The Bachelor contestants might be seen sauntering around a mansion in sequined gowns and teetering high heels but the actual wage they earn while on the show is meagre to say the least. 

Just $90 a day is all the girls receive for their time on the show… so after the 18 weeks or three months the winner has to be in the house, they are taking home a mere $6300 – $2100 tax free per month. 

The premise of such a low pay rate? Producers wanted to ensure the contestants were on the show for the right reason – to find love.
