Season 5 Bachelorette Jillian Harris makes her big return to TV tonight — on January 7, 2013 — but this time, don’t expect her personal life to take center stage.
Jilly, who recently told The Calgary Herald that she’d love to be known as a sort of young, hip, off-beat Martha Stewart, will put her career as a designer to good use in the new Canadian TV show, Love It or List It: Vancouver.
She co-hosts the new real estate series, which airs on Canada’s W Network, where families get their entire home renovated by Jillian and crew, then must decide if they want to keep their new home, or put it up for sale.
It’s not Jillian’s first time on TV post-Bachelorette: she’s previously appeared on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in the US, and Canada's Handyman Challenge. Jillian tells Canadian Press that she’s loving the chance to let people see a side of her that’s isn’t just the girl "making out in hot tubs."
"When (Love It producers) came to me I was like, 'Oh that's awesome. You actually recognize the fact that I'm a designer and that I could be good in this field,'" she says. Canadian fans, will you be watching designer Jillian on her brand new show?
