Bidding to be with Celebrities

from the bad-ideas dept

I had heard a little bit about UltimateBid.com, but here’s an article that looks a little deeper at what they are offering. Basically, it’s an auction site that will sell time with celebrities. The more I think about this, the worse it sounds to me. I can’t believe people actually would spend so much money just to spend time with someone famous.

Re: Wuss!

Heh heh. Okay, you got me there. I’ll admit the business model is probably just dandy. I think it just makes me a little sick that (1) people are so infatuated with famous people that they want to pay such ridiculous sums to be with them and (2) that famous people are willing to “sell” themselves in this way. I completely see why it might be a huge success, I’m just morally opposed to it all. 🙂
