Omarosa is the “well-known bachelorette” who will star in Donald Trump’s Ultimate Merger

The “well-known bachelorette” starring in Donald Trump’s new reality series is Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, who will apparently take time out of her seminary studies to be the bachelorette on a dating show.

That was revealed in a casting notice posted on Craigstlist more than two weeks ago, which not only gave away her identity but said the show was called Omarosa’s Ultimate Merger. It said, “We are currently conducting a nationwide search for successful, eligible bachelors who think they have what it takes to win the heart of TV personality Omarosa and gain the approval of Donald Trump!”

A second casting notice kept her identity secret and changed the show’s name–perhaps because they couldn’t find anyone willing to date Omarosa on TV, or just realized that using her name might not be the best marketing strategy?
