“Bachelor” host Chris Harrison has been the host of the show for 12 years and it has taken him from a regular host to the master of romance. However, it sounds like he wants love for all people, no matter if they are straight or gay. He hasn’t been too vocal about Juan Pablo’s recent comments, but he is now speaking out about his stance on gay marriage. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Jan. 26, “Bachelor” host Chris Harrison is now revealing that he doesn’t stand behind Juan Pablo’s comments on gay people.

"I took a long time to think about it," he revealed to The Hollywood Reporter. "I was disappointed in his comments, and they obviously don't reflect my feelings or my thoughts on the subject." It sounds like he doesn’t want to be associated with anti-gay individuals. Craig Robinson, a former “Bachelor” alum, also spoke out. "I don't know Juan Pablo, but the comment he made was beyond disappointing. I 100% support gay rights, and I am sure that my friends in the Bachelor community feel the same way," he has revealed.

But Chris does have some defensive comments about Juan Pablo. "[Y]ou have to respect his freedom to say or do whatever he wants," Chris concluded about the controversy. Juan Pablo has issued an apology and people have accepted it. "Everyone knows English is my second language, and my vocabulary is not as broad as it is in Spanish, and because of this, sometimes I use the wrong words to express myself,” he revealed in a statement.
