Chris Harrison Says Amy Schumer’s Bachelor Criticism Was Because Of Her Unresolved ‘Sexual Tension’

no title

Well she’s never going to be the next Bachelorette now, Chris.

Amy Schumer has made it very clear that while she is a fan of all things The Bachelor, she isn’t above calling out the show when it doubles down on its racist/sexist undertones.

After defending Kaitlyn Bristowe last season for sleeping with runner-up Nick Viall, the Inside Amy Schumer star once again voiced her opinion last week after host Chris Harrison made some questionable comments about contestant Jubilee Sharpe.

Well, in an effort to promote Monday night’s finale, Chris tried to clear the air during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

In response to a question about Amy’s beef, he said:

“We haven’t set a date yet for our date, but I do think that Amy Schumer and I have a little thing. There was, if not a little, maybe a lot of sexual tension built up. And I don’t think it was just me reading into it. I think she was reaching out to me. I’m excited about where this could go. This could be a match made in heaven. This could be my Bachelor moment.”

So just ignore all the constructive criticism Amy had to say and move on??

Patronize her with a joke about her being being a woman not in control of her feelings rather than an intellectual equal?

Not a great answer…

Make sure to watch The Bachelor finale tonight at 8 p.m. EST on ABC to see who Chris manages to upset next!
