The Bachelor Canada star Brad Smith definitely gets around… and we’re not talking about the lip locks he finds himself in each week with the bevy of single beauties on the reality dating show.

As in past seasons of the American versions of The Bachelor and The Bachleorette, the show’s star and his or her eligible bachelorettes and bachelors head to a number of exotic, luxury travel destinations throughout the series. Past fantasy date destinations have included Curacao, Tahiti, Switzerland and New Zealand.

Brad’s passport stamps have already begun to rival his American Bachelor counterparts’ just a few episodes into the inaugural season of The Bachelor Canada.

In the first episode, Brad met his 25 eligible ladies in rustic Victoria, B.C., where the girls were pampered  at the Westin Bear Mountain Resort. From there, Brad and the ladies were whisked away for dates in New Orleans’ French Quarter and Las Vegas before returning to B.C.

The destinations got increasingly exotic in episode three as Brad and his bachelorettes fly to Riviera Nayarit in Mexico to stay at the uber luxurious Grand Luxxe Resort.

“As we were filming, Brad and the bachelorettes kept commenting on the beauty of the beaches, the great vibe and friendliness of the people and especially, their spectacularly luxurious suites at the Grand Luxxe,” Richard Zarkin, director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau, said in a press release. “We were delighted to show the romance of Riviera Nayarit to Canadians and look forward to welcoming many weddings, honeymoons and romantic travellers to our destination.”

In episode four, Brad and the bachelorettes found themselves in Paris, France for a romantic date and carriage ride around the city. They have also visited Osoyoos, B.C., southwestern Alberta and Sooke, B.C. for dates so far this season.

As Brad gets closer to love and the field of eligible bachelorettes begins to dwindle, viewers can expect even more far-flung romance in the world’s most desirable travel destinations. And, if the romance doesn’t last between Brad and his chosen lady, well… they’ll always have Paris.
