'The Bachelorette': Chris Harrison explains the show's handling of Eric Hill's tragic death

Fans of The Bachelorette have now seen how the show decided to handle the tragic death of 31-year-old contestant Eric Hill, who fought for Andi Dorfman’s heart before dying of injuries sustained in a paragliding accident. The accident occurred in April 2014, after Hill had already left the show, but figuring out how to honor Hill’s time with Dorfman was something the show did not take lightly.

And as viewers saw in the season premiere, Hill’s passing was addressed immediately, with a quick dedication, before the show kicked off, still featuring Hill as one of the 25 men competing for Dorfman’s heart. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelorette': Chris Harrison compares Andi's season to Juan Pablo's, teases 'so many guys falling for her'

Chris Harrison is confident that Andi Dorfman will win over the hearts of pretty much everyone. “If you weren’t before, I think you’ll quickly become an Andi fan,” Harrison said. And starting tonight, that theory will be put to the test when Andi — the girl who told Juan Pablo it wasn’t “OK”  — embarks on her journey to find love.

We caught up with Harrison to talk about how Andi has approached the experience and what viewers can expect from the lawyer who can’t dance:

Chris Harrison: The death of 'Bachelorette' contestant Eric Hill will be handled with respect

The cast and crew of The Bachelorette season 10 have been mourning the loss of contestant Eric Hill, who died of injuries sustained during a paragliding accident last month. As the May 19 premiere approaches, host Chris Harrison says producers are now trying to figure out the best, most respectful way to deal with the tragedy on the show.

“It’s a horrible, horrible thing. He was taken away too young,” Harrison tells People. “It’s something we’ve never dealt with on the show. It didn’t only affect our cast, but also our crew who worked closely with him.”

Harrison says Hill was “a big part of the show.” The 31 year-old had already shot his scenes for Bachelorette Andi Dorfman’s season when a parachute failure led to his death. “We all took a moment to step back and reflect and respect Eric and his family,” Harrison says. “We wanted to really take it all in and let ourselves mourn a little bit.” READ FULL STORY

Countdown to the 'Bachelor' finale: Chris Harrison, Juan Pablo butt heads over Clare in deleted scene -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

All right Bachelor fans: We are five days away from what ABC is promising will be an explosive and contentious season finale. To celebrate, we thought we’d start the fireworks early and show you some of the scenes that got cut from this season’s roller coaster ride of love. Starting now and going through Monday, we will release a new, never-before-seen deleted scene each day. Buckle up, rose lovers: This ride isn’t over yet!

For day one of our countdown, we have a clip of Chris Harrison and Juan Pablo discussing this season’s most talked about moment: Juan Pablo’s late-night swim with Clare. At the rose ceremony, just after Juan Pablo left Clare in tears, Chris confronted him about how the Bachelor “devastated” Clare. As Chris put it: “You really think Camila’s going to be upset if she found you swimming at night?” Suffice it to say that Juan Pablo’s answer didn’t exactly put Chris at ease.

Is this the first time in Bachelor history that Chris really doesn’t like the guy sitting across from him? Decide for yourself by watching below.

So, will you accept this video?

'The Bachelor': Chris Harrison talks Juan Pablo's firsts

Spoiler alert! With Juan Pablo’s season of The Bachelor officially under way, we grilled host Chris Harrison for a few teases of what’s to come. Here’s what we got out of him:

• Every season has a first, so what’s Juan Pablo’s? A hint: “It’s more to do with Juan Pablo and the fact that he is not a drama guy,” Harrison says. You’ll see already in episode 2, when some of the girls start partying, he’s like, ‘That’s not me. If you’re here for that, you need to go away.’ He doesn’t like the drama, and when drama’s thrown in his face, he kinda pushes back, and he kinda has a little bit of attitude about it. That can even turn some of the girls off. You see from the first episode, with Sharleen — that’s the first time we’ve had a first impression rose almost turned down. She thought, I’m not really feeling thunder underneath my feet, and I’m not really seein’ fireworks — I thought there’d be more. So we kinda lift the veil a little bit that there’s more to a guy than abs and a cute accent. There better be more depth. These women deserve that. This is a really strong group, and so they’re as demanding as he is.” READ FULL STORY

LAX shooting: Celebrities live tweet from scene

The shooting drama at the Los Angeles International Airport on Friday resulted in a surreal influx of live reporting from the most unlikely combination of celebrities: From The Bachelor host Chris Harrison to members of Discovery’s Mythbusters gang to actor James Franco. Even the filming of the final season of AMC’s Mad Men was apparently disrupted.

