KROQ DJ Wins a Date with Scarlett Johansson

How much would you pay for an evening with Scarlett Johansson?

Well, Bean Baxter from the Kevin and Bean show on KROQ (106.7 FM) paid $7,000 in a charity auction to spend the evening with the bombshell actress at the New York premiere of We Bought A Zoo Monday night.

Sounds like the perfect evening right?

Try telling that to the morning show co-host who placed the bid as a joke in an attempt to burn his colleagues and has no desire to actually go through with the offer now that he’s won.

According to the terms on the website, the prize cannot be resold or re-auctioned and the proceeds benefit Blessings in a Backpack, which helps meet the nutritional needs of children and families.

You can listen to the final segment from Thursday’s Kevin and Bean show as they countdown until the close of the auction.
