Tony Harris Campaigns For 'Bachelor' With Support Of Kaitlyn Bristowe

Karen de Wilde

Viewers saw Tony Harris, known as Tony the Healer, take himself out of the running for Kaitlyn Bristowe on Monday night's episode of The Bachelorette, but that may not be the last time that the franchise's viewers will see of him. After watching the episode, Tony posted a video in which he wished the other guys and Kaitlyn well and promised that people will see more of him.

Wearing a T-shirt with the slogan, "Will you accept this rose," Tony reflected on his time at the mansion.

"Hey everybody it's Tony. Just got done watching the episode, The Bachelorette. Wanted to thank everybody for the opportunity. Truly went in with the best of intentions, not only for myself but for everyone else. Obviously it didn't work out that way. So wish everybody else on the show the best of luck, and Kaitlyn also. You all deserve everything that is in your future. So again just wanted to say thanks. Stay tuned. Cause this is not the last that you'll see of me. This love revolution has only begun."

"I have to give it up to the guys for being brave enough to let it all hang out and really go for it on this date. The only one that really had a problem with this was Tony. So yes, Tony is an interesting cat. My favorite Tony moments this week were when he told Kaitlyn he views the world through the eyes of a child, has the heart of a warrior, and the spirit of the gypsy. I'm not real sure what most of that means, but that's okay. This just wasn't Tony's cup of tea, so he packed his bags and left."
"As for the date itself, my intention was to just have some fun. At no time did I think things would ever get violent. It was supposed to be about laughing at yourself in a man diaper, having a blast and practicing the art of sumo. I understood Tony's point about violence – and, sure, a nice nature walk is a lovely way to fall in love – but love is also about having fun and trying new things. Loosen up, Tony! Even I got out there and went up against Yama. Piece of cake. Don't underestimate my size. I kick crazy sumo butt... Seeing Tony standing there that night didn't surprise me. I think it was best he left because I wanted to focus on the guys that wanted to be there, and I was just excited to spend more time with the awesome group of guys I had left."
