Chris Harrison not returning as host on ‘The Bachelorette’

Published

on

Washington [US], March 13 (ANI): Amid his ongoing racial controversy, Chris Harrison will not return as a host on the American reality show ‘The Bachelorette’.
According to Variety, Chris will be replaced by the former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe.
ABC Entertainment and Warner Horizon released an official statement confirming the news. “Chris Harrison will not be hosting the next season of ‘The Bachelorette’. We support Chris in the work that he is committed to doing,” the statement read.
“In his absence, former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will support the new Bachelorette through next season,” the statement continues.
“As we continue the dialogue around achieving greater equity and inclusion within ‘The Bachelor’ franchise, we are dedicated to improving the BIPOC representation of our crew, including among the executive producer ranks. These are important steps in effecting fundamental change so that our franchise is a celebration of love that is reflective of our world,” the statement concluded.
Variety reported that the production of the next season is set to roll out sometime next week in New Mexico.
Adams, the franchise’s most recent Bachelorette, and Bristowe, who led the 2015 season, have been tapped to fill in the hosting duties left vacant by Harrison.
However, neither Adams nor Bristowe have been named as ‘host’ or ‘co-host’, which indicated that the doors might be open for Harrison’s return in the future.
Harrison has been in a raising scandal for sustaining bigotry through his critique protecting disputable ‘Bachelor’ competitor Rachael Kirkconnell, who experienced harsh criticism when old photographs of her re-surfaced on social media, showing her in participation at an Old South ranch themed club party.
She also liked pictures on social media containing the confederate banner and was blamed on TikTok for tormenting a schoolmate for dating a Black man.
As per Variety, Kirkconnell — who remains a frontrunner on the current season of “The Bachelor” — has since apologised, stating, “I was ignorant, but my ignorance was racist.”
The discussion hit an edge of boiling point, when Harrison plunked down for a meeting on ‘Extra’ with former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay, trying really hard to take a stand in opposition to the ‘woke police’ and proposing that Kirkconnell’s photographs were not hostile when they were taken in 2018.
In the midst of the establishment’s aftermath, Lindsay had temporarily deactivated her social media accounts because of extreme internet harassment. In their lone public assertion in the midst of the continuous debate, the executive producers of the Mike Fleiss-created series released an official statement to condemn the hate and support their former star, who was the first Black Bachelorette in 2017.
Variety quoted that the 2020 Bachelorette and 2021 Bachelor seasons likewise appeared to be generally assorted projects, with 25 ladies from the current Bachelor season identifying as BIPOC. In the background, more makers of colour were employed and a variety of team was acquired as an asset for both the talent and crew.
With the production effectively in progress, the franchise gives no indications of easing back down. The impending ‘Bachelorette’ season will follow the outline spread out by the bubble seasons of the 2020 ‘Bachelorette’ and 2021 Bachelor cycles, which each shot securely and with no COVID occurrences in the midst of the ongoing pandemic. A lead for the same is still under the wraps.
Variety reported that ‘The Bachelor’ will wrap on ABC Monday with a two-hour finale to conclude James’ season, followed by a one-hour ‘After the Final Rose’. (ANI)

Coming back to Twinkle’s post, it garnered a lot of love from social media users. “Beautiful pic,” a netizen commented. “Hahha…such cute photo,” another one wrote. Along with the throwback image, the former actor expressed her thoughts on nostalgia. “Nostalgia is akin to the red and white Phantom cigarettes of our childhood. Like all sugary treats, it may prove detrimental as a daily habit, but it could provide occasional respite. A way of transporting ourselves to a time when we felt loved and safe, and sometimes, oh so cool, as we inhaled the minty smell of a candy-stick held between our lips. Nostalgia reminds us of not just how we lived, but what it was like to thrive,” she captioned the post.

NIKKI TAMBOLI SHARES HER EXPERIENCE IN KHATRON KE KHILADI

Published

on

Nikki Tamboli gained popularity after Bigg Boss 14, and was recently seen in Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 (KKK). Nikki was the first contestant to get eliminated after she was unable to perform the stunt. Nikki Tamboli spoke to The Daily Guardian about her Khatro Ke Khiladi journey and other projects.

How was your experience of being a part of Khatron Ke Khiladi? -I love to take up new challenges in my life so Khatron ke Khiladi was one of the most challenging experience for me. Every moment in Khatron Ke Khiladi was an experience. I had a phobia over most of things.  I tried to face them but unfortunately could not even face it. Though it was a short journey for me but I loved everything about the show. From Rohit sir to my fellow contestants, it was indeed an amazing experience!

Your Journey in KKK11 though short but was extremely entertaining how would you describe that ? Yes it was a short journey. When I performed my first stunt I had got an intuition that I won’t be able to go further. I was scared and could not manipulate my mind to do the stunts. I had to keep it entertained as did not want the audience and fans to get bored and wanted them to laugh and enjoy. Overall it was an amazing journey. Which stunt do you think was the most toughest one and why? It would be my elimination stunt as I did not know how to hold my breath underwater and perform the stunt which was really tough as I have never done something like before and I had panicked. I thought I’ll perform the stunt but as soon as I went in the water catfish and snakes were put on me which made me panic more. It was too dangerous.

Who was your favourite contestants from KKK11 who you think can win the show? My favourite contestant is none other than Arjun Bijlani and we share a good bond. Vishal Aditya Singh and Shweta Tiwari are also those who deserve to win. But my favourite would be Arjun. You already gave 3 hit songs what are the other upcoming projects on your list ? I am waiting to shoot for the songs which are lined up. I have also signed a Bollywood film and a south Indian film as well. I am also planning to be a part of webseries and tv shows. Fingers crossed.
