What a (charitable) success!
Fans of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette raised close to $60,000 for the Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation during a recent auction at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., and the reality show contestants were out in full force.
Recently single Kiptyn Locke and Roberto Martinez – who auctioned themselves off for a rugged day date, that included horseback riding, a surfing lesson and a fireside hangout on the beach – hung out together for much of the night and got a ton of attention from female attendees. But neither guy was looking for romance. They truly were there for the charity.

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 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.
