‘The Bachelor’ Host Chris Harrison Compares the Presidential Debate to This 1 Episode and Fans Say He’s Not Wrong
The Bachelor host Chris Harrison deals with his fair share of drama on the series, and it’s spinoffs. Fans call the Presidential Debate between President Donald Trump and Vice President Joe Biden “the most dramatic Presidential debate” ever. Harrison agrees and compared the debate to this one episode that happens every season on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
What happened during the debate to make it ‘the most dramatic debate ever’?
Many news outlets are calling the presidential debate on Sept. 29, 2020, “chaotic.” According to CNN, President Trump interrupted Biden on almost every question. Both Donald Trump and the former Vice President even stuped to name-calling.
The drama was so terrible that the commission, which oversees the debates, said it would make changes to the remaining arguments’ format.
“The CPD will be carefully considering the changes that it will adopt and will announce those measures shortly,” the organization told CBS News. “The Commission is grateful to Chris Wallace for the professionalism and skill he brought to last night’s debate and intends to ensure that additional tools to maintain order are in place for the remaining debates.”
One possible change might include turning off President Trump and Joe Biden’s microphones if they interrupt their opponent. Even Chris Harrison has not had to mute a contestant.
Chris Harrison compares the Presidential Debate to ‘The Bachelor’ Tell-All episodes
In a tweet on Monday night, the long-running host of The Bachelor made a joke comparing himself to the moderator of the debate — Chris Wallace.
“Chris Wallace now knows what it’s like to host #TheBachelor Tell All specials. Good luck!” Harrison tweeted.
Bachelor Nation quickly chimed in, suggesting that Harrison “could have done a better job than Chris Wallace.”
The fans also pointed out that the host can handle 25 or more men, while the moderator only had to manage two. If you need a refresher, the “Tell-All” episodes consist of all of the rejected contestants hashing out the never-ending drama that made up the season. Sometimes there is yelling and name-calling, but Harrison keeps control of the situation.
Fans point out that Harrison makes an appropriate comparison
Bachelor Nation took the comment to Reddit, where they debated whether or not Harrison’s remark was “tone deaf” or “funny.”
“In my opinion, it’s not really tone-deaf because the comparison is apropos,” one fan wrote. “Both are dealing with casts composed half of self-interested reality stars who make most of the noise and then someone who is maybe there ‘for the right reasons.'”
Some fans upvoted the comment that suggested President Trump is a “self-interested reality star.” Others laughed at Harrison’s statement, whether there was a double meaning or not.
“That was actually pretty funny,” another viewer wrote. “The ‘Tell Alls’ do seem like debates, lol.”
The nation is anxious to see if the next Presidential debate will resemble a reality TV show, or if the new changes will make things better.
