Emmanuel Acho announced he will be hosting “The Bachelor: After The Final Rose” while Chris Harrison is at home brushing up on his Black history.
You may recall Chris took a much-needed hiatus from hosting the popular dating show after he defended and excused the past racist actions of “Bachelor” frontrunner Rachael Kirkconnell.

Emmanuel excitedly took to social media writing:
IT’S OFFICIAL: I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then! 🌹 ❤️
Emmanuel Acho also shared a brief bio:
I’m the author of 2020 NYT best seller, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man.” A book that answers all the racial questions you’ve been too afraid to ask. Go read it.
I also graduated from the University of Texas with a masters degree, I played for 4 years in the NFL, and I currently host a sports show, @sfyonfs1.
Lastly, I love being a bridge for reconciliation. Our world is disconnected & divided, my goal is to unify.
