‘The Bachelor’ video: Chris Harrison bonds with … Maegan Miller’s mini-horse?

Maegan -Monday night’s premiere of “The Bachelor” is now mere hours away, and it certainly feels as though someone has made a strong first impression on host Chris Harrison … but it’s not any of the contestants.

Instead, the sneak peek below for the premiere reveals that it is none other than contestant Maegan Miller’s mini-horse! It’s a fun little scene featuring Harrison hamming it up a little bit, and it’s all in good fun. This feels almost like the sort of thing that will probably play during the end credits of the episode, since there’s no real context for it anywhere else.

Maybe this preview is your answer for what Harrison is up to in between introducing Ben Higgins to his potential suitors and then him coming back for the Rose Ceremony later in the night. This is a long episode to film, and we imagine that it gets exhausting for many. This is why so many people end up getting hammered by the end of it; this is a long time that you’re having to sit around waiting for one dude to talk to you!

In the end, the premiere’s great fun. It’s more or less “The Bachelor” that you love, and it’ll create some discussion points for you and your friends throughout the week. It’s also going to be giving us a lot to talk about in our upcoming podcast on the premiere, which is going to be coming in your direction a little bit later in the week. Be on the lookout!
