TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - The wait is over. W Network revealed today the last five Bachelors hoping to win Jasmine's heart in the first season of The Bachelorette Canada. The final group of men includes an international model from Regina, an inventor from Calgary, a musician from Windsor, the Canada's Crush contest winner from St. John's and an oilfield equipment operator from Collingwood.  Fans can get to know all 20 Bachelors at Wnetwork.com. Jasmine's journey for love begins with the series premiere of The Bachelorette Canada on September 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on W Network.

Today's Bachelor announcement includes:

Thomas, 30
Regina, Sask.
International Model
After a serious injury put Thomas in a wheelchair and sidelined his construction career, he was forced to take a hard look at his life and his future. He decided it was time to take a leap of faith and entered a local model search in Regina, Sask. Today the 30-year-old travels the world as a successful international model. The extreme highs and lows of his personal journey have shaped Thomas' Zen approach to life, and now he's ready to take another leap of faith in order to find the perfect girl to share it with.

Chris, 30
Calgary, Alta.
Inventor
Quirky, clever and funny, Chris is definitely one-of-a-kind. The 30-year-old inventor is a walking encyclopedia of information and cites his intelligence and creativity as his best attributes. Intense and always thinking, Chris describes his ideal mate as someone who is emotionally intelligent, humble, smart and charismatic. While none of his past relationships have lasted, Chris has remained friends with all of his former girlfriends. Now he's ready to leave the "friend zone" behind to find true love with the Bachelorette.

David, 26
Windsor, Ont.
Musician
David is a born entertainer and he lives his dream every day working as a musician, performing magic tricks for the children at the YMCA and even hosting his own online cooking show. To help him stand out among the 19 other Bachelors, 26-year-old David plans to use a combination of his unique sense of humour and easy-going nature to get the Bachelorette's attention. He wants the Bachelorette to know he's a pretty simple guy at heart who is looking to experience life to the fullest with the woman of his dreams.

Eddie, 32
St. John's, N.L.
Canada's Crush
Eddie is a 32-year-old proud east-coaster who won over the nation, receiving the most online votes to earn the title of Canada's Crush and a coveted spot amongst the 20 Bachelors vying for Jasmine's heart. All of his life, Eddie has worked hard and played harder. Today, he almost has it all: a great job as an oilfield logistics coordinator, lots of friends and a close and loving family. The only thing missing is someone to share it with. Today, he's ready to put his career - and party lifestyle - on hold to find the love of his life.

Taylor, 31
Collingwood, Ont.
Oilfield Equipment Operator
The guys on 31-year-old Taylor's oilfield frac crew might be right when they say he's "too pretty for the patch." At the very least, he has no problem turning heads with his booming voice and confident air. A family man at heart, Taylor lists his mom as his greatest hero for her resiliency and for always putting the needs of her family first. He is ready to build a family of his own and hopes the Bachelorette will prove to be the girl he can't live without.
