Chris Harrison, The Bachelor
For 12 years, Harrison made his role as Rose Master look easy. But during Season 18, Harrison took off his hosting hat and began questioning polarizing star Juan Pablo right alongside the audience and the contestants. Culminating in the awkwardly tense "After the Final Rose," Harrison pushed back and became visibly frustrated when Juan Pablo refused to answer seemingly simple questions. It was refreshing to see the cheerful (and sometimes cheesy) Harrison shed his TV persona and admit that the outcome isn't always perfect. But in the end, that perhaps made for better, more realistic TV.
