Chad Walldorf is the hero who won the eBay auction for the Portrait of Stephen Colbert with Portrait of Stephen Colbert.
Chad is a co-owner of the Sticky Fingers Barbeque family of restaurants.
Chad requested that Stephen sign the Portrait not once, but twice: once at the base of the Portrait, and again at the base of the Portrait within a Portrait. Stephen graciously added an 8x10 glossy copy of the Portrait, along with a set of wallet size copies.
The winning bid was $50,605 dollars. It is unknown whether he payed with PayPal, a credit card or his first born son.
The Portrait is viewable at the downtown location of Sticky Fingers Barbecue restaurant in Stephen's hometown of Charleston, South Carolina.
