All My Single Ladies: 'Bachelor' Hosts Casting Call in Phoenix
Next Thursday the Valley will welcome (or at least, will host) casting producers from ABC's hit reality dating show, The Bachelor. They'll be looking for 25 women to wine, dine, and date their way into a single man's heart.
And if you watched the last two seasons of the Bachelor and the Bachelorette, then you already know the Valley's got a reputation to uphold.
In the current season of the Bachelorette, racecar-driving heartthrob Arie Luyendyk, Jr. brought the show to Scottsdale and Fountain Hills during a week of "hometown dates."

Besides being an indycar driver, Luyendky also had his real estate license in Arizona, though it expired in 2008.
The season prior Courtney Robertson, a Scottsdale resident and model, showed off the Farm at South Mountain to Bachelor Ben Flajnik -- she also won.
That's back-to-back hometown visits for Valley contestants. But, no pressure prospectives.
The casting call will be held at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa on Thursday, July 12 from 4 to 8 p.m.. Ladies can also apply online if unable to make the in-person audition.
In honor of the event, the Royal Palms will be offering a 15% off room rates from Tuesday, July 10 through Saturday, July 14. Check the Royal Palms website for more details.
