TORONTO, July 18, 2016 /CNW/ - Fans eagerly awaiting The Bachelorette Canada (#BacheloretteCA) now have their Tuesday night post-episode gab sessions taken care of. W Network announced today it will continue The Bachelorette Canada conversation with a weekly, half-hour, live The Bachelorette Canada After Show (WT) immediately following the broadcast. The hotly anticipated series premieres September 13th at 9 p.m. ET/PT and much-loved Canadian TV legend and long-time Bachelorette franchise fan Jennifer Valentyne will host the After Show. In addition, 'The Bachelorette Canada After Show SuperFan Experience' launches today at wnetwork.com/superfan, where nine lucky SuperFans will be selected from across the country to make a special appearance on the nationally televised After Show with Jennifer.
"The Bachelorette franchise has a strong following of highly engaged fans. As it is such a social show, we want fans to be part of the story and the After Show provides a platform to open up that conversation all season long," said John MacDonald, Senior Vice President, Women and Lifestyle Content, Corus Entertainment. "With a roster of past and present Bachelors and Bachelorettes stopping by to weigh in, fan insights and opinion and long-time TV personality and avid Bachelorette fan Jennifer Valentyne leading that dialogue, the After Show is bound to stir up some interesting discussions."
Produced by Good Human Productions and shot live in Vancouver, each half-hour After Show episode follows Jennifer Valentyne as she dissects the juiciest and most dramatic moments from the latest episode of The Bachelorette Canada. She'll be joined weekly by a rotation of guests including this season's cast members, former Bachelor and Bachelorette cast members, as well as celebrity fans and SuperFan Experience winners from across the country. Jennifer will share questions and comments from viewers, debut deleted scenes, outtakes and exclusive additional content while encouraging fans to join the conversation online.
Starting today, Canadians can visit wnetwork.com/superfan to prove they truly are The Bachelorette Canada's biggest SuperFan for the opportunity to appear on a live After Show episode with Jennifer Valentyne. SuperFans are invited to complete a short, online questionnaire and upload a photo of their best 'Rose Ceremony Reaction'.

In the Canadian version of this widely successful reality series, hosted by Canadian actor and television star Noah Cappe, Jasmine Lorimer is in search of her soul mate – and hopefully her groom-to-be. The 20 male suitors compete for the Bachelorette's affection on individual and group dates involving local and far-flung romantic encounters and adventures in exotic locations around the world. As Lorimer narrows the field and the number of men dwindles, romance and tensions rise. Ultimately, she will choose the one man with whom she wants to spend the rest of her life.
The Bachelorette Canada is produced by Good Human Productions Inc. The series is based on the U.S. format created by Mike Fleiss and produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Sales of the format are handled by Warner Bros. International Television Production.
