If getting locked in a mansion with a bunch of strangers for months on end with no connection to the outside world while cameras follow your every move sounds like a great time, then The Bachelor or The Bachelorette could be for you.

Turns out the steamy ABC dating show, where contestants supposedly find true love on national TV, is holding an open casting call for its 24th season this summer in Cleveland.

The event is being held at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Center (1360 West Mall Drive) on Saturday, July 27, and requires that potential contestants show up by 1 p.m. Save time and apply for the show online first.

But what are the producers looking for in a potential contestant?

First, a person cannot be running for political office of any kind and must be at least 21 (which is good as all contestants tend to be constantly supplied with booze for maximum drama). Contestants must also be single and an American citizen.

If all of that sounds like you, then you know what to do — work on chiseling your abs and losing a couple IQ percentage points. You're going to be great.
