She had to do that for the last Bachelor, but last time it was the second step (after being nominated with photographs), this time it was the first step.

    I look forward to seeing an air date for this show so I can put it in my planner (to go along with Lost's air date, of course).
    Thank you Charity. That still fits in with the filming dates that Cafegirl and I are thinking for Andy's show.

    Is it unusual for them to still be casting the week before filming begins? That seems a bit close. Or are they still looking for that "perfect" girl and will make the final draws from already interviewed applicants? Does anyone know if some of the women have been notified already?

    Oh, Boy, is anyone besides me ready for some new BAchelor Hawaii news??? I've hi-lighted the filming info... sounds like at least preliminary filming is taking place this week, so Charity, I'm wondering did your friend say she was applying for Bachelor Hawaii? Maybe the girls come next week.
    The other great source it's sounds like for us on articles is this Honolulu paper. So far, they've had the most info on this show, maybe they will let us know about filming, etc during the next month.

    Lt. Andy Baldwin, ABC's "The Bachelor"

    By Catherine E. Toth
    Advertiser Staff Writer

    'BACHELOR' FACTS

    Network: ABC

    Seasons: 10

    So what does it take to be America's most desired bachelor?

    Good looks?

    An impressive resume?

    Rock-hard abs?

    Try all of the above, according to the casting director for ABC's "The Bachelor," which will feature Lt. Andy Baldwin, a Hawai'i-based Navy medical officer, in its upcoming season, starting this spring.

    The reality show will be in production on O'ahu this week, with location scouts out around the island today and filming planned around Pearl Harbor later in the week, according to Baldwin.

    "We think about who the ideal guy would be, what kind of job he'd have, what he'd look like," said Robyn Kass, who has worked in casting for other reality-based shows, including "Survivor" and "Big Brother." "We spend a lot of time finding someone who's great on paper but also great for the show."

    The casting crew found the 29-year-old triathlete and medical doctor while inquiring about competitive athletes.

    When Baldwin got the call on his cell from producers of "The Bachelor," he thought it was a joke.

    "My first reaction was, 'Are you kidding?' " Baldwin said. "After thinking about it — and realizing that a very successful television network was going to scan the world for 25 potential life mates for me and give me the opportunity to meet them in some fun surroundings — I thought, 'Why not?' "

    Baldwin, who's never been married, figured participating in the show would help him find the love of his life.

    "I'm ready to fall in love with the woman of my dreams and eventually start a big family," he said. "I may be old-fashioned, but I believe in true love, and I know she's out there. And I know I'm going to find her."

    There are several ways the casting crew finds its bachelors, Kass said.

    They scour newspapers and magazines, get referrals from sources, and search through e-mails and voice mail messages to find that perfect — and single — guy.

    "Every possible avenue you can think of," Kass said, "we use."

    The crew was immediately taken by Baldwin's looks, smarts and personality.

    "I dare any woman to find a fault in this guy," Kass said. "He's really a good guy. He's got it all — education, great career, amazing looks. He's hilarious, he's got a great personality, he's athletic, he volunteers ... He's an all-around guy."

    The network announced Baldwin as the next bachelor during the season finale in November. That episode reached 9.9 million viewers.

    The following morning, Kass had close to 5,000 e-mails and 2,500 phone messages from women eager to met him.

    "It was crazy," Kass said, laughing.

    But not surprising, she said, considering what Baldwin has to offer.

    At 29, he's a medical officer for a special-operations dive unit stationed at Pearl Harbor.

    Originally from Lancaster, Pa., Baldwin was valedictorian and an All-American swimmer in high school.

    He attended Duke University on a full ROTC scholarship, graduating with honors in 1999 with a bachelor's degree in biology with a concentration in genetics.

    Baldwin enrolled in the University of California-San Francisco School of Medicine. He later was a surgical intern at the Naval Hospital in San Diego.

    He began competing in triathlons in 2000.

    But Baldwin is more than just a hunky, athletic doctor.

    He's also an active volunteer in the community.

    He established a fund to raise money for pancreatic cancer research in memory of his uncle. And earlier this year, he served as group surgeon for a team of military personnel on a mission in Laos.

    Oh, yeah, and he's single.

    Sound too good to be true?

    "If somebody told me about him, I might say that," admitted Kass, who's single herself. "But I've spent a lot of time with him and he's really down to earth, funny and genuine. From reading everything about him, you might think this guy's not for real. But he really is."

    hey good sleuthing as usual Cafegirl! damn, my in-laws just flew to Honolulu today (hey, maybe they are there right now!). They stay for two or three days then go to Maui. Maybe I'll have my hubby have them keep an eye open (although I highly doubt they have ever watched a single episode of the Bachelor, let alone know what to look for!). They for sure are going to spend a day going to Pearl Harbor and touring the Missouri - my mother in law though, is hobbling on an ankle she broke on the ice last winter and I doubt she'll tour much on the Missouri - she'll probably be sitting outside under a tree reading a book. Good spot to look for cameras!

    damn, I wish I was there . . . . . .

    it's really perennialprincess, there just wasn't enough space to fit it all in!

    "In Production"

    From 15-years in TV, "in production" doesn't necessarily mean the bachelorettes have gone to Hawaii and the dating has begun.

    The TV crew will be shooting B-roll (scenics) and scouting for location sites for dates prior to any "drama" occuring.

    Some shows have a tight schedule. A friend is the Post-production Producer for another dating reality show, and she is on-site for filming the first few days, then goes into the editing suite, develops the story with input from the Sr. Producer who's in charge of filming. From shooting date to airing, it can be a month (or less) turn-around.

    Thank you for this information hotlanta babe! I was wondering if this might be the case since they were still casting for the show.

    Thanks for the in put! It really is nice to know the nuts and bolts of the way the show is put together. Please... keep us informed if your friend has any more insight.
