'Bachelorette' Star

Homeless in Vancouver

...Temporarily

Exclusive Details

1112_jillian-ha-rris_tmzcompositeEx "Bachelorette" Jillian Harris is moving into a cardboard box, in the brutal cold of Canada -- and while the economy does suck that much -- Jillian's actually choosing to do this for charity.

Jillian -- who was on Season 5 of the ABC show -- tells TMZ she's going to spend a night on the streets of Vancouver with nothing more than a sleeping bag and a piece of cardboard.

Jillian lives in Vancouver and is teaming up with Covenant House to raise awareness (and money) for homeless youth there because she says "it's heartbreaking to think about all the kids and families" who don't have roofs over their heads as winter approaches.

The event goes down Nov. 15th when the forecast calls for 36 degrees, 10% chance of rain -- and a 100% chance of freezing your ass off.

But if all goes well ... Jillian hopes to raise $11,000.

Actually, temps are forecast between 48F and 53F, and Canadians start to don shorts above 50F.
Jillian will probably feel too warm in her down coat
and add a sleeping bag. Canadians winter camp,
and in minus 30C (-22F.) Jillian's night will be
70 degrees warmer than that.

I thought the homeless man was Bruce Jenner at first glance. Am I just seeing the future for BJ? If he doesn't stay in line and listen to Kris he will be out on the streets. I feel bad for BJ.

The brutal cold of Canada, lmao. Maybe do so research about Vancouver nitwits, it is not a freezing hellhole, much warmer in the winter than much of the northeast US.

Vancouver? Brutal cold? Do your research TMZ, they have the mildest weather in the country. About the same as Seattle.

That's very nice, but freeze your butt off, give me a break! Tell her to get her ass to Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton, that's cold. Vancouver is summer weather. What a joke!

Truth    

HAHAHHAHAHAA, JUST GOES TO SHOW TMZ HASN'T BEEN ANYWHERE OUTSIDE THE THIRTY MILE ZONE. PATHETIC... VANCOUVER IS THE WARMEST EFFING PLACE IN ALL OF CANADA DURING WINTER MONTHS. MINUS 1-2 CELCIUS IS THE COLDEST IT GETS. NOVEMBER 15TH IS BASICALLY FALL WEATHER. MOST PEEPS STILL WEAR JEAN JACKETS OR VERY LIGHT FALL/WINTER COAT OR VEST. #TRUTH!!

Instead of making fun of her, how about introducing a proper health care system?

She's full of ****. Vancouver has a lot of homeless, but it is not the "brutal cold of Canada" it has a very mild winter.

I'd like to see this b!tch try this trick in Edmonton in December.
