Need a Prom Date? Try eBay Stu Hemesath is taking Rachel Kay to her senior prom. That wouldn't be big news outside certain high school circles in Cedar Falls, Iowa -- except Rachel had the winning bid for Stu on eBay: $29.95. The price doesn't cover the limo and flowers. It's a good deal, if Stu's description of himself as a popular wrestler is accurate.
