What happens to the stars of The Bachelor after their time on the franchise ends? How much are they really worth? Let’s dive into the net worth of some of the most famous Bachelor Nation members.

Bachelor Alums With Lowest Net Worths

Not all of the Bachelor leads have been able to turn reality TV fame into money. Season 18 Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis has the lowest net worth of all 28 leads with a reported net worth of $85,000, as reported by Just Jared.

Not surprisingly, Bachelor leads you barely remember, Aaron Buerge (Season 2,) Matt Grant (Season 12,) and Andrew Baldwin (Season 10) have an average net worth of around $130,000.

Despite starring in his own reality show with his final rose winner, Ben Higgins net worth is reportedly only $100,000. Nick Viall, who recently competed on Special Forces has a reported net worth of $129,000.

Surprisingly, the franchise’s first Bachelor, Alex Michel, has a been living a good life in the years since his season. He has a reported net worth of $191,000.

Season 20’s Matt James and the most recent Bachelor, Joey Graziadei have equal net worths at $250,000.

Season 27’s Zach Shallcross is worth a little more at an estimated $300,000.

Stars Worth $500,000 Or More

Fans may be surprised to know that super popular alum Sean Lowe’s net worth is just $500,000. That’s the same as the Season 19 lead, Chris Soules.

Brad Womack, who was Bachelor twice, also has a reported net worth of $500,000. Recent Traitors contestant and Season 24 Bachelor Peter Weber’s net worth is estimated at $500,000. Perhaps his day job as a pilot doesn’t pay much.

Long-ago leads Charlie O’Connell (Season 7) and Byron Velvick (Season 6) both are estimated to be worth $600,000. Season 14 lead Jake Pavelka has a slightly higher net worth at $700,000.

Winemaker and Season 16 star Ben Flajnik has a net worth of approximately $800,000.

Million Dollar Alums

So far, we can see that reality TV isn’t as lucrative as people seem to think. However, quite a few Bachelor alums have net worths of $1 million or more, including Clayton Echard, Jason Mesnick and Colton Underwood.

The first-ever Golden Bachelor, Gerry Turner reportedly has a net worth of $1.5 millions, but fans think money issues led to his split from Theresa Nist.

Not surprisingly, race car driver and Season 22 Bachelor has one of the higher net worths at $4 million.

But that’s chump change compared to host and former lead Jesse Palmer who allegedly has a net worth of $8 million.

Who Is The Wealthiest Bachelor Lead?

The title for wealthiest lead comes down to a tie between Season 9’s Lorenzo Borghese and Andrew Firestone (Season 3.) They both have an estimated net worth of $50 million.
