Other sources, this time for Page Six, said that Spade was selected as one of the guest presenters due to the fact that he is a huge fan of the show.
In addition, because of his open fanboying, he has “built a cult because of the hilarious comments among other fans”.
This came after Warner Horizon and ABC Entertainment announced in March that Harrison would not moderate the Bachelorette following his controversial comments.
That being said, former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe have been selected to host Katie Thurston’s season, which is just around the corner and premieres on June 7th.
Regarding the controversy that led to Harrison’s resignation, the man defended Bachelor candidate Rachael Kirkconnell’s racist comments and asked people to show her some indulgence, which the public disliked.
The host later apologized for his words and announced that they would be leaving the franchise.
On Good Morning America he said, “It was a mistake. I made a mistake. I am an imperfect man. I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistakes don’t reflect who I am or what I stand for. I am committed to advancement, not just for myself, but for the franchise as well. I plan to be back and I want to be back. ‘
