When Bachelor host Chris Harrison and his college sweetheart, Gwen, announced their divorce in 2012, the level of schadenfreude coming from critics of the reality competition was almost sentient in its force.
Harrison, however, is all too aware of the irony of his situation – he's even able to crack jokes.
After anchoring a whopping 19 seasons of ABC's juggernaut franchise, Harrison, 43, knows that having his ex-wife as the next Bachelorette would be "epic television, good or bad," as he told GQ for their January issue, on newsstands now. "It could be like the Hindenberg – the greatest disaster ever – but even that would be great TV."

America has to wait a little longer to find out who the next Bachelor will be, but fan favorite Chris Soules may have dropped a big hint during Monday night's finale of The Bachelorette.
The sweet farmer from Iowa attended the taping of After the Final Rose, and though it was announced a new bachelor wouldn't be revealed, Soules – who was let go by Andi Dorfman two weeks ago – turned bright red and laughed nervously when the discussion launched.
Fans would certainly be happy if he's indeed snagged the spot. The soft-spoken contestant won over hearts when he was revealed as Dorfman's secret admirer throughout the season and further stepped up the romance game by telling her he was in love by hiring a plane to fly over his hometown date.

Time to break out the bouquet of roses and pop some champagne – The Bachelorette is back, and if the premiere is any indication, Chris Harrison's promise of "the most dramatic season ever" may be accurate.
On this season's quest to find love is Andi Dorfman, the Atlanta-based assistant district attorney who famously dumped Juan Pablo Galavis after a "nightmare" fantasy suite date (and his overuse of the phrase "It's okay") on the latest installment of The Bachelor. This time around, Dorfman, 27, is faced with 25 eligible men – and they pulled out all the stops during their first night at the mansion.

After the death of The Bachelorette contestant Eric Hill, producers are left mourning the loss a friend and struggling to figure out how to handle an unprecedented tragedy.
"It's a horrible, horrible thing. He was taken away too young," host Chris 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."
Hill, 31, had already shot his scenes for the upcoming Andi Dorfman season when he died of injuries sustained when his parachute collapsed while paragliding in Utah last month.

Monday night's shocking finale of The Bachelor left some viewers perplexed and dissatisfied with Juan Pablo Galavis, who refused to say that he was in love with his final rose recipient, Nikki Ferrell. Host Chris Harrison and Juan Pablo's fellow franchise alums, newlyweds Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici, were among them.

Chris Harrison is ready to move on from Juan Pablo Galavis's controversial season of The Bachelor – and the feeling is mutual.
"We're done with the show. We are so done," Juan Pablo told the host during the live After the Final Rose special, which aired Monday night after he broke up with finalist Clare Crawley and offered the final rose to Nikki Ferrell but did not propose in a shocking finale episode.
Harrison and the studio audience seemed perplexed as to why Nikki could say she was happy and "absolutely" still in love, though she hadn't heard Juan Pablo say he's in love with her.

This week, The Bachelor fans can expect double the episodes and more than double the drama, according to host Chris Harrison, who spoke with PEOPLE Wednesday.
Juan Pablo met the families of the four remaining ladies on Monday night's hometown dates edition. Then on Tuesday, the final three travel to St. Lucia for the exotic overnight dates.
Harrison wouldn't describe either experience as "smooth sailing" for our lover with a language barrier.

I have to admit, things are getting real on The Bachelor.
Vietnam, a wonderful country that I never thought I would visit.
I definitely wanted to take Renee on my first one-on-one date. Back in L.A., when I first saw her in the mansion, Renee was standing in the back of the living room. She wasn't trying to grab my attention, she was just being herself and I felt that she was exactly like me when I was on The Bachelorette. I knew she came to see if I was the man of her life.
Renee (along with Cassandra) is one of my special ones because she is a mom. I definitely didn't want to waste her time because she was away from her son, Ben. My first date in Vietnam was exploring the city of Hoi An and I thought it was the perfect chance to see if something was between us.
