A Nigerian-American and former NFLer, who is also a sport broadcaster, Emmanuel Acho has been announced to replace Chris Harrison as the host for ‘The Bachelor’ season finale episode. The new change is coming following a racism scandal.

Emmanuel Acho who is also the boyfriend to actress and standup comedian Yvonne Orji, broke the news on his official Twitter handle on Saturday, saying:

 “IT’S OFFICIAL: I’ve accepted the Rose & am honoured to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year.”

He adds, “It’s been a pivotal season & this episode will be one of the most storied shows in its history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. See y’all then! 🌹 ❤️”

According to the report by TMZ, It has been widely rumoured that Emmanuel Acho would get a serious nod from ABC especially after Rachel Lindsay, the first Black ‘Bachelorette’ in the franchise publicly name-dropped him recently as a great potential option to step in for Chris.

She said he’d be ideal since he has no affiliation with the franchise, and could be relatively neutral. Not just that, but Emmanuel Acho is Black too and well-versed in issues of race, as he’s quite vocal on his own programming. He seems pretty stoked for the opportunity too, the report said.

GMA confirmed the announcement as well, and Emmanuel responded “Life changing. I can’t wait!” It’ll be interesting to see how he moderates the convo with Matt James and whoever he ends up picking — including potentially Rachael Kirkconnell, the problem-contestant from whose old racist photos this whole situation arose.

Yvonne Orji in 2018, shared some sizzling photo-shoot with Emmanuel Acho, describing all the attributes she wants from her future husband.

She had said:
“Dear God,
May he have abs like David•
Skin like Sampson•
A smile like Joseph•
Fingernails like Solomon•
Eyebrows like John The Baptist &•
A heart (and finances) like yours•
In Jesus’ Name•

…congratulations to Acho!
