Bachelor Casting Asks About Sex Tapes And Mental Illness
Potential contestants on the next season of The Bachelor will have to reveal their sexual history in order to make it to a rose ceremony.
Ladies looking for love face a confronting application form that asks them about their sexual history, jilted exes, drug use and even if they have the odd sex tape or two lurking in the past.
"How many sexual partners have you had? Male? Female?" the mandatory question in red asks applicants.
Another mandatory question is "Do you have any skeletons in your closet, e.g Jilted lovers, sex tapes, authorised photos?"
They're told to reveal ex's names and reasons they split up, if they had ever cheated and to spill the beans on past heartbreak.
Applicants are also asked if they've ever been diagnosed with a mental illness and if they have ever seen a psychiatrist or psychologist.
Drug use, tattoos, parent's relationships are all covered in the form along with the usual likes and dislikes questions expected of a dating show.
Hobbies, fears and outdoor activities receive a look in too.
The show's producer declined to comment on why certain questions were included and what bearing contestant's answers would have on their selection.
However, it seems the prospective bachelorettes aren't put off by the invasive line of questioning with a Network Ten spokesperson confirming they had received more applications than ever before.
