Chris Harrison Apologizes on 'GMA', Says He Plans To Return To 'Bachelor'


Embattled 'Bachelor' host Chris Harrison was on 'Good Morning America' Thursday morning with Michael Strahan to apologize in the wake of the racism controversy surrounding him. However, it didn't appear that Strahan was fully convinced of Harrison's apology.

In his first public interview, Harrison told Strahan that he's an "imperfect man" and that he "made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn't reflect who I am or what I stand for. I am committed to the progress, not just for myself, also for the franchise."

Harrison was apologizing for statements he made in an early February interview with former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay, in which he was accused of, and later admitted to, defending racism.

While Harrison said he was "committed" to changing himself and the franchise overall, Michael Strahan didn't seem 100% convinced of what he was saying, calling the entire thing a "surface response."

'GMA' also reported that Chris Harrison is working with a "race educator and strategies" as well as a clergyman.

One of the biggest surprises? Harrison says he's not going quietly in terms of the franchise. He told Strahan that he plans to be back and wants to be back, and that "this interview is not the finish line."
