Contestants Invest a Lot to Appear on the Show
Personal time, access to real life, and normal social contact are just a few things the women give up to participate on The Bachelor. For many, appearing on the show has proven to be quite a big financial investment, too. Apart from leaving their day jobs behind, contestants may spend extravagantly on impressive clothing and beauty services. In Olivia Caridi's case, investing in private makeup lessons was also on her list of preshow to-do's. According to Allure, she hired a makeup artist with reality TV experience to teach her the ins and outs of contouring before meeting season 20's Ben Higgins.
