The Bachelor Canada’s coming out party is set for October.
Citytv announced that the Canadian version of the popular American dating series will have a 90-minute debut Wednesday, October 3 at 9 p.m ET/PT., after which it will move to its regular timeslot of 9:30 ET/PT.
Twenty-five lucky ladies will be battling for the heart of 28-year-old former CFL receiver Brad Smith. The first five contestants were revealed on Breakfast Television Wednesday morning – and they include a Playboy model and a woman nicknamed Bubba.
Your first five bachelorettes are: 25-year-old Sylvan Lake, Alberta pastor Chantelle, 25-year-old Toronto office administrator Clarice, 28-year-old North Vancouver Playboy model Melissa Marie, 27-year-old Toronto real estate agent Rebecca “Bubba” and 26-year-old Moncton university recruitment agent Sophie.
According to a press release, the next five contestants (which, unfortunately, won’t include our own Bachelor hopeful Miranda Furtado) will be unveiled next Wednesday on Breakfast Television, while host Tyler Harcott will give viewers their first peek into the show’s Victoria, BC mansion (and it’s soon-to-be-infamous hot tub) Thursday, Aug. 30, at 9 a.m. ET.
