The Bachelor - Jake Pavelka, Vienna
While Jake Pavelka's proposal to Vienna on Monday night's Bachelor season finale wasn't the outcome viewers may have hoped for, host Chris Harrison wants people to be "happy for them." Harrison also spoke to TVGuide.com about what he thinks of the 32-year-old pilot competing on Dancing with the Stars and Ali as the new Bachelorette, and what the best part of Jason and Molly's wedding was.

Fresh off the airing of The Bachelor's "Women Tell All" special, host Chris Harrison sat down with TVGuide.com to discuss Rozlyn Papa's bombshell claim.

Rule No. 1 for reality show contestants: Don't mess with the host. The Bachelor's Chris Harrison took aim at what he called the "classless, tactless" tactics of booted contestant Rozlyn Papa after she claimed during Monday's "Women Tell All" episode that Harrison once hit on a producer's wife. Other contestants don't put much stock in anything she says: Papa was kicked off the show after the other women accused her of having a physical relationship with a Bachelor staffer during filming — something the single mother swore on her son's life never happened. (As some in the studio audience gasped.) Harrison said he wouldn't dignify Papa's claims with a response, but he's more than happy to talk about the Bachelor's final pick: "Jake is very much in love with who he's chosen," Harrison said.
If you still have questions about what happened with The Bachelor's Rozlyn and a member of the production team, you'll soon find out. That's the word from host Chris Harrison, who promises Monday's women-tell-all episode will include more of the ousted competitor's "antics" and "desperate attempts to get 15 more minutes of fame." Harrison says the episode will also explore what might have been with Jake Pavelka and the departed Ali, adding, "feelings are still there."
TVGuide.com: Will we learn more about Ali's choice to leave Jake for her job?
Chris Harrison: I know there's been a lot of questions about why she didn't get the time off, because she knew she was going on the show, but she'll explain all that...

After a season of shocking exits and surprising choices, The Bachelor is down to its final two women: Vienna, the 23-year-old who butted heads with the rest of the women, and Tenley, the 25-year-old divorced girl-next-door. Although Ali made a plea to win back Jake after she chose to leave the show for her job, Jake made it clear he had moved on. So will Ali become the next star of The Bachelorette and was the fact that Gia was unable to tell Jake she was in love with him the reason for being sent home from St. Lucia? Host Chris Harrison weighs in.
TVGuide.com: Were you shocked that Jake told Ali not to come back?
Chris Harrison: I was. I didn't think he would have it in him to do that. I know that he was falling in love with her and I know it crushed him. I was proud of the fact that he stood up and was like, "No, you made the choice to leave and these other women haven't. I'm also falling for them and I've moved on and you need to do so as well."

Did The Bachelor jump the shark with Ali's abrupt exit stage left?
"I'm going to go right on a limb and say no," host Chris Harrison told TVGuide.com. "But you know, I think the great thing about the show is people are deeply disappointed and upset that she's gone."

The Bachelor had yet another dramatic exit this week. After her romantic hometown date with Jake, 25-year-old Ali was forced to choose between him and her job. Choosing the job — after all, she only had a 25 percent chance of receiving that final rose — Ali said goodbye. And in a series first, no rose ceremony was needed. TVGuide.com spoke to host Chris Harrison about whether viewers have seen the last of the duo, his thoughts on the rest of the hometown dates, and why Vienna and Ali are more alike than they'd care to admit.
TVGuide.com: Although Ali left, in next week's preview she appears to call Jake. What can you tell us about that?
Chris Harrison: You haven't seen the last of Ali and Jake and their situation is not...

In this week's Bachelor, the high-flying pilot Jake narrowed it down to four girls who will be taking him home to meet the parents. In her first one-on-one date with the Pavelka, Corrie revealed that she was saving herself for marriage, and finally opened up about why their relationship had been progressing at a slower pace. Too late in the game to let her guard down, Corrie was sent home. Host Chris Harrison tells TVGuide.com that Corrie most likely didn't have a chance and explained why both he and Jake have learned from bachelorette Gia never to judge a "book by its cover."
TVGuide.com: Did Corrie ever have a chance?
Chris Harrison: I honestly don't think so considering...
