Here's Everything You Need to Know About Bachelor Contestant Serena Pitt

Joining an incredible cast on the 25th season of The Bachelor, 22-year-old Serena Pitt is a believer that when it comes to love, when you know, you know. Although she's set to follow her heart while getting to know Bachelor Matt James, the contestant also has a competitive streak– and we can't wait to see how that plays out, too. Pitt has a friendly, hilarious personality, and although she's typically a logical person, she's ready for the adventure of a lifetime on this season. Ahead, find nine facts about Pitt, from her biggest passions to her very surprising bucket list.


She's a Publicist From Toronto, Canada

One of just a few Bachelor contestants not hailing from the U.S., 22-year-old Pitt lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada where she works as a publicist. Just graduated from university in 2019, Pitt is living out her dreams in The Six.


According to Pitt, She's Chronically Hangry

Pitt told ABC that she is chronically hangry, and she's a serious lover of all things food (we can relate!). She told the network that her future partner HAS to be willing to share his food with her, so Matt, if you're reading – now you know. Pitt even said, "if they don't let me taste their food, I don't know if the relationship could survive." The contestant also takes her love of food to the next level with her one wish: to have a pet chicken so she could have a pet and an endless supply of eggs all in one.


She's a WLU Alumni

Pitt is a Wilfrid Laurier University grad, which prepared her for career as a publicist. She graduated in June 2019 and said on her Instagram that the Laurier brought "amazing friends and enough memories to last a lifetime."


She Loves Traveling, and Has Been Around the World

The new Bachelor cast member adores traveling, and does so often. Pitt has posted pictures in Budapest, the Bahamas, Nashville, Miami Beach, and more, always with a huge smile on her face! Almost all her travels are with groups of friends that she clearly treasures.


She Was on the WLU Competitive Dance Team

Pitt has a passion for dance that has extended from her younger years all the way to her days at WLU. She was on the Competitive Dance Team at her university, where she could be seen hanging out with a huge group of dancers and loving every minute of it. Upon graduation, Pitt even said she was "looking at my life without CDT and not liking it." She also danced competitively before college, posting photos in competitions and dance class.


When it Comes to Love, She's All About Having Fun and Growing in Life Together

Pitt loves low-key yet exciting hangouts and sees herself with a man who enjoys those things too. She told ABC that she is "looking to find a man who will enjoy spending quality time with her—whether they are having beers at a low-key bar or sitting courtside at a Toronto Raptors' game." In a sense, she's all about having adventures, no matter where they are.


Her Bucket List Pick is Pretty Unexpected

Although Pitt has a thrill-seeking heart, what with her love of traveling and competitive dance, her bucket list is surprisingly simple. She told ABC that learning how to change a tire is at the top of her bucket list, which shows her logical, responsible side.


Nowadays, She's Opening Her Heart Up to Love and Forgetting the Rules

The 22-year-old doesn't let age faze her. She says that true love can happen "no matter what your age is," and although she's typically a logical thinker, she's "throwing her rulebook out the window." She hasn't found love yet, because she has always led a "disciplined lifestyle" and hasn't ever taken the time to pursue a relationship. That being said, she's hoping she feels an intense connection the minute she meets Matt.


She's All About Ambition and Drive

When describing her ideal partner, Pitt told ABC that she "needs a man with ambition who will be her teammate in life." Her competitive streak, hailing from her time as a dancer, is sure to come out in her relationship, and she needs someone who's as full of drive as she is!
