It won't premiere until January 2019, but filming is underway.
The producer/host chatted with Celebrity Page TV about the latest season of Millionaire, during which the show reaches it's $100 million prize money mark, and the controversial announcement to make Colton Underwood the Season 23 star.
"[It's] astounding to think that much money has been given away on a game show, and we have a little special surprise that week where we look back at the history of the show and some of our favorite people," he explained.
As for Underwood and backlash voiced online, Harrison said, "It doesn't matter who you choose, you're not going to ever please everybody. We felt at the end of the day, Colton gives us the best TV."
"The whole virgin angle is obviously going to be interesting — how the women handle it, how does he handle it," he added.
