And Canada’s Bachelor is…Brad Smith??

Other / Canada

Just this week, the identity of Canada’s first ever Bachelor has been revealed to be Brad Smith. (If you ask me, sorta sounds like a sketchy alias that you’d give the police! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Before the words, “Will you accept this rose?” comes out of his mouth, I first would like to know who this guy is!

So after some googling, I discovered that this 28yo has played for the Montreal Alouettes, Toronto Argos, & Edmonton Eskimos. And his father is former CFL commissioner and current Canadian senator, Larry Smith. <– Also another suspect-sounding name.

If Brad has been in the CFL, I’m confused as to why he had to resort to a Canadian spin-off of a relatively-trashy, American reality show in order to find l-o-v-e.

Aside from not being on the up-and-up of all things CFL, I guess I’m also not in the loop in terms of eligible, Canadian bachelors. So Smart Canuck readers, I’m turning to you: Besides Brad Smith (???), who else would be a suitable candidate as Canada’s Bachelor?

    I don’t keep up on heterosexual “Canadian celebrities” so I don’t know who would be a suitable candidate. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wish they’d have a gay edition of this show (either Bachelorette or Bachelor). THEN I’d have some suggestions! ๐Ÿ˜€

    lol, Larry Smith is indeed a real name/person, very liked in the MTL area, though one wonders why his son would go and embarass himself like that

  3. Stephania says:

    I thought of the Property Brothers, but I think they’re gay! Albeit Canadian.

    Too bad Ryan Gosling/Reynolds are too big-time for the small screen!

  4. Guest says:

    Looks like Stephania is looking for attention again… *le sigh*

    I can’t think of any candidates for this show, but I’d never want to partake. Why would any woman want to fight for a guy who’s visibly whoring it out right in front of you???

    Except for those 15 minutes of fame, of course.

    “I’d be honoured to accept that rose, even though I saw you making out with five different women yesterday.”

    And those women who sob uncontrollably about losing the-guy-they-just-met-yet-inexplicably-love are even worse.

  7. tudorchick says:

    hey guest…it seems if stephania is looking for attention “le sigh” again she succeeded with you..ha ha.. *le laugh*

    um me! Though I would never even go on that show as a last resort for finding someone because I think it’s just plain dumb!! How did people find love before reality TV? Oh right they actually left the house and hit up clubs/parties/school/etc and found someone…Yeah I think I will do it the normal way LOL

    BTW I have NEVER heard of this guy before either???

  9. chris says:

    are we kidding. he is NOT attractive at all. bummer. i was looking forward to the show.

  10. Stephania says:

    He is slightly more telegenic than he is photogenic. However, from the interview that I saw of him, he seems a bit…uh…like he plays for the same team, if you know what I mean!

  11. J says:

    They should get John Morris, curler who plays for Kevin Martin. Single and good looking!

  12. Cathy says:

    One word…..fugly!

  13. Dayanara says:

    I was listening to the radio the morning after they announced this (102.1 the edge -Dean Blundel show…so anyone that knows this show they are not kind to things they don’t like).

    Turns out he was “let go” from all the CFL teams he played for and currently works as a bartender at a restaurant. They called up the erstaurant and spoke with the hostess about him, was really funny.

    But yea, I agree he is not the best pick to represent Canada’s first bachelor. Although I still have no idea who would be better.

  14. Leslie says:

    My son. I have been trying to marry that boy off for a while, now.

  15. Angie says:

    Bleck!! he’s butt ugly. And possibly gay. Not that that’s a bad thing…but it is if you’re a single girl!

  16. kathy says:

    i read the Hello! Canada article about him..
    I think he sounds swell. but obviously the show is silly.. i will watch it though.. everythng else on tv is wrapped up for the season

  17. kass says:

    i think he is attractive… but he is a complete idiot for going on the show.. they ALL end horrible.. which is only a given seeing as they have really no clue who the other person truly is.. 15 minutes of fame is all this show is truly about! 10$ says that he will be on the front pages of quite a few gossip magazines when this is all over saying how it went horribly wrong!!!

  18. Jan says:

    To be quite honest I am over this reality show craze. Particularly after seeing how one of the popular (Canadian) shows is filmed and edited. It’s all for the ratings folks. Just another form of marketing a product for mass consumption. Does is matter who the Bachelor is?

  19. Lori says:

    Aw, I expected better behaviour than this from women. We don’t like it when we are judged by our looks. I think a few people here are pretty “ugly” on the inside from the sounds of it. ๐Ÿ™

  20. george says:

    Give Stephania a break! I love her posts. It’s nice to rad something different and if you don’t like it, don’t read it and shut your pie hole!

  21. Cheers says:

    +1 Lori!
    It’s lovely to see how many “haters” the anonymity of the internet brings out… Let’s see, there are comments about his name (umm I’m pretty sure he didn’t choose it), about his “appearing gay” (wow, that is some 1960s mentality if I dare say) and about his physical appearance (how hard is it to say “not my taste” as opposed to “fugly”?).
    It cracks me up to see how bold statements (read insults) are thrown out on the web “’cause I’m hiding behind a handle”. It’d be interesting to see if people are really this mean and judgmental face to face. And if you really are that nasty, don’t think for a second it won’t show when you’re interviewing for a job or making new friends. Good luck to you then, and enjoy the spite you’re spewing.

  22. Natasha says:

    I fully agree with Lori and Cheers. Shame on those of you who enjoy cruelly judging others.

  23. Ron says:

    Why is this child permitted to keep posting in this blog. She constantly posts US deals, errors, and crap like this – doubting the names of popular well known people. Ugh!
