Jesse Palmer, who appeared on season five of "The Bachelor", will return to the franchise as the new host to permanently replace Chris Harrison.
In season 5, Palmer gave his finale rose to Jessica Bowlin, but they broke up shortly after the show aired. He is now engaged to model Emely Fardo.
Jesse has also hosted several series—including "The Proposal", "Holiday Baking Championship" and "The Ultimate Surfer"—and is a football analyst for ESPN.
The news comes more than three months after longtime host Chris Harrison's exit from "The Bachelor" franchise.
