Everything is coming up roses for Jesse Palmer. The former NFL quarterback has been named the new host of The Bachelor, replacing Chris Harrison.
Palmer is no rookie on The Bachelor playing field, having starred in the series in the leading role in Season 5, back in 2004.
He's also has quite a cozy relationship with The Walt Disney Company, which owns ABC. He's worked on ESPN as a sports commentator, was a special contributor on Good Morning America and is now hosting the summer series The Ultimate Surfer. He also hosted The Proposal in 2018, another reality series created by The Bachelor head honcho Mike Fleiss.
Palmer says, (quote) "I am humbled by the opportunity to return to the show as host this season to offer the newest Bachelor advice gained from firsthand experience and I am grateful to play a small part in his journey.” (Variety)
