The Bachelorette is over and as much as Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski would like to stay out of the limelight, sometimes the offers are just too good to resist.  After being bombarded with a series of controversies, the Bachelorette couple is now looking forward to have some fun as they participate on the ABC competitive series Wipeout.

"The only thing that we have both agreed to do together is to go on Wipeout on ABC. We really want to go on that because we feel like we've just been through the wringer the last few weeks, so that would be a great way to lighten things up," Harris told Canada.com.

Wipeout, the show that has a larger-than-life obstacle course, isn't the only thing being offered to Harris since getting engaged on The Bachelorette. She's also considering doing some sort of design show on TV, which doesn't really come as a surprise given that so many reality TV stars have opted to linger on the entertainment scene after getting a taste of the limelight.  

"I'll be honest, having a design show used to be my dream -- it's every designer's dream. There's been a few calls and a few proposals for me to do something. It's so exciting and so flattering to get those phone calls," Harris revealed.

But while Harris has gotten numerous offers, she admits that she can't help but hold herself back, maintaining that her relationship with her fiancé is her number 1 priority.

"Will my relationship suffer if I go on a design show?  It would be so awesome to experience something like that, but at the same time I have to think about what the repercussions would be," Harris said.

"Ed and I had a big conversation about this last week," she added. "He certainly does not want to stay in the limelight. He's got a great job, loves his job, just wants to get away from all of this attention, and I do as well -- except for the fact that of course now there are a few great opportunities that are starting to come my way, that have to do with being in television and to do with things that I'm very passionate about, like design and helping people."
