    Robin is donating a chance to sit on the show on Charity Buzz. It is the same donation Howard has done in the past. Unlike when Howard does it, there isn't one or two people bidding against themselves to drive the price up to the $20-30k range in the first 24 hours. So far Robin's auction item has been up for two days and has had 7 bids and is currently at $8k. It will be interesting to see where the lot closes at. But I bet it will be far less than anything Howard donates. Possible proof that Howard bids (or has a staff member bid) to drive up the price?

    I mean it is the same prize. Wouldn't people still pay the same amount of money to sit in whether it is Howard or Robin donating it?
