Bachelor Eric Bigger meets CU
CHAMPAIGN, ILL. (WCCU) —
Eric Bigger is still looking for love, and this weekend he's right here in Champaign.
The former contestant on the 2017 season of The Bachelorette was at 51 Main for a meet and greet Friday night.
The event included a live auction, where fans had the chance to win a date with Bigger for Saturday night.
Bigger said this is his first time in Champaign.
"The new energy, the new people you get to learn about people and their experiences from watching the show,” Bigger said. “You should come out, it's going to be a good time. I have a lot of energy, it's going to be very interesting, it's going to be a lot of fun and you get to know more about who I am."
All proceeds from the live auction benefit Hospice Hearts.
