Have you been unlucky with love in the past? Unrequited love, a bad breakup, you name it. We’ve all been there. 

Well not to worry. Brian Root, assistant director of housing and residence life and newly-appointed director of rizz, says Pitt-Greensburg is taking matters into its own hands. The campus will be hosting its very own version of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.”

“I’ve been called Brian Rizz, Rizz Master General, The Assistant Director of Rizz and Rizz Life. The list goes on,” Root says. “I’m excited for this new role and for the recruitment and retention opportunities events like this will bring.” 

Applications for the spot of the bachelor, the bachelorette, as well as all contestants, are open now. 

“For the selection of the bachelor and bachelorette, we are going through a rigorous but inclusive selection process,” Root says. “We want to ensure Greensburg’s most eligible have an opportunity to find love.”

Unlike the show, this version of “The Bachelor” will not require contestants to make fools of themselves on national television. 

“Though you may just get funny looks from people on campus,” Root says. 

Rose ceremonies, which are elimination rounds, will be held on the eighth day of the week in front of Village Hall. Spectators are welcome to attend. If eliminated, contestants will be escorted behind the Village parking lot to be picked up, or to do a walk of shame back to their residence hall building. 

Submissions are due by April 31. Please make sure to include your basic information, including your height, favorite color, the last time you cried, how many Baja Blasts you’ve had in the past year, and what fried appetizer at Sheetz best represents you. 

“We are confident that this new program will help improve enrollment numbers,” Root says.
