Monday night, Scottsdale viewers tuned in to see the Bachelor Pad premiere on ABC. After the show, host Chris Harrison stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about all of the hijinx and drama. Jimmy has been a great supporter of the show, and it will be hilarious for fans to get his comedic input and twist on the game.
Click on the video on the left-hand side of the page to watch Part 1 of the interview between Jimmy and Chris. Harrison admits that he has kind-of become what he detests, in championing a three-hour Bachelor Pad premiere, joking that he thought James Cameron was crazy when he insisted Avatar needed to be three hours. Chris even jokes about how much more of the Vienna and Kasey sex footage they could have shown, and laughs that they should have skipped the evening news and made the premiere four hours long.
Fans will enjoy this fun side of Harrison, who jokes that it wasn’t production that created such addictive drama, but ABC deciding they had nothing else to put on Monday nights anyway and gave Bachelor Pad 2 free reign of the evening. Jimmy and Chris joke about all of the guys who are addicted to the shows, including Clint Eastwood apparently. Harrison is hilariously self-deprecating and fans will enjoy watching the interview. Next Jimmy is compelled to bring up Bentley Williams from ABC’s The Bachelorette 2011, and they agree to consider Williams at least the second-cousin spawn of Satan.
Chris and Jimmy admit they are confused about what Bentley really wanted to accomplish, and Chris shares that he and Bentley never even had a conversation. Harrison says that things happened very quickly with the Bentley situation and while he never talked to him directly, he heard plenty. Once they got to Hong Kong, Chris says he stepped over the bounds of host and verbally slapped Ashley around a bit to shake her out of her Bentley aura. Luckily his pep talk seemed to work, as Hong Kong is where Ashley Hebert did finally see through Williams.
The banter between Jimmy and Chris is comfortable and fun, and this is great entertainment for fans of the show. Be sure to watch part 2 of their interview as well. Bachelor Pad 2 airs Monday nights on ABC. Tune in to ABC, Channel 15 in the Scottsdale area, at 7 p.m. every Monday to see who sticks around to compete for the $250,000 prize. You can also watch Bachelor Pad 2 online at ABC.com the day after the show airs.
