Maria Garcia Sanchez is a hopeless romantic. Failing to find love in Bachelor in Paradise Canada season 1, she’s returned to the show for its second installment, and this time, she’s ready to let her guard down.
Let’s get to know her better as this Maria Garcia Sanchez Bio proceeds.
Maria Garcia Sanchez On Bachelor In Paradise Canada
Bachelor in Paradise Canada returned for its second season on May 8, 2023, and fans were pleased to see the returning star Maria Garcia Sanchez amongst the 27 singles looking for love. This time, Maria was searching for “someone with a thirst for knowledge, a positive outlook on life, empathy towards others.”
“Giving this love thing a second chance @bachparadiseca,” she wrote on her IG.
As for the “first chance,” she tried her luck with Joey and Brendan. Sadly, the former blew Maria off making it clear that he had a deep connection with Vay — which didn’t make Vay any less jealous of the time Joey spent with Maria or the way he talked about her.
On the other hand, Brendan told Maria he was “definitely open” to “meeting new people and seeing if there’s possibility there.” But the thing was, Brendan was already seeing Angela — which he justified by saying he and Angela had talked “in the past” about allowing each other to go on dates with new people.
Naturally, Angela then summoned Brendan for a chat. But he insisted to go on a date with Maria and asked her to just focus on what they had while also giving him “respect.” Basically, he was unsympathetic to her distress, leaving her with a non-committal “Chat with you later,” not even a hug or a peck on the cheek.
Anyway, Maria and Brenda then shared a pool date. They stripped down to white bathing suits and threw paint on a drop sheet and each other, eventually rubbing it on each other’s bodies. Later, the pair then headed to a beach bed — even though Brenda still had feelings for Angela.
Next week, nighter Maria nor Angela were happy with Brendan. Eventually, Maria came out of the show single.
