TORONTO - Four more ladies have been shown the door on "The Bachelor Canada."
Former CFL player Brad Smith narrowed the field down to 12 suitors following a group date to New Orleans, a spin around a Las Vegas racetrack, and romantic one-on-one getaways to Tofino, B.C. and Victoria.
"The Bachelor Canada" is based on the popular U.S. reality series. The 29-year-old Smith is a former wide receiver for the Montreal Alouettes, Toronto Argonauts and Edmonton Eskimos.
The departing bachelorettes are: 23-year-old medical student Laura F. from Winnipeg, 28-year-old Playboy model Melissa Marie from Vancouver, 26-year-old petroleum land administrator Michelle V. from Calgary, and 32-year-old model/neuroscientist Stephanie from Montreal.
Next week, Smith and the bachelorettes explore a cattle ranch in Calgary and head to sunny Mexico.
"The Bachelor Canada" airs Wednesdays on Citytv.
