After the last rose is handed out and the last tear is shed, Bachelor contestants start considering their next move. And because they don't make any money actually being on the show, they have to take advantage of their time in the spotlight while they can. They are public figures and media personalities now, with all sorts of opportunities to lend their semi-famous faces to brands on Instagram. But they have to cash in quickly — every season, new contestants come into the picture to steal the show.
