Apparently the bachelor/ettes don't get any compensation, according to this article. Compare this to what DWTS contestants get. If true, who could afford to go on The Bachelor/ette? Article from July 9,2008. I think the bolded blue and red items below are very interesting.


A moment with ... Jason Mesnick, 'The Bachelorette's' jilted suitor
Kirkland resident says: 'I don't have any regrets'
By MOLLY MULLEN
SEATTLE P-I REPORTER

After the heartbreak of divorce, Kirkland's Jason Mesnick went on ABC's "The Bachelorette" looking for love, only to be heartbroken again. In Monday's finale of the reality/romance show, he got down on one knee to propose to bachelorette DeAnna Pappas, but Pappas brought him back to his feet and told Mesnick she was in love with someone else -- the show's other finalist, Jesse Csincsak. Now Mesnick says he's ready to love again.



- Women demand jilted 'Bachelorette' suitor Mesnick's phone number
On whether he would consider appearing on "The Bachelor":

It's just something I haven't even thought about. It's something, if offered, I would definitely consider. I have not been approached by anyone, though.

(Pappas was a jilted suitor on "The Bachelor" before she was asked to be the selector on "The Bachelorette.")

On where he is right now:

I've been back home for almost two months. When I got home, I got one day off, and I had to go straight back to work (he's an account exec). Everyone at home, all my friends and family, have been so kind, so generous.

On whether he has any regrets about appearing on "The Bachelorette":


ABC
Jason Mesnick of Kirkland proposes to DeAnna Pappas on ABC's "The Bachelorette" on Monday, but she told him she was in love with the show's other finalist.
I don't have any regrets. I can stand here today saying I wish she would have picked me because we got along so well. Seeing her with Jesse added closure for me. She didn't look at me like that. I deserve that look, and everybody deserves that.

On whether the contestants get any compensation:

Not a penny. We get to do some of the most amazing things in the world, though. It's not easy. I got picked up in a helicopter. I sat in Einstein's chair in the observatory, (went) diving with sharks. All these things you can't put a monetary price on.
On the number of crew members present during shoots:

I got to know some of the crew who I will be friends with my entire life. There are tons of people working on this show. People work so hard. Producers got there at 7 in the morning and didn't leave until 6 the next morning.

On what TV viewers may have missed:

The whole (marriage) proposal. The show made it look like I got down on my knee and she brought me right back up. I talked to her for a while down there. It was a lot longer of a process. I felt disrespected (by DeAnna). That is something I would never do to anybody. I wish they showed more of that moment.

On whether he and Pappas have had any contact since the show ended:

We've talked since the finale, and we plan on staying friends.

On his son's feelings about all this:

He met DeAnna only that one time. All he knew was she was Daddy's friend. Daddy has lots of friends, guys and girls, so he didn't know more than that.

That probably doesn't apply totally to the main bachelor/ette but it could. Also some people have been known to tell a fib or two, so who really knows. But if getting Jason was the prize instead of a paycheck ... (and/or, in Jason's case, riding in a helicopter, sitting in Einstein's chair, or diving with sharks, instead of earning a living to provide for his son) ... oh my! zip a lip

Maybe someone should check with that person at the FORT (sdl) I think, that has access to the contracts, or of course Reality Steve.

I would be amazed to find that they receive no compensation. How could that many people leave jobs for that long with no pay?

Somebody other than Jason will have to say that for me to believe it.

Ok, my friends, I spent the last hour reading the Bachelor form contract and I'm going to give you my thoughts. If you hate all things lawyer, or this bores you to death, please skip this note.
* There are two schools of thought in drafting contracts - the one advanced by Thomas Jefferson and friends (wherefore, premises considered...) and people who have defended contracts after 1990 (plain English). The Bachelor contract fits into the first category, which means it is exceedlngly "gray," "dense" and hard to understand.
* the thing that many people don't understand about corporate America is that most big companies are not nearly as smart or powerful as one might think. Like anyone else, they have budget constraints and never does anyone say, "let's throw some money at the legal department!"
- the legal department is a backwater to the "revenue generating" divisions, poorly staffed and, comparatively speaking, not that well paid. Contracts, being the most mundane of tasks, fall to the youngest and least seasoned attorneys. That's why most big company contracts read like gibberish...this one is no exception.
- contracts are usually forms, which are recycled forever, cut and paste, by the 1st or 2nd year idiots told to prepare them, and so they are infrequently updated to adhere to current legal requirements, and rarely does anyone look at them to ask if they really make sense.
- the real value of a contract is that in all that legalese, there is something that some stiffy can point to and scare someone, but the actual piece of paper is often worthless.
* provisions of interest in the Bachelor contract:
- the parties are the person and "Syndicated Productions, Inc." No mention of ABC or whoever else is involved in the production of this show. Bad, because if you're not mentioned, you can't sue to enforce it.
- lots of releases of future problems that may arise - generally unenforceable because you can't release something unknown to you.
- retains control of all publicity, interviews, etc for one year following the FRC - this means that they have to approve interviews such as those we've read of Shannon, Naomi, etc. - which makes their content interesting.
- refers to an "Honorarium" paid to participants for agreeing to all of this, but the amount is not specified
- "Indemnification" language out of the 19th century - not valid in most states, including California, because it is not CONSPICUOUS and is fatally vague.
- liquidated damages provision specifies that Syndicated Productions has damages of more than $5 million if confidentiality breached. This provision has to be tied to some real loss, can't just pick a number, or it's unenforceable.
- sole remedy is arbitration...this goes both ways. In other words, Syndicated Productions can't just file suit. They have to go through the steps to take it to arbitration. Pretty weak enforcement mechanism.

**** The point of what I'm saying is that I read a lot of stuff on the board about ABC and their team of lawyers, and why people couldn't do something because of this contract...and it's all fiction. The contract is crap and the lawyers are weak, and never has ABC effectively enforced this document, because, well, good luck trying.

The Bachelor's Jason Mesnick and his pick, girlfriend Molly Malaney, lunching at West Hollywood's Ketchup. The cute couple sat near the window, across the table from each other and "were very flirty," an onlooker tells us. Malaney was also on her cell talking to a pal and "seemed very excited about the lunch."

Isn't Ketchup one of Boogie's restaurants?

That looks like the outfit Molly was wearing when she and Jason were hounded by someone with a video cam which was posted somewhere around here.

I believe Ketchup is one of the resturants Boogie is involved in. Heck, Boogie doesn't mind if he or his friends treat women disrespectfully on national TV or the National Internet (LOL). He probably gave them a free lunch and a pat on the back!

That picture is so funny! Jason looks like he's peeking around Molly, a little fearfully, to see if any of the nasty reporters are out there.

Is Andy Baldwin the Officer?

I believe it was the Officer that said the same thing in an (radio?) interview. I believe it was posted here.

Who was it that didn't pick either one at the end?

thanks.

Ok, I just found the interview I was referring to, and it was Andy. He says pretty much the same thing as he's saying on his Twitter.
