In addition to Harris, former Pimp My Ride host Xzibit and interior designer Leigh Anne Tuohy -- who was portrayed by Sandra Bullock in the film The Blind Side -- will be joining the eighth-season design team, which will also feature returning members Ty Pennington, with Paul DiMeo, Paige Hemmis, Michael Moloney, Ed Sanders, Tracy Hutson, Eduardo Xol and John Littlefield.

Harris -- who is currently engaged to her selected The Bachelorette suitor Ed Swiderski -- previously served as a "Get On the Bus" celebrity volunteer during an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition seventh-season episode which aired in March.

"I have been an adoring fan of the series for years and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such an amazing team. I feel so blessed to be a part of this project with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Because of the constant love I receive from my family, friends, and now fans, I have always felt like my heart was just bursting with love and hope for others in need," said Harris when ABC announced her guest appearance.

"I couldn't think of a better place or a better way to give back; to give love, support, and hope. I really feel like the world needs a lot of love right now, and to be a part of this and see others give their time and love so generously, it is truly inspiring."

At the time, a source told RadarOnline that Harris "would love a more full-time gig" with the show.

Similar to Harris, Xzibit and Tuohy also served as seventh-season "Get On the Bus" celebrity volunteers.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition eighth-season episodes will air on Sundays at 8PM ET/PT this fall on ABC.
