      The Bachelor Canada, which premieres on October 3, has revealed five of the 25 women who will be competing to win CFL football player Brad Smith’s heart.

      One of the first five women to be revealed is Melissa Marie, a 28-year-old single mother from North Vancouver. The brunette beauty is a Playboy model who hopes that her competitive spirit will help her stand out among the other Canadian women.

      Which means she's too *good looking*for average guys & also means *look but don't touch*.

      @ Of Course ......... I highly disagree. She is quite average. I wonder what made her audition for the show and pose for Playboy? Attention perhaps?

      Wow! A cfl player? The crummy football league? Now there's a show i'll never watch. More junk on the tv. Whatever happened to creativity?

      Of Course

      are those their real ages ? I really think each one of them has at least 4 years on what it says... you would think they would at least find girls who were a little younger, prettier is television isnt it?

      so much editing and so many pathetic losers under one roof. If you cant get an agent , a boyfriend/girlfriend here's what you do...AUDITION FOR THE BACHELOR, women with children, women with "sales associate jobs" and women who love to embarrass their families and friends WELCOME! oh and good looks aren't needed.
