TORONTO, Aug. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - W Network has revealed five more eligible suitors from across Canada who are looking for roses and love in the first season of The Bachelorette Canada. The Bachelors revealed today include a carpenter from Winnipeg, a cowboy from Calgary, a VP of medical sales from Toronto, a Butler in the Buff from Whistler and a disaster search and rescue team member from Gatineau. Canada's first-ever Bachelorette Jasmine Lorimer embarks on her journey to find true love when The Bachelorette Canada premieres September 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The Bachelors announced today, hoping to win Jasmine's heart, are:
Scott describes himself as funny, smart and honest; however, he admits he may initially come across as shy and quiet before he gets to know someone. The 27-year-old carpenter (and part-time model) is ready to step outside his comfort zone in hopes of meeting someone who is fun, easygoing and adventurous. Scott purchased his home at the young age of 22 and he's hoping the Bachelorette will be that special someone he can share it with.
There is no stopping 27-year-old cowboy, Tony. After fracturing both heels in a rodeo accident, he amazed doctors and friends alike by rebounding from his wheelchair quickly and with a vengeance. Tony appreciates a strong physical attraction, but is more interested in making a special connection with someone who is natural, kind and as full of energy as he is. Tony's high-octane approach to life has been a challenge in establishing lasting relationships, but he's never been one to give up. Tony is ready for love and will take the Bachelorette (and the other Bachelors) by storm to find it.
VP, Medical Sales
Drew's friends describe him as "smooth" and the 32-year-old medical sales VP couldn't agree more. Full of confidence, Drew prides himself on knowing how to relate to people. This handsome and successful charmer has no problem meeting ladies, but he needs help finding 'the one.' After a series of long-term relationships and a broken engagement, Drew is tired of the dating scene and is ready to use his considerable charms to win over the girl of his dreams. He is confident he can bring his best game forward simply with his "presence," a quality he knows will set him apart from the other Bachelors.
Butler in the Buff
JP, a twenty-seven-year-old from Whistler B.C., has no problem donning an apron (and little else) as a Butler in the Buff at parties, but he's more than just a pretty face and hot body. Well-educated and focused on personal development, JP also finds time to teach snowboarding, work as personal trainer and volunteer for his favourite charities. He is ready to serve up his own brand of hospitality and win the Bachelorette's love.
Disaster Search and Rescue
Determined to be a positive force in the world, Dana has dedicated his life to helping others. The 30-year-old disaster search and rescue worker from Gatineau, Que. counts his disaster response mission to the Philippines as his greatest and most rewarding achievement to date. Dana is a sensitive guy, but he also knows how to have a good time. He is currently taking break dancing lessons to add to his repertoire of party tricks. His latest mission is to find someone he can learn from and grow with and he's hoping to find her in the Bachelorette.
Canadians can learn more about each of the 10 Bachelors now announced on WNetwork.com with exclusive videos introducing each of the men. Additional Bachelors will be revealed every Monday for the next two weeks until all 20 men have been announced.
