In light of COVID-19 and the delay of Claire Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette, ABC is airing weekly recaps of past seasons of the reality dating show, called The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons Ever!
Chris Harrison hosts the special weekly, and since social distancing orders are ongoing for television production crews in California, his segments are filmed from the comfort and safety of his own home.
Believe it or not, Harrison does not live in the Bachelor Mansion. Harrison’s website bio indicates that he lives in Southern California, likely in the Los Angeles area (where much of The Bachelor franchise is filmed). It reads, “He has developed a great appreciation for the weather and lifestyle of Southern California, and spends as much time as possible outdoors with his son, Joshua, and daughter, Taylor.”
Harrison’s Son Joshua Has Been Helping Him Film ‘The Bachelor Greatest Seasons Ever’ From Their Home
During the premiere of The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons Ever!, Harrison was sure to let fans watching at home that his socially distant filming crew consisted of only one person – his son Joshua. The two appear to be having a good time working on the home segments of the show together, and it seems like Harrison is enjoying the quality time with his son, who is set to start college in the Fall.
In May, Harrison posted a photo of his family’s at-home celebration for Joshua’s college decision day, featuring Harrison, his girlfriend Lauren Zima, and his children Joshua and Taylor. In the caption, he wrote, “Today is national college decision day for my son and the class of 2020. I’m sorry you all are celebrating this monumental day at home and that this hasn’t been the senior year you have earned. Congratulations to those making such a life changing decision today. Proud of you Joshua earning the honor and making the decision to attend #TCU.”
Harrison Has Been Quarantining With His Girlfriend Lauren Zima
Chris Harrison is currently dating ET’s Lauren Zima, and the two have spent their time in quarantine together.
Throughout their time in isolation together, the couple have shared funny and down-to-earth moments with their respective Instagram followings. In one post, Zima shared a text exchange between her and Harrison, writing, “If you aren’t texting each other from inside the house are you even #quarantining?”
In another post, she reflected on the beauty of their time together, in spite of the strangeness of the stay-at-home order. She wrote, “Last night we had a sunset and a cocktail and I felt real grateful for it all as complicated and strange as our daily lives have become, I take weighted solace in the moments that were wonderful before and are equally glorious now.”
Harrison and Zima started dating in August 2018, and went public with their relationship in January 2019. On Nick Viall’s podcast, Harrison discussed their decision to go from friends and colleagues to something more. He said, “At the very beginning we did have the conversation of, do we wanna do this?… When we met and when we actually went on a date and we could tell there was chemistry and we really liked each other and there was something there, then there was the conversation of, do we really wanna do this?”
The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons Ever! airs on Monday nights at 8/7c on ABC.
