Chris Harrison was not prepared to chase after Colton Underwood after The Bachelor star decided to jump the fence and run away.
In fact, according to the host, he even considered calling the police when he wasn’t able to find the 27-year-old.
“I happened to be there, and as you saw, I was kind of in street clothes…wasn’t exactly dressed to go on. But when things started taking the direction they were, and I saw him throw off his mic and start walking out, I’m like, let me go talk to him,” he told E! News.
“So I start walking down this driveway, about a 100 yards or so, and I thought OK, well there’s the fence, so he’s gonna stop…and you saw what happened. He was up and over. It was pretty spectacular.”
“In all seriousness, I thought there were people on the other side. I thought he was pissed at me and pissed at us and just needed his moment, but there were people there. When I opened the gate and I realized everyone was gone, and it was just darkness in the middle of Portugal…he was just a ghost, gone.”
Harrison and the crew spent some time searching for Underwood, but things got a little scary when he was nowhere to be found.
“After a few minutes, I quickly realized we lost the Bachelor. Like we don’t know where he is at all, and we’re yelling and we’re running around, I thought I heard him, I thought I heard some dogs, so I’m sprinting down the street, and I’m yelling his name like a lunatic,” he said.
“And then I’m calling back to the United States, like, guys, what are your thoughts? I’m like, at some point, we have to call the authorities. We decided we were going to give it about five more minutes and we were going to call the cops.”
