'The Bachelor': Is Chris Harrison ready to leave the roses behind?

See also

"The Bachelor" is currently airing Juan Pablo Galavis' season on ABC, but a major change could be in the works for upcoming seasons of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" on ABC. On Thursday, Jan. 23, The Stir shared the latest news on Chris Harrison. He is the host of both of the dating reality shows for ABC, and he might be headed to a new show on the network soon. He is being considered for a co-host spot on "The View" on ABC. That series is Barbara Walter's morning talk show. If Harrison is selected, he would be the first permanent male co-host on the panel.

Chris Harrison has already appeared on the morning talk show, and his appearance was well received. It even landed him on some of the news shows on Fox News Channel for some comments he made. This definitely grabbed him some notice by those at ABC. Creating buzz is definitely a good thing. The series has been on the air for 17 years, and the producers are ready to shake things up by adding a man to the mix of women. A source said ABC thinks 'he would be a good fit' for the panel, according to Life & Style.

What would this mean for his hosting gig on "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" each year? The reality series keeps him very busy. He films two seasons and travels the world at least four months out of the year. Then, he spends another four to six months out of the year on television while the seasons air. "The View" is based in New York City. He clearly would have to make a choice if he was given the spot on the panel.

What do you think? Would "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" be the same without Chris Harrison? Who would they need to grab in order to replace him? Could a former contestant come in and fill his shoes?

"The Bachelor" will continue to air on ABC on Monday nights.
