It appears Chris Harrison won’t be returning to hosting duties for “The Bachelor” franchise anytime soon. According to Variety, in addition to skipping the new season of “The Bachelorette,” premiering June 7, Harrison won’t be onboard for this summer’s season of “Bachelor in Paradise”; comedians, including David Spade, will guest host. Harrison stepped aside amid backlash over comments he made in February, defending a contestant who had been photographed at an antebellum-themed fraternity party in 2018. Harrison has said he is working to educate himself on race issues, and hopes to return to the franchise he has hosted since 2002.

Fox is a minority owner in the company that owns the USFL.
