In August 2011, Matt Grant from ABC dating show "The Bachelor" and Juan Barbieri and Jonathan Novack from "The Bachelorette," as well as members from the male erotic dance company Chippendales showed their love for Jennifer Lopez, or rather, her wax figure at the Madame Tussauds museums in Hollywood and in Las Vegas, weeks after she and husband Marc Anthony announced their split.

"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."
