So you want to be the next Bachelorette? So far ABC's bachelorettes have had better luck than the bachelors with at least once couple getting married and having children (Ryan and Trista Sutter). If you are ready for marriage and want a line up of handsome,interesting bachelors to choose from, and you aren't camera shy, then becoming the next Bachelorette may be just the ticket!
Get in good shape. Most people accepted on ABC's reality TV shows The Bachelor or The Bachelorette have been attractive and look good on camera. Hit the gym and firm up while avoid salt! Also be sure to go to a good salon to get your hair done!
Be happy and competent on your own and ready to find another great person to share your happiness with. You can't have a healthy successful relationship until you are a healthy happy person on your own. You should never look for a potential spouse out of lonely desperation, or to fill a lack of happiness. A potential mate for life should be sought only when you are happy with who you are and feel you have a lot of love to give and a lot to offer someone else.
Practice talking on camera. Being on the Bachelorette requires being able to speak well on camera and express yourself naturally. Have friends ask you questions while recording yourself, watch yourself and see where you can make changes to appear more natural on camera.
Create your video application/nomination introducing yourself and talking about why you would be a perfect candidate for the Bachelorette.
Get some good headshots taken. You can either pay for professional headshots, or you can post an ad on craigslist looking for TFCD (Time for CD) with a photographer who is building their portfolio.
Fill out the online application. You can find the application in the resources below.
Send you application, video and photos to:

Tips & Warnings
- You can have a friend or family member nominate you and apply for you. Have them talk about why you are such a great catch and person for the show.
- Another strategy would be to apply to date The Bachelor and make it to the final top few, hopefully becoming a fan favorite and being asked by ABC to be the next Bachelorette.
- Make sure you don't have a boyfriend or girlfriend going into the show.
