Thank you so much. Some lucky lady will not only marry a truly wonderful and loving guy one day, but a remarkable, caring family too. The best of both worlds. Good luck, Chris, may there always be a rainbow with you.Originally Posted by latergator;3953537;Really nice article written about Chris on May 14, 2010 by Mark Skala :: Cape’s Chris Lambton on ‘The Bachelorette’ — maybe the good guy will finish first : All Things Cape Cod

Cape’s Chris Lambton on ‘The Bachelorette’ — maybe the good guy will finish first

The latest installment of the reality dating series “The Bachelorette” premiers in just over a week on ABC. When it airs on Monday, May 24, Cape Cod will have representation with Chris Lambton of Dennis.
The contestants on the show who will vie for the affections of a beautiful blonde named Ali, were a closely guarded secret until a week or so ago. Or so people thought. It was pretty common knowledge around Dennis that Chris was among the 25 chosen from a field of thousands to participate in the reality show. I understand the family has been sworn to secrecy and they never let out a word, try as I met to get Chris’ dad, Ed, to tell us what he knew. He was like that infamous German officer in Hogan’s Heroes TV fame “who knew nothing.” Well, it is official now as the ABC network has put brief bios and pictures of the 25 men on its website.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing the Lambton family for more than 20 years. In fact, Ed was the one who gave me a tip that there might be a reporting job at a small weekly on Cape. He had seen the ad seeking reporters. I was fresh out of college at the time, applied and got the job. That’s the kind of people they are — always thinking of others and genuinely great people. I don’t know Chris well but have followed what he has been up to in life through his mom and dad. Chris’ mom, Marge, was a close friend to my sister until Marge’s death in late 2008. Marge fought a valiant effort with her disease for a number of years but never lost her sense of caring for others, or her true goodness. Chris gave up a promising teaching career in New York City several years ago to come home and help care for his mom.
The show is not something I’ve ever really paid much attention to, but have read and seen lots about the failed relationships and all the craziness about it in the tabloid media. I will tune in to the premier to see how Chris fares. Maybe, just maybe, the good guy will finish first.
