Charlotte women are invited to SUITE Charlotte at the EpiCentre on Thursday, June 26 to participate in a casting call for the 19th season of the ABC show The Bachelor.
“This will be the third year we have hosted The Bachelor Casting Call at SUITE and we have averaged around 125 ladies the past two years,” said Brett Carraway, operating partner for SUITE Charlotte. “We have been working hard to get the word to even more people this year.”
The casting call is free and open to any who would be eligible to appear on the ABC program. Registration will begin at 5 p.m. inside SUITE.
“When the ladies arrive, they are given a packet of paperwork to fill out with various questions and then have their picture taken before doing a filmed interview,” said Carraway. “Attendees do not need to bring anything but a smile and their story.”
ABC producers will be at SUITE conducting the interviews. Contestants who make it through to the next round will be contacted at a later point, and will go through another series of interviews to hopefully vie for the heart of the next bachelor.

ABC is currently airing the 10th season of The Bachelorette, which originally aired in 2003 as a spin-off of The Bachelor. Should the traditional model of the programs hold, the bachelor on the season this casting call is for will be one of the contestants of the current Bachelorette season, though this individual has not yet been announced.
ABC also recently announced another spin-off, Bachelor in Paradise. This program could be described as a mix between CBS’s Survivor and Bachelor Pad (2010-12 spin-off of The Bachelor) that, as described in an ABC press release, allows “contestants [to] live together in an isolated romantic paradise and, over the course of six episodes, we’ll follow these former bachelors and bachelorettes as they explore new romantic relationships.”
