Chris Harrison Is Probably Not The Next 'Bachelor' (VIDEO)

Ever since the news broke that "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" host Chris Harrison and his wife of 18 years were getting a divorce, speculation that he might be the next "Bachelor" has run rampant. Harrison co-hosted "Live! With Kelly" (weekdays on ABC) on Wednesday, and Ripa got right to the question on everybody's minds.

"I know that ABC likes to give people enough time to recover from their personal situations, but have they approached you yet to become 'The Bachelor'?" she asked.

Harrison laughed off the notion and joked that watching him try to date after a 22-year-hiatus would make for some awful TV. "Is R.E.M. still on tour?" he quipped.
