Fans of The Bachelorette can now bid on dream dates of their own with such past season hunks as newly-single Kiptyn Locke and Roberto Martinez, who split with season 6's Ali Fedotowsky, as they auction themselves off for charity.

Locke and Martinez are planning a San Diego outdoor adventure, and it's being auctioned off online to raise money for a charity supporting colorectal cancer patients.

Their day includes horseback riding, a surfing lesson and a fireside hangout on the beach. (Though it's not meant to end in roses or romance – sorry, ladies!)

The online bidding for the two hunks is part of a bigger charity event, The LA Dream Date Auction, to be held April 5 at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., for the Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation. Rocker Orianthi is set to perform at the second annual gala, which raises money for $250 grants awarded to cancer patients who are struggling financially as they seek treatments.



At that event, co-chaired by Our America host and new mom Lisa Ling, other stars of past seasons of the The Bachelor will participate in a live auction in which the reality stars will host the winners on an experience.

Lindsay Yenter, 24, a substitute school teacher from Missouri who was the runner-up after being turned down by this season's Bachelor Sean Lowe, is putting herself on the block for charity.

Model Courtney Robertson, an Arizona native who won Ben Flajnik's heart on Season 16 of The Bachelor, only to break up later, is also putting herself up for bid, along with Season 17 contestant, Lesley Murphy, an Arkansas native who now works in Washington, D.C.
