If you’re a single looking for love, NBC and Ellen DeGeneres want to set you up on an incredible first date. Ellen is bringing the UK’s smash hit First Dates to the U.S., and she’s looking for single men and women ages 18-65+ who are looking for love and would be open to setting set up on a fun first date.

You know that everything that Ellen does is light-hearted, fun and over-the-top and I imagine that the folks lucky enough to be selected will get to experience a once-in-a-lifetime date. And I’d trust Ellen waaaaay more than the matches my friends have been paired with by online dating sites —some of those fellas are highly suspect. but if Ellen is choosing, I bet they’d be highly entertaining.

This isn’t a competition and there are no eliminations; this show is about the fun and wonder of a first date. Where it goes from there is up to you.

Matchmaker, Matchmaker, make me a match with him!

So what do you think, would Ellen DeGeneres make a good matchmaker? What wacky first date would you love to have? What if she calls in a few favors and sets people up with celerities!?! What sexy single celeb would you like to be set up with? I know quite a few single ladies who wouldn’t mind washing cars with Zac Efron, or surfing with Scott Eastwood. Mmmm, both dates would be shirtless! I think I’m turning First Dates into something else; but a happily-married woman can dream, right??

If meeting a potential match and going on a fun and exciting date sounds like something you would do (or that your friends and family think you should do) apply here!!!

I spoke with one of the casting directors and they’re looking for lovely singles from all over the U.S., and will be contacting people to conduct further interviews via Skype.

Good luck, and happy dating!
