“The Bachelor” reality show can really open some doors.

Dr. Travis Stork from season eight didn’t find the girl of his dreams in 2006, but he landed a role as co-host on ”The Doctors,” a daytime medical talk show.

Jillian Harris, who was on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” is an interior designer on the HGTV show “Love It or List It, Too.”

Melissa Rycroft was proposed to on “The Bachelor” in 2009, then dumped a few weeks later, found success on “Dancing with the Stars”and is a ”Good Morning America” correspondent.

Professional landscaper Chris Lambton was one of the guys on “The Bachelorette.”  He and his wife,  “The Bachelor” alum Peyton Wright, star in HGTV’s gardening and landscaping series “Going Yard.”

 Now comes Desiree Hartsock of “The Bachelorette.” She has partnered with designer Maggie Sottero to design a one-of-a-kind gown for her upcoming wedding to Chris Siegfried.  The collaboration will also include a dress for her reception and an exclusive collection of wedding dresses bearing the label, “Desiree Hartsock with Maggie Sottero.”

  ”As an aspiring bridal designer, it’s been a goal of mine to learn from the best in the industry and to incorporate the genius of other gifted designers into my own experience,” Hartsock said.  “From my years as a bridal sales associate and stylist, I can’t think of a better mentor and partner than Maggie Sottero and I’m thrilled with the opportunity.”

While the details of her wedding dress will be kept under wraps, brides can expect a modified version of the gown available for order from authorized Maggie Sottero retailers soon after Desiree has worn the original. Hartsock’s bridal collection will debut as part of Maggie Sottero’s Spring 2015 collection Aug. 24-25t athe L.A. Couture Show hosted by The Knot in Hollywood, Calif.

Hartsock  is a 2006 fashion design graduate of The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles.  She currently lives in Seattle, Wash., with Chris.
