Chrystie Corns – the sister of “The Bachelorette” star Ashley Hebert – will be featured this spring on the TLC network’s new reality show “Extreme Couponing.”

The show will follow 24 “super couponers” over 12 half-hour episodes as they shop for bargains across America. Corns, who is 33 and works as a social media consultant in Portland, will be featured on one of the episodes. The series will premiere Wednesday, April 6 at 9 p.m.

Corns’ “extreme couponing” methods were detailed in a profile of her that ran in The Portland Press Herald in February.

Hebert, 26, and a native of Madawaska, was seen by national TV audiences in January and February as a contestant on the ABC reality dating show “The Bachelor.” She ended up finishing third, out of 30 women, and impressed producers enough to land the starring role in the companion series “The Bachelorette.”

That series, with Hebert having her pick of the men, will premiere May 23.
