Fancy a date with Michael Turnbull? It’ll cost you $13,000.

Start saving up, ladies.

Your dream of sharing pasta and a movie with Bachelorette runner-up, Michael Turnbull, might set you back a lil’ bit. $13,000, to be precise.

It’s only been a couple of months since the 34-year-old’s heart was trampled upon by Sam Frost, but it seems he’s well and truly back into the dating game (provided you pay for it, of course).

Turnbull auctioned a date with himself on eBay last week, promising to put all funds towards helping Joey Lynch – a 23-year-old – fight Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, the cancer that has plagued him for eight years.

The soccer player/real estate agent publicised the event on his Facebook page, telling his fans and friends: “To bid on dinner with me in Sydney check out eBay — auction closes at 7:30pm tonight. (Sydney time). Let’s pay it forward and help save a young man that needs us now more than ever.”


The highest bidder (whose identity is yet to be revealed) forked out no less than $13,000 to be on Michael’s tattooed arm for the night, making for what is surely one of the most expensive dinner dates of all time.

It’s a (very, very) steep price to pay, but it’s touching to know that $13,000 is going to such a good cause.

We look forward to finding out who Michael’s mysterious (and clearly loaded) hot date is.
