The countdown is on till the new season of The Bachelor Canada starts on our TVs!
We all like to quietly crap on Canada versions of big US shows being not as good or ultra-budget… but The Bachelor Canada is pretty decent! It’s got the big budget locations and some all-Canadian drama to match (yes, I hate to admit it that I occasionally ‘accidentally’ watch the show when my girlfriend is home).
So.. these are the ladies that will be battling it out for 33 year-old retired professional baseball player Chris Leroux’s heart. BC is very well represented btw!
