Ever wanted to find love as millions watch your every move on national TV?
Well, Saturday's your chance.
ABC's The Bachelor is hosting a casting call at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek for all you lonely ladies (and dudes?) looking for Mr. Right.
"You have to be single, that's a starter!" laughs Lacey Pemberton, the reality show's casting director. "We're looking for women and men. We're not 100 percent sure who we're using for the bachelor yet."
"You also have to be willing to take a leap of faith," she adds. "Aside from that, there really aren't any requirements."
Except for the fact that you have to be over the age of 21, of course.
As the only casting call in the state, thousands are expected to flood the casino's pavilion, so if you really wanna impress Pemberton, you gotta be charming and energetic as hell.
"Energy is always great. Show us your personality. We have three to four minute interviews. We need to know as much about you. That's important."
And in case you're wondering what kind of questions you'll be asked, basically your entire life story.
"The basics, like your name, age, where you live, what you do for a living, if you've been married, engaged, how many children you have."
"We'll also ask more personal questions like what you haven't found in a relationship that you're looking for, your hobbies, interests. It's all about them, so they know all the answers. They should be interested in telling us about them."
After that, the rest is up to fate ... And in the hands of Pemberton and The Bachelor crew.
"We wanna listen to you tell your story. If you're very open and feel like this is the time of your life, like you're ready to take the plunge and do something like this, then why not?"
If you're just in it for the 15 minutes of fame, you're better off spending your Saturday watching reruns of Juan Pablo's epic fails on the last season of The Bachelor.
"No one is paid, we pay for everything on the show, of course, but that's why it's so important to do the show because you want to meet someone."
The dates may be set up and televised for all to see, but just like it is in the real world, who knows what'll happen?
"No one knows what goes on except for the people involved. We've had a number of people get married from the show. It's real life. Is it gonna happen every season? It doesn't happen with every couple in real life."
"What makes the show interesting season after season is the group of people. You never know what story they'll be bringing. As much as we all like to say they're gonna like this person, you never know what the chemistry will be like."
So if you're legal, single, and ready to mingle, maybe love is just a few red roses and televised dates away.
"It's the ultimate blind date, even though you know who the guy is. But it's a first for everybody. You need to feel comfortable with yourself and be sincere."
Season 19 of The Bachelor airs January 2015.
