During an episode of Extra she revealed, “I gotta say, I am [shocked]. I wasn’t expecting for it to happen, not after the announcement.” She added in “”It’s been 19 years and if you do watch the show we saw less and less of Chris. Nineteen years is a big accomplishment. Maybe that’s the case. We don’t know. Maybe they were ready to move on. Maybe Chris wanted to move on after all this.”
Although it’s sad to see the famous host leave, it’s a new beginning for him and the franchise. We wish Chris Harrison all the best!
