'The Bachelorette' season 15: Devin Harris discovered he was a 'passionate' person and an 'introvert' after being on the show
The pool of eligible bachelors on 'The Bachelorette' season 15 is getting smaller by the day as only a handful of suitors are left from the 30 who entered the mansion. Though the series might be coming to an end, the drama doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon on the series.
MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) was recently in a conversation with eliminated bachelorette contestant Devin Harris and we got an inside scoop of what happens behind the cameras and whether he thinks Luke Parker is really a bad person. Apart from that, Harris also revealed that he found out he was a very passionate person and an introvert after being on the show
Harris, who is a Talent Agent, spoke about what turned out to be different on the show that he had earlier thought it would be. "I think that it's a lot about the show itself that really requires you to do a lot of self-digging because you don't know how much time you're going to have with, you know this person that you're really trying to open up to and so a big piece is just being extremely vulnerable which in any other situation is really easy because there aren't six or seven other cameras, but you know, it also makes you kind of evaluate what are the best qualities about myself. And I don't think on an everyday basis when you go into a date you are kind of, like well, what am I going to like put out there today? You know, so that's a bit different for sure."
Talking about the best qualities he discovered about himself on the show, Harris said, "I found out that I'm a really passionate person. I guess I would consider myself somewhat a romantic but I wouldn't have referred to myself like that before and I think I'm a lot more introverted than I thought. Originally, if anybody before this experience asked me if I'm an introvert or if I'm an extrovert, I'll be like I'm an extrovert, let's go party, which I'm still that person. But you know, it's different when there are 20 other guys that are also amazing. Yeah, so it's very different."
Harris revealed that during his time on the show, he happened to develop a close friendship with Mike Johnson, Jed Wyatt, and Peter. Moving on to the other polarizing force in the house, which is none other than Luke Parker, we asked Harris if he really is a frustrating person as we get to see him on TV or did it get a little bit amplified. He said. "I think that everything gets amplified on TV. But I think that the best way to sum it up really is we all have things to work on, and the things that he needs to work on were showing a lot more and none of us are perfect. And I think that when you try to put that kind of perfect image out there it actually can sometimes work in reverse and so I think that's really what happened. I don't think he's a bad guy. I just think that he made bad choices and ultimately, it comes really down to just that he was immature in the way that he dealt with his relationship and that shows and it's hard."
Talking about what drew him to Hannah Brown, Harris revealed, " I think that the thing about Hannah is just when you're with her she has this really calming kind of way to her that you kind of don't realize, and you get lost in that moment. And then the other aspect to her is that she's really great, she just says it like it is. She will tell you why she's affected or what she's thinking about."
Recently Wyatt has been making headlines after it was revealed that he had a girlfriend till he left for the show. We asked Harris if he was surprised about it since he was his friend, he said, "I think I saw Haley do an interview and she said herself that he told her that he was going on this show. So for me, I don't think that it's disingenuous. Jed also said 'I came on this show for this and then I ultimately came to a place where I'm really having feelings for you'. I don't think that's just ingenious and I don't hold it against him that he cut something else off to pursue this because I think he did the right things. If he wasn't in a fully committed relationship and he was responsible, he did the right thing by telling her. Hey, this is what I'm thinking about doing. Then what I mean, what else is he supposed to do? It's not like he left without telling her. I think that if he left without telling her and kind of had her on this fish hook, then that would be a problem."
