Chris Harrison received $  9M 'Bachelor' exit payout: report

The longtime “Bachelor” host was paid $ 9 million in his exit from the franchise, Variety reported Friday — despite demanding a $ 25 million payout as Page Six previously reported.

In a new report, Variety revealed Harrison, who left the franchise after defending a former contestant’s past racist actions, was paid roughly $ 10 million — a combination of a $ 9 million exit settlement and remaining contractual fees.

A source previously told Page Six that the 49-year-old was ready to spill the dirt if the network didn’t shell out the cash.
