Chris Harrison Explains Why Chris Soules Was Chosen as the Star of The Bachelor

It's no secret that The Bachelorette's Chris Soules was a front-runner to star on The Bachelor. He's hot, successful, left his season broken-hearted — all the makings for the perfect lead. But with another past fan-favorite -- Arie from Emily Maynard's season -- also in talks for the gig, host Chris Harrison says the decision came down to the wire.

And the New Bachelor Is …

ABC has chosen Chris Soules as the next star of The Bachelor, it was announced Wednesday on Good Morning America.

"I was humbled, flattered, grateful," he said during the reveal. "Coming from a small town I never expected to have this opportunity to be on either show, let alone be the lead on The Bachelor. So it's been awesome."

Soules, 32, became a fan-favorite on the most recent season of The Bachelorette and made it to the Final 3. During his fantasy suite date with Andi, she decided to let him go before the night was over. Following his exit, the Iowa farmer told us, "It's OK to [be vulnerable]. When I get the opportunity with the right person, I can do that and still survive if it doesn't work out and still do it again. This helped me learn a lot about myself and how to cope and put yourself in situations and manage it as an adult and without family and friends. I know it helped me grow."

Bachelor in Paradise Host Chris Harrison: You Will Be Addicted

Summer may be winding down, but Monday nights are just heating up with the premiere of ABC's newest reality show, Bachelor in Paradise.

The latest spin-off from the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, this seven-episode series features past Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants living in an isolated, romantic Mexican locale, where they'll take another shot at finding love. The premiere (8/7c) begins with the arrival of eight women and six men, and after a series of dates, each man chooses one woman at the first rose ceremony. But while two ladies leave by the end of the opener, new cast members arrive to shake things up each week.

Meet the cast of Bachelor in Paradise

"With Bachelor Pad, you got caught up in the game, so that's why we tore it apart and retooled it," host Chris Harrison tells TVGuide.com. "It became about money, and our show and franchise was never about that. So I think people will love that Bachelor in Paradise is about what makes The Bachelor and The Bachelorette great — only it's not just [one guy or one girl]. It's that times 10, which leads to love triangles, drama and amazing dates. If you love Bachelor or Bachelorette you won't not be addicted to it."

Bachelorette's Harrison: Andi and Josh Act Like They've Been Together for 10 Years Already

After one of the toughest seasons in the show's history — and certainly the most tragic — The Bachelorette has ended with a happy engagement.

The last suitor to exit the limo on the first night, Josh caught Andi's attention immediately, but she remained skeptical of him because he was a former pro athlete. Still, the Tampa native remained a frontrunner and eventually won her over. In fact, she was so smitten that she dumped Nick the morning of the final rose ceremony. After Andi was finally able to profess her love, Josh got down on one knee, proposed and she said, "Yes!"

What You Didn't See During The Bachelorette "Men Tell All"

It was a night of several firsts on The Bachelorette's "Men Tell All."

On the season's penultimate episode, the majority of Andi's rejected suitors gathered to rehash the season with host Chris Harrison. But in addition to some very heated conversations, the show also brought back happily married couple Ashley and J.P. to talk about their exciting baby news — and get a live ultrasound! (Yes, you read that right.) The two hours also included an inquisitive audience member interrupting Chris' hot-seat time for what became somewhat of a mini-date. But was it all staged? And did the men really get everything off their chests? We were on the scene to figure out what went on behind the scenes! Plus: Harrison, Andi and some of the guys share their take on the night and give a preview of the finale.

Exclusive Bachelorette: Men Tell All Video: Is Andi Pregnant?

Bachelorette host Chris Harrison wastes no time asking Andi the most pressing question on Monday's Men Tell All episode: Is she pregnant?

Every season, the show's rejected men and women reunite to hash out the season, while the star gets to come face-to-face with all of their exes. Monday's episode is also a chance for Harrison to address rumors, including the recent — and very ridiculous -- one that Andi is pregnant after her Fantasy Suite dates.

Should The Bachelorette Have Filmed the Reaction to Eric's Death? Show Stands by Decision

There's no handbook for how to proceed when a reality show contestant passes away and there certainly hasn't been much precedence for how to handle it if it happens while the show is still filming. When Eric Hill tragically died shortly after his exit from The Bachelorette, it wasn't a question if it would be addressed, but producers were faced with whether or not they should film and subsequently broadcast the remaining cast learning of the horrific accident.

The Bachelorette host on Eric's final episode: It's hard to know the right thing to do

On Monday's episode, following Andi's hometown dates with MarcusJoshNick and Chris, host Chris Harrison sat the five down in his living room to explain what had happened. Viewers watched as the group was given the shocking news and as Andi broke down remembering her last conversation with Eric. Eventually, the episode turned to a one-on-one with Andi, followed by a melancholy rose ceremony in which Andi again wondered how to celebrate the next phase of her journey amidst such tragedy.
