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.

Ali Fedotowsky is well aware of the fact that it's been more than a year since viewers witnessed her engagement to Roberto Martinez on The Bachelorette season 6 finale.

Despite speculation that their union is on the rocks, Fedotowsky says the couple is doing just fine, and that the pressure to set a wedding date following their televised courtship and engagement overwhelmed them. Another complication: difficulty in scheduling a televised wedding.
