While it is still unclear how many episodes of the reality show each of them will front, the trio have been added to the list of Chris Harrison's substitutes alongside comedian David Spade.

AceShowbiz - Singer Lance Bass, rapper Lil Jon and actor Tituss Burgess are preparing to take on guest hosting duties for U.S. dating show "Bachelor in Paradise", following the exit of longtime presenter Chris Harrison.

The TV personality temporarily stepped down from "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" franchises amid a race row in February, and on Tuesday, June 8, it was confirmed his departure was permanent.

"I've had a truly incredible run as host of The Bachelor franchise and now I'm excited to start a new chapter," the former host announced in an Instagram post. "I'm so grateful to Bachelor Nation for all of the memories we've made together. While my two-decade journey is wrapping up, the friendships I've made will last a lifetime."

Comedian David Spade, a "Bachelor" superfan, was previously recruited as Harrison's replacement on the summer spin-off "Bachelor in Paradise", and now, according to the New York Post's Page Six, he will be part of a rotating series of guest hosts, alongside the likes of former 'NSYNC star Bass, Lil Jon, who appeared on the show in 2018, and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" funnyman Burgess.

It's unclear how many episodes of the reality show each star will front, although they have all been brought onboard to help "breathe personality" into the dating contest and offer "different perspectives" on the romantic developments.

Harrison had hosted "Bachelor in Paradise" since its launch in 2014. As for his hosting gig on "The Bachelorette", former contestants Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe are taking over his role this season.
