We're sure you've wondered what it might be like to swim with Ryan Lochte, or, better yet, go on a date with Ryan Lochte. What you may not have considered his how much those two once-in-a-lifetime experiences might cost. Well, news flash time: Hang time with the Olympic star could price out to as much as $20,000 (he won't even entertain the notion for less than $4,000). You see, Ry-guy is auctioning off a morning swim sesh (jeah!) and a lunch date (double jeah!), all to benefit CFDA & Vogue's Fashion for Sandy Relief Initiative, and the package is valued at around 20k, with bids (yes, it's up right now!) starting at four Grover Clevelands.
Ryan's is just one one-of-a-kind lot up for sale, joining offerings from the likes of Manolo Blahnik, Grace Coddington, Tom Ford, Jason Wu, Lady Gaga, Saint Laurent, Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, and Rodarte. Head over to CharityBuzz now to talk numbers, but make sure to read the small print —uh, this— "We expect all winning bidders and their guests to conduct themselves appropriately when attending an experience won at Charitybuzz. Polite manners and respect for the generous donor and adherence to any rules or parameters are a must. Winning bidder and guest(s) subject to security screening." Does that mean no flirting?
