SEATTLE -- Lydia Cruz lined up to audition Saturday in Seattle for "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" two of the most popular shows on ABC.

"It makes me nervous but I feel like if you are open to love in any situation whether there is a camera there or not, it can happen," Cruz said.

Cruz was one of hundreds of women to respond to an open casting call by producers of shows at the Pan Pacific Hotel.

They said they are looking for people who possess the charm, style, class and charisma to become America's next leading lady or leading man on the show.

The people who showed up Saturday said they are ready for the emotional roller coaster of reality television.

On the last season of the show, bachelor Sean Lowe proposed to graphic designer and Seattle resident Catherine Giudici, the last woman standing.
