Chris Harrison Is Reportedly Being Paid Around $50 Million to Leave ‘The Bachelor’ Quietly

Although Chris Harrison will be leaving The Bachelor franchise behind, his wallet surely won’t be hurting. According to Deadline, the host for the past 25 seasons will be quietly stepping down with a “mid-range eight-figure payoff”…which means he’s being handed something around 50 million to not do this job for the rest of his life. Seems like a sweet deal! If you’re wondering why it’s quite so much, Deadline has some intel there too: Reportedly, the payoff is in exchange for him not just leaving, but leaving quietly and not giving further commentary on his exit. The fact that Harrison is supposedly being paid this much to quietly step down after he was involved in a huge controversy has us wondering just how much dirt he had on the series after all.
