Jillian Harris has traveled all over the world thanks to her appearances on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, but that doesn't mean she's lost sight of who she is. Especially now that she's joining the team on Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
"I grew up in a really small town, with a mom who always taught me to give back, that it was our responsibility to help others," she told People at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville. And while she did love her time on The Bachelor, that isn't what she's really about: "The Bachelor was just something that happened to me. It wasn't anything I was looking for or wanting. It was a fluke, a lark. It was fun to do,Â the Vancouver native says. I got to travel around the world, work with great people who are still friends, and kiss five guys in one day! But it's not really who I am." She adds, Extreme Makeover is much more who I am.Â
Jillian, you're forgetting one more thing that you got from The Bachelorette: Your fiance Ed Swiderski!
