CONTESTANTS FROM THE BACHELOR AND THE BACHELORETTE
TAKE CLOTHES OFF THEIR BACKS FOR CHARITY!Trista Sutter (The Bachelorette) and Molly Mesnick (The Bachelor) are leading the pack of over 25 past contestants from the infamous shows to donate items worn during rose ceremonies, first dates and reunions. They have teamed up with luxury consignment service, eDrop-Off, to auction off the items beginning August 5th and ending on August 12th with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the Red Cross. They will also help host a “finale” event with eDrop-Off founder, Corri McFadden on August 11th in Chicago. Trista tell us “For years and years, I’ve walked past clothing in my closet that I knew I would never wear again…after all, I wore it on a show that I got my heart broken on! Right after tornadoes devastated my home state of Missouri, I felt like I had to do something and thought of those clothes (and a few others that had sentimental value, but I hoped could raise a penny or two) and putting together an auction. After reaching out to all the Bachelor/Bachelorette folks I had contact information for, Molly Mesnick had a fabulous connection at shopedropoff and she got the ball rolling for an auction that was even bigger than I had ever hoped. I cannot be any more proud of those who are donating, those who are bidding, and the fact that 100% of the proceeds are going to the American Red Cross. I know that money will do more good than having our clothes gain more and more dust in our closets!!”
The various items include Trista Sutter’s rose ceremony dress (with Ryan), Molly Mesnick’s first rose ceremony dress (meeting Jason), Emily Maynard’s ceremony dress, Sarah Brice’s last rose ceremony dress (proposal to Charlie) and Ed Swiderski infamous green shorts. Other participants include Ryan Sutter, Michelle Money, Nikki Kaapke, Graham Bunn, Jeremy Anderson, Jenn Waterman (Schefft), Shannon Oliver Robinson, Jason Mesnick, Peyton Wright, Chris Lamdton and Shawntel Newton, among others.
