Bristowe, Booth ready to be a normal couple (copy)

Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth appear on the season finale of 2015's “The Bachelorette.”

Popular ABC reality matchmaking show "The Bachelorette" is looking for new cast members in Charleston.

Although the new season will not be set in the Holy City, talent scout Alyx Anne Wilson has her eye on the Lowcountry for some potential recruits.

"I'm looking in Charleston specifically just because (the show) hasn’t had a recruiter in this area," Wilson says. "I pitched the idea since I think we have some great guys." 

Wilson passes along the contact information of notables in her search to the casting team and lets them handle things from there.

According to her Monday morning post on the "I Live in Wagener Terrace" Facebook page, there is some criteria for men seeking to apply. 

"Looking for eligible bachelors..." she wrote. "Please tag or message me to nominate anyone you think may be a good fit! Spread the word! I'll be meeting and interviewing with guys."

There have been 14 seasons of "The Bachelorette" and 22 seasons of its counterpart "The Bachelor." The last season of "The Bachelorette" featured Becca Kufrin, who also appeared on the last season of "The Bachelor." She was chosen by bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. in "The Bachelor," accepted his proposal at the end of the season, then was dumped for runner-up Lauren Burnham before the season finished airing. In "The Bachelorette," she chose Garrett Yrigoyen as her match.

Some lasting love connections have been made on the show that first aired in 2003. First-ever bachelorette Trista Rehn is still married to her choice Ryan Sutter. Season 7 "The Bachelorette" star Ashley Hebert is also still with her match J.P. Rosenbaum, while Season 11 lovers Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth are still engaged after three years. 

The bachelorette for the upcoming season has not yet been announced. 

Charleston bachelors who are interested in applying can contact Wilson via her email at wilson.alyx@gmail.com. Maybe a few lucky locals will earn a rose.
