‘The Bachelor' Is Hosting Auditions in Pompano Beach, But You Might Want to Check Out The Entry Rules First
If you’ve ever imagined competing for love on “The Bachelor,” here’s your chance.
The hit ABC reality show is hosting auditions for its 20th season at the Festival Flea Market Mall in Pompano Beach from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 27.
Now, before you drag your BFF to the auditions against her will, know that there's a fairly long list of eligibility requirements. (For starters, you need to be 21 to apply.) We took the liberty of highlighting a few of our favorites. You know, to be helpful and stuff.
1. No political candidates allowed. (Can we just say, thank goodness for that.)
"Applicants may not presently be a candidate for any type of political office ("Candidate") and may not become a Candidate from the time the application is submitted until one (1) year after first broadcast of the last episode of the Program in which they appear."
2. You must be totally cool with jumping out of a plane.
“All applicants understand and acknowledge that participation in the [The Bachelor/Bachelorette], including, without limitation, the activities and events arranged by the Program coordinator, may expose applicant and other participants to the risk of death, serious injury, illness or disease and/or property damage. Applicants must be willing and able to participate in physical activities such as: skydiving, snow skiing, ice skating, parasailing, water skiing, rollerblading, and the like.”
3. Know that Big Brother is watching—always.
“Each applicant acknowledges, understands and agrees that he or she, if chosen as a bachelor or bachelorette on the Program, may be audio and/or video taped twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week while participating in the Program by means of open and hidden cameras, whether or not he or she is then aware that he or she is being videotaped or recorded (collectively, "Recordings") and that such Recordings may be disseminated on television and/or all media now known or hereafter devised, in any and all manner throughout the Universe in perpetuity.”
4. Don’t be a reality show hog.
“If any applicant is currently being considered as a contestant and/or participant in a primetime television reality/game show, he/she must withdraw his/her application from such competing show upon Producer's request.”
5. Oh, yeah. You need to be single. And in case you need help determining what that means:
“To qualify as "single" the applicant must not currently be involved in a committed intimate relationship, which includes: any marital relationship (whether or not the parties are separated or currently in the process of divorcing or annulling such marriage); any co-habitation relationship involving physical intimacy; or a monogamous dating relationship more than two (2) months in duration.”
So, up for the challenge? Needless to say, it’d probably be a pretty memorable experience.
