The Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher鈥檚 26 bachelor candidates were announced today to much fanfare, and while we鈥檙e attempting to reserve any and all judgment until the show airs (May 23 on ABC) and their true personalities are revealed, some of their鈥 professions? Are just downright bizarre. We guess we shouldn鈥檛 be too surprised 鈥 there is, after all, plenty about being a Bachelor/Bachelorette contestant that you wouldn鈥檛聽expect. Nevertheless, we鈥檝e highlighted the wackiest gigs her would-be suitors claim to excel at for your reading pleasure below!


1. Evan: Erectile Dysfunction Specialist: We鈥檙e not exactly sure how one finds their way into this profession, but this definitely takes the cake as the most bizarre profession on our list. And that鈥檚 not where the peculiarity ends: Evan鈥檚 deal breakers include 鈥済irls with chipped nails, girls who talk too much and girls with serious food allergies.鈥 Oh. And if he could be one person for a day? He鈥檇 pick Trump 鈥渏ust to see what the heck is in that guy鈥檚 head.鈥 Alrighty, then!


2. Brandon: Professional Hipster: What, pray tell, does a 鈥減rofessional hipster鈥 do? And without a single visible tattoo, no less? If he鈥檚 as big of a hopeless romantic as he claims to be, 鈥淚 see love everywhere. I want to experience love from the inside out. I want The Notebook type of experience.鈥 We鈥檒l let it slide.

3. James S: Bachelor Superfan: 27-year-old James S. seems nice enough 鈥 his longest relationship lasted seven years, he says he鈥檚 been intimate with very few women (鈥淚 think sex is very important and not to be taken lightly,鈥) and he doesn鈥檛 believe a woman should touch 鈥渢he door and bill鈥 on a date. Ah, yes: and did we mention The Notebook is listed amongst his favorite movies too? That being said, we鈥檝e gotta鈥 say, we鈥檙e a tad skeptical of any one that lists 鈥Bachelor superfan鈥 as their occupation. Is he here as an ultimate fanboy, or for JoJo?

4. James F.: Boxing Club Owner: While this is actually a pretty kickass career, it falls on the list because, well, we can鈥檛 say that we鈥檝e ever met a boxing club owner. James F. says he 鈥渓eft the safety of the chiropractic world鈥 in order to 鈥減ursue his fitness and acting dreams.鈥 Good for you for following your heart, James F. 鈥 for JoJo鈥檚 sake, let鈥檚 hope you do the same when it comes to relationships!


5. Robert 鈥淩obby鈥: Former Competitive Swimmer: The 27-year-old says he has spent 鈥渕ore of his life in a speedo than in everyday clothes,鈥 though he 鈥渓oves more than anything to dress up.鈥 JoJo seemed fairly comfortable in the water last season herself (comfortable enough to say 鈥 gasp! 鈥 I love you), so maybe this is a match made in Heaven?


6. Jordan: Former Pro Quarterback: Just 27, Jordan has already retired from football (he played for Vanderbilt for two years before joining the NFL as a member of the Miami Dolphins, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers), but though it may not have been his calling in life, it was for someone close to him 鈥 his brother, AARON RODGERS. That鈥檚 riggggghhht! Jojo鈥檚 suitor (and food-critic hopeful) is related to one of the Packers鈥 finest. It鈥檚 gonna be an interesting season!
