So...This Happened

This one is for my fellow Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise fans. Ok, so imagine you are walking through an airport at the exact right moment. The moment when, out of the corner of your eye, you recognize someone that seems out of place. But familiar. Rather than run up to said person, gushing and stammering, you casually call out his name. You know. As if you went to high school together, maybe even the prom. He turns, expecting to see someone he recognizes, as opposed to a slightly disheveled stranger who has not yet had the chance to duck into a restroom and freshen up after a four and a half hour flight. Said person is generous and friendly and kind. And he quickly recovers from the shock and engages in conversation with the tired looking lady while her husband fumbles with her phone in search of the camera. He smiles and thanks you for being a fan. And then strolls away, all alone, with a back pack on his back. You would probably think it never happened, right? Yet...the proof exists. In a rather quickly taken iPhone picture in which he looks even more amazing than on television, and you look...well...like you just got off a looong plane ride. See picture below...

EEEEK!
I met Chris Harrison!
And he was so nice, so real, so normal.
I would have loved to sit and chat with him about some of Jo Jo's choices...
but I'm sure he had somewhere to be.
I was struck by his normalcy.
Don't people like him have like...people?
He was just walking through the airport like the rest of us.
Maybe that's why he is so relatable.
He spent a few minutes with us before strolling off.
I was so thankful.
But man...I could have questioned him for hours!!!!

  1. The funny thing is, when you do meet up with famous folks, I am always struck how normal they are or their height, LOL. smiles

  3. Love it! Sometimes Chris is definitely the shining star of the show. (Especially this season because I am not a fan of Robby or Jordan.)

  6. Oh my golly! How amazing is that, I'm not sure I'd recognize someone in the airport. I get so focused on where I need to be and what i'm doing I don't see anyone around me. Good for you miss eagle eye and how cool of him to humor a fan! I'd like to know what's up with Jo'Jo myself.
