Wedding Bells for Renee Oteri?

According to Us Weekly, the single mom, who was eliminated by Juan Pablo after the hometown dates, has reportedly accepted a proposal from a man whom she has known for quite some time. "Her fiance has known [her son] Ben since he was a baby and Renee is so excited to start over with her new family in Seattle," an insider revealed. "She'll continue to be a photographer!"

"She is so happy and has wanted this with her fiance for a very long time! We're all so happy to see them back together! He is always the one everyone wanted to see her with! She couldn't be happier," added another source. 
 
Chris Harrison Tells All

Since 2002, Chris Harrison has been hosting The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise for a combined 27 seasons. Now he's spilling some secrets about the franchise and even reveals why men who join the ABC reality dating show are still single.

In an interview with The NewYork Times, the Bachelor host revealed that aside from alcohol, there's another thing men can't seem to live without on the show. "We go through 9,000 eggs in a season, because apparently the modern-day guy doesn't have a hair on his body and eats 40 egg whites a meal," he said. "Once I told them: 'I know why you're all single. You're too busy eating egg whites and working out.'"

Chris Harrison also revealed why the franchise would never consider  a chubby Bachelor.  "Because that's not attractive," he reasoned. "And television is a very visual medium, and I know that sounds horrible to say, but I know that at 42, in the eyes of television, I'm old and unattractive. Sure, I can put a suit and tie on, but I have hair on my chest and I don't have a 12-pack. I live a healthy life, but I don't do eight hours in the gym, nor do I want to. And I don't eat 50,000 egg whites."

As for what he's learned over the years, Chris realizes that "love is a competition." "If you don't think so, then you're crazy, because why are you dressing up, why are you wearing those heels, why are you wearing that $400 perfume? Why are you shaving your chest and eating 40,000 egg whites?"

Asked whether he would ever be the Bachelor, Chris said it's possible but don't count on it. "Now that I'm divorced, it's feasible," he said. "But there needs to be a level of innocence and naivete when you come in to be the Bachelor, and I have none," he explained. "I have seen how the sausage has been made for 12 years now, and I helped make that sausage and so it just wouldn't work."

His ex-wife, on the other hand, is another story. "That would be amazing," said Chris of his ex-wife possibly becoming the Bachelorette. " She's beautiful. I think she would love that. I would not only host that, I'd produce it."
