'The Bachelor' fan-favorites to appear on 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire' with Chris Harrison all next week

The Bachelor host Chris Harrison will be welcoming a string of fan-favorite bachelors and bachelorettes from seasons past to compete for the grand prize on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire next week.
Beginning on Monday, February 6, former stars of The Bachelor franchise will test their knowledge and luck by answering questions for Millionaire host Chris Harrison in the hope of winning up to $1 million for charity, E! News reported.
Harrison told E! News that the mini reunion provides him a chance to "not really talk about The Bachelor as much as talk about their life, kind of catch up on what they're doing, and show a different side of them."
"I get to know these people really well, and so it's fun for me to get to show everybody else that side," he continued, "and I think you get to see a little bit more of that on Millionaire obviously when they're not searching for love."
Harrison said the couples who are still together will play together on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
"You would think the couples would have a massive advantage playing together, but it's actually a little more difficult," Harrison said, before revealing which couple did very well in the game.
"Shawn and Kaitlyn, I will say, I underestimated them, because Kaitlyn is such a goofball and she's always laughing and she's always making me laugh, so I have to admit, I underestimated them a little bit. And they did far better than I expected."
Harrison also told E! News that nine out of 10 times, the woman in each relationship dominates in a high-pressure situation.
"To watch Ashley and JP, and there was one situation where JP was 150 percent sure of an answer, and Ashley still wouldn't pull the trigger. 'I don't know, maybe we should use a lifeline.' And he's like, 'I am telling you, without a doubt, this is the answer,' and she's like, 'Well, I'm just not sure.' It's funny to see the dynamic, because you know it plays out like that at home," Harrison explained.
As for the future, Harrison confessed he would "hands down" love to see Corinne Olympios compete on Millionaire out of Season 21's batch of contestants.
"And her plus one would have to be her nanny," the hosted noted. "I will move heaven and earth to make that happen."
