Tennis star Eugenie Bouchard said, “quarantine would be “a lot more fun with a boyfriend,” and that lead to comedian and fan Bob Menery paid $4,000 in a charity auction to go on a virtual date with Bouchard.
The date was apparently successful as Bouchard is eyeing a second date with Menery.
Menery presented Bouchard with flowers from his studio on an evening he had promised would be “the best first date you have ever been on,” interspersing clips of the meeting with sections of the song “It Must Be Love” by Madness.
Despite being mocked by fans, Menery seemed to have a successful date with Bouchard, who said that she would “subscribe to find out” how his recording of their chat had turned out.
“I agreed to a live date so when things are possible, and somehow our schedules overlap, we will go on a second date…a first real date. We’ll see where that goes.”
The $4,000 may end up being the best money Menerey’s ever spent.
