Much fuss was raised three years ago when Canadian Jillian Harris played the starring role in The Bachelorette, the reality series where dozens of men compete for the heart of one lucky lady.  When Jillian and co. swung by Vancouver for a romantic trip, it was the talk of the town and nearly front-page news.

Now we’ve really got something to talk about.  Next week, The Bachelor Canada premieres – and it was all filmed right next door on Vancouver Island.
