Last week on the Rachael Ray Show former pop sensation, 98 Degrees band member and reality TV star Nick Lachey told Rachel he is working on a new "project" called winnit.com, a lowest unique bidder auction like Dubli. I don't know if Nick is an investor, a partner or what, but having a celebrity in the penny auction arena is pretty interesting.
Winnit.com is auctioning off a 2010 Porsche Cayman, but it doesn't end for 63 more days.
Here are a few quotes from the interview:
Nick: "It's a really, really, really cool website I'm a part of now."
Rachael: "You can literally win it for a couple of bucks, isn't that weird?"

For contrast, here is an interview with Foundation Capital's Charles Moldow, who invested $4.5 million in Project Fair Bid along with two other VCs.
