I’m a little late to the blogging game on this one but the Bachelor Canada curse strikes again!
It’s over for the Bachelorette Canada star Jasmine Lorimer and her firefighting beau, Kevin Wendt. The two have amicably ended their five month engagement, taking to social media to announce their split.
Are we surprised? No. Dating on reality TV defies the laws of nature and is a sick form of entertainment for us mortals.
Are we sad? Sure.
For me it’s the same as hearing about a car accident. The same questions apply.
First question: “Is everyone OK?”
Second question:”What happened?”
Third question, “Who’s at fault and can you sue?”
The writing was on the wall when the couple chose to forego their press tour following the Bachelorette Finale. In the days when it should have been UTI inducing sexcapades and shameless ring selfies, the couple was keeping a surprisingly low profile.
The British Columbia based beauty and the Toronto based piece of man meat tried to make the relationship work long distance. Which, as someone who’s tried it once can attest, it never works out, and will most likely end in wasted plane tickets and a series of break-up texts.
I enjoyed the premiere season of the Bachelorette Canada and could tell Jasmine and Kevin had some crazy chemistry. It sucks whenever someone has their heart-broken and I wish them both well. Methinks they’ll both find happiness and have lucrative Instagram sponsored ads in the future.
Since this is the third #BachCan relationship to go down the pooper, does this mean the franchise will call it quits?
You may recall both Brad Smith and Tim Whatever-his-name-is broke up with their partners after their seasons wrapped. I’ve been waiting patiently for the next Bachelor Canada to be announced but so far…nothing. Zilch. Bupkis.
Let me say this now, W Network or Slice: I NEED MY BACH FIX. So help me god, you find a way to make this happen with the same determination and can-do attitude that a junkie has when looking for a vein that hasn’t collapsed. Make it work.
Until the new season of the Bachelorette premieres on ABC in May, I’ve been hanging on by a thread with The Real Housewives of Toronto.
You can hear about that show on my podcast Boys Don’t Like Funny Girls.
Who are you hoping is the next Bachelor Canada? Do you think this is it for the franchise?
