Chris Harrison you may no longer have a job after you leave The Bachelor But that doesn’t mean you have an urgent need for one! After all, according to new reports, the former Bachelor Nation host has received an exit package worth millions of dollars.
According to a new report from Variety, Harrison was offered around $ 10 million, which is the combination of his alleged $ 9 million exit deal and some remaining contract fees.

This comes after previous reports claiming otherwise, saying that their exit package was, in fact, a “significant eight-figure payment.”
Variety goes on to say that Harrison hired attorney Bryan Freedman, who previously also played none other than Gabrielle Union during his own drama with America’s Got Talent.
The attorney also negotiated Megyn Kelly’s ‘mega million payout’ when she left NBC News, so it made sense for Harrison to hire this particular celebrity attorney.

But, at the same time, Chris was hoping that he would be able to return to the franchise, since it supposedly took him a while to realize how big his scandal really was.
In the meantime, he apologized for his words and posted the following message on his chosen social media platform: ‘I have no one to blame other than myself for the way I spoke … I set the standards and I have to fulfill them. I feel it with every fiber of my being. “In excusing historical racism, I also defended it and invoked the term ‘woke up policemen’, which is unacceptable. I am ashamed of how uninformed I was. To the black community, the BIPOC community: I am so sorry. My words were hurtful. I am listening and I truly apologize for my ignorance and any pain it may have caused you. ”
The announcement that he was “ retiring ” from the Bachelor The franchise came two days after his apology.
