On Monday’s episode of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon toasted Bachelor’s Chris Harrison who officially left the reality franchise after 19 years as a host, as . first told you.
At the moment, Fallon joked, “Harrison picks up his résumé like: ‘Matchmaker with 19 years of experience and three successful couples, give or take?'”
“Harrison knew there was trouble when producers brought his suitcase to a meeting,” he continued. “In the finale, it gets uncomfortable when the limo driver pulls down the partition to show that it’s Chris Harrison.”
During his opening monologue, Fallon also touched the Bachelorette, who returned last night for a new season (led by Katie Thurston).
“I’m excited for this season because we see people spread viruses the old-fashioned way,” said the NBC late-night host. “That’s right. After being locked up for a year, the audience said, ‘You know? Meeting 30 strangers doesn’t seem so crazy anymore.'”
While most people are “fired” that the dating show is back, Fallon said it was important to remember, amid the drama, that The Bachelorette “is a staged show that is largely fake, like a boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul ”. . “
Then he shot at participants in Thurston’s season, including a “zipper sales manager” named Cody and a “surgical skin salesman” named Jeff. “If there’s one thing women like to hear on first dates, it’s ‘Well, I see human skin,'” he said dryly, referring to the latter.
