Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 4

The Olympic flame might have gone out in London, but on Bachelor Pad, the wildfires are just starting to burn. With Reid gone, there was a huge shift of power in the house and the people left in the wake had to come together to try and get rid of the now-forming power couples. Our competition this week, the Game Show Mash-Up, was really a no-holds-barred, tell it like it is kind of competition, and let me tell you, it wasn’t long before the claws came out.

The women started off and the rivalry between Jaclyn, Ed’s partner, and Sarah, his recently forsaken lover, goes on. Sarah can’t quite see the connection between Jaclyn and Ed, but I think it’s pretty clear that something is going on. More on that later. In the meantime, the real drama began when Jamie called out Jaclyn for being fake. Jaclyn may be the funny one in the house, but when someone gets under her skin, the jokes stop and her anger really comes out. From that moment on, Jaclyn was gunning for Jamie and no amount of explaining from Jamie was going to change that. READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 3

Before I get into the mess that was this week’s Bachelor Pad, I want to take a moment to talk about a beautiful thing that happened to our family this week. Saturday I was honored to officiate the wedding of two of our wonderful producers, Cassie and Pete. I have watched these two grow professionally and romantically over the years, and it has been a wonderful thing to witness. This love culminated in an amazing ceremony this weekend surrounded by family and friends. It was fantastic to see and hang with so many of our happy couples at the wedding, including Ben and Courtney, Emily and Jef, and Ashley and JP. There was a lot of love in the house, and I can’t wait for the next wedding to come. I hope they are on their honeymoon and not reading this but I just want to say congratulations to Cassie and Pete — your Bachelor family loves you both very much.

This week’s Bachelor Pad was interesting to say the least. READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' finale AND the 'Bachelor Pad' premiere!

chris-harrison

I hope you don’t mind but since it’s been a busy 48 hours, I’m combining my blogs. I figure since there’s really no official blogging rules (yes, I checked) I could make up my own and so talking about the live Bachelorette finale and the premiere of Bachelor Pad in one blog is okay. Before we get to the beauty that is Pad I want to step back to Sunday night and put a bow on Emily’s season and our three-hour television event.

First of all, I absolutely loved the idea of doing the show live and creating what amounted to be one big nationwide viewing party. For me to be able to watch the show along with a live studio audience packed with fans was a thrill for me. To see it through their eyes was incredible and it reminded all of us at the Bachelor why we do this show and how much people really love it. The finale really spoke for itself so I’ll just give a few thoughts on what turned out to be one of the best seasons we’ve ever had. READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All'

Welcome to my tell-all about the Men Tell All. We are less than one week away from the incredible finale of Emily’s season. If you didn’t catch it the few times I mentioned it during the special, Emily’s finale is this Sunday, July 22! If you just missed that mention then it is my hope that you will see it when I mention it again at the end of this blog. The MTA is always an interesting show but for some reason this season I really wasn’t sure what I was going to get. It didn’t take long to realize it was going to be a good show.

The first thing that became very evident was the crowd’s response to Sean. They went nuts every time I mentioned his name. We started talking a little bit about Kalon and then I brought him down to the hot seat. Either Kalon is just too proud to admit that he was wrong and was incredibly rude and disrespectful, or he really just doesn’t have a clue. I might be leaning towards the latter, unfortunately. The more he talked the more he really didn’t seem to see anything wrong with how he acted towards Emily or the other guys. The best part about Kalon is the more he talked, the deeper he dug his own grave. He just can’t help himself. The guys were more than willing to remind him how he acted and didn’t let him off the hook. You’ll be seeing a lot more of Kalon starting next week as he moves into Bachelor Pad. READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' episode 9

The last few weeks I’ve been racking my brain trying to remember if we’ve ever had a season with such a tight horse race coming down the stretch. In my opinion we’ve never had a Bachelor or Bachelorette feel so deeply for the final three. This goes a long way in saying what a great job Emily has done in narrowing it down to three great guys and just how solid Sean, Jef and Arie really are.

We headed off to the beautiful little island of Curacao for the final two weeks of the show. One of the great things about this show is that it takes us to places I never would have thought to go myself. Curacao is exactly that kind of place. It’s a beautiful island off the coast of Venezuela with great people and we all truly enjoyed our time there. READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' episode 8

I hope by now you’ve heard the great news that the finale for this season will be a three-hour event — including the live After the Final Rose special — airing Sunday, July 22nd. The next day, Monday July 23rd will be the premiere of Bachelor Pad 3. We’re in production on Pad right now and it’s amazing. But before we jump too far forward let’s talk about the hometown dates and how Emily is holding up as we head down the home stretch here. After some incredible travel around the world we were all happy to be back in the good ol’ USA. The first stop on the hometown dates was with Chris in Chicago. The minute you saw Chris and Emily together you could tell there was just something a little off about them and their usual chemistry. Is it just me or did Chris’ dad kind of accidentally set his son up for the fall by telling him Emily said she was falling in love with Chris, when it turns out she never really said anything close to that? Chris is twenty-five years young. Now, that’s only a year younger than Emily but they are really in different places in their life. It didn’t really seem in the end that Chris is ready to provide what Emily is looking for, especially when you stack him up against the three other men remaining. READ FULL STORY

See Nathan Fillion as you've definitely never seen him before -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

In the big, bold world of officially licensed geeky fan paraphernalia, there are few images we’ve come across at EW that are more impressive than this Nathan Fillion-approved image from QMx. Taking its inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man — and I also personally see some of Fillion’s Capt. Mal Reynolds from Joss Whedon’s beloved by short-lived sci-fi series Firefly — it needs to be seen to be believed. Check it out below:  READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' episode 7

This was my first time to visit the historic city of Prague. Prague is one of those places I had heard so much about and I was sure that there was no way it could live up to all the hype. Amazingly, it not only lived up to the hype, it far exceeded it — and it quickly became one of my favorite cities in the world. Between the history, the beauty, the culture and the people, the city has a lot to offer no matter how old you are. We shot the opening scene at the Royal Palace and Church that sits at the top of a hill overlooking all of Prague. We didn’t shut the square down, but we were fortunate while shooting that morning the streets were virtually empty. The best part was right in the middle of shooting we were treated to a private performance of the changing of the guards. I was staying with the guys at this cool little rock and roll hotel called Aria, while Emily stayed at another hotel just around the corner from us. READ FULL STORY

Hear the first song from Cyndi Lauper's new Broadway musical 'Kinky Boots' -- EXCLUSIVE

Have you heard the one about the drag queen and the shoemaker? Those are the central characters in the cult 2005 British comedy Kinky Boots,  the latest movie to get the Broadway jazz-hand treatment.

The song will be available for free download starting June 22 at 10:30 a.m. on the show’s official website.
