Amid rumors of leaving the show, longtime "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" host Chris Harrison is moving to Austin.


Page Six first broke the news this week that Harrison is building a home in the Barton Creek area. In light of this news, fan theories from this summer regarding Harrison leaving the franchise have been brought back for many of the show's regular viewers.

Gossip of his possible departure first came after he would missed several episodes this past season of "The Bachelorette" to see his son off to college in his hometown of Dallas; he was temporarily replaced by season 12 Bachelorette Jojo Fletcher. It marked the first time Harrison had missed any taping in his 20 years hosting the franchise, leading to the rumor he will be making his exit soon.

Despite the fear Bachelor Nation may lose its most prominent figure, Harrison has been very outspoken with his plans for the new season of "The Bachelor" and the rest of 2021.

It appears his move to the Lone Star State has quite a bit to do with the Dallas-based brewery, Steam Theory Brewing Company, he is an investor in. He follows various celebrities that are trading the bustling California life for the Hill Country like James Van Der Beek, Joe Rogan and possibly Elon Musk.

Former Bachelor contestant Nick Viall chimed in on Instagram to remind fans Chris Harrison can do his job from anywhere.

"Pretty sure he can do his job if he lived on Mars," he wrote. "Fear not Bachelor Nation. Daddy Harrison is going nowhere."
