I just heard Bob on Ben & Ashley's podcast. He sounds really happy about his wife and the baby. He joked that he & Andrew Firestone say that they were Bachelors before abs and before themes for the seasons. I really liked him on Trista's season but he let it go to his head like a lot of Bachelors, imo. He seems pretty down to earth these days. He was joking that his Bachelorette season was in 1974 and his season was 1975 when Ben asked how long ago it was. I can't believe it was 15 years ago!

Wow. Bob is going to be a first time father at age 47? Take those vitamins, exercise and eat healthy. Take it from me, it isn't easy to be a older parent.

Such a fascinating topic and part of our culture imo.

I don’t follow other reality shows, so I wonder if casts from other shows are also influencers and make 6 figures?

yes  great article.
I’d love the income but posing and selling product wouldn’t do it for me. I guess I’m old school in that although I’ve switched careers, I’ve always been dedicated to my job because it comes with feelings of fulfillment, accomplishment, and growth. It’s something I need to feel my best and that wouldn’t come (for me)  from likes on IG.
I don’t mind someone like Sharleen who initially needed outside income because opera parts are hard to come by. Shilling allowed her to subsist in between casting calls and performances while pursuing her real passion even though she has never been able to really break into the opera world in a sustainable way. At least she still gets parts from time to time and shilling is more pleasant than being a waitress or some such. Plus she puts a lot of visible effort into her multiple platform recapping, which I believe is a true talent of hers, so she isn’t a one trick pony.

Regardless, I think the lure of being part of the franchise alumni millionaire club (many post tagged pics and IG story ads several times a week unlike the article looking at 7-8 times a month) certainly speaks to motivation for being on the show; particularly women since they are selling product women want so are more in demand by brands.
It is what it is and reveals a type.

I saw an old episode of Frasier (I think it was season one or two, 1993-1994, something like that) where Frasier got offered to endorse products or businesses on his radio show. At first he declined because he didn't want to compromise his integrity as an psychiatrist. But then he saw that it paid a lot and decided to only run the ads where he has tried the products and actually likes them. At the end he said 'No' to a tv commercial that was offensive to him.
I thought it was very interesting , given that this was more than 25 years ago. Of course, the media is completely different today and so are the dynamics, but it's the same question of integrity.

yes  that’s a great example.
I think it also speaks to the degree of value one places on money as compared to other things. As you pointed out, it may be where each person stands on a continuum. Perhaps integrity is at one end and greed on the other. Supplemental income within parameters vs multiple ads of whatever per week. Weighing opportunities vs the impulse to get rich quick. It’s another example of it’s not what a person does, it’s how a person does it that delineates one’s character from another’s based on what point of the continuum they ultimately stand.

Thanks for the compliment, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. I certainly don't feel like a teen! laugh out loud I never know if it is just growing older or having autoimmune hypothyroidism. *le sigh*

That’s a lot of money! I tend to skip over the shilling posts but I'm not their prime target. I checked out some of my favorite bloggers and they don’t have nearly the followers the Bach alumni do, even Shay Shull, Sean Lowe’s sister. They mostly do clothes/jewelry/makeup/skincare but also things like groceries online and then pick up at the store before I had even heard of it. I'm sure they’re doing pretty well and the blog ads bring in money also. It’s a nice job if you can get it.

I just saw a thread on reddit about Juelia Kinney getting engaged to Evan's brother...

The 2 met last year at Evan and Carly's wedding and started dating not long after. And, after looking at Juelia's twitter feed, it appears she moved to Nashville with her daughter. I'm guessing that is where Aaron lives.

I only know her from MBC (she was on with JJ) but after the way he treated her, I am so glad that she has found someone that loves her and her little girl.
