I got the following note via LinkedIn. Cara won’t let me go on televised dream dates with 25 women, but if you’ve ever wished that was in you in that hot tub scene, email me and I’ll pass your name on:
ABC Television’s hit reality television show, The Bachelor, is searching for its
next star. After viewing your profile on LinkedIn, the casting producer has
selected you as a potential candidate.
ABC is using LinkedIn to find its
next Bachelor because this time around, they’re looking for an accomplished
professional. LinkedIn is about your professional life instead of your personal
life, so we don’t know if your marital or relationship status qualifies you for
the show. However, your professional profile fits the bill.
think you’d make a great “Bachelor,” please let me know by reply and I will contact you regarding next steps.
Pretty cool, eh? "The Bachelor" using business networks to find their next studmuffin? (I’d have been even more flattered if they found me on a network where my photo was posted.) Gotta love Web 2.0 (argh, must stop using that term). Seriously though, send a line if you or someone you know would be a good fit. The perks of reading this blog keep piling up.
