As if dating isn't fun enough, Baggage — On the Road, the newly re-vamped dating show from the Game Show Network is looking for "sexy Austin singles" for an upcoming show. 

The Scoot Inn will be hosting the GSN casting event on Friday, September 12 from 4 pm - 10 pm. According to the press release, Baggage is looking for folks who are "fun, sexy, single, dynamic, and opinionated," which should make finding contestants in Austin fairly easy. Filming will take place during the second weekend of the ACL Music Festival on October 8 through October 10. 

If the thought of having your dating life forever commemorated on television isn't enough to entice you to head to the Scoot on Friday, the bar is offering up a little liquid courage. Enjoy $3 well drinks and tallboys from 4 pm - 7 pm. 

So, yeah, maybe a dating show isn't how you want to meet your forever person, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't go the casting. After all, what other Austin bar is guaranteed to be full of singles on a Friday night? (Okay, a lot of them, but whatever.) Plus, if you really hit off, you'll have the ultimate meet-cute story. 

If you can't make it to the event, you can still participate in casting by sending your name, two photos, age, contact info and three secrets about yourself to or by calling 818-666-3606.
