Bachelor host Chris Harrison refuses to take sides in the Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi split.

"I don't have a horse in this race," Harrison told us at ESPN magazine's ESPY Style Studio. "I didn't leave going, 'Now I'm on Vienna's side' or 'Now, I'm Team Jake.' I think my job was to show everybody exactly what the deal was."

And what does Harrison think the real deal was? Read on to find out...

"When people break up, it sucks and it's nasty and it's ugly." Harrison said. "In this, it got heavy. It got juvenile. The things they were arguing about—the GPS, the dog...They're not arguing about the dog! They're much bigger issues [they're] dealing with."

Would those bigger issues include allegations Vienna cheated on Jake?

"I have no knowledge of any of that stuff," Harrison insisted. "With all these tabloid stories, sometimes there's about four or five percent truth and about 90 to 80 percent bulls--t."

Meanwhile, Vienna did stop by the ESPY swag suite, which was held at the W Hotel in Hollywood. She refused to talk to the media for free, but she hung around long enough to pick up some Dockers. A source reported, "She was also talking about spending the weekend in Vegas and she wanted some bling to wear."
