'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.

All the Canadians whining about the 'cold' remark in that city. Too funny. Easy now, breeeeeeeathe They even put the forecast in the article. 36 degrees F is chilly. Especially compared to L.A.

36F is cold but it will stay 36F for maybe 30 mins then the temperature will climb up again. It's Vancouver!

Not sure how this will help charity. She is expecting to raise $11k - so she can't get rich people to fork over $11k unless she sleeps outside?

"In the brutal cold of Canada"? Has any idiot working at tmz ever been to Canada? In BC (where Vancouver is) it doesnt get brutally cold.

Go camp out in Penhold, Alberta, lady. It's -22 and snow everywhere.
.
I'll applaud her for her cause. I've had family helped by Covenant House, they don't just provide shelter to homeless youth they've got a large setup to get them back in school, jobs, living on their own. They do wonderful stuff.

Such a fame whore. She simply can't stand that her 24-yr-old snowboarder boyfriend is stealing the limelight & thought of it first. Will she bring her hair extensions and Top Shop designer sweater? Go away, Jillian. Your time in the sun is over.
