TORONTO, Canada  The countdown to W Network’s first season of The Bachelor Canada begins as the series debuts Wednesday, October 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Canada’s bachelor, Chris Leroux starts his search for love as 20 beautiful bachelorettes vie to capture his heart. From a mermaid based out of St. Catharines, to a humanitarian/pageant queen from Calgary, to a lawyer/meditation coach from Toronto, W Network unveils the first 10 women ready to join Chris in his journey for love.

Meet the first 10 bachelorettes vying for a coveted rose:

Brittany M, 27

Humanitarian/Pageant Queen
Humanitarian and pageant queen Brittany is always poised and perfectly together. But don’t let the pageant smile fool you, Brittany loves a bit of drama. She’s bringing everything to the table – “mind, body and soul” – in hopes of winning the Bachelor’s heart.

Catie, 29
Toronto, Ont.
Lawyer/Meditation Coach
Catie started meditating as an articling student, and it changed her life. The lawyer and mediation coach has spent a lot of time “figuring herself out” – all she needs now is someone who can truly appreciate all she has to offer. Catie is hoping that her optimism and enthusiasm for life will set her apart and catch the Bachelor’s attention.

Dee, 32
Kitchener, Ont.
Spray Tan Business Owner
Dee is a spray-tan business owner and a self-proclaimed “princess tomboy” who loves to ride and race dirt bikes. Her daughter means more to her than anything in the world, and she’s hoping to meet a funny, considerate, and kind-hearted man to help make their lives complete.

Jessie, 25
Emo, Ont.
Youth Care Practitioner
This reformed rebel has a cause! Jessie was once kicked out of her parents’ house for being too rebellious, but has since turned her life around and now counts her family as her biggest support system. Today, she has her master’s degree and is dedicated to helping at risk youth. Jessie has come a long way and she’s hoping the Bachelor will join her for the rest of the ride!

Kait, 29
Victoria, B.C.
Luxury Travel Nomad
Kait is a self-proclaimed “luxury travel nomad” with a jet-setting lifestyle and a recently broken heart.  After spending the last five years globetrotting, Kait has returned to Canada to start a new chapter. She’s looking for a man she can trust… could the Bachelor be her next travel companion?

Lisa, 24
St. Catharines, Ont.
Graphic Designer/Mermaid
Quirky Lisa is one-of-a-kind. She makes her own mermaid costumes and loves “mermaiding” in public. She adores squirrels and has amassed a huge online following as the internet “Squirrel Girl.” Lisa has never been in love before, but she’s hoping to find her happily ever after with the Bachelor.

Lyndsey, 23
Vancouver, B.C.
Publicist
Lyndsey is a successful publicist who is not afraid to take chances, having moved to New York City when she was only 19 to start her career. Not easily rattled and wise beyond her years, she prides herself on being able to hold her own in any situation. Lyndsey may be young, but she’s ready to find “her person” and begin a love story.

Meghan, 24
Deer Lake, N.L.
Waitress
Meghan may be working as a waitress in her small Newfoundland hometown, but she considers herself a city girl at heart. Unlucky in love, Meghan admits to being impulsive and falling hard and fast for all the wrong guys. She is looking for a man who will be committed to her and have her back, and she’s hoping the Bachelor will be The One.

Pricilla, 32
Vancouver, B.C.
Performer
Music may be her passion but there’s definitely room in Pricilla’s heart for another great love! While this singer/songwriter has no problem meeting men, she wants more than just physical attraction. Pricilla’s looking for a partner she can grow with mentally, spiritually and emotionally…is the Bachelor up for the challenge?

Stacy, 25
Victoria, B.C.
Restaurant Manager
Stacy knows exactly what she wants – she just hasn’t found it yet. The restaurant manager has never been in a serious relationship, but can’t wait to find the person with whom she can spend the rest of her life. Level headed and family oriented, Stacy is holding out for a stand-up guy who shares her values.
