If you’re having no-strings-attached sex with your roommate, you can’t be on The Bachelor Canada
The Bachelor is a reality show that gets people talking, so it was only a matter of time before Canada got its very own weekly one-hour look into the world of insane women who vie for the attention of one presumably wealthy and attractive single man. But ladies, while you may check out on the “will do anything for screen time and public lip-locking” front, certain rules and regulations may keep you from being selected to compete. To be eligible, a candidate must be in line with the show’s definition of single—they must not be involved in a committed intimate relationship (those in a committed, intimacy-free relationship are good to go!), in a common-law co-habitation relationship involving physical intimacy (do you live at Melrose Place? Sorry, no Bachelor for you), or in a monogamous dating relationship lasting two months or longer. People who use reality TV as a vehicle for stardom are notoriously honest, hardworking people, so we can’t see anyone doing anything unspeakable, like pretending they’re not married or not shtupping their roommate. This application is absolutely foolproof.
