    In the name of the Merciful Allah,
    Hi everybody, what is " bachelor auction"? I heard it once, but I don't remember its context. Could you help me?

    I think it's a way of raising money for charity. An eligible bachelor (young/good looking/rich/famous man without a wife) is offered as a 'prize'. The highest bidder gets to go out for dinner with him.

    It's a charity event used to raise money. What ever organization is hosting the event will ask some local good-looking men (often local celebrities, like radio DJs or TV news anchors) to participate. Each bachelor goes onstage one at a time and the women in the audience bid money on him. The woman who bids the highest amount gets to go on a special "date" with him. The date can be anything from a ride in a luxury limo to a five-star restaurant for dinner and dancing, or a golf lesson from a pro and lunch at the country club.

    Do you think you could get them to come home and paint the living room?

    I've never seen one of these in real life, have you? Only in TV shows or the movies.
