(CNN)Former NFL player Emmanuel Acho will be hosting "The Bachelor: After the Final Rose," replacing host Chris Harrison who stepped aside following a controversial interview.

Acho, the host of the YouTube series "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man," announced on Saturday he would host the one-hour special for the 25th season.

"I've accepted the Rose & am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year," Acho tweeted.

Harrison announced on February 13 he was "stepping aside" from the show "for a period of time" after defending a frontrunner on the current season who came under scrutiny for social media photos from her past.

This is the 25th season of ABC's enormously popular reality dating franchise and the first in which ABC cast a Black man, Matt James, as the show's star.

During the episode, Acho "will sit down with Bachelor Matt James to discuss his season, his final decision and where he is now, as well as cover the current events about the franchise," ABC said in a press release.

The on-air personality and bestselling author will also speak to the season's final three women: Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs.

The special episode will air on Monday, March 15, immediately after the season finale of "The Bachelor. "
