ABC’s long-running “The Bachelor” has had its¬†share of singles looking for love from the Seattle area.

Jason Mesnick from Kirkland finished as the runner up on Season 4 of “The Bachelorette” in 2008, then appeared in Season 13 of “The Bachelor.” Chris Siegfried found his current wife, Desiree Hartsock, on Season 9 of “The Bachelorette” in 2013. They both live in Seattle. Seattle’s Catherine Giudici was a contestant on the 17th season of “The Bachelor” in 2013, and married Bachelor Sean Lowe, while Buffalo, N.Y. transplant and Seattle resident Jason Tartick was a fan favorite on Season 14 of “The Bachelorette” in 2018.

Now the show is back in the Seattle area looking for more contestants in an open casting call that will take place from 3-7 p.m. on Thursday, June 27. The casting call, hosted by The Bellevue Collection, will be on the second level of Lincoln Square North, near Lucky Strike Lanes, at 700 Bellevue Way, Bellevue.

Bellevue is one of 11 cities nationwide that will host open casting calls for Season 24 of “The Bachelor.”

What happens at an open casting call? You’ll likely fill out an extensive questionnaire and get your picture taken, then wait your turn to get interviewed by show casting staffers. In the questionnaire, you’ll be asked questions such as “why would you want to find your spouse on our TV show?” or “what have you not found but would like to have in a relationship?”

Expect a lot of sitting around and waiting. And expect a ton of competition.

All applicants must be at least 21 years old. For more information:
