When Bachelor host Chris Harrison referred to Jubilee Sharpe as “complicated” during last week’s Women Tell All special, Amy Schumer — who has appeared on The Bachelorette and is an admitted fan of the ABC reality franchise — called Harrison out on Twitter. Asked about the interaction by The Hollywood Reporter, Harrison downplayed Schumer’s response, saying her comments amounted to some level of flirtation.
“I do think that Amy Schumer and I have a little thing,” Harrison said. “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.”
Added Harrison, “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.”

“There is nothing wrong with ‘complicated’ women Chris Harrison,” Schumer tweeted in response to the host telling Sharpe, “I know you can’t control how complicated you are.” Schumer continued, “You treated it like something she should fight. A woman shouldn’t try to be less complicated so as to hopefully attract a man. And she shouldn’t find value in herself just because a dude liked her. Come on bro.”
Finished Schumer, “She is smart and strong and a sergeant in the military. She lost her entire family and you say she must fight off being complicated.”
Ben Higgins makes his choice on Monday’s episode of The Bachelor, airing at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
