Former star of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas didn’t get her fairy-tale ending after enduring two seasons on the reality TV shows.
But that hasn’t stopped her from helping other frazzled brides-to-be plan their big day as the host of Get Married, a wedding advice show that airs on Lifetime.
She's definitely got the right experience! Oh, wait.
In an interview with People, DeAnna Pappas, 27, chatted about weddings, why she and ex Jesse Csincsak broke up, and her much-anticipated visit to The Bachelor pad now inhabited by her Bachelorette runner-up, Jason Mesnick.
Q: Tell us about your new co-hosting gig on Get Married?
DeAnna Pappas: It is the bride’s guide to getting married, from finding the right dress and invitations to writing vows, picking a cake and planning the honeymoon. The show handles broad topics and refers viewers to the site GetMarried.com where they can find local vendors and even more tips. My co-host Colin Cowie and I also have blogs on the site. Me, I just talk about everyday life and my ongoing quest for love.
Q: Why did you want to host this show?
DeAnna Pappas: When the opportunity first came about, I was engaged, and when the president of the company contacted me in Colorado, I thought I could learn something [for my wedding] and follow my TV hosting dream. I flew back home to Atlanta and met with her. It is a very close-knit family, a comfortable setting and I really liked their goal of helping brides and grooms.
