Today is National Bobblehead Day, and to celebrate the special occasion, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has unveiled two limited-edition bobbleheads in the likeness of The Bachelor franchise host Chris Harrison.
The first bobblehead features Harrison standing on a rose-shaped base holding a removable rose that can be replaced with a real flower. The second one, on the other hand, depicts the TV host sitting on a chair next to a bouquet of roses and three candles, which light up.
Produced in conjunction with Harrison, these officially licensed bobbleheads are exclusively sold through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s online store. Both bobbleheads are now available for preorder for $30 each, but fans can get the two bobbleheads for only $50 if they order them together. Orders, which come with a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 each, are expected to ship in February.
“Chris Harrison has become one of the most beloved hosts on television and we think these bobbleheads will be a huge hit with Bachelor Nation,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said in a statement. “We’re excited to be collaborating with Chris on these unique bobbleheads that will become the centerpieces of watch parties across the globe.”
When asked what it’s like to get his own bobbleheads, Harrison said: “I feel like I’ve finally made it by having a bobblehead. These are so fun and the perfect addition to any dramatic event.”
Aside from hosting The Bachelor since its 2002 debut, Harrison has also served as the presenter of several The Bachelor spinoffs, including The Bachelorette (since 2003), Bachelor Pad (2010-12), Bachelor in Paradise (since 2014), Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise (2015), Bachelor Live (2016), The Bachelor Winter Games (2018), and The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons – Ever! (2020).
Outside the popular ABC dating show franchise, Harrison also hosted the nationally syndicated game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire from 2015 through 2019 and received Emmy nominations as Best Game Show Host in 2018 and 2019.
The launch of the Chris Harrison bobbleheads comes three days after the January 4th premiere of The Bachelor season 25, which features Matt James, a 28-year-old real estate broker and charity founder from Raleigh, North Carolina.
