‘The Bachelor’: Who Has the Highest Net Worth? The Answer Might Surprise You
The Bachelor has served as a platform for contestants to pursue larger entertainment avenues since its inception in 2002. Former leads and contestants have gone on to host other television shows, compete in more reality television, write books, and create podcasts. Some have even found luck in scripted television. But who from The Bachelor has the highest net worth, accumulating the most wealth in their career?
Hannah Brown is among the contestants with highest net worth
Hannah Brown, who was on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor and then led her own season of The Bachelorette in 2019, has made a living out of being an influencer after her time on the ABC show. Brown competed on Dancing with the Stars following her bachelorette stint and won the coveted mirror ball in the end.
The star has since launched her own YouTube channel, in which she discusses self-care, religion, dating, and more. Brown has the largest amount of social media followers of anyone in Bachelor Nation. But she doesn’t have the highest net worth, despite an alleged worth of $1.5 million per The Betchelor podcast’s Instagram account, per Reddit.
Who from ‘The Bachelor’ franchise has the highest net worth?
Some of the most recognizable names from Bachelor Nation made The Betchelor’s list. Ryan Sutter, who won the first season of The Bachelorette, is on the list, with a reported net worth of $2 million.
Emily Maynard and her final picks from The Bachelorette make the list as well. Maynard reportedly has a higher net worth than both Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Jef Holm, who were both on her season. She is allegedly worth $5 million, while Luyendyk Jr. closely behind is worth $4 million, and then Holm with $3 million.
The person from The Bachelor franchise with the highest net worth might be surprising to newer fans of the show. Prince Lorenzo Borghese allegedly is worth the most: $50 million.
Who is Prince Lorenzo Borghese from ‘The Bachelor’?
Prince Lorenzo Borghese (whose title is not official, per Italian Genealogy) was the lead of The Bachelor Season 9 in 2006 when he was 33 years old. Yes, that’s right — The Bachelor had a real-life “prince” as the lead for one season.
The “prince” sought love in his home country of Italy. He looked for love in a cast of almost-entirely American women. They fought not only for his heart, but also to be an Italian “princess.” He ended up with Jennifer Wilson, a then 24-year-old teacher from Florida. The couple didn’t get engaged. They broke up after the show. The former lead then pursued Sadie Murray, who was his second-choice pick, per Reality TV World. They are no longer together either.
After The Bachelor, Borghese parodied the reality television show in a web series called America’s Next Princess. It featured a cast of animals “looking for love.” The star also was on Celebrity Big Brother UK in 2012.
