Jimmy Kimmel to guest host 'The Bachelor'

Posted on

Jimmy Kimmel Live

Jimmy Kimmel’s set to guest host The Bachelor, which hopefully means that the jest that is The Baby Bachelor could actually be a thing one day. 

Jimmy Kimmel will take over the reins from Chris Harrison to guest host Monday’s episode of The Bachelor, aiding Bachelor Chris Soules on his journey to find “the one.” ABC teased that the late-night host will introduce the 18 remaining bachelorettes to what he calls his “Amazing Jar,” crash an intimate dinner, play a trick on Chris and Kaitlyn, andnaturallywind up in a hot tub.

He’ll also lead 12 of the contestants in a farm-themed relay race that includes milking a goat, shoveling manure and wrestling a greased pig. In a statement to EW, the network teased that “an underdog beats out a brash woman in top physical shape.”

The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
