“The Bachelor” Is Calling All Single Ladies of the Carolinas

Charlotte native Emily Maynard won the heart of Brad Womack on ABC’s hit reality show “The Bachelor” earlier this year on WSOC-TV Channel 9.

Now the reality juggernaut is coming to the Queen City to see if any other southern belles have what it takes to fight for the final rose. Casting producers from “The Bachelor” will be on hand at AT&T Alive After Five on Thursday, June 16, searching for prospective bachelorettes to appear on the next season of “The Bachelor.” Registration begins at 4:30 p.m. and on-camera interviews will run through 10 p.m. at SUITE, located adjacent to the rooftop Pavilion at EpiCentre, 210 E Trade Street in the heart of uptown Charlotte.

“The Bachelor” introduces one lucky gentleman to 25 lovely ladies who are all vying for his affection. The bachelor gets to send time with each woman he meets, sometimes as a group and sometimes one-on-one. Each episode culminates with a rose ceremony where each woman who receives a rose can stay to date another day. Those who come up empty-handed must head home alone. Since debuting in 2002 “The Bachelor” has produced two spin-offs, “The Bachelorette” and “Bachelor Pad.” Additional information about “The Bachelor” is available at ABC.com. The current season of “The Bachelorette” airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. on WSOC-TV Channel 9.
