What a (charitable) success!
Fans of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette raised close to $60,000 for the Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation during a recent auction at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., and the reality show contestants were out in full force.
Recently single Kiptyn Locke and Roberto Martinez – who auctioned themselves off for a rugged day date, that included horseback riding, a surfing lesson and a fireside hangout on the beach – hung out together for much of the night and got a ton of attention from female attendees. But neither guy was looking for romance. They truly were there for the charity.
Meanwhile, Sarah Herron and Jef Holm became fast friends at the event, and seemed to have a fun, great rapport together. And Bachelor Pad winner Michael Stagliano was introducing all his friends (and former) castmates to his fiancée.
As for the auction items, a paintball excursion with Michelle Money, Courtney Robertson and Lindsay Yenter went for $3800; a date with David Krumholz went for $1,000; and a surfing lesson with actor Andrew Keegan went for $700.
