Dennis Hof stopped by with a girl named Natalee and her sister, Avia, to auction off Natalee's virginity. Howard immediately told him that he was irked by the Rush & Molloy article that claimed he was "kicking off" the auction, so Dennis replied that it was Judith Regan's idea to tip Rush & Molloy – and denied telling them that Howard was involved in the auction. .Howard then turned to Natalee and asked why she would auction her virginity, so she explained that she got the idea after reading a news story about a Peruvian girl who auctioned her virginity for $1.5 million
Natalee noted that he planned to use the money to pay for her (and her sister's) master degree(s) in Marriage & Family Studies, but she won't let just any guy win the auction: "He has to be a good guy." Howard wondered how Natalee planned to prove her virginity, so Dennis claimed she was willing to submit to a physical examination and a lie detector test: "I think it's admirable that she's using the money for a master's degree and not just weed and Budweiser.
