'The Bachelor' Host Chris Harrison's Instagram Takeover [Photos]

The host of The Bachelor recently left the balmy weather of Los Angeles to come to New York City — currently in the middle of a bitter cold snap — to help spread the word about the two-part Bachelor event, which starts Sunday night. "That moment when you wake up & hear it's 9 degrees outside," he wrote in his first NYC selfie. Yeah, sorry about that, pal. (Click the image above or HERE to see all of Chris's photos.)

But Chris Harrison is nothing if not a dedicated leader of Bachelor Nation, so he braved the icy temps and visited five media outlets on his spread-the-word tour, from Good Morning America to Sirius XM. The good folks at The Chew even plied him with gourmet food and a vodka cocktail. (#Daydrinking.)

The two-part Bachelor extravaganza begins with Chris Tells All, featuring interviews with Bachelor Chris Soules, recently dumped "black widow" Kelsey, and former Bachelorette Andi, who tearfully tells Chris Harrison about her breakup with fiancé Josh. Monday night's episode, meanwhile, centers on the all-important hometown dates in the tiny, quiet berg of Arlington, Iowa. (Oh, and the Bachelor also learns about Jade's Playboy past, so that's fun.)
