'The Bachelor's' Chris Harrison on the next 'Bachelorette,' Tierra and 'The Women Tell All'
"I don't think [Tierra] is a bad person. I think she is young, maybe misguided in certain ways," says Harrison. "I was hoping, a la Courtney or Michelle Money, she would see some of the errors of her ways. Usually people do that, they watch the show back and learn something about themselves ... I was surprised and maybe a little disappointed she didn't come back a little more contrite and apologetic. She really didn't come with that. It got a little awkward with her [and the other women]."
Another rather awkward reunion is between Sean and AshLee, the woman he just sent home on the show. Harrison says it's not so much emotional as it is confrontational, because AshLee wants answers.
"She was obviously a frontrunner, Sean will admit this himself at the 'Women Tell All.' It's interesting how blind-sided she was at that final Rose Ceremony in Thailand," says Harrison. "Later, she was able to see between Lindsay and Catherine, there were very different relationships."
As far as the next "Bachelorette" goes, the announcement is coming in just over a week. So, who is the star of the next go-round?
"Well, first of all, I am the star of 'The Bachelorette.'" Harrison cracks. Hee.
"I don't know if it's 100% a done deal ... I know as of the taping of the 'Women Tell All,' which was last Friday, we were still discussing who it was going to be," says Harrison. "It's close to being a done deal because obviously we're going to announce it in a couple weeks but it's not 100% yet."
He also gives a run-down of why he thinks some of the women would make a good Bachelorette.
On Sarah: "She is strong and amazing and she does have an incredible story. When you see her come back at 'Women Tell All' and see how articulate and well-spoken she was about her feelings and her thoughts on love, it would've been an easy choice. She would make a great Bachelorette."
On Dez: "Dez is that young, attractive Katie Holmes-looking girl next door. Kind of what this show was built on, finding that diamond in the rough ... the way she comes off on the 'Women Tell All' makes herself a great candidate."
On AshLee: "I think of anybody on the show, she showed that she's at a point in her life where she knows what she wants. She's a strong, beautiful woman. She'd be a good candidate as well."
"The Women Tell All" airs Monday, March 4 and the "Bachelor" finale airs Monday, March 11 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
