Audrina Patridge is about to travel far beyond The Hills — all on NBC's dime! The MTV star will host the network's lifestyle show 1st Look starting in January, The Hollywood Reporter announces.

The current host also has a storied TV past: It's Ali Fedotowsky, a contestant from The Bachelor Season 14 and The Bachelorette Season 6! But don't feel bad for her — she's moving on to new horizons as a full-time correspondent at E! News after wrapping up her 1st Look duties this fall.

The show highlights the best of a certain US destination's dining scene, nightlife, and recreational activities. And Audrina is already an avid viewer: "It's one of my dream jobs because I love doing different adventures, and I have a passion for trying just about anything, which fits what this show is about. I get to bring the audience with me on this journey, and I can't wait."

NBC seems just as enthusiastic to have the Hills star onboard. "Audrina is the ideal fit for 1st Look with her captivating presence and up-for-anything attitude," NBC executive Marni Sabia raves. "Her passion for adventure and her enthusiasm are sure to catch the attention of our viewers every week as she takes on the experiences they want to see."

Glad to see the 28-year-old going onward and upward!
