Trista, Ryan, Andrew Firestone attend White House Correspondents Dinner.
ABC, whose entertainment chairman Lloyd Braun recently admitted the network was “inconsistent with our strategy” and said he “would give us a slap on the face for doing all this reality stuff,” invited The Bachelor 3‘s Andrew Firestone and The Bachelorette‘s Trista Rehn and her beau Ryan Sutter to the White House Correspondents Dinner. To be fair, many media organizations invite celebrities to sit at their tables, although Trista proved to be not too aware of her surroundings. While Andrew Firestone had his picture taken with Colin Powell, Trista admitted she didn’t know who the White House chief of staff was, and remarked to the New York Times that it was “strange to me that I have a better table than Bo Derek.”
