In Monday’s episode of Tonight’s show, Jimmy Fallon roast The baccalaureate Chris Harrison, who officially left the reality TV franchise after 19 years as a host, as Deadline first told you.
Right now, Fallon joked, Harrison “edits his resume as ‘Matchmaker with 19 years of experience and three successful couples, give or take?'”
“Harrison knew there were issues when producers brought his suitcase to a meeting,” he continued. “It’s going to be awkward in the finale when the limo driver pulls down the bulkhead to reveal it’s Chris Harrison.”
During her opening monologue, Fallon also touched on The bachelorette in particular, who returned last night for a new season (led by Katie Thurston).
“I’m excited for this season because we are seeing people spreading viruses the old fashioned way,” said the late night NBC host. “That’s right. After a year locked inside, viewers were like, ‘You know? Dating 30 strangers doesn’t seem so crazy anymore.’”
While most people are “excited” that the dating show is back, Fallon said it was important to remember, in the midst of the drama, that The bachelorette is “a staged show that is mostly fake, kind of like a boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul”.
He went on to photograph Thurston’s season contestants including a “zipper sales manager” named Cody and a “surgical skin salesman” named Jeff. “If there’s one thing women like to hear on a first date, it’s ‘Well I see human skin’,” he said, referring to the latter. .
