Season summary

The fifth season of the ABC reality television series The Bachelorette began on May 18, 2009 with a two-hour premiere. The show features Jillian Harris, an interior designer from Peace River, Alberta, Canada, courting 30 men,[1] added from five in previous seasons. This was the first time in The Bachelor and The Bachelorette franchise with 30 suitors. Harris was rejected by Jason Mesnick in the thirteenth season of The Bachelor; she was the second runner-up.

Harris is the first ever non-American selected for The Bachelorette as she is from Canada.

The couple were engaged but broke their engagement in July 2010.[2]
