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.

Former Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky celebrated her 28th birthday in Chicago on Wednesday night.
The LXTV 1st Look host hung out at hotspot Nellcôte where she shared small plates and neopolitan style pizzas with friends.
"Their table was directly next to the DJ and Ali was saying she's been taking DJ lessons, so she asked if she could spin a few songs," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
After Fedotowsky tried her hand at playing for the crowd, the group took shots of Nellcote's reserved bourbon blend, followed by a platter of Sprinkles cupcakes.
"Ali had a hard time making a birthday wish because her friends used trick candles!" the source adds.

The Bachelor can claim another successful match!
Producers Cassie Lambert and Pete Scalettar, who met while working on ABC's hit dating show, tied the knot in Malibu on Saturday – and host Chris Harrison married them.
"It might be a new job for me," Harrison said of getting ordained to officiate the couple's wedding. "They asked me in Prague this season [of The Bachelorette] when we were there if I would do it for them. ... I love them to death and I've seen then grow as a couple and I love them as a couple and as individuals."

It's been done many times before: The winning contestant on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette finds true love. And then the relationship falls apart and they return to the show as the ones handing out the roses.
But will Roberto Martinez, whose breakup from Ali Fedotowsky came after an 18-month engagement, follow suit?
"It's far too soon to say who the next Bachelor will be, but Roberto is definitely someone producers are considering," a source close to the show tells PEOPLE.

The reality star joined Ali Fedotowsky and Ashley Hebert for a makeup appointment and some chitchat at Blushington Makeup & Beauty Lounge in West Hollywood.

But after an 18-month engagement, the pair called it quits on Nov. 21 – and now, Fedotowsky is speaking out about what went wrong.
"I wouldn't be being truthful if I said this came out of nowhere," a tearful Fedotowsky, 27, tells PEOPLE for its new issue, on newsstands Friday.
"We definitely had been having problems. But I had always believed that we could work it out."
