Review: Who did Tim choose on The Bachelor Canada?

After weeks of trauma and tears, backstabbing and booze, it all came down to Tuesday night on The Bachelor Canada. Well, sort of. Tim Warmels won’t reveal who he chose to be his betrothed–or at the very least his bestie–until next week, but the groundwork for his oh-so-important decision was laid.

In one corner was Trish, the big-city former beauty pageant participant who likes hockey and is open about her feelings. In the other corner was April, the quiet, more reserved gal who played her cards close to the chest. Which one would win Tim’s heart? The fact that Trish already loved him while April was still working on her deep feelings may have given the former an edge over the latter, but nothing was clear cut.

Tahiti served as the backdrop to a pineapple plantation picnic and dinner with Trish that led to the dreaded–or exciting–fantasy suite invite from Tyler Harcott. Did Tim’s heart do a stutter-stop when Trish nodded yes that she wanted some alone time with him? We’ll never know, but he did hop up and offer his hand to her. No word on if they skipped dessert for this or whether dinner was actually done by that point. (How funny would it have been if they’d opened the door to the suite and Tyler was stretched out on the bed? Listen, it’s been a long season, OK? Gimme some leeway on stupid comments.)

April and Tim headed off the coast of Tahiti for a cruise around in a yacht. The mood was tempered a bit by April’s concerns that Tim might choose Trish over her, which would shatter the already fragile brunette. Their jump off the side of the boat represented April’s hesitant leap of faith in Tim that everything would be OK, but she still wasn’t sure. Words like “scared,” “might be falling in love,” and “but” threw up red flags all dinner long, so I was a little surprised that she chose to spend time with Tim in the fantasy suite. I think he would have been OK with it if she declined.

Of course, Tim couldn’t make this all-important life decision on his own, so he called on his mom and dad to help out. Peter was immediately enthralled by Trish’s outgoing personality, but Marg was more suspicious and whipped out a list of questions for Trish to answer. Trish needn’t have worried; after saying she wanted a family she had Marg in the palm of her hand.

Not so for April, whose walk to Tim’s parents’ cabana looked like she was headed to the electric chair. If this was a job interview, April wouldn’t have gotten the gig. Her reluctance to look Peter and Marg in the eye, her stammered answers and repeated “ums” certainly could have been the work of careful editing by the producers to make April look like the underdog, but I don’t think so. Her request to see Tim, followed by a tearful “I want to go home,” would seem to have sealed April’s fate.

We won’t find out who Tim chooses until next week, but at this point it appears Trish is his best fit.

The Bachelor Canada finale airs next Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET followed by the After the Final Rose special at 8:30 p.m. ET on City.

  1. Unfortunately I see April as a mentally and emotionally unstable individual. What does Tim know of her background? How will she cope when she begins to have her own children, when she is so easily overwhelmed? It will take a lot of trust and possibly a lot of time in the future to help her deal with life’s issues, it seems, not just for Tim but his family.

    1. I wanted April, but what I saw last week, I have changed my mind. April still needs to mature and really think what she really wants.
      She is very pretty, nice and pretty but what would happen in the real life with Tim. This relationship will not survive. With Trish, this might work, but Tim must set the rules with a beauty queen. No diva, no drama, just be yourself. Moving to Toronto will be a big step with Trish. But I still like Trish.

  2. April is a flake and should go home. If Tim chooses her, he will have a big task on his hands. She is too immature and is not ready for a proposal! How can she be a good realtor when she has no confidence and is a afraid to even speak!! She will be a very bad match for Tim and he should let her go home now! Why waste your life on a very maintenance “child”!!

    1. April is the best for tim ,because she is depend on God everything she make disetion. She is very gentle and kind.

  3. April is being realistic about this crazy process She’s is 100% correct! It’s too soon to fall in love and accept a proposal after 6 weeks. Very smart girl to question it all.

    I have to question Trish’s maturity and how ready she is for marriage when she is flashing boobs to producers according to the “Anuj” clip on the bachelor Canada website.

    1. I totally agree with you. Trish is VERY superficial and shallow, that’s why she fit right in with this type of reality show. She was sooo weird and loud throughout the show that it became annoying!!!! She has wayyyy too much energy and is your typical girl who falls in love right away! Please! April IS your example of a genuine, honest and loyal girl which is the PERFECT recipe for a LONG LASTING relationship! She was the ONLY normal one there. PERIOD.
