Jillian Harris first charmed an audience with her irrepressible humor and emotional honesty on ABC’s “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” She will now have the chance to share her wealth of experience in the design industry as co-host of Love it or List it Vancouver. Growing up in the picturesque Peace River valley in Alberta was a catalyst for Jillian’s creativity and vivacious character.
A self- proclaimed “polished redneck,” she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty or climb a ladder with heels on. Whether applied to design or daily life, she carefully combines elements of the metropolis and country, low brow and high class, and the classic versus the absurd. From ATV’ing and campfire roasts to perusing the shops of the Merchandise Mart for design trends- or searching endlessly for the perfect pair of heels- Jillian’s motto about ‘doing it all’ never rests. While this lifestyle makes Jill the quintessential “busy bee,” those close to her would say her passion for making others happy might be the highlight to her multi-faceted personality. Having previously hosted Canada’s Handyman Challenge and having worked as a designer on Extreme Makeover: Home Addition, co-hosting Love it or List it Vancouver is a natural fit for Jillian.
Outside of her work in television, Jillian jets between the U.S. and Canada to run her firm Jillian Harris Design, pours her heart and soul into her website jillianharris.com & prides herself on always putting family & personal life first, traveling, hosting dinners at her home in Kelowna, taking in fine fashion and, of course, cuisine.
