For the first time since The Bachelor franchise launched, Chris Harrison will no longer host the upcoming season The Bachelorette.

“Chris Harrison won’t be hosting the next season of ‘The Bachelorette’,” said Warner Horizon and ABC Entertainment. “We support Chris in his work. In his absence, former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will support the new Bachelorette until next season. As we continue the dialogue for greater equity and inclusion in the ‘The Bachelor’ franchise, we aim to improve the BIPOC representation of our crew, including among the executive producers. These are important steps in making fundamental changes so that our franchise is a celebration of love that reflects our world. “- Warner Horizon and ABC Entertainment
