Chris Harrison loves his job as host of hit reality show The Bachelor, but there are moments that the celeb most definitely dreads. While blogging last night’s season finale, Chris admitted that he’d known all along that the final rose ceremony would be tough, no matter which lady emerged with the lucky flower.
There’s plenty of emotional scenes throughout the entire season of The Bachelor, but none more so than the final rose ceremony. At this point, one of the two women the star has strong feelings for must return home with a broken heart. And such was the case last night, when Sean Lowe chose Catherine Giudici over Lindsay Yenter. Obviously, Lindsay was pretty upset, something that host Chris Harrison could have easily predicted after years at the helm of The Bachelor.
Shortly after the finale aired, Chris posted a blog in which he explained that he’d known ahead of time that the final rose ceremony would be brutal. Although Chris always has a tough time with the prospect of someone being hurt, he predicted it would be even worse this time around. And he was right. “This [season's final rose ceremony] was extra tough. Because Sean is so sincere and has been so open and honest with these women, it has led to the building of two solid relationships.”
Chris is happy for Sean and Catherine, especially now that the happy couple is finally able to let their relationship go public. But the host also acknowledge’s Lindsay’s remarkable composure following her rejection. According to Chris, Lindsay handled the situation “with class,” which, of course, what audiences would expect of the jilted contestant.
