Apparently Blake reached out to Katie when Matt cut her. Also, Nick revealed Matt was onset when he was there.
He is too good for this show. They asked him more than once, but he wouldn’t agree until talking to his in-laws and getting their blessing. https://people.com/tv/the-bachelorette-michael-allio-didnt-want-join-show-without-full-approval-late-wife-parents/
I’ve hated Curtis Stone since he was on Celebrity Apprentice where he was a mean boy, rolling his eyes and encouraging others to mock Bret Michaels who, although some of his ideas were off the wall, was hardworking, genial and very kind.
Yeah, his wife was a good, supportive partner. I felt for him. It was easier for him when he was a victim of a weird accident than being born defective. But huge improvement especially with the breathing. Hope it fixed his headaches too.
It is nice having the female hosts to support Katie. And maybe a male host for the Bachelor.
As for CH, I don’t know that another network would want him right now. He spent 19 years hosting various Bachelor shows. He may be too associated with the Franchise. Also, he is tainted now. He needs a few years to pass and for someone else to take centre stage with a scandal....or just enough time to pass.
