“The Bachelorette” Australia runner up Michael Turnbull is back in the dating scene.
Michael clearly has not given up on love, and he is now offering a dinner date – this time it is for a good cause.
Fox Sports is auctioning off a date with “The Bachelorette” Australia finalist to raise funds for Joey Lynch, a 23-year-old Australian who is suffering from Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Sydney Confidential reported.
Lynch is suffering from the illness for the past eight years and he needs to raise $800,000 for a clinical trial in the United States.
The auction, which was launched last week, can be found in eBay. The bid starts at $500.
The winning bidder will have the chance to dine with the 34-year-old bachelor at a premium restaurant Michael selected himself, and will also get return flights from your nearest capital city.
Those bidding in the auction will have to apply for pre-approval first, the Daily Mail noted.
The bidding will be closed on Saturday (Nov. 15).
In an interview with Sydney Confidential, Turnbull was asked what would the winning bidder could expect from him on their date. The former professional footballer replied: “I don’t know! Apparently I’m not very good at dates, I didn’t get the girl!”
Michael added, “I can promise that whoever does win the date will have a great time. It’ll be at a great restaurant, with beautiful food and wine.”
Michael has been spreading good deeds recently. He given away a pair of football boots, signed by the Melbourne Victory, recently.

Before that, he also gave away a night at Brisbane’s Royal Croquet Club.
Michael is one of the top contenders for the next season of “The Bachelor” Australia.
Although there is no official announcement on who will be the next most eligible bachelor Down Under, Michael is already highly considered for the part.
“Well, it worked for Sam! I’m open to all opportunities. I had such a positive experience, regardless of the outcome — the experience was so great for me…So if I was lucky enough to get offered it, I would definitely consider it. I just really think it was such a positive experience,” he said in an interview.
