I am always curious to know how seemingly normal human beings end up looking for a life-partner on a reality show. 27-year-old Kenora Hair-Stylist Jasmine Lorimer recently spoke to BCliving about why she decided to take the leap and audition for The Bachelorette Canada.
“I was approached by a friend of mine who had a cousin in casting and they had asked her if I might be interested. I guess they saw some photos and wanted to know a little bit more about me. So I met the production team and it was really good!
It also sounded like a great idea. I’d love to meet someone and here are 20 hand-picked guys looking for the same thing so I’m bound to meet someone out of that. Plus, I’m also kind of an adventurous person so why not do it this way?
But yeah, it was after meeting the production team and realizing that they actually genuinely care about the relationships. I mean they’re making a show, but their big focus is making sure that everyone’s comfortable. At least I felt like that, and that was my experience with it. They cared about me, and they cared about the relationships and it felt like that from the start. That’s the reason why I was so confident and comfortable going into it. I never felt alone.”
Wow, it sounds so much more friendly and less rigorous than the US Bachelor casting process. Interestingly the Canadian Bachelorette only gets 20 suitors to pick from in lieu of the US 25.
Jasmine is no stranger to try-outs. Here she is in 2014 when she won a modeling contest for Red Dragon…
This is the inaugural season of the Bachelorette Canada.
The Bachelorette Canada airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on W Network.
Meet Jasmine’s guys….
