Man Who Bid $30,000 Dines With Jessica Biel

A man who bid $30,000 to have lunch with Jessica Biel, Esquire magazine's "Sexiest Woman Alive," sealed the deal Friday.

The man, identified only as John, was dressed in a white suit with a blue shirt and striped tie when he had lunch with the actress at Denver's Palm restaurant, said Jeanne Lee, a Denver-based publicist.

Biel, a star on television's "7th heaven," and the film "Elizabethtown," agreed to have lunch with the highest bidder as part of a fund raiser for Molly Bloom, an 18-year-old woman who lost a leg in a May 13 accident.

The charity event dubbed "Mollypalooza" raised $44,000 to help cover Bloom's medical expenses.

Though wishing to remain anonymous, "John" told reporters earlier he's a senior vice president for an oil and gas company in Denver.
