Do it. Do it. Do it.

If you can handle ditching your cell phone and all contact to the real world for weeks on end, not to mention kissing the same guy who's swapping saliva with 20+ other women, then you should head to Mall of America on June 30 and audition to be on "The Bachelor." 

That's right, ABC's hit show is holding casting calls at Mall of America from 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, June 30.

Prior Lake native Becca Kufrin did it and look at her now, she's "The Bachelorette" and has narrowed her potential husband to 11 guys, which she'll trim by a couple more next Monday night in Las Vegas. 

That said, making it onto the show should come with a Surgeon General's warning like packs of cigarettes It would go something like this. 

Being on The Bachelor may result in getting your heart splattered all over the floor by that lying snake Arie Luyendyk Jr. The show may also result in extreme embarrassment, drunken behavior, and falling from the top bunk and smashing your face on the floor. Contestants are also subject to diseases from other participants who share the bachelor's lips on a daily basis.

Anyway, the casting call will be held June 30 from 1-5 p.m. inside the atrium of Mall of America. 

What can you expect if you go?

A reporter from the Arizona Republic went to a casting call last weekend, saying she answered a number of questions about her accomplishments, past relationships, things she's looking for in a partner, what her favorite drinks are and many more. 

Later on she was in a room alone with a camera and asked to talk about her family, hometown, and dating history, which she says took about five minutes.

You only qualify for the show if you're at least 21 years old, single, and have no criminal history.
