Comedian and talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel will take over The Bachelor as guest host Monday night, ABC announced.
The reality show follows Chris Soules as he attempts to find his soul mate amongst the remaining 18 women competing for his affection. There was no word on where regular Bachelor host Chris Harrison will be when Kimmel arrives.
"A long-time avid fan of the franchise, [Kimmel] informs them that he is there to help Chris [Soules] on his journey to find a wife to bring home to Arlington, Iowa. He introduces the bachelorettes to his 'Amazing Jar,' plans dates and winds up in a hot tub -- all in the name of love -- on The Bachelor," the network said in a news release. "Jimmy fools Chris and Kaitlyn into believing that they will be going to a high-end members-only club for their date. Little do they know, that is not exactly what Jimmy has planned. Later, Jimmy crashes an intimate dinner at the bachelor's pad, where the couple is grilling some steaks. But will Jimmy amp up the romance and help Chris decide if this lucky lady really deserves a rose?"
