Chris Harrison's New TV Gig Has 'Bachelor' Fans Asking One Big Question

Chris Harrison

Gah. We've always hoped if he ever decided to take on another reality TV gig, he'd wind up being The Bachelor as opposed to hosting the show. But get a load of this one -- Chris Harrison is set to host Who Wants to Be a Millionaire once the new season premieres in the fall.

Of his new venture, Chris said:

There are few shows on television as strong and iconic as Millionaire. This is a great fit and I'm extremely excited and honored to take on this new endeavor.

I know, I know, you're probably stressing over the same thought that first entered all of our minds upon hearing this news. Does hosting the new show mean Chris is kicking his Bachelor days to the curb?

As of now, it certainly doesn't look that way. Supposedly he has no plans to stop his run over at The Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise, though he's definitely going to have a full plate once Millionaire is thrown into the mix.

I mean, I'm sure the extra wads of cash in his pockets will be kind of a bonus, but man, it's kind of surprising that Chris would so much as think of giving up a schedule where he only works for like 6-weeks at a time and then has a huge chunk of time off.

Of course, the more he works now, the less he'll have to bust his a** a few years down the road, so I guess we really can't blame him for seizing such a huge opportunity.

As for how he'll fare as host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Please. This one is in the bag!

Are you excited to watch Chris as the new host?
