Bulging endowments (both natural and man-made), sun-kissed skin, and scandalous bikinis are a sure thing to be seen among the contestants on “The Bachelor,” so it’s not a big leap that Sports Illustrated joined forces with the sexy reality dating show for a photo shoot date on next week’s episode, aptly airing on V-Day, Feb. 14!

But this isn’t just any random photo shoot. According to People, three lucky ladies will not only have the chance to be snapped skin-on-skin with Brad Womack, but their pics will also be featured in the magazine’s annual swimsuit issue! (We’ll be sure to look for the ant-size photos in the back pages! Whoo hoo!)

Of these ladies, one is 26-year-old Philadelphia dentist Ashley Hebert (pictured above with Brad-dilda, in what must be the most unflattering hair shot ever).

“Finding out that we were going to be in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition was one of the biggest surprises of my life,” she says. “It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all of us. The photographer was so incredibly talented, and I’m excited to see his artistic vision come to life in the photos. Watch out, Gisele!” (Uh, keep your day job, Ash.)

Considering Michelle Money and Chantal O’Brien are the other two ladies on the SI group date, the episode will be sure to bring on the drama … because we know how much they love each other’s company.

“The Bachelor” airs Mondays on ABC at 8/7c.
