'Bachelor' couple Andrew Firestone and Jen Schefft attend Indy 500 together

Finally, a couple from a dating show that does things together in public after the show is over. The Boston Herald 'Inside Track' reports that Andrew Firestone, star of ABC's The Bachelor, and his chosen partner Jen Schefft attended the Indianapolis 500 together over Memorial Day weekend. According to the story, it was the first time Firestone, whose family helped pioneer auto racing, had ever attended the race.
A man who had his picture taken with the couple said that "all the wives were blown away at how much prettier Jen is in person." However, looks can only take Jen so far; Andrew apparently still wants to live together with her for a year before considering marriage.
Also present at Indy was Melissa Jo ("Mojo") from Fox's Joe Millionaire, dressed in Spandex and ultra-high heels, which led the onlooker to wonder: "Does she crave attention that much that she'd come to a raceway dressed like that?" Anyone who watched "the Mojo way" on Joe Millionaire knows the answer to that question.
