The season finale of the Bachelorette Canada airs next Tuesday, November 22nd on the W Network, and fans are waiting with baited breath to see who gets the final rose from Jasmine Lorimer.
The Vancouver based hair stylist and model has been on the hunt for love and has narrowed down her list of suitors to the final two: Mikhel, an aviation engineer from Ottawa, Kevin W., a firefighter and former member of the Canadian Navy.
Who will Jasmine pick?
I think I’ve got a pretty good idea – so let’s dive in.
Firstly, you should know that I love the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise more than I love some/most of my family members. I would take a bullet for Chris Harrison (so long as it was not to the face, major organ, and was merely a flesh wound to give me street cred).
If I were a betting woman (and I’m not because I’m too scared), I would put all of my fictional money on Kevin W., the family oriented, zanerobe wearing, tattooed firefighter. Here’s why:
Location, location, location
Kevin works in Hamilton and lives in Toronto. As we’ve seen from earlier episodes, Jasmine shows zero signs of moving anywhere but up in the world. The Vancouver babe expressed concerns about having a life in Winnipeg with contestant Mike earlier in the season, but Toronto seems the ideal speed for Jasmine, with lots of opportunities for her to work as a hair stylist.
Sure, Jasmine’s attracted to Mikhel, but anyone looking at Kevin W and Jasmine would swear this is a real-life couple. From how they greet each other on dates, to the way he casually slips the word “Babe” into conversations, methinks these two have done some body karate. That matters, people. It matters.
Mikhel unfortunately went a little emo after the hometown dates and has expressed some doubt about his future Jasmine. Kevin W, alternatively, has expressed fear of a future without Jasmine, but seems dead set on getting a Michael Hill ring on her itty-bitty ring finger before the show is finished. Calling it now: 3 carat oval cut diamond, no halo.
Since I’m an unapologetic creep, I look for all the contestants online for any clue to who the winner is. Kevin W. loves social media, and social media loves Kevin W. (Can i stop saying W?) Recently, Kevin cut his hockey hair. Thank Christ.
Sure, haircuts are a part of self care, but you know what would prompt a change in appearance?
A girlfriend who’s a hair stylist.
Will there be a Bachelor follow-up?
I’ve loved this first season of the Bachelorette Canada, and thoroughly hope Good Human Productions gets the green-light for a follow-up season of the Bachelor Canada.
Sure, I think that some of this season’s contestants vying for Jasmine’s were riff raff and Tinder predators, but I think there’s real potential to have a Brad Smith caliber Bachelor again (Brad if you’re reading this, I still love you even though you have no eyebrows – let’s make-out).
Here is an open letter I’ve penned to Good Humans and the W Network about the desperate need for a Bachelor Canada Season 3
Dear Good Human and W Network Big Wigs,
As a devout fan and live-tweeter of all things Bachelor/Bachelorette, I must implore you to consider Mike Ogilvie as the next Bachelor Canada.
Yes, I know convincing a woman to follow a man to Winnipeg would be a hard sell, but I think it can be done if you never, ever mention Winnipeg – or, mention Winnipeg with a super quick cut to Mike’s topless body, there will be a gaggle of single women lined up to live in a city with one week of summer a year.
Mike looks like he drinks milk. Not just milk, but whole milk. That kind of appeal is universal, and combined with his job in a uniform, and his love of animals and little children, you’ve basically got all the components needed for a real life, female wet dream.
Emotionally damaged? Even better.
This show would be gold. I think you would have another hit on your hands.
I think you owe it to your viewers, and this country, to order another season of the Bachelor Canada.
Who do you think Jasmine will pick?
