So have you ever made fun of a TV show to no end? Thought the people were out of their minds, the acting was bad, the “reality” was as fake as could be? Then your room mate is watching it and you find yourself hooked? Or maybe you hear a conversation about the crazy family and their unheard of life style and you just HAVE to check it out?
Like so guilty. I am talking Kardashians, Duggers, Sister Wives, Bachelor/Bachelorette… I could probably go on.
Well lucky for me I found a few friends in KC that were hooked on the Bachelor too. And in true fashion we invited a few more friends over and got them hooked as well. Most Monday nights for the last two seasons, we have been holding watch parties at our house. I cook, everyone brings something to pitch in and we have a night of yummy food, wine, and friends. Admittedly the show has been rather blah, but the company is fantastic and we have still been using the show as a good reason to get together (and make sure we don’t miss out on any juicy reality TV drama).
On commercial breaks the voice of the host, Chris Harrison” always reminds the viewers “If you, or someone you know, would like to find love on the next season of the Bachelor or Bachelorette apply on line or visit a casting call near you!”. A few weeks back they listed Kansas City as a casting call location. We HAD to go!
Ironically, of the four of us that wanted to go, two were already married. Was being single a condition of being on the show? Whoops? Talk about “right reasons”. Everyone needs a good wing girl, so Hannah and I went as moral support.
What an experience! So many good-looking women (and some men) of a wide variety of ages were there looking for love (or fame). So many high heels, stylish dresses, and loads of make up and hairspray.
The contestants received a 6 page packet of information and questions to fill out.
Got in line to take a few mug shot photos, and then stood in a lonnngg line for an interview.
Along the line they had booths set up by local boutiques displaying jewelry and fashion that would complete your look if you were one of the lucky 25 selected.
While our eligible friends were interviewing, us married chicas took some selfies with the beautiful sunset as a back drop. The interviews were quick. Five minuets of basic questions and answers with a casting director and a camera.
Yup that’s me in the blue dress and white jacket
Spotted. And now I am famous on Channel 9 website. I got my 15 seconds of fame anyhow.
Oh and PS if my two single friends don’t get a call back in the next two weeks, I may need to post a dating profile. 🙂 Hot young singles in KC looking for love? I know a study smart dashing man with a love for corgi puppies, and a beautiful blonde woman with a sassy style and a pretty smile.
