We were surprised to see two members of the media rounding out today’s New York Post‘s list of the twelve most eligible bachelors in New York.
The Post‘s Raakhee Mirchandani included filmmaker and Vanity Fair blogger — and Johnson & Johnson heir — Jamie Johnson and Eater.com co-founder Ben Leventhal on the list along with wealthy banker Topper Mortimer and comedian Andy Samberg.
Here’s Mirchandani’s case for both: Johnson is an heir to part of his family’s estimated $138 billion fortune and writes about the secret lives of the super-rich for VF.com. His only downfall? Stubble. (We can deal.)
Leventhal, according to the Post, is a media mogul (he’s co-owner of the Curbed network and managing editor for lifestyle content on NBC Local Media’s sites) who loves dogs and vintage Rolex watches. The cons of pursuing him? “Used to date Internet fame-chaser Julia Allison.” Today, Allison responded by Tweeting, “Who is this Raakhee Mirchandani?!?! Because I am going to kick his/her ass.”
