Donald Trump is apparently going to star in a new dating reality series called The Ultimate Merger, which is now casting men who are willing to live in the Trump hotel in Las Vegas and let Trump decide who’s best for an allegedly well-known woman.

A casting notice on Cragislist says that “Trump will take on the role of matchmaker to help a well known bachelorette achieve the ‘ultimate merger’ – a successful relationship.” The show will be produced by Donald Trump Productions and Juma Entertainment, and the notice says Trump “will help select a group of eligible bachelors to stay at Trump International Hotel and Tower in Las Vegas and prove they have what it takes to win her heart.”

Men have to be over 21 and a legal US residents who are “financially secure” and “outgoing with big personalities,” and “all races and ethnicities” are welcome.

On Tuesday, casting producers are holding an “audition party” in Chicago for “eligible bachelors” and “men who are at the top of their game, such as CEO’s, entrepreneurs, Doc, Atty, PhD’s etc.”
