DeAnna Pappas' New Gig: Wedding TV Show Host!

at . Comments

The Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas didn’t get her happily ever after on reality TV, but she’ll be helping other brides-to-be plan their dream weddings. It may seem a bit odd, considering what she just went through, but she's psyched!

DeAnna, who recently called off her engagement to show winner Jesse Csincsak, will be co-hosting Lifetime network’s Get Married.

The second season of Get Married premieres January 5. DeAnna Pappas announced her new gig on the show's blog, writing:

“I am so happy to be co-hosting the new season of Get Married! Every weekday morning I will be bringing you the latest in wedding planning tips and trends, and weekly I will be blogging here at”

“Many of you may know me from seeing me on television looking for love ... The second show, many of you watched as I got down to one man ... he got down on one knee and proposed to me ... unfortunately we have since gone our separate ways but still remain very good friends. From my personal love experiences and sharing the ups and downs of love with my friends, I have become a go-to girl among my girlfriends who have become beautiful brides themselves.”

In light of her recent breakup with Jesse Csincsak, some question if DeAnna really makes the best co-host of a wedding show. It does make you think.

But Get Married CEO Stacie Francombe, who hired Pappas after watching her on The Bachelorette’s fourth season, says DeAnna is right for the job.
