Character Bio

Chris Harrison, Host photo
Chris Harrison began his television career by covering local sports in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Dallas, Texas native went to Oklahoma City University on a soccer scholarship, and then made the natural transition to sportscasting with a local station. During his six years there, he worked his way up the ranks from part-time sportscaster to weekend sportscaster. He also had the opportunity to cover hard news stories, including the 1995 tragedy at the Federal Building, an event which profoundly affected his perspective on life and career.

A visit to L.A. in 1999 for an audition for a horseracing network led to a permanent move. Later that year, Harrison landed the job as host of HGTV's Designer's Challenge, which was consistently one of the network's highest rated shows. In 2001 he became host of ABC's hit romance/reality series The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. He also has hosted ABC's popular reality show, Bachelor Pad, the "all-star" reunion from previous seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, in 2011 and 2012, and will host the newest addition to the Bachelor franchise, Bachelor in Paradise, during the summer of 2014.

Harrison continues to advance in the entertainment industry through a variety of professional endeavors. He co-hosted ABC's live coverage of The Miss America Pageant in September 2013, as the show returned to the pageant's birthplace Atlantic City, New Jersey. He first hosted the iconic broadcast on ABC in 2004. Additional hosting credits include Emmys Red Carpet Live at the 2012 Primetime Emmys; ABC's 2011 American Music Awards Red Carpet; live television coverage of the final championship rounds of The 2010 Scripps National Spelling Bee on ABC; ABC's 2008 American Music Awards Red Carpet Live!, and Road to the 60th Primetime Emmy(r) Awards, ABC.com's daily coverage leading up to the 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards. In 2008 Harrison moved to TV Guide Network to not only cover all the major awards shows, but also host the network's one-hour weekly entertainment show, Hollywood 411. In 2010 he announced the creation of his own production company, Harrison Productions, and that he will continue to host and executive-produce all of TV Guide's red carpet shows, which started with the Emmys in 2010.

The versatile Harrison has done his fair share of acting as well, with roles in the popular television series Alias, The Practice, Six Feet Under and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. His feature film appearances include Bounce, Showtime and portraying himself in the comedy Date Movie.

In his spare time Harrison still plays soccer and has become addicted to golf. He has developed a great appreciation for the weather and lifestyle of Southern California, and spends as much time as possible outdoors with 11-year-old son, Joshua, and 9-year-old daughter, Taylor.
