Chris Harrison Officiates Wedding Of Bachelor Producers

Chris Harrison isn’t just a host- he also officiates weddings!

Producers Cassie Lambert and Pete Scalettar met while working on Matt Grant’s season of  The Bachelor in 2008.   The  two tied the knot in Malibu on Saturday with host Chris Harrison as officiator!  Says Harrison:

“It might be a new job for me,” Harrison said of getting ordained to officiate the couple’s wedding. “They asked me in Prague this season [of The Bachelorette] when we were there if I would do it for them. … I love them to death and I’ve seen then grow as a couple and I love them as a couple and as individuals. I’m taking [officiating] very seriously…we went over everything for the ceremony and I’m really honored. I’m honored they would ask and I’m honored they would allow me to be such a huge part of their day.”

Neil Lane, who has done the rings for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette proposals, designed their engagement and wedding rings, and newest Bachelorette Emily Maynard was in attendance! Talk about a star-studded wedding…a reality star-studded wedding! And that’s not where it stops. Says People:

The guest list looked like a who’s who of Bachelor couples, that included Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik, newlyweds DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano as well as Rosenbaum and Hebert and Maynard and Holm (who, according to an eyewitness, were constantly whispering to each other and being affectionate during the ceremony). Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky, who split with Roberto Martinez last year, also attended.

Talk about life reflecting art…er, television!

Chris Harrison says Roberto Martinez is not confirmed as the next Bachelor.

The rumors over who will be the next Bachelor on ABC’s hit reality show are already spreading.

One person on the tip of everyone’s tongue is hottie Roberto Martinez.  However, host Chris Harrison is making it clear that Roberto has not been cast on the next season of the Bachelor just yet.

“I will confirm it, he’s not the Bachelor, we’ve not named anybody to be the Bachelor yet,” Harrison told in an exclusive interview at the ESPN The Magazine ‘Body Issue’ launch party in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.

“We don’t need to, we don’t name anybody so early,” he explained. “I love the speculation and that people are talking about our show but we just don’t need to make decisions yet.”

Of course, this doesn’t mean that Ali Fedotowsky’s former fiance won’t be picked for the part further down the casting process, as the longtime host is notoriously close-lipped about leaking secrets on the show, but he did give Roberto his seal of approval if he is chosen.

“He is a great guy, I love Roberto. First of all I hear he’s stunningly handsome, and he’s a very nice guy, he has a lot to offer and would be a great Bachelor. I would put my vote behind him but luckily I don’t have a vote,” he laughed.

As previously reported, even Ali claims she would be OK with the casting move, recently telling Wetpaint Entertainment, “I just hope he’s happy.”

Harrison hinted that the ABC producers may still pull a rabbit out of their hats and go with a completely fresh face for the show. “We would absolutely have an unknown again,” he told Radar.

“We are always casting and we are always scouring the country and the world for new people. If we found someone who we thought was a home run and he was an unknown we would absolutely make him the Bachelor,” Chris explained.

While he is coy about Roberto, one thing Harrison was very open about was his excitement of Bachelor Pad 3, which he promises will be raunchier than ever.

The Bachelor Pad premieres on July 23 and it is so good. I love it!” he gushed.

“It is such a guilty pleasure even for me to host, and this season — unlike last year where everyone was coupled up early —  was mayhem. Just get a cheap box of wine and sit back and enjoy,” he advised viewers, emphasizing a box, and not a bottle of vino!

I do remember Roberto from Ali’s season.  He was one gorgeous man!  I wouldn’t mind him as the next Bachelor.  Or even Sean from Emily’s season.

Who would you pick for the role?

New Bachelorette Emily Maynard: I’m Really Happy Now!

New Bachelorette Emily Maynard liked her life pre-Bachelorette, but now she is REALLY happy!

Though she won’t disclose more details about her Bachelorette season, she did dish to about her daughter, life and the search for true love.

On The Real Emily: “The guys came in having an image of me in their head but as they got to know me better, they all said, [I was] nothing like they thought I’d be and that it was a good thing. I’m feisty and sassy. It takes a little bit for me to really feel comfortable but I’ve never been called ‘boring’ in my normal everyday life.”

Which Guys Got Noticed Right Away: “I loved Ryan’s note. That was sweet and endearing. Jack rolling in on a skateboard was so cool. Even the cheesy ones were great icebreakers because you are so nervous. But Travis with the egg was a tough one even in the moment. And some of the guys who didn’t make the strongest first impression really surprised me.”

Emily’s Dating Style: “If I was a single 26-year-old without a daughter back home, I’d be doing the same things the other Bachelorettes did. But Ricki is at the forefront of my mind with dating and everything. I wouldn’t get in a hot tub on a first date in my everyday life so I sure as hell am not going to do it on [TV].”

On Explaining the Cameras to Ricki: “I like to keep her sheltered. She’s not at an age where she can even begin to understand the reason for the cameras. I told her it was for a very elaborate home video that she could watch way down the road. … Ricki’s life was not really affected at all. She was very protected throughout the entire process. She didn’t see the guys. I got to spend a lot of time with her, take her to school and do all my mom stuff.”

Chris Harrison Getting Divorced!

Bachelor host Chris Harrison is now a bachelor himself!

The host, who was chosen to be the masthead for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette franchise for his strong marriage, called it quits with wife, Gwen, after 20 years.
Sources say the split was very friendly, and the two are looking forward to having a close relationship for their two children.  Harrison, 40, sure did make the marriage last a long time (in Hollywood terms), but I’m still disappointed at this news.  What do you think-  will he keep hosting? Will he be on the show?
