Out singer Lance Bass has said that he
lost his bid for The Brady Bunch house.
On Friday, Bass tweeted that he had won
the bidding war that erupted over the house that served as the
exterior of the Bradys' home. The Los Angeles house hit the market
with an asking price of $1.88 million.
“Super excited to announce they
accepted my offer on the #BradyBunch house last night!!!” Bass
said. “This is going to be a fun project.”

to drive up the price of the home knowing very well that this

it is not demolished. … To make me happier you can register and
vote November 6th,” he added.
Bass, who has plans to start a family
with husband Michael Turchin, earlier said that he wanted to buy the
house because he's “obsessed” with the 70s series.
