Bachelorette contestant files for bankruptcy

Posted on Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 at 8:28 pm    

Jonathan Holloway was eliminated on season 11 of the Bachelorette by Kaitlyn Bristowe this past week, according to Inquisitr on June 15. It was immediately announced that he would be joining the cast of Bachelor in Paradise, the spin-off show of the Bachelor in which past contestants look for love on a tropical island. The news came soon after it was reported that Holloway had filed for bankruptcy.

On the Bachelor and Bachelorette, contestants go unpaid for days and weeks while they look for love. The speculation behind Holloway’s bankruptcy may be linked to the financial strain he endured while filming the Bachelorette or have stemmed from a source before the show began.

Bachelor in Paradise, however, pays its contestants a substantial fee for the duration of the show. The reality stars are paid between $7,000-$15,000 depending on their popularity and length of film time. The show films for three weeks, making the several thousand dollar paycheck appealing. It may be for this reason that Holloway chose to join the cast rather than return home.
