‘The Bachelorette’ Meets the Rocky Mountaineer

British Columbia and reality TV: together at last.
For any BC-philes out there who want to catch an eyeful of Canada’s westernmost province (and don’t mind swallowing a televised dating show to do so), here’s a heads-up that “The Bachelorette” kicks off a three-episode tour tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
Bachelorette Jillian will bring her remaining suitors north of the border to her hometown, Vancouver, for sea kayaking, curling and—I hope for their sake—a taste of the city’s abundant Asian food offerings. Next week brings adrenaline thrills in Whistler and, on June 22, the trip concludes with a ride on the Rocky Mountaineer—from everything I’ve heard, a trip that is jaw-hits-tray-table stunning.
If you can tolerate the cheesy storylines, suitors and roses, there is the potential for some serious travel porn here. Or, you can skip the rose ceremony and just check out this preview of the ride:
Come to think of it, the promo might be just as corny as the show. Still makes me want to pull out the credit card and book my seat, though. How about you?
