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!

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.
