Here’s How Chris Harrison Found Colton After He Jumped the Fence on ‘The Bachelor’

Chris Harrison just opened up about Colton Underwood’s infamous fence jump on The Bachelor and confirmed that it was far less dramatic than it appeared on TV.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 47-year-old host discussed the highly anticipated moment and revealed that it didn’t take long for the 26-year-old star to surrender.

“He didn’t come back on his own, but we found him because… he gave himself up, in a way,” Harrison said. “He’s not a good Liam Neeson. He’s not Rambo.”

Although Underwood claimed he was gone “for quite a bit,” he soon realized that he didn’t fully think it through.

“Chris was chasing after me, trying to find me. I just needed to get away. I needed time and I think I realized I wanted to just be to myself,” Underwood added. “[I wanted to] just sit in that moment by myself and realize what’s best for me as a human being, ‘What do I need next?’”

This isn’t the first time Harrison addressed the highly talked about moment. During The Women Tell All special, the host admitted that they almost called the cops, saying, “We called back to Los Angeles… and we woke up other executive producers and executives and said, ‘This is what’s happening. What do we do?’ And they said, ‘At some point, you’re gonna have to call the authorities.’”

Sure, Underwood “gave himself up” before it came to that, but we have no doubt that Harrison was grinning with delight. The two-night Bachelor finale kicks off tonight, March 11, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
