Good thing Andi Dorfman is starring on The Bachelorette "for the right reasons," because she certainly isn't getting paid very much to do it. In fact, it seems that the Georgia lawyer is one of the lowest paid in recent years. And the disparity is HUGE. We are not talking about a few thousand dollars here, but hundreds of thousands of dollars less than those that came before her.
According to Life & Style, she's only making $50,000 this season. On the outset, it may sound like a lot of cash to live in a mansion, date 25 hot guys, and travel the world for romantic rendezvous. But wait until you hear what other Bachelorettes raked in.
Desiree Hartsock reportedly made $200,000 and Emily Maynard supposedly got $250,000 for her season 8 turn on the show. Even the guys pull in a lot more. Sean Lowe made somewhere between $75,000 and $90,000 for season 17 of The Bachelor.
Honestly, I can see why she makes so much less. Andi is far less interesting and dynamic than those previous stars. Clearly producers agree -- otherwise, they would be paying her more.
The source for the article also said that Andi has no intention on going back to her job as a lawyer once the show ends. "She wants to see where this takes her," said the friend. Oh boy! Looks like someone has been bitten by the fame bug! Makes us wonder if she is really in it for the right reasons after all.
Do you think Andi deserves so much less than Emily?
