Premium- The Bachelor -I See Your David Spade Hosting 'Bachelor In Paradise' & Raise You These 8 Names
It's official: Chris Harrison will not be going to Paradise this year. On Wednesday, it was reported that Harrison would be replaced as host of the summer show by a handful of "celebrity comedians," per Variety. And on Thursday, comedian David Spade seemingly confirmed that he'll be one of the new BiP hosts, sharing posts about his involvement on his Instagram stories. But what about the other comedians supposedly coming in?
According to Variety's original report, as of June 2, Spade was the only comedian who had officially signed on, but "offers to celebrity talent were still being considered," suggesting that Spade will not be hosting the entire season on his own. However, the report also insisted that no Bach alums would be filling in, which means no Wells Adams taking over for Harrison, and no former Bachelorettes.
The Bachelor franchise has amassed a ton of celebrity fans over the years, so the pool of potential guest-hosts just got a whole lot bigger.

And, let's be honest, Chris Harrison never really did much as host of BiP. Any celeb who guest hosts the show would have to be OK quarantining for days for just 5 minutes of screen time. With that in mind, here are eight celebs I think would actually make the sacrifice to host BiP.
