Just try and change my mind! David Spade hosted Bachelor in Paradise for the first 2 weeks of the show (since long-time host Chris Harrison left the franchise disgracefully) and I would sign any petition to make him the permanent host of the series, or at least host of Bach in Paradise. He was casual, comfortable, funny, knowledgable, and most importantly, didn’t take the show so seriously. He made jokes about the things fans joke about instead of attempting to convince viewers this was going to ACTUALLY be the most dramatic season ever. He had fun with it.
At the end of week two of BiP, Joe Dirt said his goodbyes and the icing on the cake was his exit interview in the SUV as they drove him away from the resort. His funny interview was in a way, mocking every exit interview that any rejected contestant has ever had, but it wasn’t mean or shaming any contestants. He just came across very chill, kind, and genuine… but also really funny. The tease in week 2 shows Lance Bass (of *NSYNC fame) as the host for the next episode (airing tonight) so we’ll just have to see how that goes. He’s already got a high bar coming into the episode.
David Spade was great, and I propose that he become the full time host of the show! Of course, he would never agree to this, but who’s with me??
