That’s a Lot of Roses! See What the Highest-Earning ‘Bachelor’ and ‘Bachelorette’ Stars Make

Former Bachelors and Bachelorettes have amassed huge fortunes from their time on reality TV. From an heir to literal royalty, the leads with the highest net worths will shock you. 

Although Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants do not get paid, becoming the lead offers a hefty payday. “They really just match whatever you’d be making in the real world during the months that it tapes. And then you have the experience that kind of pays for the rest,” Ben Higgins previously said in 2016. “You don’t do The Bachelor to make money, I will say that.”

Emily Maynard is reportedly the highest-paid Bachelorette ever, raking in $250,000 for the season. Of course, many opportunities arise from being on the show. Hannah Brown, Matt James and Gabby Windey scored spots on Dancing With the Stars, and Kaitlyn Bristowe, who also competed on the show, has her own podcast.
