After leaving the reality television show, fans were interested in knowing more about the host’s lifestyle. He hardly made any public appearance since then and was busy with his personal life.

The Bachelor: Why Did He Leave The Show?
The Bachelor introduced Chris to fame and success. He has hosted 26 seasons of the franchise. Certainly, his departure left the fans with numerous unanswered questions. It happened in June 2021, when he landed into a controversy. Rachael Kirkconnell, the winner of Matt James’ season of The Bachelor, was in the headlines at confederate flag-related TikTok Videos. Fans slammed the beauty for attending a plantation-themed party. Chris defended her, saying there were 50 million people who attended the party. She was not the only one.
His statement infuriated the audience, and he faced backlash from the public. Following the same, Chris released an apology and took a break from hosting for some time. He was replaced by Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe for the July season of The Bachelor. Although Harrison promised to be back on the screen, he later announced that he was permanently leaving the show.
