Jennifer Valentyne is the Host of The Bachelor Canada After Show! In addition to being the highly recognized, warm and smiling face of Breakfast Television’s ‘Live Eye’ segment for 23 years, her versatility allowed her to easily transition to co-host the show in studio. Each day, viewers woke up to her lively and informative segments from around the city and sometimes the world, which she helped create and produce. Her ability to touch the hearts of people from all walks of life is what makes her endearing and her down to earth demeanor makes everyone feel like they know her as their friend.

While attending Centennial College for Radio and Television Broadcasting, Jennifer was the Key590 radio station Cash Car Girl. She was also an intern at MuchMusic and after graduation obtained a full-time position as a Graphics Operator in hopes of becoming a VJ. She then moved over to morning television in the memorable role of the singing weather girl. Over the course of her career, Jennifer has interviewed celebrities such as Sir Richard Branson, Billy Crystal, Suzanne Sommers and Jason Sudeikis, but her passion has always been people in the community. She has the exceptional gift of unearthing their fascinating stories and sharing them in a meaningful way.

Jennifer was a founding member of the comedy troupe "On the Off Ramp" and studied improv at The Second City, where she worked with one of the originals Joe Flaherty on character building. She has also been writing songs and singing jazz since she was a teenager and went on tour after releasing two CDs.

Jennifer is deeply fulfilled by giving back to the community with volunteer initiatives and is actively involved with Camp Oochigeas, The Children’s Breakfast Club, Dreams Take Flight, Habitat for Humanity and World Vision.

For Jennifer, family comes first. She is married to her former camera operator Greg, now founder of Heroes Beer. She has two beautiful teenage children, Jackson and Georgia who are the light of her life.
