Chris Harrison has learned a lesson.
“I felt like I didn’t go far enough in talking to [Ashley] about Bentley,” Harrison says. “Yeah, I warned her and I took some steps. But I don’t think I went far enough.”
Now Harrison is taking firmer steps to prevent a repeat with current Bachelor Ben Flajnik. In a preview of next week’s episode, Harrison arrives in Panama City, where Ben is wooing the women, to drop a bomb that apparently leaves Casey Shteamer bawling.
“There’s something that happens with Ben in Panama, where I got to kind of, you know, rectify that situation and do the right thing,” Harrison explains. “In that speech to him and the girl that’s involved, I actually said, you know what, I made a mistake [last] season, so I’m not going to do it here.”
So what could be the trouble? A recent post on the show’s Facebook page may contain a clue: “Soon it will be revealed that one bachelorette still has a boyfriend … Who do you think it is?”
