CelebnReality247.com reports that Emmanuel Acho, an author and former National Football League player, will host a post-finale special of “The Bachelor”.
Mr. Acho, author of “Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man,” will host “After the Final Rose” after the show’s longtime host went on hiatus over comments dismissive of racism.
The news comes after the show’s longtime host, Chris Harrison, said he was “stepping aside” after he made comments that were dismissive of racism.
Mr. Acho, who wrote the book “Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man” and hosts a show by the same name, said in a statement that it was “both an honor and privilege” to host the hourlong special on March 15.
Emmanuel Acho took to social media to announce the news he is replacing Chris Harrison.
IT’S OFFICIAL: I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then! ? ??
Acho also gave some insight with an “About Me”:
I’m the author of the 2020 NYT bestseller, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man.” A book that answers all the racial questions you’ve been too afraid to ask. Go read it.
I also graduated from the University of Texas with a master’s degree, I played for 4 years in the NFL, and I currently host a sports show, @sfyonfs1.
Lastly, I love being a bridge for reconciliation. Our world is disconnected & divided, my goal is to unify.
Chris Harrison’s departure came after he defended racist actions by one of this season’s three finalists.
The Bachelor Matt James took it upon himself to address the troubling racism controversy following Harrison’s departure.

This is an incredibly pivotal episode on one of the most storied shows in television history.
However, Mr. Harrison, who is still listed as the show’s host on its website, apologized, writing on Instagram that his comments, like his use of the term “woke police” in defending Ms. Kirkconnell, were “unacceptable.”
In return, Bachelor Rachael Kirkconnell said “Stop Defending Me” amid racism controversy.
