Chris Harrison actually did something aside from create awkward moments on The Bachelor… he explained to People Magazine why they chose Nick Viall as the next man to try and find love on the reality TV show.
“He has just become that perennial, second place guy who wants to find love and is as sincere, if not more sincere, than anybody about finding it. It’s about giving him his chance to find love. Who deserves it more than him?”
By the way, Nick apparently broke up with GF Jen Saviano to be on the show.
