Chris Harrison's Emotional Rides Hosting 'The Bachelor' and 'You Deserve It'

chris harrison who do you think you are It's hard to believe that it's been nearly a decade of roses, tears and broken engagements, but Chris Harrison, who's been the face of 'The Bachelor' franchise since it began in 2002, promises that the upcoming Season 16 will be the best yet -- with a little help from a grandmother named Sheryl, of course.

"We might have outdone ourselves this season," Harrison told AOL TV. "I will say this about the grandmother that gets out of the car: It made for a fun, sensational ad, and obviously, it worked because people are talking. But people should know that we would never take up a spot on the show as a cocktail joke. It definitely was funny, but it has much more meaning than you see in the ad. There's something very sweet and romantic about it."

After a decade of tearful drama, Harrison switched it up in November and debuted a new feel-good game show, 'You Deserve It,' where each week, a contestant tries to win money for someone in their life who they would like to reward. Okay, so maybe there will still be some tears.

A School Teacher Plays 'You Deserve It' For a Widowed Friend (VIDEO)

'You Deserve It'ABC is back in the game show business, but their latest entry has a philanthropic twist. In 'You Deserve It' (Mon., 9PM ET on ABC), contestants participate in the quiz show with all of their winnings going toward someone else. Someone in their life who they think deserves it.

It creates a whole different kind of anticipation and tension, especially because they're not letting the recipient of the winnings know how things are going until it's all over. But for the player, they get that sense of doing something wonderful for someone they care about.

Who Took Home the Money on the 'Bachelor Pad' Season Finale?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 13th 2011 7:00AM
'Bachelor Pad' castSo, it was the season finale at last on 'Bachelor Pad' last night. Time to pack away the thong bikinis and swim trunks as one lucky couple was awarded the $250,000 grand prize. For the others, it was rejection time. (Again.)

And the winners are: Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano. Yes, the on-again off-again couple walked away with the win despite the fact that Holly has already gotten engaged to housemate Blake Julian after a whirlwind romance.

That's right, she's engaged to Blake, and if you didn't already know that before the finale then you weren't alone. Michael didn't know either.

Bachelor Pad finaleAnother tear-stained season of 'Bachelor Pad' has come to a close, filled with more fights, more feuds, and more than a few revelations (even though many of them were ruined by the media long before the episode actually aired).

Jake and Vienna, Vienna and Kasey, Melissa and Blake, Blake and Holly, Holly and Michael, Erica and gavel -- it's hard to keep track, but by gum, I tried!

Summer is most certainly over and we have blah-blah-Ben to "look forward to" as our next 'Bachelor,' so let's savor the trashy triumph of 'BP' while we still can and look back at the top five most awkward moments from the 'Bachelor Pad' season finale.

Ashley & JP, 'The Bachelorette'We realize that the siren song better known as 'Bachelor Pad' has probably already erased any memory of this season's 'Bachelorette' and the man she chose to marry ... but that doesn't mean Ashley and JP don't still want headlines.

The new issue of Life & Style Weekly has the exclusive scoop that Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum have already picked out their wedding rings, just a little over a week after the 'Bachelorette' finale.

"They're so excited to get married that they didn't want to wait on this detail," an insider tells Life & Style, confirming, "They already selected their Neil Lane wedding bands."

Despite the fact that the 'Bachelorette' couple isn't planning to tie the knot until 2012, they visited the Manhattan outpost of Neil Lane, jeweler to the stars, in early August.

Keep reading for more details on the wedding bands, and to find out what host Chris Harrison is planning for their wedding present ...

Emily Maynard is Not the Next 'Bachelorette' (Yet)

Emily MaynardIt seems as though the rumors of Emily Maynard's continuing reality TV stardom may have been premature. 'The Bachelor(ette)' host Chris Harrison has shot down reports that the newly single Maynard is in the running to be the next 'Bachelorette.'

Harrison told 'Access Hollywood' that "Rumors of Emily being the 'Bachelorette' are greatly exaggerated. It is way too early, way too presumptuous of anybody to say she's 'The Bachelorette'."

He added that, "As far as TV goes, we don't go into production on 'The Bachelorette' for six more months. We would never pigeonhole ourselves ... this early."

Emily Maynard, 'The Bachelorette'Emily Maynard came back to the mansion where she met Brad Womack on 'The Bachelor' to talk about and confirm their break-up. The interview aired as part of 'The Bachelorette' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC) and saw Maynard adamant in her support of Womack.

"I'll always be in love with Brad," she told Chris Harrison. "No one will ever hear me say a bad word about him, nor will I tolerate anybody else saying anything bad about him."

So be careful what you say in the comments, as Maynard may be reading and she will not tolerate any Brad-bashing!

Michelle Money Breaks Down in Tears From the Other Girls' Attacks on 'The Bachelor' (VIDEO)

Chris Hansen & Michelle Money, 'The Bachelor'Michelle Money polarized fans of 'The Bachelor' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC) when she was still on the show, and on 'The Women Tell All,' she had the other rejected women from this season still up in arms about her behavior in the house.

