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.
