Now we understand why people cry after being eliminated...

Earlier this week, the world watched Colton Underwood meet more than 20 women on his first night as The Bachelor. ABC has struck gold with this concept and there have been several spinoffs of the show including The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, Bachelor Winter Games and more. The idea is to help people find love.

Or, in some cases, fame.

We all want to think that people are there for the "right reasons", but there are others who just want an endorsement with Fab Fit Fun or something similar after the show is over. And they play their cards right to get themselves through each week.

But man is that an expensive risk to take!

E News took a look at how much money it can cost to compete on the Bachelor or Bachelorette. And let's just say that it definitely costs more for the women than the men. There's just more maintenance involved... Or the guys don't care as much about how they look on camera.

Here's how it breaks down when it comes to typical expenses...