Of course, Michelle says she's misunderstood and is just the victim of bad editing.

But there was no editing of any kind when Michelle finally cracked under the barrage of verbal abuse coming from the women when Chris Harrison was trying to ask her questions. Stacey Queripel seemed to take particular delight in calling Michelle's parenting skills into question.

"I don't know how you were brought up, but in my family, it kind of goes something like this," she said. "You put your child first and, I'm sorry but I felt like you put you first."

Perez Hilton Is 'The Bachelor' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Jimmy Kimmel "previewed" the new season of 'The Bachelor,' revealing the new star to be the openly gay celebrity-gossip blogger Perez Hilton. "I've never had any trouble attracting women, but for some reason, things just haven't clicked," Hilton said innocently on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

During a pillow fight with the bachelorettes, he says, "Careful with my hair, b----!" Later in the commercial he serves one contestant a beer while he drinks a pink cocktail, and at the rose ceremony he discreetly pinches host Chris Harrison's butt.

Who Is the Winner of 'Bachelor Pad'?Welcome to the two-hour season finale of 'Bachelor Pad' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). Yes, it was the last episode of the season for the reality show that brought backstabbing and infighting to a whole new level. Heading into the finale, we had three couples remaining.

But only one person could win the $250,000 grand prize. ... Or so you would think.

[Spoiler alert.]

'Bachelor Pad': Kovacs and Elizabeth Mess Around on Top of a Car (VIDEO)

'Bachelor Pad': Kovacs and Elizabeth Mess Around on the Top of a CarThings got a little skanky on the latest 'Bachelor Pad' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). And by "skanky" we mean that we've reached a "rolling around and making out on the trunk of a car" level of sluttiness. It's all courtesy of Elizabeth and Kovacs, one of our four final couples on the show. (Though by the end of the night, the number of couples would be paired down to three.)

[Spoiler alert.]

Before we even reached this point, three of the "excess" ladies were booted from the show. It came as no big surprise that they were all women who hadn't "coupled up" with a dude. So, Nikki, Gwen and Ashley were eliminated early on. That left us with four couples -- who then had to play a game of "water balloon catch" to see who would win some roses and a "special date."

Who Has the Worst Fake Boobs on 'Bachelor Pad'? (VIDEO)

Who Has the Worst Fake Boobs on 'Bachelor Pad'?The new installment of 'Bachelor Pad' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC) was all about asking the tough questions. Luckily for us, at least one of these questions involved the important issue of fake boobs.

... But before we get to that, we have a tiny question of our own. It involves an issue that we sometimes wonder about when watching reality TV. And our query is this: "Hey, is it possible for a reality show to be too mean to its players?"

It seems like the creators of 'Bachelor Pad' are never too troubled by this thought. Especially based on the events that took place during tonight's show -- which was kind of a brutal marathon of humiliation. By the halfway point of the episode, most of the female contestants were already in tears.

Lovers Wes and Gia Are Separated on 'Bachelor Pad' (VIDEO)

Lovers Wes and Gia Are Separated on 'Bachelor Pad'There's no type of romance that lasts for less time than a romance on a reality show. Even the average lifespan of a mayfly lasts longer than a relationship on reality TV. This is a lesson that has been hammered home over and over again.

[Spoiler alert.]

And on the newest 'Bachelor Pad' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC), we get to learn this lesson once more. Contestant Gia has a boyfriend back home. But now, she's falling for fellow housemate Wes. It seems that Wes sang a song to Gia, and that made Gia become all fluttery in the heart, romance-wise. (It also made her temporarily forget about her old boyfriend.)

Body Painting in Bikinis on 'Bachelor Pad'"Everybody wants to be an artist," says 'Bachelor Pad' co-host Melissa Rycroft. But on this new, fairly skanky reality show, "art" takes the form of rolling around in paint, while wearing bikinis ... and a Speedo.

Here's what goes down on the latest episode (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). "Weatherman" (and former 'Bachelorette' contestant) Jon Novack wins a date with three of the ladies in the house. These women are: Gwen, Peyton, and Ashley.

Melissa then announces that this date will be "artistic." What artistic means in practice is body painting. And so, Jon and his dates romp around in skimpy swimwear, while splashing paint on each other.

'Bachelor Pad' Premiere - Michelle Traps Tenley in the Bathroom and Makes Her Cry'Bachelor Pad' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC) is a spin-off of 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette.' It features 19 rejected contestants from those two shows. The premiere of this series throws them all together in a single house, with conveniently located bunk beds -- in an effort to see which girl or guy will sleep with someone first.

Naturally, drama results. Of course! Manufactured drama is the only real goal of this show. And so ... Michelle gets in a little fight with Tenley.

Apparently Tenley started a rumor that Michelle had messed around with Craig. Michelle's reaction to this was to trap Tenley in the bathroom and scream at her.
