9. Ben Flajnik

Estimated Net Worth: $800,000. Ben Flajnik seemed like a super nice guy until he picked mean girl Courtney Robertson the end. And it wasn’t long before the tabloids were filled with stories of Ben’s cheating ways and eventually the happy couple split. But this seedy bachelor babe has earned himself a pretty penny planting grapes and running his company Envolve Wines out of Sonoma, California. The fella is worth an estimated $800,000!

8. Jason Mesnick

Estimated Net Worth: $1 million. Jason Mesnick will always be one of the most memorable Bachelor leads thanks to his infamous “switch” on the season’s finale when he instead chose his runner-up Molly Malaney after already proposing to Melissa Rycroft. Despite the negative backlash, it seemed to be the right move as the two are still happily married and working in real estate has accrued Mesnick a very respectable estimated net worth of $1 million.

7. Brad Womack

Estimated Net Worth: $500,000. Brad Womack starred on seasons 11 and 15 of The Bachelor, and while he didn’t find love, he did take home a decent paycheck from the franchise. The hunky jerk also owns a bar that earns him a pretty penny. Brad Womack has a fortune in the six figures so despite his bad rep, we’d say he’s living pretty comfortably with his estimated net worth of $500,000!

6. Jake Pavelka

Estimated Net Worth: $700,000. When Jake Pavelka proposed to Vienna Girardi, audiences were shocked and quite frankly appalled. But after the couple had a very public split it became clear that when Girardi called Pavelka a “fame whore,” she may have been spot on! Jake seems to have left his days as a pilot behind and has been tearing it up on reality TV. He’s appeared on Dancing with the Stars, Bachelor Pad, Famous Food and Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off. And of course, you can’t forget his actual acting gigs as the pilot on The Bold and the Beautiful and on the web series Burning Love. His transition into legit actor was a fail, but nonetheless he is worth a respectable $700,000!

3. Juan Pablo

Estimated Net Worth: $1.5 Million. Back in 2013, it was estimated that the most hated Bachelor of all time was worth an estimated $1.5 million. He is a former soccer pro turned sports and music consultant, and the single-dad made some big bucks from his time with the Bachelor franchise. Too bad he’s such a dang awful person!

2. Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Estimated Net Worth: $4 Million. Unlike some of the other Bachelor leads, Arie Luyendyk Jr. already had quite the established net worth thanks to a career in racecar driving and growing up in a racing family. After taking a break from racing he appeared on season eight of The Bachelorette and was forgotten about until he was a surprising pick for season 22 of The Bachelor six years later. He also had a memorable run after proposing to Becca Kufrin but then deciding he was instead in love with his runner-up Lauren Burnham and broke up with Kufrin on national TV to pursue Burnham instead. It worked out however as Becca found love as the season 14 Bachelorette and Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham have married and welcomed a daughter!
