Sure it's a awfully terrible reality dating show, but hey it's more fun than entertaining than sitting on your couch swiping left and right.

The Bachelor and The Bachelorette seem to have taken over the TV. Ok, maybe that's because I never change the channel in my apartment, but reality dating shows are pretty much the norm these days.

And The Bachelor was the original.

If you've spent years watching the show or swiping left and right on your dating apps, maybe this is the year you actually send your stuff in to the show.

And here's the best part, you're probably not too old.

While I was talking about this with Sweet Lenny the other day, we investigated the age rules of the dating shows and it turns out there is only a rule that you must be 21 or older.

So even if you're 31... like someone I know (or am), you can still be a part of the dating show that changed the face of reality TV.

Auditions are going on from July 12 until July 29 across the country, with the closest auditions being in Ohio, but you're also welcome to apply for the show on The Bachelor website.

Catch Midday Michelle on 97 ZOK from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
