She went out on a date with Marc (the trip they won to Jamaica never materialized, though) and the two became friends. If not, though, Sandler wants to tell him, “Congratulations!

She later met and married Justin, “a beautiful rock star” who performs in a band called Bullet Boys and Hollywood Roses, a Guns N’ Roses cover band.
