Many fans still aren’t quite sure they like The Bachelor without Chris Harrison. Fans were distraught when the longtime host made his final exit earlier this year. Now that a little bit of time has passed, Chris is making his way back into the public eye. Plus, more is coming out about what exactly he plans to do with his time now that he’s not hosting the franchise. Is he retiring or planning something else for the future?
What Chris Harrison has been up to since leaving the show
US Weekly shared what Chris Harrison has been up to since his Bachelor hosting duties officially ended. A source close to Chris reports that he is actually doing great since his departure. He is spending more time with his two children and girlfriend Lauren Zima. Chris is living a low-key kind of life in Texas except for when he is taking a vacation here and there.
The source said, “He’s soaking in these moments of not working and taking time for himself and his family.” They continued, “He celebrated his 50th birthday last month and recently celebrated his anniversary with Lauren. He sees this time as almost a new chapter of his life and is figuring out what’s going to be his next best move.”
Is he bitter?
The source says Chris holds no grudges or hard feelings towards the franchise. In fact, he still keeps in contact with some crew members and also some former contestants. He admits he’s not watching Bachelor in Paradise this season. However, Chris keeps up with the show via social media and being tagged in posts.
Chris misses all the fans dearly. The source said, “He reads messages from fans and posts on social media.” They continued saying, “Although he’s not the host anymore, he still loves Bachelor Nation and isn’t one to hold any grudges, especially [with] the fans, after what went down. He really misses them. He isn’t watching Paradise, but he comes across headlines and gets tagged and tweeted at on social media.”
Chris’ future plans
The source also adds that Chris is not ready for retirement. He will be coming back! They said, “He’s for sure going to make a comeback in the near future and will announce his return to TV once everything is set in stone. He’s not ready to retire just yet.”
