‘The Bachelorette Canada’ coming this fall with Jasmine Lorimer as lead

Bachelorette -Remember “The Bachelor Canada“? It feels like it’s been a long time since we had that, but this fall, the W Network north of the border is making a new version of the franchise with “The Bachelorette Canada.” Not only that, but they’ve also announced their lead!

Per a press release, the woman selected to be the first Bachelorette from the country is Jasmine Lorimer, a 27-year old hairstylist from Kenora, Ontario. The release describes her with the following:

“A small-town girl at heart, 27 year-old Lorimer’s artistic nature and adventurous spirit drew her to the beauty industry and the West Coast. Her free spirited, down-to-earth approach to life, coupled with a warm and radiant disposition, make Jasmine the perfect choice for this romantic adventure of a lifetime. Refreshingly open, honest and not afraid to laugh at herself, Canadians nationwide will fall in love with Jasmine as she risks it all to find ‘the one.'”

Meanwhile, there’s also a statement from Lorimer herself saying the following:

“It is such an honour to be Canada’s first Bachelorette … This opportunity came at the perfect time for me and I couldn’t be more prepared to embark upon this lifelong adventure.”

Noah Cappe (“Carnival Eats” on Food Network Canada) is going to serve as the show’s host, and there will be twenty men fighting to win her heart. We have no idea how this is going to end up faring, but any extension of “The Bachelor” franchise has the potential to be fun.
