Former NFL quarterback Jesse Palmer returns to ‘The Bachelor’.
He’s now hosting the 26th season, dating reality TV series.
The news was announced Tuesday by the show.
Palmer is no stranger to the dating show, after being on the show as “The Bachelor” himself in Season 5.
The former New York Giants quarterback already has a longterm relationship with Disney, as he has been an NFL analyst at ESPN since 2007.
Palmer is Replace Chris Harrison, who left in June after being criticized for defending the actions of “Bachelor” contestant Rachael Kirkconnell, who dressed in a costume at a antebellum plantation-themed fraternity in 2018.
Many found it offensive.
Since 2002, Harrison hosted “The Bachelor”, which was a reality TV show on ABC.
