So, you already know that The Bachelorette star JoJo Fletcher looked amazing this season with the help of stylist Cary Fetman. But what about the ladies of The Bachelor who have the tricky task of packing for the show themselves? Well, Refinery29 interviewed former contestants to get the scoop, and we learned lots of insider tidbits.
The most fascinating thing we learned from the interviews? Just how much money the women spend on their outfits. While one former contestant told Refinery29 that she only spent $200 because she borrowed from friends, the other end of the spectrum could not have been more different.
Sarah Herron, a contestant on Sean Lowe’s season, told Refinery29 how much she shelled out: “For season 1 [of The Bachelor], I spent roughly $6,000. By Bachelor in Paradise 3, I only spent about $2,000 to $3,000. Still, it’s out of control and I’m still paying off my credit cards.” She went on to say that she knows of women who spent upward of $30,000 for the show. Now that’s a mind-blowing statistic.
