Bobbleheads of Bachelor Host Chris Harrison Unveiled
MILWAUKEE – This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled two officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead of Chris Harrison, the host of ABC’s hit romance/reality franchise “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” The first bobblehead features Harrison standing on a rose-shaped base holding a removable rose that can be replaced with a real rose. The second bobblehead features Harrison sitting on a chair next to a bouquet of roses and a group of candles, which light up. The bobbleheads are being produced and sold exclusively by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in conjunction with Chris Harrison.
The bobbleheads are only available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store and are expected to ship in February. They are $30 each or $50 for the set of two bobbleheads plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order.
Harrison has hosted “The Bachelor” since its debut in 2002 along with its spin-offs “The Bachelorette” (since 2003), “Bachelor Pad” (2010-12), “Bachelor in Paradise” (since 2014), “Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise” (2015) “Bachelor Live” (2016), “The Bachelor Winter Games” (2018), and “The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons – Ever!” (2020).
When not reminding breathless viewers that “This is the final rose tonight,” the 49-year-old Dallas native has been busy in the entertainment industry. In 2015, he took on hosting the nationally syndicated game show “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” through 2019 and received Emmy nominations as Best Game Show Host in 2018 and 2019.
A former college soccer player who began his career as a sports reporter, Harrison also co-hosted ABC’s live coverage of “The Miss America Pageant” from 2011-17. Additional credits include hosting the “Emmys Red Carpet Live” and the “American Music Awards Red Carpet.” In a departure from his many broadcast endeavors, Harrison turned to the written page as he penned his first book – an emotional and suspenseful novel entitled “The Perfect Letter,” published by Harper Collins in May 2015. He recently partnered with Seagram’s Escapes to launch a new Tropical Rosé flavor.
In his spare time, Harrison plays soccer (as he did in college) and has become addicted to golf. 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.
When asked about getting his own bobbleheads Chris said, “I feel like I’ve finally made it by having a Bobblehead. These are so fun and the perfect addition to any dramatic event.”
“Chris Harrison has become one of the most beloved hosts on television and we think these bobbleheads will be a huge hit with Bachelor Nation,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “We’re excited to be collaborating with Chris on these unique bobbleheads that will become the centerpieces of watch parties across the globe.”
