Rumors Were Spread That Michael Strahan Or Robin Roberts Would Be Replacing Chris Harrison.

It was rumored that ABC hosts Michael Strahan or Robin Roberts would be replacing Harrison. But Lindsay’s preferred pick was Emmanuel. Moreover, Lindsay told People Magazine, “We think Emmanuel Acho would be fantastic. [He’s] very outspoken about racial injustice, for social justice, and has pretty much been the person who said, ‘I can have these uncomfortable conversations, and people trust it.’ Who better to lead it? [He’s] someone who’s not involved with the franchise, no ties, no bias — I think it’d be great.”
