Sean Lowe removed Bachelor from his watch list.
The romance series Bachelor lost one of its avid viewers after Sean Lowe said he would not watch it again. According to his wife, he decided not to watch it again after Chris Harrison’s exit.
In a report posted by Us Weekly, Lowe’s wife, Catherine Giudici, delivered the news during the event this week.
“I’m watching it. My husband is kind of boycotting it because of the Chris Harrison stuff,” she said. “But I’m watching it this season to support the girls.
She refused to tell more details about her husband’s decision to sit out from season 17 of The Bachelorette. However, it was not the first time she ever commented on Harrison’s exit.
Catherine Giudici wants Harrison back
In May, Lowe’s wife revealed that she wanted to see the original host return to the franchise again.
“I want to see him come back. I think he will,” she said. “I hope he does, because I know so many Bachelor fans out there rely on him to be the voice of The Bachelor.”
Giudici’s wish came after Harrison penned a lengthy statement, taking accountability for his actions.
He added that he failed to meet the standards he set for himself. He also expressed how shameful the events are for him, knowing that he was so wrong. The controversial host then invoked the term “woke police” and said it was never acceptable.
In another part of his statement, he said he is sorry to the Black and BIPOC community who became victims of his words.
Harrison took note that his mistakes should not overshadow the current season of The Bachelor. Thus, he said that he will be stepping aside and will not join the After the Final Rose special.
In the end, he exited the show with a $9 million payout on hand. Still, several Bachelor alums called him out for his comments.
Comedian David Spade took over his place.
It all started when Harrison defended Rachael Kirkconnell and her antebellum-themed party in 2018.
He also found himself in the middle of hot waters when he told NPR in 2015 that the show needed to cast white lead after another since he aims to put on people who others want to watch.
Amid his exit, he noted that he had the best run as the host of the long-time running show. He also remembered the friendships he made with the contestants and staff.
