Nearly 300 gorgeous young ladies (and even a couple dudes), packed Pacific Place for the annual Seattle Refined Bachelor/Bachelorette Casting Call.
While the odds of finding love on national television might not be great, it's a risk most here are willing to take.
Of course everyone on our team is pulling for our new BFF Melissa. Melissa agreed to go through our pre-casting call Bachelor Bootcamp earlier this month.
She got a new outfit, tips on hair, makeup and dating - and even some advice from former Bachelorette and married Seattle mom-to-be Desiree.
We caught up with Melissa at the casting call to make sure she didn't get cold feet. So, how did she do? Check it out above.
