Now there's a headline you don't get to use every day.
But there is a connection — a real one that is made its debut on Jan. 4.
The newest season of ABC's “The Bachelor” features Caila Quinn as one of the women vying for the attention of this year's bachelor, Ben Higgins.
So that's the reality TV part. And the rotational molding element? Quinn, 24, is the daughter of Chris Quinn, CEO of Step2 Co. LLC, the rotomolding toymaker in Streetsboro, Ohio, and his wife, Rosanna.
In an interview with the Akron Beacon Journal, Chris Quinn said he was limited in what he could say because of non-disclosure contracts with the show, but noted his daughter, who works in software sales, was excited.
“I didn't want to crush her Cinderella dreams, which is really the truth. The reason she wanted to go on the show was she felt a connection with the bachelor, Ben Higgins, and felt like he was a real and genuine person that she could establish a relationship with,” he told the newspaper.
(I seriously expect that may be the only time I can use that phrase in print at PN.)
The blogger site “Reality Steve” says to expect her to stick around for a while, so maybe Chris Quinn and the rest of the family will show up later this year. Or at least a toy kitchen set.
