Trishelle is literally selling herself.

Trishelle is literally selling herself.
So this takes the meaning of “reality TV whore” to a whole new level. The Real World Las Vegas and Surreal Life 2 star Trishelle Cantanella has appeared in Playboy. But now, she’s selling herself on eBay. However, the auction winner doesn’t get to keep Trishelle. Instead, the auction, coordinated by her agent Passport Models (which also represents Real Worlders Teck Money and Mike “The Miz”), provides a trip to LA and only “the chance to hang out with Trishelle.” You get “travel, accommodations, meal at Dolce, 1 DAY ONLY meet and greet with celebrity, autographs, and security.” What is Trishelle’s price? Not $1,150, as the reserve has yet to be met (as of 9:30 a.m. ET Thursday). Only three people have bid so far. The best part, however, comes are part of the standard eBay listing information; it says the seller “Will arrange for local pickup only.”
