In this NEW interview with ET and Chris Harrison, he defends ABC for picking Brad Womack as The Bachelor instead of Chris Lambton (Ali Fedotowsky's season).
ETonline: A lot of us were really crazy about Chris L. and Craig R. from Ali Fedotowsky's season. Were those guys not in consideration? Did they not want to do it?
Chris Harrison: Those guys were all considered. That is one thing people have to understand. During Ali's season, we started thinking, "Who would be a good 'Bachelor' from this group?" And our casting department had been looking at people you don't know. We haven't used someone you don't know in a while, but we still have five to 10 guys that we start sifting through. But at the same time, during Ali's season, we were talking about Brad already. We got to the end with Chris L., who we thought at the time would be a good "Bachelor." But it turns out his interest wasn't that high. He wasn't sure he wanted to do that again with his life. I spent some time with him in Raleigh, NC, to kind of gauge his interest and I came back and called the ABC guys and said, "This isn't our guy."Read the full interview with ET here!
