California — Amid controversy surrounding an interview Bachelor empire host Chris Harrison conducted with renowned horticulturist Gina Thornsbury in which Chris suggested that the use of red roses is meant to signify their superiority over other colors of roses, the popular host is facing serious backlash. The interview took place only days after a photo surfaced of Chris tossing a yellow rose into a trash receptacle, while plugging his nose with a free hand in a way that suggests any rose that isn’t red must be inferior and stinky.
Twitter lit up with “Bachelor nation,” as fans of the show are called, and critics alike blasting Chris and show producers who seem to pick roses that all look the same, and always include a few with thorns. Those loyal to the show have had growing concerns that the show has yet to incorporate white, yellow, or pink roses on a more regular basis, some even asking why only roses are used in the ceremonies.
“Roses are red, violets are blue, why can’t the show include violets, too?” Twitter user @Trinity5932 asked.
Always looking for a way to boost ratings, producers unanimously voted in favor of a twist in the recent Monday night episode of the Bachelor. As current Bachelor Matt handed out roses to possible mates, Chris came out on queue to announce, “Matt, ladies, this is the final rose of the night. Matt, when you’re ready.” It was then that Matt broke from the typical routine, taking Chris by the arm and feeding him to the hangry, savage women who had been standing there for hours. A beat-up Chris Harrison emerged from the frenzy, embarrassed and with clothes torn only to be asked by Matt, “Can I walk you out?”
During his in-car exit interview, Chris admitted that he had fell in love with the attention he got from running this show along with the 17 other spin-off shows he hosts… or more accuratley, hosted. He sniffled as a broken apology came forth, appearing to backtrack on his comments about red roses being superior, but also promising he will seek help from the local botany shop.
Until a permanent replacement can be found, future episodes will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest.
