From a media release:
After a two-week campaign with fans voting across the country, todayÂ Corus Entertainmentâ€™sÂ W NetworkÂ reveals thatÂ Eddie, an Oilfield Logistics Coordinator of Saint John, New Brunswick has been chosen asÂ Canadaâ€™s CrushÂ for the first ever season ofÂ The Bachelorette Canada. Eddie and 19 other bachelors willÂ vie for a roseÂ inÂ The Bachelorette Canada,Â premiering this fall on W Network.
Fighting for his chance at love, Eddie campaigned for Canadaâ€™s votes against bachelor hopefuls: Andrew, 29, General Contractor from Ottawa and Lachlan, 26, Physical Education Teacher from Exeter, Ontario.
All of his life, Eddie has worked hard and played harder. Starting out as a labourer in the lucrative (but highly competitive) oil patch, he divided his time between grueling stints on the rigs and serious party time on the ski slopes and beaches with his friends and family. Today, Eddieâ€™s unwavering work ethic and positive attitude have paid off in a big way, landing him a spot at head office (where he is by far the youngest â€“ and most handsome! â€“ face around). But his ride to the top came at a price, leaving him little time to build lasting relationships and find true love.
In the Canadian version of this smash-hit reality series, Canadaâ€™s most eligible bachelorette is in search of the man of her dreams â€“ and hopefully her groom-to-be. The Canadian Bachelorette will search for love as 20 men do whatever it takes to win her heart. The male suitors compete for the Bacheloretteâ€™s affection via individual and group dates involving local and far-flung romantic encounters andÂ adventures in exotic locations around the world. As the Bachelorette narrows the field and the number of men dwindles, romance and tensions will rise. Ultimately, she will choose the one man with whom she wants to spend the rest of her life.
The Bachelorette CanadaÂ is produced by Good Human Productions Inc. From Good Human Productions, Claire Freeland serves as Executive Producer and Keely Booth is Showrunner. For Corus Entertainment, John MacDonald is the Executive Vice President of Television and Head of Womenâ€™s and Family Television and Maria Farano is Director of Original Programming for Womenâ€™s and Family Television.
