If she plays her cards right, Vancouver medical technician Tiana may soon be on the wings of love — and on the arm of commercial pilot Jake Pavelka — as the newest winner of The Bachelor.

Season 14 of the reality TV show begins on Jan. 4, and two of the 25 women vying for Pavelka’s heart hail from the Great White North.

Tiana, 31, will also be competing against Jessie, 25, a cosmetic sales manager from Oakville, Ont. Both women are following in the footsteps of Season 13 contestant Jillian Harris — another Vancouverite.

Harris came in third place in The Bachelor and went on to star in Season 5 of The Bachelorette, in which she rejected Pavelka — a contestant in that season — for winner Ed Swiderski.

• Jillian Harris and Tiana both grew up in Alberta.
