The Bachelor Canada recap, episode 4: a plot to oust the virgin
THE BACHELOR CANADA Episode 4
Something’s rotten in Bachelor Land, and it ain’t the fact that Whitney claims to be 24 years old (though she could easily pass for 35, no?). Here are the facts as we see them: Last week, Chantelle-the-virgin-pastor revealed her lack of sexual experience. You said this was not a problem—and to prove it, you kept her around for another week. But then this week she’s the only one who doesn’t get a date, and then all of a sudden her grandfather passes away. Before you can say “saving it for marriage,” she’s leaving the mansion because she decided attending her grandfather’s funeral was more important.
Does the Bachelor franchise really force contestants to choose between family funerals and eternal love? We highly doubt it. Especially given the logistics—the flight from Victoria (where the mansion is) to Calgary (more or less where Chantelle lives) is only one hour and twenty-five minutes. She could have been there and back in less than a day.
Obviously we’re not saying you orchestrated the sad circumstances (and of course we send our good wishes to Chantelle and family), but it does seem like this crisis provided a convenient way to say so long to the virgin without seeming like a jerk.
Now, a few notes on the four girls that remain. To quote Gabrielle: “Whitney is the devil.” She really is. We agree that this show needn’t be about making BFFs, but her whole I-kill-puppies-for-sport aura is just scary. Gabby seems more obsessed with her hate for Whitney than her love for you, so really, that leaves you with two options: Kara or Bianca.
Kara is fun and sporty and ultimately she has a lot more in common with you than the girl who was once engaged to Kris Humphries, but Bianca seems to have a hold over you, so we’re guessing she’s not going anywhere.
Can’t wait for hometown visits. We’re sort of excited to meet Whitney’s family, mostly because we still need proof that she isn’t a robot sent here to destroy you.

Bianca over Ana and Britany. You are nuts Brad.
Hope this isn’t being shown in US, 98% of the program is taken from US Bachelor but it’s scripted more. Sure wouldn’t want my daughter to even date Brad let alone possibly marry him. It’s painful to think this program represents Canada.
Brad is a git.
Former Bachelor Pad contestant, Jessie Sulidis is voting for Kara. Check out her Bachelor Canada blog – http://topreasonstolovethebachelor.blogspot.ca/2012/10/jessie-sulidis-bachelor-canada-blog_25.html
I totally agree that Whitney does not look 24. And her bad boob job should really be covered up and the moustache removed. Ugh! She may be a good looking man but an ugly woman. You should have kept Ana and Britney.
The host of the show is freakin horrible! Thank god he is really an non-entity in the whole thing but where was he when Brad was having a tough time at the rose ceremony? isn’t the host supposed to sit down with him and provide some advice or at least be his guy in mansion?
Ive enjoyed your columns on this show but have you never had a family member die? You could be there and back in less than a day? What a heartless thing to say. Her grandfather died, not her cat.
That you (I mean YOU) would consider returning to a reality show, hours after returning from a close family members visitation and funeral is unfathomable. Bachelor Canada is at the best of times a ridiculous reality show.
Love the show, love it but I do wonder about the convenience of sending Chantelle home.And Whitney does seem like bad news-what is with the mustache?Is it almost Movember or what?
That’s it !!! Not watching any more of this crazy show .
Can not believe he sent Ana home …beautiful sweet Ana and kept creepy Whitney and mean miserable Gabrielle. This guy is nuts .
Yes, it did seem a little too convenient. Not a great way to kick off a show which could win repeat viewers for Canadian Television. Send the nice ones home that are there for the right reasons and keep the competitor, attention seeking ones. So very sad. And I am a loyal U.S. Bachelor watcher and keep hoping that maybe they will actually try to match the Bachelor/Bachelorettes with people who will make successful long term relationships. There will always be drama in the house, whether you have people there for the right reasons or the wrong reasons so why do the producers not try to get it right and show us that happily ever after does exist sometimes.
Oh, forgot to mention. Why do the producers keep letting people away with breaking the rules? Why don’t people get kicked off for it? Seems a little too convenient that these contestants who we are suppose to dislike always seem to know exactly where to go to find the Bachelor/Bachelorette. What do you think?
What the hell is Brad thinking – keeping Whitney on. She is so fake & very snotty. If she can’t express her feeling now, she will never. WAKE UP BRAD.
I am actually shocked that this is legitimate Tv…I thought I was watching something out of the Middle Ages….The king with his harem.Unbelieveable.The ultimate insult to these women is that they have to win him over in bed…part of the contest I suppose!Laurie
