Chris Harrison is the host of ABC's hit romance/reality franchise The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. He has also hosted all of the iconic series' spinoffs, including Bachelor Pad and the long-running summer hit Bachelor in Paradise, and its reunion specials and live finales.

Harrison continues to advance the entertainment industry through a variety of professional endeavors and his work ethic is tireless. In 2015, he took on hosting the nationally syndicated game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, for which he received Emmy® nominations as Best Game Show Host in 2018 and 2019.

Harrison also co-hosted ABC's live coverage of The Miss America Pageant from 2011 to 2017. Additional credits include hosting the Emmys Red Carpet Live, the American Music Awards Red Carpet, live television coverage of the final championship rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, just to name a few.

In his spare time, Harrison plays soccer (as he did in college) and has become addicted to golf. He has developed a great appreciation for the weather and lifestyle of Southern California, and spends as much time as possible outdoors with his son, Joshua, and daughter, Taylor.
