Brad Smith: officially Canada’s most eligible bachelor
By PostCity.com staff
CFL footballer Brad Smith has been chosen as The Bachelor Canada's first ever Bachelor
After an intense search through the nation’s unmarried men, The Bachelor Canada team have finally found their guy. CityTV announced today that Canada’s first Bachelor will be 28-year-old Canadian footballer Brad Smith. The show has yet to announce the names of the 25 bachelorettes who will be competing to receive a rose from him, so while the nation waits with bated breath for that news, let’s distract ourselves with a closer look at Mr. Smith.
He’s sporty. Smith is a CFL free agent who previously played wide receiver for the Montreal Alouettes, the Toronto Argonauts and, more recently, the Edmonton Eskimos.
He knows the language of love. Smith hails from from Hudson, Quebec. Coming from La Belle Province means he speaks French — expect him to use this talent to induce swooning at opportune moments.
His dad is kind of a big deal. Daddy Bachelor is Larry Smith, a former running back and president of Montreal Alouettes as well as a former commissioner of the CFL. Smith Sr. is currently a member of the Senate, having been sent there by Steven Harper in 2010.
He’s not very decisive. In the “20 Questions with Bachelor Brad” media release, the CityTV PRs ask him if he's a boxers or briefs guy. The answer: boxer briefs. Asked to make a choice between small towns and big cities, he likes both. Vanilla or chocolate ice cream? Vanilla ... with chocolate. Are you seeing the trend?
The Bachelor Canada will premier on CityTV this fall.
