CNBC reports that the Bachelor earns a salary of over $100,000 but the women frequently have to quit their jobs and some spent a small fortune on clothes hoping to find love.
Contestants tell of one woman spending about $40,000 on her wardrobe. The show apparently does not provide clothes, makeup or other services. While food is offered, you have to do your own cooking in the “mansion.”
Those contestants portrayed badly in the show have had trouble finding employment after being cut in the “rose ceremony.”
Perhaps the next show’s contestants should crowdfund his/her appearance.
