If you've been downtown sometime in the past few days, you may have seen a new advertisement near the intersection of Washington and North Michigan. The billboard, a two-month contract purchased for just over $1000 from Lamar Outdoor, reads "Toledo's #1 Bachelor Seeking Woman 18-35." It has a white-gloved hand holding a single red rose with just an email address to contact the Glass City's self-proclaimed most eligible man.
Toledo's #1 Bachelor seems to legitimately hope the billboard is his answer to finding love. He agreed to an interview on The Scott Sands Show this afternoon, where he asked to remain anonymous; but, did reveal that he is in his 30s and owns a local business. He told us that he tried, unsuccessfully, using Tinder, Match, Bumble and other dating services. So far, Toledo's #1 Bachelor says he has received more than 200 email responses to his billboard and some of them appear to be serious inquiries.
