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!)

It's not for everyone.
Unlike the newest Bachelor couple, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici – who are saving sex for their wedding night – Ashley Hebert and her Bachelorette-winner hubby, J.P. Rosenbaum, didn't wait for marriage.
"I don't even know where to go with that one," Rosenbaum tells PEOPLE with a laugh on Thursday, when asked his thoughts on the topic. "It's a belief and we don't share it."

He may have sent her home on The Bachelor, but Sean Lowe knows how much America fell in love with Desiree Hartsock.
Which is why he believes she's the perfect choice to be the next star of The Bachelorette, coming this summer.
"They couldn't have chosen a better Bachelorette," Lowe, 29, tells PEOPLE.
"I've said from the beginning, my vote was always for Des. She's America's sweetheart, and I think she's going into it with sincere intentions."

Meet the new Bachelorette!
She started out as one of 26 women vying for Sean Lowe's heart on The Bachelor, but now fan favorite Desiree Hartsock (known affectionately as Des) will be calling the shots this summer as the latest star of The Bachelorette.
"I just can't even believe I'm here. With the support of everyone, it's just such a blessing," she said after Chris Harrison announced her on Monday's After the Final Rose special. "I could never have imagined signing up for The Bachelor and having this opportunity."

The Bachelor's current star, Sean Lowe, was joined by past franchise favorites on Jan. 11 to celebrate 25 seasons of the hit ABC reality dating show.
The Texas hunk clinked glasses at the famed Agoura Hills, Calif., Bachelor mansion with series creator Mike Fleiss and past Bachelorettes Ali Fedotowsky, Trista Sutter, Jillian Harris, DeAnna Pappas and the show's most recent star, Emily Maynard.
Also on hand were former Bachelor Jason Mesnick and his wife, Molly, who is expecting the couple's first child in March, as well as former contestants Courtney Robertson, Michael and Stephen Stagliano, Erica Rose and Casey Shteamer.

Monica Rizzo, a senior writer for PEOPLE who has been covering TV for 14 years, attended Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum's wedding this month. Here, she shares some of what you won't see this Sunday when The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.'s Wedding airs on ABC.
It was four years ago that I first started covering The Bachelor and The Bachelorette for PEOPLE. If someone had told me then that one day I would be quiver-lipped and sniffling as I watched two reality stars get married while the cameras rolled for a TV special, I would have rolled my eyes.
No, not me. Never.
But alas, that was me on Dec. 1, in the third row, beaming and tearing up as I watched Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum, whom she chose at the end of her season on The Bachelorette, exchange vows in front of 200 guests at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, Calif.

Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum's wedding was picture perfect.
In an exclusive shot from the couple's weekend nuptials, the newlyweds – who met on season 7 of The Bachelorette and got engaged on the season finale – beam with joy.
Hebert, 28, and Rosenbaum, 35, say that even though their wedding was filmed for TV (it will air Dec. 16 as a two-hour special on ABC) their love is as genuine as it comes.
"The ceremony was simple, sweet and personal," Hebert tells PEOPLE in its new issue, on newsstands Friday. Adds Rosenbaum, "We didn't want it to be a circus."

It’s official: Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert and her fiancé J.P. Rosenbaum tied the knot Saturday afternoon in Pasadena, Calif.
Surrounded by family, friends and fellow Bachelor and Bachelorette alumni like Ali Fedotowsky, Emily Maynard, and Jason and Molly Mesnick, the couple said "I do" in an outdoor ceremony officiated by franchise host Chris Harrison.
"Today is all about our friends and family," Hebert, whose nuptials will air Dec. 16 on a two-hour special on ABC, tells PEOPLE. "It's about standing with J.P., looking around at all the people we love in the same room there to celebrate our love."

Ben Flajnik has seen the pictures of his ex-fiancée with another Bachelor franchise alum and has to wonder: Who is that woman?
"I'm glad there is a new guy," he says, referring to Courtney Robertson's new relationship with Bachelorette hunk Arie Luyendyk. "I see certain things in the media and I wonder, did I ever really know her? I try to avoid it all together."
He continues, "I look at these staged photos of the two of them and I'm like: Why is she doing this? The girl that I loved never wanted to be famous and I look at these set-ups and I think I got out at the right time."
