‘The Bachelor Canada’ contestants revealed: Meet the final 10 women
After Wednesday’s big reveal of the first 10 women looking for love on The Bachelor Canada, W Network has now revealed the final 10, making it a grand total of 20 women vying for bachelor Chris Leroux‘s heart.
While some of the women in the first group had unorthodox occupations — like a mermaid and a “self-proclaimed luxury travel nomad” — this second group heads back into more traditional territory, with two nurses, a business owner and a medical secretary, among others.
Here’s a glimpse of the remaining bachelorettes for this season of Bachelor Canada.
Hometown: Vancouver, B.C.
Occupation: Business Analyst
Family comes first for April, whose supportive parents and sisters form the backbone of her social world. Raised as a first-generation Canadian to Vietnamese immigrant parents, she believes marriage is about teamwork. She is hoping the Bachelor is the perfect addition to an already close-knit crew and is as ready as she is to get started on his own family.
Hometown: Sooke, B.C.
Athletic Ashley knows what she wants and is strong enough to go get it. Not afraid to listen to her heart, Ashley once called off a wedding knowing marriage wasn’t the right thing for her at the time. Today, she is ready to settle down and hopes the Bachelor is ready to jump into the next adventure with her.
Hometown: Surrey, B.C.
Occupation: Business Owner
This blonde bombshell loves to laugh and is looking for a partner who shares her optimistic, happy-go-lucky attitude. Close to her family and proud of her faith, Brittany may be up for any adventure but she also has a five-year plan that includes a husband and family of her own. She’s hoping the Bachelor is ready to follow her lead.
Hometown: Lethbridge, Alta.
Occupation: Psychiatric Nurse
This die-hard Blue Jays fan is hoping to hit a home run with the Bachelor. Chelsea broke off her engagement last spring when she realized she was literally taking her work home as she tried to “fix” her troubled fiancé. Her goal today is to find a solid man who shares her passionate, no-holds-barred approach to life.
Hometown: Baltimore, Ont.
Occupation: Automotive Financial Manager
Lara is a self-described country girl in city-girl clothes who is looking for an easygoing guy to bring balance to her life. The first person in her family to attend university, she’s a high achiever who hopes the Bachelor is a man who can appreciate her loyal, genuine nature.
Hometown: North Bay, Ont.
Occupation: Medical Secretary
Trained dancer Madelaine may have learned to be disciplined at the National Ballet School, but just like her weakness for chocolate, she has a major soft spot for true love. Growing up with 11 siblings has taught her the importance of family, and she’s ready to start one of her own with the Bachelor.
Hometown: Winnipeg, Man.
Occupation: Fashion PR
Fearless and independent, Mikaela struck out on her own at the age of 19 to begin a new life in the big city. With talent and sheer determination, she managed to make her mark in the competitive fashion industry and she hasn’t looked back since. She’s hoping the Bachelor will be exactly her style.
Hometown: Toronto, Ont.
Occupation: Aspiring Model
Shaleen has a gorgeous smile, goofy personality and a whole lot of sass. She likes to go after what she wants and she isn’t afraid to “pull out the claws” to get it. Confident in who she is, Shaleen is ready to take the plunge and fall in love.
Hometown: Winnipeg, Man.
Occupation: Real Estate Student
Shanti is an over-the-top diva and a self-described “open-minded romantic.” Not afraid to share her opinions, she’s looking for someone who isn’t intimidated by a strong woman. Shanti is hoping the Bachelor will be the “real man” she’s been looking for.
Hometown: Dublin, Ireland
Occupation: Executive Assistant
Though she grew up in Ireland, Stephanie was born in Canada and has always wanted to put her passport to good use. She came to Vancouver with her boyfriend, looking for a bit of adventure… but instead, they promptly broke up. Stephanie has managed to build a life on her own in Canada. Now all that’s missing is a nice Canadian boy.
