Chris Harrison Explains That Controversial Choice on 'The Bachelor' Last Night

Chris Harrison is speaking to the backlash over The Bachelor producers’ decision to have all three finalists stay in the same hotel room – a move that hasn’t been done before on the show.

If you don’t know, the three finalists stayed in the same hotel room, seemingly to have Madison Prewett have to confront the other two women about their intimacy level with Peter.

Peter has trouble making decisions. I don’t know if you guys have noticed that,” Chris Harrison said on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast. “The king of kicking the can down the road. Heaven forbid you make a decision but, there are things that we do as producers that will force you into this uncomfortable zone and force you into making a decision. Sometimes we do it for your behalf, sometimes we do it for the Bachelor, the guys or the girls. And this situation was pretty extraordinary because Peter had kicked the can down the road, but this time also Madison had.”

“This was to force a situation that had to happen, and it had to happen this week because if we get to proposal week, then this guy is really screwed and there’s no chance this works. We gotta figure this out and there’s really only one way to do it. Yeah, it was tough love and it was really awkward and — again, as you know — in the history of the show, I don’t know if we’ve ever done this, but we decided to do it this week because these are conversations that needed to be had,” Chris added.

Chris continued, “It was because of, I think, the double standard in the things that Peter was gonna deal with. We kind of needed the women’s perspective on this. We needed Madison to face Victoria and Hannah Ann and have them express their emotions on this because, again, it’s just this guy and his perspective, and I don’t know if that’s the greatest thing right now.”

Here’s how fans reacted to The Bachelor‘s decision to have all the women stay in one location.
