Producers of The Bachelor not only pay the female contestants a boatload of money to participate on the show, but they also use leading questions and manipulative editing to create a lot of the drama on the show. While some of it is real, a lot of the storylines are made up in post-production.
Of course, the counterpart to The Bachelor, The Bachelorette is just as misleading as its complementary show. Most of the contestants that stay on the show are the ones with volatile personalities. Many contestants have admitted that the real reason they join the show is to enjoy the Bachelor Mansion and travel the world for free.
