From what I understand, the producers that make the show, they wanted Arie as well.
They’ve got some new execs and they were getting nervous…Arie hadn’t been on TV in two years, we wanna go with the safe choice, which would have been Chris, because he was just coming off The Bachelorette,” Lowe explained.
It was the emotional ending to Emily's heartfelt journey to find true love, live, on 'The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose,' SUNDAY, JULY 22 (- p.m., ET).
