Normally, he’s announcing the final rose.

But in a video posted to Facebook on Monday, Bachelor host Chris Harrison was reminding viewers of something else entirely.

“On behalf of Hillel, I want to remind you guys that time is running out if you want that free trip to Israel,” Harrison said, in the video posted by Hillel’s Taglit-Birthright Facebook page. “And you don’t have go alone – grab a friend. If you don’t make it this summer, you know you’re going to have FOMO [fear of missing out], you know you’re missing out, so get on it.”

Hillel confirmed to The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday that the video was a paid promotional deal with Harrison. The bachelor host noted in the video that he was filming on the set of this season’s “Women Tell All” episode of The Bachelor, which was reportedly filmed this past Friday.

The most recent season of The Bachelor – starring Colton Underwood – the 37th in the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, is currently airing on ABC.
