Working the Emmy red carpet, Chris Harrison drafts his nominee dream tenants

Chris Harrison hosts Bachelor Pad for ABC. He’s also working the red carpet this weekend at the Emmys for TV Guide Network.

Hey, here’s a high-concept idea: “Let’s lock off the red carpet, and the red carpet is our Bachelor Pad,” he says.

So who would he invite?

“First and foremost, Sofia Vergara,” he says. “I don’t know her. I’ve never met her, but I’m just starting with her and I’m hoping it’ll just end with her.”

He’ll still give a few of her Modern Family costars a chance as well. Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson are also on his list of dream Pad tenants.

And for some added drama and sex appeal, he’s hoping the True Blood cast can add some ghoulish fun. “Should I be turned on or should I be grossed out?” he asks. “And if I am turned on, what does that say about me?”

“These,” says Harrison, “are the issues that a good bachelor pad would have.”

Emmys Red Carpet with Chris Harrison begins Sunday at 6 p.m. ET on TV Guide Network.
