A producer shared more information on Instagram.

“Now casting a new show! If you know anyone who is 65+ and looking for love please pass this on! We would love to hear from them. #nowcasting,” the post read.

The casting flyer asks, “Are you entering your golden years and looking for romance?”

“The producers of The Bachelor are looking for active and outgoing single men and women age 65 and up for a new exciting dating show!” it reads. “If you are ready for a committed relationship apply today at SeniorDatingShow.CastingCrane.com.”

The application for the senior dating show asks for details like name, date of birth, hair colour, weight, if you’ve been married before and why are you no longer together, if you have any tattoos and if yes, what are they? It also asks where they are located on your body.

To be eligible to be selected and participate in the “Untitled Bachelor Senior Dating Show,” applicants must be legal residents of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec).
