Bachelor Rose Ceremony Prize Bag at eBay: Ends Sunday June 1st

(UPDATE: Didn't meet reserve. Maybe this is just a keeper after all:) All right guys & gals, I'm going to be sitting around in my "Your Boyfriend Wants Me" T-shirt, Wearing my Peroni Italy Glasses, Framing my expired tea coupons, and Spraying everyone around me with my handy Spray Tanner While Typing Up Tonight's Snarky Blog. Woohoo!)

Fans of ABC's The Bachelor or The Bachelorette are probably familiar with the Rose Ceremony Game that viewers can play each week in order to win weekly prizes and a grand prize. This bag is one of the weekly prizes that I won during The Bachelor: Rome featuring Prince Lorenzo Borghese. Each of the 25 bachelorettes that vied for his hand in marriage received one of these bags with lots of things to pamper and pretty themselves up with ;) This season took place fall of 2006.

I was notified by ABC around Feb. '07 that I had won the bag and received it shortly thereafter. I opened it up, took the photos seen here in this listing and then packed it all back up and it has not been opened since. Nothing has been used. I listed it once before but reserve was not met. This time around, let's hope a fan can enjoy it!

The gift bag contains a lot of pampering type products--bath and body, makeup and the like. The learn Italian kit was funny as I recalled Lorenzo didn't even speak much Italian! The clothes were silly--the shirt that said "Your Boyfriend Wants Me" was too funny! The self tanning kit with the airbrush machine (which looks like a hair dryer) was too hilarious too, I can just see myself doing this...or not;)

I sure wanted to try Gold Peak tea, but the coupons were expired!

And the 2 sharpie pens were funny--they didn't seem to fit the overall theme, but?! Maybe the bachelorettes sat around marking up photos and head shots of the girls they couldn't stand on off-date days!

The box included a letter from ABC and their marketing dept. about the prize and its value at $1340.28 !! My reserve on this auction is a mere 250.00.
