The EliteHey Hollywood Crush Readers!

I'm Kiera Cass, author of "The Selection," "The Prince" novella, and "The Elite" (out today!). "The Selection" series revolves around a fictitious dating game, and lots of people ask if I ever watched "The Bachelor" to get inspired for my books. The truth is, I never watched an episode until after I wrote "The Selection," but since then I’ve learned a lot about televised dating relationships and all the drama that surrounds them.

Personally, I think it’s easier to find a guy the old-fashioned, off-screen way. But... that’s way less entertaining! So, if you decide to participate in one of these ventures, you’ve got to remember that the producers have it down to a science as to what mix of girls make for an interesting show and who would stand a chance at winning a happily ever after. So, you’ve got to quickly establish yourself as one of the following it you want a chance at snagging your ideal man!
