How much do they get paid for being "The Bachelor?" Just out of curiosity... how much do the contestants get paid?

It's rumored on the net that the bachelor or bachelorette get paid a six figure income and the contestants a two figure. Wich in reality (pardon the pun) is not bad for the short amount of time they are on the show. Plus it's rumored the more popular you are the more you will make.
I've seen a lot of articles say they're broken up now, and HE was cheating on her.
Yeah, I've heard those too. What I read was he was trying to pick up girls in NYC and was telling them he couldn't really be seen with them until after the show was finished airing, but that he WAS going to be available then. And supposedly he was taking girls phone numbers, etc. But then I've also read a story that said they were still together. I can't imagine it lasting long though if it's not over yet. She's a witch and he's an idiot. Although who knows.....maybe witches and idiots make lovely couples.
Okay....just read the article. I hadn't heard he was spending the night with other girls. I'm surprised by that as they usually try to keep the ending (who they picked, if they're still together, etc) a total secret until after the final episode airs. I imagine the Bachelor people aren't too happy with him right now.

I've heard it is anywhere from 75,000-125,000 depending on how popular you are. I can't wait to hear what Emily is getting paid. I'm sure her change of heart in deciding to do the show had nothing to do with the paycheck....;-)
