Tyler Harcott is the host of The Bachelor Canada, the romantic reality series returning to City fall 2014.
Harcott is a Canadian TV personality originally from Calgary, Alberta, who began his entertainment career in radio as a disc jockey in Red Deer, Alberta. It wasn’t until he travelled halfway around the world to Hong Kong before he moved into television where he hosted a trio of programs for StarTV.
Through his work with StarTV, Harcott got to indulge in one of his greatest passions – travel. He had the pleasure of experiencing the wonders of South East Asia and the Middle East, hosting shows in culture-rich locales such as India, Dubai and Indonesia to name a few.
He returned to Canada and began hosting, writing and producing the nightly live entertainment show “Wired” for A-Channel Calgary.
Harcott moved then to Los Angeles and got the opportunity to host an American high stakes, daredevil stunt show “I Dare You!” for UPN. This created an even bigger opportunity for him when he landed the host role for the Emmy-nominated series “Junkyard Wars” for TLC.
Eventually Tyler left the junkyard and relocated to New York City where he helmed his first design-themed program, Style Network’s “Guess Who’s Coming To Decorate?” This was clearly not enough excitement for him as he simultaneously made his network debut as host of the design competition show “The Complex: Malibu” for FOX.
Harcott’s steady stream of successful host roles gained him a solid reputation in the industry with his own unique style and personality that sets him apart. He broadened his hosting resume when he took on one of the most interesting challenges of his career – living on a cruise ship with 50 Miss America pageant contestants and hosting TLC’s “Miss America: Countdown To The Crown.”
Outside of work, Tyler enjoys playing hockey, traveling and attending tea parties hosted by his daughter.
