"If you love music like I do, let's play together," Lester said, who plays bass guitar.
"We would love to meet you, and we would love to have you come on down," said Erica. She encouraged fans who are also foodies to submit their essay with her in mind.
"You may know that I love to cook, it's sort of my little zen moment of stress relief, so if you're a foodie too, you like to whip up a little something in the kitchen, why don't we cook together?"
All adrenaline junkies should aim their essay at Jenna, who has promised to take a fan water-skiing somewhere warm.
Those in the mood for something calmer will be treated to a day of golf with Dylan. "Golf is one of my passions...Maybe we can play a round together," she said.