A gunman open fired in the airport this morning, killing a TSA agent, according to CNN. A suspect was taken into custody after being pursued through Terminal 3.

Harrison tweeted from nearly the beginning of the action, “Somethin crazy goin on at LAX right now. Terminals shut down & cops w guns drawn!” and then TSA just shut the doors in lockdown. Shooting over at Terminal 3 … Police very polite but guns drawn & very serious about clearing the streets on the top level of LAX. Everybody very calm & respectful… Incredible response by LAPD & airport authority. This place was locked tight w precision quickly. God bless first responders!.”

Franco was sitting on a plane at the airport when the shooting took place, and posted on Instagram: “At #lax Some s–tbag shot up the place.”

Fox Sports analyst Bill Reiter tweeted: “First came the gunfire. Then people including me hiding our seats. It felt very Columbine. A new kind of fear, at least for me” and “It’s weird how in that moment time could be so fast and so slow at the same time. My God.” READ FULL STORY

'Bachelor' host Chris Harrison teases tonight's Tierrable episode (and more ambulances to come!)

Tonight’s episode of The Bachelor (ABC, 8 p.m. ET) has everything the show is known for: tension as Tierra and everyone Robyn clash, an ill-conceived group outing that results in someone needing medical attention, a “Pretty Woman” date, and another love-conquers-all-fears adrenaline escapade (and a contestant with intimacy issues kicker). We asked host Chris Harrison for a few teases:

• The roller derby date: “Roller derby was, I think, in the line of many bad ideas for dates where people get hurt. It reminded me of the Muay Thai boxing [during Ashley Hebert's Bachelorette season] where we’re like, ‘How about if everyone just beats each other up,'” Harrison says, with a laugh. “Then they start doing it and getting hurt, and we’re like, ‘This isn’t such a good idea.’ It’s a really physical date, a really rough date. First of all, Sarah is on this date, and physically, she has trouble overcoming that with only one arm. There’s that dynamic, and then literally, the girls are just falling on their butts and it hurts, and it’s not fun, and it’s not sexy, so Sean has to readjust the date on the fly.” (This is not the craziest group date we’ll see this season, Harrison notes: “You just have to wait one week later, and you’ll see the craziest thing. I can’t believe they did it. I will tell you that we are in Lake Louise, Canada, and it’s really, really, really cold. And then the date gets colder,” Harrison says, laughing again. “When you mix naked with cold, that’s a tough combination.”) READ FULL STORY

'Bachelor': First look at Sean Lowe and his 26 'ladies' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

After Emily and Jef imploded, you’d understand if Chris Harrison was starting to lose faith in his own TV show. But quite the contrary! He’s positively giddy about new Bachelor Sean Lowe, whose quest for “love” begins on Jan. 7. “He’s a phenomenal guy,” Harrison says. “Gorgeous guy and super grounded. He’s that diamond in the rough, the guy from middle America you otherwise might not know about.”

Yeah, yeah, enough about the guy. We care about the ladies, and here is an exclusive first look at all 25 of them… uh, make that 26, including the secret bachelorette who will be revealed during the season premiere.

'Bachelorette' Ashley Hebert's wedding will be televised

For fans still reeling from Emily and Jef’s breakup this should help lessen the sting: Bachelorette Ashley Hebert’s upcoming wedding to J.P. Rosenbaum will be televised on ABC, the network announced today.

Hebert, who chose love with Rosenbaum during her cycle of the dating show in August 2011, will participate in a whole wedding extravaganza. The special will include dress fittings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and of course the big day itself. The best part? The ceremony is being officiated by Chris Harrison.

Hebert is the second Bachelorette to make it to the altar. Funnily enough, Trista Sutter, who was the first, also filmed her wedding for a television special, as did Bachelor Jason Mesnick. If it ain’t broke…

The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.’s Wedding will air Dec. 16 from 9-11 p.m.

Below, Harrison reveals why he found this season “scary” but now thinks it may be the best to date. Then, EW offers an exclusive clip showing an uncomfortable confrontation between two showmancers that sheds some light on why even a 10-year franchise vet like Harrison found Pad‘s season-ender “hard to watch.”  READ FULL STORY
