    Yeah that's the one I thought I quoted but my bad. I'm talking about Ben. He has a receding hairline he's trying to hide it with his big hair. It's not a biggy but everyone keeps asking about his hair.

    I don't even remember him talking much about the winery this year. I mean I don't even know what the name of his winery is But I do know what I've been reading all over the net and in the tabs. And I don't think Ben has enough fans to buy a case of wine let alone make any significant contribution to the success of the winery. I'm sure the "viewing party" probably consisted of 2-3 women getting away from their family for an evening. I can't see him making anything out of his apperance on this show except for a season on the highly acclaimed BP.

    Heh. I have no idea how the winery is doing either but am wondering if the kind of publicity he has been getting will be adversely affecting the label's sales. I do remember reading in a blog somewhere that one of their wines won some type of award. Don't know how prestigious it was or anything.

    The name of Ben's winery is called Envolve Winery... they have two labels. Envolve Wines and Epilogue wines (the latter being launched last year.) Or so says its website.

    Just because I had a few minutes to kill, I looked up the competition in which his winery won an award. About 20 bazillion awards were given out. His was one of 13 gold medals in a specific category (sauvignon blanc from $14.99 to $19.99). There were three "Double Gold" winners and two "Best of Class" in that same category. Doesn't sound all that special to me.

    I've entered crochet work in the county and state fairs. In some competitive environments, EVERY entrant wins some type of recognition. Shucks - I even won a blue ribbon. I usually don't mention that mine was the only entry in that specific category.

    Here's a link, in case anyone is interested.

    If he were ambitious enough, Ben could spin off his 15 minutes of fame into additional business ventures -- similar to Bethenny Frankel. But then again, since most of Bethenny's success seems to come from women who think colon cleansers and lip gloss with her logo are somehow superior to anything without her name on it, maybe not. The "skinny girl" logo is gold, for reasons I will never understand, but I imagine it has something to do with women wanting to be just like her, and that wouldn't work for Ben.

    Maybe he could do a special bottling of a wine that's guaranteed to get MODELS to go skinny dipping. :-)
