"J-Lo has always been one of our most popular figures but she's been getting even more attention since the news of her single status," Colin Thomas, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hollywood, said in statement obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com. "We decided to invite former TV Bachelors living in the area to get up close with J-Lo."
