Reality TV Stars Who Went Broke
After finding love on "
The Bachelor" and then having it unravel soon after, Aaron Buerge returned to his Springfield, Missouri, hometown, where he largely lived out of the spotlight. But not long after marrying and starting a family, he found himself back in the spotlight in 2011. A restaurateur and businessman, he and his wife filed for bankruptcy and listed liabilities that totaled $9.3 million. He told
People that he made the filing when a loan holder demanded that he repay a restaurant loan "more quickly than he had planned." He noted, "I'm not broke. I'm not in financial distress -- nothing like that. ... We've been making payments ... every month, but they've just been pushing to come after some private assets that I might have."
