As the host of The Bachelor and its spinoffs, Chris Harrison is privy to a LOT of dirt. Fortunately for us, he鈥檚 also ready and willing to share some of those nitty-gritty deets. In addition to weighing in on Rachel Lindsay鈥檚 final three suitors and explaining why we need to trust him when it comes to DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios鈥 upcoming Bachelor in Paradise reunion, the beloved TV personality is now revealing why The Bachelorette still makes him cry after 15 years with the franchise.

鈥淚 host so many shows, but this show touches me,鈥 Harrison told People at The Bachelorette: Men Tell All taping. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 why I come back and do it, because I care about these people. Rachel [Lindsay] and I went through this journey together. You can鈥檛 be this disengaged robot. When you鈥檙e going through it, I鈥檓 sitting across from this woman who鈥檚 bawling and putting her heart out, how do you not cry?鈥

The 46-year-old admits that the fact that he鈥檚 a father has also altered how he views the situation. 鈥淲hen I think of my daughter, when I come home and she runs and jumps in my arms, I cry like a baby. I never cry. Probably the first 30 years in my life, [I] never cried. All of a sudden you have a son and things change. But when you have a daughter, I know it鈥檚 a double standard and it even may be a little sexist, but it鈥檚 just different. They just get to you. They crush you in ways you never thought you鈥檇 be crushed.鈥

We hope Harrison has a box of tissues ready, because sadly, we鈥檝e got a feeling there鈥檚 far more heartbreak to come, both for Lindsay and her would-be suitors!

Are you surprised that Chris Harrison is so emotionally attached to the show and the Bachelors/Bachelorettes? Let us know @BritandCo!
