TORONTO, Aug. 8, 2016 /CNW/ - W Network has lifted the veil on the first five of 20 eligible Bachelors contending for roses and Jasmine Lorimer's heart in the first season of The Bachelorette Canada. The suitors revealed today include a deckhand from Vancouver, an occupational therapist from Winnipeg, a bartender from Edmonton, a maitre d' from Montreal, and a firefighter from Waterloo. Canada's first-ever Bachelorette begins her journey to find true love when The Bachelorette Canada premieres September 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on W Network.

The first five Bachelors vying for Jasmine's heart are:

Kevin P, 35
Vancouver, B.C.
Deckhand
Spontaneous and adventurous at heart, Kevin sold everything he owned (except his ukulele!), hit the road to pursue acting and modeling and ended up traveling the globe for four years. Today, he is training to be a deckhand with the goal of creating a life that allows him to continue to live free and explore the world. Kevin is looking for a partner who is free-spirited and ready to jump on board his latest adventure. 

Wale, 28
Winnipeg, Man.
Occupational Therapist
Emigrating with his family from Nigeria has taught Olawale (a.k.a. Wale) that with hard work, perseverance and a great attitude anything is possible. The 28-year-old occupational therapist applies his boundless energy and enthusiasm to everything he does in life, including dating. Outgoing and magnetic, Wale has no problem connecting with people or speaking his mind when the situation calls for it. Wale hopes his outgoing personality will catch the Bachelorette's attention and ultimately win her heart.

Seth, 25
Edmonton, Alta.
Bartender
Twenty-five-year-old Seth is a recent business graduate and bartender with big dreams. For Seth, living a life of mediocrity is not an option, and it's clear he is up for making the most out of every opportunity. The aspiring photographer describes himself as shy, but that hasn't slowed down his dating life. In fact, his aloof and mysterious demeanor tends to attract a lot of female attention.  Seth is confident the Bachelorette will be intrigued by his authenticity, and that she will want to learn more about him and what he has to offer.                                              

Benoît, 29
Montreal, Que.
Maitre D'
As a maître d' in trendy Old Montréal, 29-year-old Benoît is constantly surrounded by a bevy of beauties and yet he is still searching for the love of his life. Benoît dreams of finding a loving wife and starting a family of his own, but he is holding out for the right girl – someone who knows what she wants, has a great sense of humour and is as outgoing and generous as he is. Benoît is ready to sweep the Bachelorette off her feet with his joie de vivre and his sexy, French accent.

Kevin W, 32
Waterloo, Ont.
Ex-Navy/Firefighter
Thirty-two-year-old Kevin is a former Navy man and dedicated firefighter based in Toronto. He has put himself in many dangerous situations over the years, always with the goal of helping others. A family man at heart, Kevin talks to his mom every day and adores his little niece. His dream is to one day have a relationship as strong as his parents' and a family of his own. He firmly believes there is one person out there just for him, and for Kevin, this could be his chance to finally meet her.
