Bachelor Nation fans do not need an introduction to Kaitlyn Bristowe. The 34-year-old Canadian was a contestant on the 19th season of The Bachelor (with Chris Soules as the lead) before becoming the lead on the 11th season of The Bachelorette. Ever since, she's been a constant presence within Bachelor Nation.
And tonight, Kaitlyn will be returning to ABC to take part in a sit-down with host Chris Harrison for The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons–Ever.
This is me, preparing myself for my interview catch up with my man @chrisbharrison after tonight’s episode. I’ve went back and forth on wanting to watch, but because of the support I have here, I’m going to. It will be emotional, and I think really hard. But I’m hoping to be able to look at it with gratitude, talk through it, and know there are worse things going on in the world than re airing my season. Plus the ending with J is my favorite part. ❤️ Will you guys watch with us? #TheBachelorgoat #thebachelorette

During her Bachelorette season, Kaitlyn accepted a proposal from Shawn Booth, but they broke up in 2018, per People. Since then, she's settled down in Nashville, where she lives with her current boyfriend, Jason Tartick (who competed on Becca Kufrin's Bachelorette season), and their two golden retrievers.

But she's also been super busy building her empire and making some serious dough along the way. According to Fame 10, Kaitlyn's net worth is around $3.5 million. But it might be a lot higher, considering the hustle she has going.
Here's how the former Bachelorette makes her money:
She likely made bank on The Bachelorette.
The leads of these series can make a lot of money. On average, The Bachelor or Bachelorette reportedly makes around $100,000 per season, and some leads can make more. Season 8’s Emily Maynard was paid $250,000, per Fox Business.

Plus, Kaitlyn hosts her own podcast.
She's the host of the super popular podcast Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe, which garners about 500,000 downloads per episode, according to The Washington Post. Since podcasts tend to operate on ad revenue, it's unknown how much she makes per episode, but chances are it's a nice chunk of cash.
And she has a YouTube show.
Kaitlyn has her own wine line, too.
Kaitlyn launched her line of wine, called Spade & Sparrows, in 2019. The label has three different kinds of wine: Pinot Grigio 2.0, Rose 2.0, and a Pinot Noir. Each bottle retails for $19.85.
These past few months I have really learned to practice patience…and I know all of you have been right there with me. Because of COVID-19, the production of @spadeandsparrows 2.0 was seriously delayed. With everything going on in the world, I think it’s time for some good news. Today I am officially launching the Spade & Sparrows Wine Club. If you want to have some dam good wine delivered right to your door (every 3 months) and join my virtual wine community (#WineGang) throw up a couple of 🍷🍷🍷 in the comments. Where my BIG WINE GUYS AT? 🎵 You can find me IN DA CLUB! 🎶♠️ 📸: @moonriderpro Link in bio!

Kaitlyn's also starting her music career.
In May 2020, Kaitlyn dropped her very first single titled "If I'm Being Honest." The country song entered the Billboard charts at #21 the week it was released and also hit #2 on the iTunes charts.
If I’m being honest, I didn’t think I would ever release this song. I was too afraid, insecure, and kept doing the classic “what if”. I don’t know who needs to hear this but f*ck the what if’s. This uncertain time has shed light on how important time is. So while this song has been collecting dust for over a year, I’ve finally decided to share it with you. Singing has always been something that makes my heart happy. So if I’m being honest, Im still feeling insecure, yet PROUD to share this with you now. I even think we can all relate to the lyrics right now. It’s available wherever you get your music or my bio. Love you guys. Thank you. #IfImBeingHonest Also huge shout out to @jennifer_denmark @savannahkeyesmusic for helping me write this, and @itsmikemiller for producing it.

She's landed tons of sponsorships.
Of course, where would a former Bachelorette be without a whole slew of sponsored Instagram posts? Kaitlyn has associated herself with lots of brands, including REVOLVE, The Farmer's Dog, Smash + Tess, and more.
