Harrison has been the sole host of The Bachelor franchise since day one, launching the most popular dating show in 2002.

His departure comes following a media spectacle of a controversy that erupted when the longtime host made racially insensitive comments defending a contestant of the franchise.

Although he will be missed fans are excited for the new season of BIP along with the celebrity hosts!

Guest hosts will include David Spade, Tituss Burgess, Lance Bass, and Lil Jon.

David Spade, who is one of the stars set to be host for two weeks has been very vocal about his love for The Bachelor franchise throughout the years. Back in March, he made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he spoke about his love for the series.

Spade, 56, who is an actor, comedian, writer, and Saturday Night Live vet often covers the show on his Instagram account. He is also best known for being in the films Grown Ups, Joe Dirt, and Tommy Boy.

He can certainly “break the ice” on the show and poke fun at himself being the new host. Having such a love for the franchise Spade will definitely bring a fresh take on the show.

Actor and singer Tituss Burgess is ecstatic about his new co-hosting position on this season of Bachelor In Paradise. He’s thrilled that he’s going to spend his summer commenting on hot people hooking up.

In 2020, the 42-year-old became the host of the Netflix series Sing On! He also starred in numerous plays on Broadway like The Little Mermaid and Guys and Dolls.

Thanks to an exclusive from Page Six, we found out just how excited Burgess is about his new role as a host on BIP. Burgess told Page Six “Non-scripted TV is my guilty pleasure”. He also loves “the drama, the fun, the ‘reality’ and all the hot men – I mean all the hot people.”

Burgess is no stranger to the spotlight and fans are excited for him to bring the excitement, fun, and good times!

Former NSYNC band member Lance Bass will be new to Bachelor Nation, but he is not new to hosting gigs. In the past, he’s hosted radio shows like Dirty Pop with Lance Bass and Pop2Kountdown.

He has made multiple appearances on TV including his cat-fishing role on the The Circle season 2 played by his assistant. Bass also hosted the first-ever gay dating TV show, Finding Prince Charming in 2016.

With his expertise in helping others find love and being on TV we think he will fit right in on one of the best dating shows.
