Things took a turn in the days after Bass' tweet. After Lance announced the news, he says his offer was thrown out for a higher bid. A bummed-out Bass posted an emotional post on Instagram reading, "Here's the tale of a shady Brady."
"I'm feeling heartbroken today," Bass wrote. "As many of you may have heard, we placed the winning bid on the iconic Brady Bunch house—at least that’s what we were told. The agent representing the estate informed us we made the winning bid (which was WAY over the asking price) after the final deadline for all offers had passed—even writing up the 'winning bid' for my team after informing me of the good news. Isn’t a deadline a deadline? This was a dream come true for me and I spent the night celebrating amongst friends, family, and fans alike."
However due to "unforseen circumstances," Bass claims that "the same agent informed us that there’s another Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house at any cost. We were prepared to go even higher but totally discouraged by the sellers agent, they will outperform any bid with unlimited resources. How is this fair or legal?? How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity?"
Bass finished the post by saying that he "feels used" and says that he is hopeful that the house is not demolished by the new corporate ownership.
