How much did Katie Thurston make from The Bachelorette?

KATIE Thurston's Bachelorette appearance will see her raking in a large sum.

Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will host the new Bachelorette series after Chris Harrison’s departure from the franchise.

How much did Katie Thurston make from The Bachelorette?

It's reported that Bachelorette leads take home hefty paychecks from their seasons.

Bachelor expert Amy Kaufman penned in her book Bachelor Nation that “incredibly rare for someone to make less than six figures.”

Emily Maynard was reportedly paid around $250,000 for leading the show.

There's additional income for couples who stay together beyond the program. If a couple from the show chooses to televise their wedding, they reportedly can earn an additional $1 million from ABC, writes Cheat Sheet.

Bachelorette couple Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter allegedly settled for that amount of cash after their union was televised.

It's thought that season 17's Katie Thurston will take home well beyond six figures due to her social media presence.

Famous reality stars can reportedly bring in around $1 million per year just with social media. Per post, famous influencers typically make between $5,000 and $15,000.

Is The Bachelorette real or scripted?

For the most part, The Bachelorette is real, but former contestants have provided insight into some of the show's elements that are somewhat scripted.

Bachelor and Bachelorette contracts allegedly state that contestants must “follow all of Producer’s rules, directions and instructions in all matters, including Participant selection.”

In former Bachelor Sean Lowe's memoir For the Right Reasons, he revealed that he filmed some of his confessionals weeks after dates would happen.

I’d say things like, ‘I’m having a blast with Des tonight, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.’ It wasn’t disingenuous, because I expressed what my true feelings were at the time. Mainly, it was boring.”

Although the show doesn't follow a strict script, the footage is edited to fit a narrative.

Contestant Luke Stone once called out Bachelor in Paradise producers and claimed that episode footage was edited to look like he was rejected.

How can I watch The Bachelorette?

The Bachelorette will premiere on June 7 on ABC. 

Previous seasons of the show are currently available for streaming on Hulu with a paid subscription.

Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will host the new series after Chris Harrison’s departure from the franchise.

Thurston's season was reportedly so successful it wrapped early.

Insiders shared the franchise's new star was "in control" and very quickly sent lots of men home.
