Chris Harrison responds to rumors that Katie is the subsequent Bachelorette
Chris Harrison addresses rumors that he announced the next Bachelorette during the recently filmed Women Tell All special.
The host of ABC’s dating franchise spoke to Rachel Lindsay for Extra on Tuesday February 9th, and he claimed that Matt James‘recent occupation Katie Thurston was not appointed as the new lead despite media speculation to the contrary.
“We didn’t name you or anyone else the next Bachelorette during the Women Tell All special. In fact, we didn’t even talk about who the next Bachelorette was,” the host said. “As far as I know, Katie, no one was promoted to the next Bachelorette … and I promise you this won’t be part of the Tell All special at all.”
Chris explained that while Katie will be featured in the special, the subject of running her own season was left out.
“She was in the hot seat, as were some other women,” he continued. “I didn’t even ask her if she wanted to be a Bachelorette or if she wanted to do that.”
