Brad Smith is a CFL free agent. He has previously played for the Argos, and most recently the Edmonton Eskimos.It was confirmed today that CFL free agent Brad Smith is officially Canada’s first Bachelor.  (Even though Bloggity readers had figured it out last week.)

Here’s what you need to know about him:
-He is 28-years-old.
-From the small-town of Hudson, Que.  (Same town as my dad!)
-Fully bilingual.  (It’s Canada, what did you expect?)
-Recently has played for the Edmonton Eskimos, Toronto Argonauts and Montreal Alouettes.
-His father is Larry Smith, former commissioner of the CFL and former president of the Alouettes.

Smith did an interview this morning with Cityline’s Tracey Moore, click here to watch it.

Production of the show is already underway, I believe in the Vancouver-area, and will see some of the girls making international and tropical stops on their way to a potential engagement.

The identity of host and 25 bachelorettes have yet to be announced.

The Bachelor Canada will premiere on Citytv this fall.
