Chantelle Harink, a 25-year-old pastor from Sylvan Lake, will be among 25 women vying for the affections of CFL wide receiver Brad Smith on the first season of “The Bachelor Canada”.

Harink, who will be known by her first name only on the show, works as the assistant director of Sunnyside Christian Retreat Centre in Birchcliff. With her mother, she also founded Makaway Kamp, a non-profit camp for underprivileged children.

In her video introduction on the show’s website, Harink said she hasn’t had a lot of experience dating, but that she’s realized she’s ready for love.

“It’s challenging to find guys that respect what I do, but yet see me still as a girl who wants to fall in love,” said Harink in the video.

She lists grapes, dill pickles, and Starbucks coffee as her favourite foods on the show’s website.

The show’s contestants and their relatives are not allowed to speak with the media until they are no longer on the show.

Citytv has announced five new bachelorettes per week in the weeks leading up to the show’s premiere. So far, Harink will appear alongside three other Albertans, including a makeup artist from Wetaskiwin.

Brad Smith has played for the Montreal Alouettes, Toronto Argonauts, and Edmonton Eskimos.

The show will take place in a Victoria mansion. It premiered Oct. 3 on Citytv.
