A televised quest for true love returns to our screens this October when The Bachelor Canada lands on W Network.

This year, it’s the turn of former MLB pitcher Chris Leroux to take on the mantle of the country’s most eligible bachelor, as he attempts to find true love among a cornucopia of Canuck crushes.

And all for our entertainment.

The series doesn’t arrive on our screens until Wednesday, October 11, but we’ve been given a sneak peek at some of the women who will be looking for love this year.

So, from an Ontarian mermaid to a Calgarian pageant queen, here are 10 of the women who will be vying to get their hands on Chris’, *cough*, rose.
