For years, host Chris Harrison has gone through season after season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette as young men and women find love. Right now, he’s going along on the journey with JoJo Fletcher as she searches for the man of her dreams. Once all is said and done, there is a happy couple, and Chris Harrison ends another season as the host of one of TV’s most successful shows, but now he wants to find a love of his own.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the new and upcoming season of The Bachelorette starring JoJo Fletcher. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
The host of these ever-popular reality shows is one that knows a lot of things about being a great husband, and he’s learned a lot of awesome skills over the years.

He has spent so much time setting people up and working on the relationships of other people that he has hardly had time for his own. He told The Daily Beast a while back that he was simply waiting for someone to set him up.
Mind you, Harrison doesn’t use Tinder or other dating sites, so he’s not meeting any women online. He has not dated any of the women from either show, and that’s letting a lot of eligible women pass him by, but he’s hoping someone is looking out for him.
“I wait for people like you to say, ‘Oh my gosh, I have the greatest person.'”
Chris Harrison has not always been alone, though. He married Gwen Harrison many years ago, and she happened to be his college sweetheart. They have two children together, but in 2012, after 18 years of marriage, they announced they would be separating.
Since then, he’s been one of the most eligible bachelors but just can’t seem to find the right girl for him.
He realizes that there are some issues of his own which are responsible for him being single for this long. The man has a very busy schedule and a work ethic that just won’t let up long enough for the 44-year-old to date as much as he would like to.
“I need to quit working a little bit and maybe work on my own life for a little bit.”
One of the main things in his life is his children. His son Joshua is now 14 and his daughter Taylor is 12, and he has made sure that “they’re good” which is why he’s looking for love again. With them being taken care of, a little bit older, and able to understand things more, he’s ready to meet that special someone again.
“…I would love to find love now. Look, as you can tell by the book and by the show, I’m a hopeless, helpless romantic just like everybody else, so hopefully I’ll follow my own advice one day.”
One would think that Harrison knows all there is to know about love and the ways to make a relationship work. Maybe he does and maybe he’s ready for one, but his priorities are his children and making sure that he has enough time to devote to someone before getting involved with them.
Right now, Harrison is helping JoJo Fletcher find love. For those that have read the spoilers from Reality Steve, you know that she’s already found it in Jordan Rodgers since her season has already finished taping.
Yet another successful relationship match-up for the host of some of the most popular shows on television.
Chris Harrison once had his true love and for almost two decades, they knew that they had truly found the one. Unfortunately, life just happens sometimes, and for the last six years, he has been searching for his true love and someone with which he can spend his life. The host of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette can’t help but hope for a love of his own as he’s now helping JoJo Fletcher find the man she wants to call her own for all time.
