Today, we are joined by Chris Harrison, the legendary 18-year host of ‘The Bachelor’ tv show. 

I’m curious how he got involved with the show, but more than that I also want to know what Chris’s life is like in general. It turns out he travels around the world filming, and even owns his own brewery.

We talk about the food we like to eat, the drinks we like to drink, and the sports we like to watch. 

The pandemic has turned every industry on its head and this is the case for Chris too. Filming for “The Bachelorette” had to be postponed, so instead they are releasing a special feature series. 

He explains to me the lasting impact this is going to have on the entertainment industry, and what they’re doing to adapt. 

”The BBQ culture in Texas, especially around Austin, is unlike anywhere around the world.” – Chris Harrison
