FORT LAUDERDALE, April 30. YOU read the headline right. The Bachelor, ABC's popular matchmaking show that has captivated millions of viewers in its three installments, is looking to cast a water polo player for show No. 4.
An earlier show featured a swimmer. So casting a water polo player makes perfect TV sense. Could you, or someone you know, fit the bill?
According to the show's promoters: "The Bachelor IV will give one of America's most eligible single men a one-of-a-kind opportunity to find his true love and perhaps his bride to be. Over the course of six one-hour episodes, one terrific, single man will take a romantic journey through the world of modern courtship. The series will feature his heartfelt quest for a meaningful relationship with the woman of his dreams.
"Entertaining in the most stylish of locales, the bachelor will have the world as his playground. Each episode will feature jetting off to chic hot spots, dining in a style reserved for the elite, living in a luxurious mansion, and embracing exotic, high-action adventures as he discovers which woman has the key to his heart."
If this sounds like the perfect situation for you or a water polo stud that you know, here is what the show's promoters say you should know:
"The candidate should be the ultimate 'catch'; between 23-30 years of age, never married, athletic, handsome, charming, educated, adventurous, interesting, funny and looking for his life's partner.
