This past season of “The Bachelor” certainly kept Harrison on his toes. the chaos that was the Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson relationship caused heated debate among contestants and fans (the couple, by the way, is still together). Harrison, ever the diplomat, admitted that while Robertson's behavior wasn't always the best, particularly when it came to the other contestants, she and Flajnik still had quite the connection.

“There's something to her relationship with Ben,” Harrison told People magazine. “They have this quirky common bond.”
Harrison even kept his cool when he was accused by a former “Bachelor” contestant of engaging in less-than-stellar behavior. Rozlyn Papa, who vied for the heart of Jake Pavelka on the show's 14th season, was kicked out of the running after it was discovered that she allegedly had an affair with a married producer who worked on the show. later, during the “Women tell All” episode, she accused Harrison of flirting with that same producer's wife. Harrison told her he would not “dignify that” with a response.
“My wife, who I've been with since I was 18 and have been married to for over 16 years, was in the audience that night and got as big a laugh out of Rozlyn's comment as I did,” he later wrote for Entertainment Weekly.
Now it's being suggested that the franchise host should be the next star of “The Bachelor” (a tempting thought, to be sure, but highly unlikely).
Harrison will host the upcoming season of “The Bachelorette.” the newest star is single mom Emily Maynard, who first appeared on “The Bachelor” and won the final rose from Brad Womack. her latest shot at finding love premieres on May 14.
