An erectile dysfunction specialist competing for love? You better believe it.

The Bachelor franchise has certainly had its fair share of contestants with odd jobs through the years (see Tiara the "chicken enthusiast" from Ben Higgins' season 20 of The Bachelor) — but the gentleman competing in the upcoming 12th season of JoJo Fletcher's The Bachelorette take the cake.

ABC released the lineup of 26 eligible bachelors vying for JoJo's heart on Thursday, and among them are a 28-year-old hipster from Los Angeles and a guy named James who is described only as a "Bachelor superfan." With this eclectic group, the Texan real estate developer, 25, and her fans are sure to be in for a wild ride when the ABC show kicks off May 23.

JoJo previously appeared as the runner-up on Ben's season of The Bachelor, which aired earlier this year. In a first for the long-running dating series, Ben told both JoJo and and contestant Lauren Bushnell that he loved them, making for an especially heartbreaking finale when JoJo was sent home (Ben and Lauren are currently engaged).

"Watching it back, I kind of had to relive it and I definitely remember how sad I was," JoJo said after the finale aired and before she began filming her season. "But I'm not bitter and I'm not angry. Ben followed his heart. Even though it didn't work out, it still was a great relationship and I learned a lot from him."

Now, with filming wrapped, JoJo's journey to find love continues on TV with the below hopeful suitors. Ranging in ages from 26 to 34, take a look at the group of over two dozen men hoping to get down on one knee below — including "former pro quarterback" Jordan Rodgers, brother to Green Bay Packers’ quarterback and Olivia Munn boyfriend Aaron Rodgers.
