Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst Emmanuel Acho will host The Bachelor: After the Final Rose, filling the vacant spot left by former The Bachelor host Chris Harrison.

Acho will replace Harrison, who stepped aside from hosting duties following his divisive comments in an interview with contestant Rachel Lindsay. In the Extra interview, Harrison defended Rachael Kirkconnell who came under after photos of her attending an antebellum plantation-themed fraternity party in 2018 resurfaced on the internet.

“It’s both an honor and privilege to be hosting ‘After the Final Rose.’ This is an incredibly pivotal episode on one of the most storied shows in television history,” said Acho.
