Brad Smith was born on October 2, 1983, in Hudson, Quebec. His father is Larry Smith, a Canadian Senator, former CFL Commissioner, and former President and CEO of the Montreal Alouettes, and his mother is Leesa Smith. He received a scholarship at St. Andrew's College, and later advanced to Queen's University. During his football career, Brad had several seasons with a variety of teams: Montreal Alouettes, Toronto Argonauts, and the Edmonton Eskimos. Living as a professional athlete, Brad adjusted to living an upbeat and on-the-go lifestyle; however, this meant that he never had the opportunity to seek "true love." This feeling led him to audition for The Bachelor Canada, where he had high hopes of finding love and starting a family.
