ABC-TV's reality series "The Bachelor" - um, let's make that "unscripted" television show - will have a casting call for single women Saturday, July 12 at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek.

The open audition will take place from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Pavilion. Applicants must be at least 21 years old.

Here is an email Q&A with casting rep Sandy Mehlman:

3. Any particular hints on what producers are looking for?

"First and foremost, they need to be single, and willing to take a leap of faith."
