They were always there "for all the right reasons." And even now, after 25 combined seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, fans still haven't gotten tired of the drama, cat fights, and hot tub hijinks that make for an amazing season.
Who should win as the best Bachelor of all: Jake Pavelka, who chose bad-girl Vienna only to break up with her in a vicious televised special? Sean Lowe, who vowed to hold off on sex with his pick, Catherine Giudici, until their summer 2013 wedding night? Or Jason Mesnick, who popped the question to Melissa Rycroft, then pulled a switcheroo at the reunion? (He just had a baby with his final choice, Molly Malaney.) And remember Season 2 star Aaron Buerge? He ranks as the highest rated Bachelor of all time, with 26 millions viewers tuning in as he popped the question to Helene Eksterowicz in 2002.

Sorry ladies, but Tim Tebow won't be fantasy dating or finding his soul mate on The Bachelor.

"Haha rumors can be crazy! Even though I've watched the show before, I'm definitely not gonna be on the Bachelor. #JessePalmer," wrote Tebow, 24.

Jesse Csincsak and Ann Lueders, former contestants on The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, aren't expecting their first child until the winter. But they tell PEOPLE they've already picked out a name, Noah, and have doubled the size of their family in the meantime by adopting two Siberian husky puppies.
"We thought, 'Hey, let's just take the hit all at once,' " says Csincsak, 28, a pro snowboarder who won the fourth season of The Bachelorette (though his relationship with DeAnna Pappas didn't last). "So, you get all the puking, vomiting and peeing on the carpet out of the way all at once, and then buy new furniture, all at once!"
