The Bachelorette contestant-turned-Bachelor in Paradise bartender is set to have an expanded role next season, ABC confirms to PEOPLE.

As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Adams, 37, will become the "master of ceremonies" over the rose eliminations and will guest host one of the episodes in the upcoming season 7.

Following Chris Harrison's exit from the Bachelor franchise, several guest hosts were announced for the upcoming season of BiP, including Lance Bass, Tituss Burgess, Lil Jon and David Spade.
