Former “Bachelor” stars Jason Tartick and Dean Unglert revealed how much money the franchise gives its stars.

Unglert had the conversation with Tartick on his podcast, “Trading Secrets,” Monday.

“They hit me up and they were like, ‘Hey, do you want to do “Bachelor in Paradise,” this other show that pays $400 a day, and you could be there for up to 30 days,’ something like that,” Unglert told Tartick.

“So I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, great. Four hundred bucks a day, 30 days, $12,000, that’s fantastic,'” Unglert recalled.

Unglert eventually negotiated to $600 a day instead.

Unglert, who is dating Caelynn Miller-Keyes, claimed he was approached to be the lead for the “Bachelor” for $75,000. Tartick revealed he also was once considered for the role of “The Bachelor” and would have been offered $100,000 if he landed it. Colton Underwood ended up with the role that season.

I had no idea they paid the stars that much money. No wonder people put their lives on hold for this kind of thing. I knew they probably paid them, but not this well. Maybe I really should deeply consider going on this show.

I would love to be handed $100,000 to just be myself on national television.
