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.

Ben FlajnikThe long-rumored news is finally official: Ben Flajnik is the next 'Bachelor.'

The 'Bachelorette' runner-up will appear as the new 'Bachelor' during the season finale of ABC's 'Bachelor Pad' on Mon., Sept. 12.

'The Bachelor' returns to ABC in January 2012.

According to ABC, the 28-year-old has been in love three times -- 'Bachelorette' Ashley Hebert was his third -- but has only proposed once ... on TV.

Here's how ABC describes Ben and his desire to find a wife:

"A rare, modern Renaissance man, Ben dabbles in a lot of hobbies and crafts, such as crab fishing, sailing, golf, skate boarding, surfing, playing piano and singing in a tribute band. He is also quite handy with a hammer and saw, and loves fixing and building things, as well as landscaping. The woman who will share his life will also have to share one of his other great loves: his Jack Russell Terrier, Scotch."

Ben FlajnikHe may have gotten rejected by Ashley, but Ben Flajnik has reportedly gotten a pretty sweet consolation prize: Becoming the next 'Bachelor.'

Life & Style reports Ben will suit up and hand out roses of his own when the ABC series returns. The 28-year-old Sonoma winemaker made it all the way to the finale, but lost out to J.P. Rosenbaum.

ABC has yet to confirm the news, but the show has a history of plucking contestants and making them stars of their own reality love search.

Ashley Hebert was rejected by Brad Womack on his second go-around on 'The Bachelor.' She was the second runner-up before headlining 'The Bachelorette.'
