She’s taking over! Bachelorette alum Tayshia Adams replaced Clare Crawley as the lead on season 16 after she got engaged to contestant Dale Moss. Now, she and fellow alum Kaitlyn Bristowe have returned to the franchise to host season 17 and 18 of The Bachelorette, so we’re breaking down Tayshia’s net worth. The reality star has anywhere from $1 million to $5 million, according to sites like NetWorthspedia and Trend Celebs Now. To learn more about how much money Tayshia makes, keep reading! 

Tayshia Adams makes bank from The Bachelorette:

The leads of the hit ABC franchise make, on average, about $100,000 a season, according to Reality Steve. However, in the past, some ladies have been able to negotiate higher pay, like Emily Maynard who secured a $250,000 salary for her time on season 8.

Additionally, leads supposedly get paid according to their real-job salary, per Amy Kaufman‘s book, Bachelor Nation — which means Tayshia’s take-home could really fall anywhere on the spectrum.

Finally, there is the question of Clare’s pay, considering she filmed for several weeks before Tayshia was brought on. Did the ladies somehow split that $100,000 salary? Were they each given their own cash despite the switch-up? Those questions remain unanswered.

Following her stint as the Bachelorette, she and Kaitlyn returned to the series to guide Bachelorette Katie Thurston through the process after longtime host Chris Harrison stepped down. Though her salary for the position is unknown, it can be assumed she is making a decent paycheck during her second appearance on the show.

Although Tayshia left season 16 engaged to contestant Zac Clark, the pair ultimately called it quits in November 2021. “All I have to say is that I’m heartbroken,” Tayshia revealed during Michelle Young‘s The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All episode on December 6. “But we tried really hard and I still love him very much and I’m not sure what the future holds.”

Prior to calling it quits, Life & Style broke the news that the pair was “taking some time apart to figure things out.”

Tayshia Adams has two lucrative jobs IRL:

When she appeared on season 23 of The Bachelor, the brunette beauty was working as a phlebotomist, a.k.a. a medical professional who draws blood from patients for tests, transfusions, medical research and blood donations. However, in March 2019, she revealed she was changing career paths.

“I’m not practicing phlebotomy anymore. I don’t know if I’ll go back into medicine,” Tayshia explained in an interview with Vulture. “As much as I love it and went to school for it, my passion has always been in real estate, development, interior design and architecture. I think I’m going to gravitate towards that. I’m currently working at an interior design firm, and I hope this blossoms and opens doors for my career.”

On average, phlebotomists make around $50,000 a year, while interior designers usually consider that a starting salary. With time and experience, these home gurus can bring home up to $80,000 a year — and probably more if you start working with celebrity clientele. All in all, there’s room for growth!

Tayshia Adams has a huge social media following:

With 1.8 million followers on Instagram and another 149,400 on Twitter, Tayshia is able to partner with brands for paid advertisement posts (oh, that influencer life). She has worked with car company Hyundai and hair tools brand Conair.
