The Bachelor is coming to Canada and not just on an extravagant date. The Bachelor Canada, from Force Four Entertainment and Citytv, was announced this morning.
The Bachelor Canada will have 9 episodes, with pre-production starting in the spring. Starting today, they are kicking off a nation-wide casting call for single ladies who would like to find love on reality television.
From this morning’s press release: “The Bachelor has long been a fan favourite on Citytv and we look forward to putting a Canadian spin on this thriving franchise,” said Claire Freeland, Director of Original Programming, Rogers Media, and Executive Producer of The Bachelor Canada. “Canada is brimming with eligible bachelors and bachelorettes and we’re excited to offer them the opportunity to embark on their own quest for love through this entertaining series.”
While the bachelor himself hasn’t yet been announced, ladies can fill out a form online in the meantime to throw their hat in the ring. The show is slated to start filming in the fall.
