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."

Premise: True love (or a TV facsimile thereof) gets the reality treatment in this long-running dating game, in which a successful bachelor romances a number of beauties. The list of possible paramours is reduced each week until he gives a final red rose to one of them. The series spun off 'The Bachelorette', a spate of rip-offs and very few lasting pairings.
