The search is on for eligible men and women who are looking for true love! Our sister station, ABC is now casting for Season 18 of the Bachelor & Bachelorette AND they’re having the first open casting call for the season right here in Columbus!
As Yahoo! contributor, Kimberly Moses described in her firsthand account:
Every Monday night throughout the spring and summer months, millions of viewers tune in to ABC’s “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” to find out which lucky contestants will hear those five little words, “Will you accept this rose?” But before all the unbelievable fantasy dates and dream getaways to destinations afar, thousands of would-be contestants flocked to open casting calls with hopes of romance and love…or visions of dollar signs for some…in their minds.
I know firsthand, because once upon a time, I was one of those hopeful romantics who figured “What the heck? Let’s give this reality dating show a shot,” and I found myself at an open casting call.
You can find yourself at an open casting call too! Thursday May 30th from 4pm to 8pm at FM Food and Music All-American Bar & Grill (154 N. Hamilton Rd, Gahanna).
Cameron and I stopped by FM the other day where THREE Bachelor/ette alums from right here in Columbus (Alli Travis, Will Holman and Alexa McAllister) gathered to talk about their experience and promote the upcoming casting call.
Alli Travis was on Season 15 of the Bachelor with Brad Womack and on Season 2 of Bachelor Pad.
Will Holman was on Season 7 of the Bachelorette with Ashley Herbert and also on Season 2 of Bachelor Pad. (Sidenote: Doesn’t he look JUST like a young Josh Lucas?)
Alexa was on Season 14 of the Bachelor in 2010 with Jake Pavelka.
We had such a good time with them!
These three are proof that it’s definitely possible for you to attend the casting call and then be on the show! And who knows? YOU can be the first from Columbus to accept the final rose! How cool would that be?
Mark your calendars, dress to impress and come show the producers why YOU should be the next star on Bachelor or Bachelorette!
Cameron and I will be at the auditions and we can`t wait to meet you in person! Until then, tweet us at @CWStarColumbus and let us know if you or someone you know is auditioning for the show!
