For the first time, ABC's summer hit "Bachelor Pad" opens casting up to the general public for Season 3!

ABC's "Bachelor Pad" is upping the ante by opening casting to the general public for its 3rd season return on Monday, July 23.

People who have never appeared in a "Bachelor" franchise will join previous Bachelors and Bachelorettes for a chance at love.

If you are 21 years old or older and interested in participating, you must fill-out an online application, add a photo and submit a two-minute video.

The video should explain why you should be a member of "Bachelor Pad" and why you like the show. If the show likes your video, it will be posted on the website, where fans can vote for their favorites and leave comments.

The deadline for submissions is Sunday, April 30 at 2:59 a.m., ET.
