NSYNC’s Lance Bass placed a bid to buy the iconic Brady Bunch house and lost. Bass first announced his exciting plans last week.
"Super excited to announce they accepted my offer on the #BradyBunch house last night!!! This is going to be a fun project!"
Bass placed his bid to purchase the home in San Fernando Valley on Thursday but was told by Sunday that someone else had made a winning offer, an unnamed Hollywood Studio willing to pay whatever the cost.
The famous home of the Brady Bunch was put on the market in July with an asking price of $1.885 million. With two bedrooms and three baths, the well-known property is in high demand given its appearance in the hit sitcoms credits.

Aside from NSYNC star Lance Bass’ interest in the Brady Bunch house, Property Brother Jonathan Scott also placed a bid in the hopes of securing the property where Carol, Mike, Alice and the kids lived.

Both stars lost out and Bass was publicly upset over the news that he was not the winning bidder after all telling his fans the sad news.
“This was a dream come true for me and I spent the night celebrating amongst friends, family, and fans alike,” Bass shared. “The next day, due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’ the same agent informed us that there’s another Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house at any cost."
Bass believes that something "shady" went down, costing him the chance to purchase the Brady Bunch home. But according to Page Six, the sellers had eight offers and ultimaltey narrowed it down to three potential buyers before selecting the final owner.
“It got down to a horse race, and from those three an ultimate prevailing bid was selected by the trustee and a backup,” real-estate agent Ernie Carswell said.
