Honey Badger Was Paid A Ridic Amount For His Time On Bachie

1 min read

An ex-contestant has spilled the beans. 

Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins may have left The Bachelor sans missus, but his bank account sure was happy. 

Spurned Bachie contestant Brooke Blurton has dished the deets on Nick’s fat paycheque during an interview on the Shameless podcast.

While it was initially believed that the rugby star signed on with Channel 10 for $250,000, Brooke reckons the real number is double that amount.

“I think it was a bit more, I think it was half a mill maybe,” she told podcast hosts, Zara McDonald and Michelle Andrews.

If Brookey’s correct, Nick is officially the highest-paid star in the Bachie franchise's history. 

It’s believed that past contestants like Matty J fetched $200,000 for his time as the Bachelor, while Sophie Monk received a reported $300,000 to film The Bachelorette.

We can’t imagine how the Married At First Sight camp will feel upon hearing about the Honey Badger’s earnings. 

Telv Williams from the 2018 season of MAFS revealed contestants earn a measly $150 smackers a day (tax free).

"You gotta do all your own hair and makeup. You gotta do your own dress, buy your own clothes," he added.

We know which show we’re gonna apply for if we ever feel the urge to find a reality tv ~luhhver~.
