We've got sad news, eh? We have adored The Bachelor Canada couple Brad Smith and Bianka Kamber ever since they first met on Season 1 of the show. Now, the couple has sadly announced that their engagement is off.
Brad, 30, a former Canadian Football League star, met nurse Bianka during Brad's stint as the first-ever Bachelor on the Canadian version of the show. Brad picked Bianka — who used to date Kim Kardashian's ex-hubby Kris Humphries — over runner-up Whitney Lee. Brad proposed to Bianka in the show's finale, which aired in November 2012.
The couple had been very happy together since then — well, all Canadians seem to be very happy, but these two were especially so — and had been planning a June wedding. Sadly, Bianka announced their split on her Facebook page on March 19.
"Although we love each other intensely, we both want different things out of life," reads her Facebook post. Bianka writes that they have "heavy hearts" about this news and that they "will always remain an important part of each other's lives."
We must say, we're crestfallen about this, since these two seemed to be a great match. We wish them both the best of luck as they move forward. And so Canada may have a low crime rate, universal health care, and kick-ass maple syrup, but its Bachelor track record is now 0-1, much as ours began.
Are you surprised that Brad and Bianka have split up after almost two years?
