The longtime leader of Bachelor Nation even has a contingency plan if Taylor Swift's hypothetical showmance doesn't work out

No one knows love like Chris Harrison, the longstanding leader of Bachelor Nation, and he has just the A-lister in mind to find it once again – and maybe even write an album about it!

When asked to choose a celebrity Bachelorette from the three single-and-ready-to-mingle celebs Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner and Khloé Kardashian, it was a no-brainer: Team Taylor all the way.

“Because here’s the thing,” explains Harrison, “we’re going to have her fall in love because she falls in love easily.”

And if the 26-year-old megastar can’t make love last, that’s okay too!

“Then she’s going to break up,” continues Harrison, 45. “Then we’re going to have an entire album of songs written about The Bachelor,” jokes Harrison. “It’s all about [self-]promotion.”

Asked if he had the chance to go back to any Bachelorette season in hopes of scoring the final rose himself, he says it would have to have been Trista Rehn Sutter‘s season in 2003.

“That’s when I was the youngest and probably in the best shape,” Harrison shares. “Because I’m not about to take my shirt off anytime soon.”

But he will be handing out gifts as an attendee at – and likely officiant of – three upcoming Bachelor in Paradise weddings.

Pro tip from Harrison himself: “Candlesticks make a great gift.”

Harrison currently hosts Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (check local listings), and Nick Viall will hand out his first rose on The Bachelor starting this January on ABC.
