'The Bachelor' Host Chris Harrison Bummed Over Emmy Snub, But Excited for Betty White
Chris Harrison now knows what it feels like not to be handed the final rose! He was hoping to hear his name called on Thursday morning when the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy nominations were announced, but when that didn’t happen, the host of The Bachelor/Bachelorette didn’t hold back his disappointment.
"Ten years of Emmy snubs. I really wish the show would have gotten nominated," he told ETonline. "The Emmys itself is really political. We've never made a push. It's unfortunate. While it doesn't help your show or career like the Oscars or Golden Globes, it's definitively an ego thing."
While he’s a little upset over the situation, he’s not letting that get in the way of rooting for someone in the category he wanted to be a part of.
"We've been on the air longer than any show that's been nominated," he said, [but] "I'm voting for Betty White!"
In the meantime, the primetime ABC fixture has his sights set on bigger and better things. He has been a guest co-host on Live with Kelly and he’d love to make that his permanent gig.
“That is one of the greatest hosting jobs that has come open in my lifetime. The three jobs that have come open in my lifetime are Johnny Carson, Bob Barker, and Regis Philbin," he said. "It's fun to step into that vehicle and drive it. Like driving a Ferrari for a bit."
