Here's How Much Jillian Harris Is Really Worth

Looking for love on The Bachelor and its female-led spinoff show, The Bachelorette, is a dream come true for participants. Even if you don't win at the end, the series is guaranteed to catapult contestants into some level of stardom — they may not be fielding calls from Hollywood, but they'll likely get a sponsorship deal for Instagram. The true cost of The Bachelor that no one really talks about is shocking but in spite of the financial difficulties the show's participants might willingly take on to appear on it, the end results are arguably worth it, depending on what kind of career they're after.  

There are Bachelor Nation fan favorites, of course, but massive fame on the show doesn't necessarily translate into big bucks elsewhere. Still, play your cards right and a stint on The Bachelor franchise could be your ticket to financial security. In the case of one particular Bachelorette star, it's set her up for life. 

The Bachelorette was a major stepping stone for Jillian Harris

Jillian Harris appeared in season five of The Bachelorette. She ultimately chose Ed Swiderski in the end, but the couple split just over a year later. Harris later found love with Justin Pasutto, whom she is engaged to (they have postponed their wedding for now), and has two children with, named Leo and Annie (via People). 

As noted by Celebrity Net Worth, Harris returned to reality TV in 2010, appearing as a designer on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. In 2012, she hosted Canadian reality series, Handyman Challenge, followed by Love It or List It Vancouver (she even won an award for this!) the following year. Elsewhere, Harris has made appearances on HGTV Insider, Game of Homes, and also featured on her own reality series with Pasutto called Jillian and Justin. 

Forbes visited her stunning Canadian abode in 2015, with Harris explaining she didn't mind spending big money on her dream home because, "It's like buying a new pair of shoes, it's worth the peace of mind to invest extra money and having no regrets." She can certainly afford it, with Celebrity Net Worth estimating her net worth at a whopping $3 million.
