Stars of The Bachelorette and The Bachelor make roughly $100,000 for the season, according to reality show blogger Stephen Carbone. Contestants, however, do not get paid. This could be a problem considering some of them leave their jobs just to appear on the reality show and get their shot at love—or at least 15 minutes of fame. According to Hollywood Life, one of the highest-paid Bachelorette stars was Emily Maynard, who reportedly received $250,000.

If you’re wondering about the benefits, there are plenty. Some of the perks of working for ABC include employee discounts and a pension plan. One employee on Glassdoor described the pension plan as “amazing.” Another said the plan was “good” and that ABC is “a great company to work for.”

As can be expected, not all the reviews were glowing. One employee said the company’s work-life balance was “really bad.” Overall, ABC’s Glassdoor review was a 3.7 out of a possible 5 stars. It seems like there’s room for improvement, but most employees are happy—at least that’s what it looks like from the Glassdoor reviews. These comments are anonymous so there’s always the possibility that a manager or someone from human resources is filling out some of the surveys and giving overly positive reviews.
