BACHELOR HATE-WATCHER!

-

He can’t help it! After being pushed out as the show’s longtime host, Chris Harrison keeps tuning into The Bachelor, now hosted by alum Jesse Palmer. And sources tell Star he’s a hate-watcher! “He’ll make snarky comments about the set-up, the plotlines and how it was so much better in his day,” says a source. “He says he built that show from the bottom up and now it’s like he never existed.”

It doesn’t help that Jesse seemed to poke fun at Chris in episode 1, dropping some of the TV vet’s most overused phrases without naming his predecesso­r. “Chris has nothing against Jesse, but he never wanted to leave the show and is bitter over it,” the source says of the 50-year-old, who stepped down — with a $10 million payout — last year after his tone-deaf response to a contestant’s racially insensitiv­e social-media pics. “The cushy settlement hasn’t stopped him from firing off comments to his friends.” ★
