Chris Lambton: Going Yard on HGTV!

by at . Comments

By now, you've likely heard that Emily Maynard is The Bachelorette. Well, it turns out she's not the only big name from the ABC franchise getting a new gig.

The Bachelorette runner-up Chris Lambton, who turned down a chance to star as The Bachelor after Ali Fedotowsky turned him down, is getting his own show.

On HGTV. It's called Going Yard! Get it?! He's a landscaper!

Chris Lambton on The Bachelorette

In Going Yard, Lambton, the co-owner of his family landscaping company in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, will transform neglected backyards into spectacular spaces.

In each episode, he and his E. Lambton Landscaping team will trick out a homeowner's yard with such features as patios, arbors, water features and fire pits.

In addition, Lambton's fiance Peyton Wright (a fellow Bachelor album) will join the business, pitching in with design projects. Good for them is all we can say.

A fan favorite runner-up in season six of The Bachelorette, Chris Lambton was previously a math teacher and league championship-winning basketball coach.

"With his landscaping expertise and easygoing, approachable personality, Chris is an exciting addition to HGTV," said Kathleen Finch, HGTV general manager.

Hi Chris and Peyton,
Congratulations on your recent wedding--wishing you a lifetime of love, laughter, and landscaping success!
I live in East Falmouth in a lovely little Cape Cod contemporary situated on the Eel River, which flows directly out to Vineyard Sound. We have a relatively small backyard, fronted by wetlands down to the river and our great dock. The views are wonderful, but our yard just doesn't offer an eye-catching setting. We need help! Please consider contacting us and visiting our home to see if you might use us this summer on your new show. My husband, John, and I would be grateful and so excited to see what you both could do! Our address: 20 Salt River Road, E.Falmouth,MA 02536; our phone #: 508-457-1794
Thank you for considering us,
Joan Dwyer
