Oh dear god. This is so icky.
Going once, going twice, SOLD … is what some lucky bidder will hear if they win a date with Octomom … because the mother of 14 has officially put herself up for auction to earn some cold, hard cash.
Octo — in a last ditch effort to earn more money before she gets kicked out of her La Habra home — has created an online dating profile for a site called What’sYourPrice.com … a website where users can PAY other users to go out with them.
In her profile, Octo says she has 14 kids, loves to work out and loves to laugh … and she’s starting the bidding at a cool $500.
This is the latest in a slew of ploys to earn more green off her Octo fame. If you recall she also signed up for a website where she can beg her fans for money … but so far she’s only raked in a mere $2,509.
… which is $2,509 too much.
I’m browsing around that site right now, and it’s … it’s something special. You can classify yourself as either “generous” or “attractive,” and then yeah, you can just buy a date with someone. And I’m not against online dating at all – it’s how I met my fiancé, so, you know, it works, but this just seems like such a sad idea for a business. How do you sit through a date knowing that the only reason that the other person is with you is because you paid them to be?
