ROYAL OAK — Do you have what it takes to win a rose?

If the answer is yes and you are single and 21 or older, then head downtown to Fifth Avenue Sports & Entertainment, 215 W. Fifth St., from 5-9 p.m. July 9 and participate in a casting call for ABC’s reality TV show, “The Bachelor.”

The television series entering its 20th season is looking for men and women for “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” series.

Representatives from ABC and WXYZ-TV Channel 7 will be at Fifth Avenue looking for contestants who really let their personalities shine through.

Casting for the show is managed through Warner Bros., and the topics that agents will ultimately be interested in hearing about include where potential contestants live, work and play; children and pets; dating history, including any funny date stories; special interests or hobbies; family relationships; and if you were the host of a home date, what would it be like?

Attendees should also be prepared to talk about their dream mates and dates and why they would want to experience both on national TV.

As far as advice for making the show: the more memorable, the better. Casting agents are looking for memorable in a positive way, not scary or negative.

All contestants must have a valid passport and never have been convicted of a felony. Also, potential contestants should be prepared to talk about whether they’ve ever had a restraining order issued against them or someone else.

Fifth Avenue Sports & Entertainment General Manager Jon Olko said they are ready for the excitement.

“We have not had an event such as this before, although we do host all kinds and types of events with our spacious and flexible floor plan,” he said.

Olko said he is expecting about 300-600 people, but he really can’t be sure.

Those who are interested in being on the show, but who can’t attend the casting call can send an audition tape to thebachelor.warnerbros.com/casting.
