Hilarious fake Twitter Chris Harrison confuses former Bachelor

A hilarious Twitter spoof of The Bachelor host Chris Harrison has confused former bachelor Jake Pavelka.

Tonight, Jake asked the real Chris Harrison “is that you?” Yes, he’s confused by a separate Twitter account that includes a recent post that says, “Hmmm. Someone named @chrisbharrison is impersonating me on here. Everyone knows Im the REAL Chris Harrison. With my 8 followers. SIGH.”

The fake Chris, @hostofbachelor, has posted a series of hilarious, satirical tweets over the past eight days. Some of my favorites:

Some jerk mistook me for @ChrisHanson. I yelled: “NO! He gives out juice and cookies to pedophiles! I give out roses and comfort angels!” (link)

During the off-seasons, I sometimes sit inside the Fantasy Suite and do my crossword puzzles. Naked. (link)

Bachelorette is over. Ali found happiness. My life still has no purpose. (link)

Vienna is crying on my shoulder right now. We are seconds away from something meaningful. Oh … wait … she got up to pee. (link)

@ChrisLambton13 Chris will you accept this request to please follow me and be my friend? Im so very lonely. (link)

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
