ABC has announced that The Bachelorette star, Jillian Harris, will be heading over to another reality show: Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Harris, who had a guest appearance on an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition last season, will become a permanent cast member on season 8. Keep reading for more details on Harris’ new television gig…

After finding love on ABC‘s The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris has found a new reality TV show to call home. Harris, who has a background in interior design, will be joining the cast of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for the show’s eighth season. Harris guest-starred on an episode of the home makeover reality show last season where she helped design a house for a family whose son underwent heart transplant surgery as an infant. Apparently, she did an impressive job because she was offered a permanent spot on the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition design team, alongside Ty Pennington.

“It is truly a dream,” the former Bachelorette says about the new job. “I can’t wait to get on that bus again and make a difference! I have been such a fan of the show for years. I watched the designers and thought, ‘Wow, what an incredible opportunity that would be,’ … And here I am one of those designers.”

Also joining Jillian Harris on the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition crew is rapper Xhibit and interior designer, Leigh Anne Tuohy, who was portrayed onscreen by Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side. Filming for the eighth season of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition begins this summer.
