Yes you read that right, now stop laughing. Apparently, former The Bachelor star Ben Flajnik is either desperate for money, or desperately looking to find love after splitting from Courtney Robertson, because he was recently snagged trying to sell dates with himself for $2500 a pop! Say what?!?
For only $2500.00 you can have a nice afternoon with Ben Flajnik, or at least you could have had, but it appears the former Bachelor star is sold out. No, we’re not kidding. Ben was recently selling dates on a site called Gilt City, but right now, he either decided that he has enough dates, or he realized how ridiculous selling dates is, because you can no longer purchase any.
According to the site, the $2500 would get you about 3 hours with Flajnik. The site boasts: “Now is your chance to spend a one-on-one afternoon with the handsome reality TV star. He’ll take you to one of his favorite places in the city for a leisurely lunch or dinner; then, he’ll pick the perfect spot to spend time chatting and talking about the winery he owns in Sonoma, his experience on the show, and what he does in his spare time. You might go with him to walk his dog on the beach; you might discover his favorite date spot; and you might even get the inside scoop on his new possible reality television show about the wine business.”
And before you ask, it was already investigated by Rumor Fix, and no, the money does not go to charity. Could the winemaker be desperate for cash? Or is he having a hard time getting a date? Whatever the case, we certainly will be chuckling about this one for a while.
