, it was still a job. But overall, it was amazing. It was an incredible experience.”
“Did it change? Yes. And was it the same in the last several years? No, it was not. I was contemplating when it was going to be time.”
This interview comes after he previously admitted to not making a comeback.
“I miss people on the show, some of the people you got to work with are the most talented crew in the world and I love and adore them,” he said in a previous episode of his podcast with Kaitlyn Bristowe. “That ship has sailed, and it was wonderful. I don’t say that with any bitterness. There’s a time and a space for all relationships.”
