Ladies, GIRD YOUR LOINS! There’s fresh blood/meat/optimism in the Bachelor world!
Chris Leroux, a 33-year old retired professional baseball player is going to find love or at least a six month relationship on the upcoming season of the Bachelor Canada which premieres this fall on W Network.
While I hold a grudge with the #BachCan world for not picking my friend Jen to be a contestant on the upcoming season, I must admit that I’m intrigued by their new choice for Bachelor Canada.
The 6 ft 1 Montreal native who calls Toronto home, previously played for the New York Yankees, Florida Marlins and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Impressive stuff, right? While there’s no word on his current form of employment (how you payin’ those bills, Chris?) I’ve decided Chris is either selling insurance or sperm to make money. Either one seems viable.
Although I’m not partial to men who look like an Aryan wet-dream, I am intrigued by the former professional athlete angle. Benefits of dating former athletes are threefold:
1.) They most likely still have abs (muscle memory is a thing)
2.) They’re not on the road so jealous bitches can keep tabs on their mans
3.) “Former” doesn’t appeal to thirsty women trying out in the streets trying to turn a one night fling into 18 years of child-support.
Judging from Chris’s Instagram, I would wager that the franchise’s choice for Bachelor is unlike his predecessors.
Case in point: Dude still uses a filter on his pictures. Which is adorably refreshing and makes my little, cynical, black heart swell to the size of a normal, cynical, black heart. Could there finally be a Bachelor Canada who isn’t looking for fame and protein shakes?
Ladies, form a line. Cash needs a Mom.
Also, unlike previous contestants, Chris is on the other side of thirty. Which is not a big deal, given a certain blogger *ahem* is just about there with him, but it COULD mean Chris is actually ready to settle down and make some plans with a partner.
Is it just me or is finding love on TV less weird given the current app culture? What used to be so foreign and strange now seems like a decent idea to tap into a new pool of prospects and potentially get some free meals, or at the very least the social media following to be accepted to Raya.
Since we know very little about Chris and have yet to stumble across someone willing to spill the dirt on his romantic history, let’s all root for Chris as he begins this journey to find love for the right reasons!
