When watching “The Bachelorette” Monday night on ABC, did you stop and think: How did Desiree send Zak W. home? I could totally see myself happily ever after with him. And we could paint and write songs and get spray tans together.
If you’ve fallen for Zak, or for any of Desiree’s men this season, here’s your chance at sloppy seconds-love, or at least, your shot at reality TV fame. ABC is holding an open casting call for season 18 of “The Bachelor.” And, based on ABC’s pattern, the new bachelor will be a fan favorite that Des sends home.
The San Diego open casting call for “The Bachelor” is taking place Friday, July 26 at Paradise Point Resort & Spa on Mission Bay. According to the press release, ABC is looking for: “eligible women who are ready to find true love … who feel they possess the charm, style, class and charisma to become America’s next leading lady.” The release did not specify age limitations.
