Wondering what to do next? You're not alone.

Wondering what to do next

I read somewhere that Canadians are spending more time on-line than watching TV.

They say 18 hours a week on the Internet and just 17 hours a week watching TV.

So, there are 168 hours in a week, we sleep 56, work 40, tv and net 35.

That leaves 37 hours a week of nothing?

That does explain why I spend 5.286 hours a day staring off into space wondering what to do next. -Mike

Chris Harrison
Chris Harrison host of the US version

The Bachelor Canada will air this fall! It will be a Canadian version of the hit show and will be shot this spring. Right now they are seeking potential Bachelorettes at CityTV.com/BachelorCanada. Mike’s top five differences between the American Bachelor and the Canadian Bachelor.
#5. We feel the need to spell it with a “u”. B-a-c-h-e-l-o-u-r.
#4. Instead of the host downing Margaritas in between segments, everyone passes around a giant beer.
#3. I don’t think the American version of the show has a Zamboni segment, does it?
#2. Roses cost a lot more up here, so instead, there will be a dandelion ceremony.
#1. Bachelors are selected from a pool of rejected contestants from Canada’s Worst Driver, Canada’s Worst Handyman and Man Tracker. Sorry ladies!
