As we found out with Married At First Sight, the quest for love on reality TV might bring increase your Instagram following, but it certainly doesn't increase your bank balance.
Yesterday, Bachelor in Paradise star Ivan Krslovic (the oddball who put a whole, unpeeled avocado in a blender for some ungodly reason) revealed on radio that he was getting paid around $100-$200 per day to tan and find a girlfriend in Fiji.

“Yeah we definitely do (get paid), yeah,” he told Hit 103.5’s Carly & Seamus.
“Most of us have got full-time jobs so we need money to pay for bills and stuff … it’s enough, it’s enough to get us through the week.”
When Ivasn was asked if the pay was the same $150 a day figure as thre stars of MAFS, the dancer confirmed: “Oh thereabouts. I mean, we’re sipping cocktails and sitting around in our boardshorts so it’s not too bad.”
Whilst B-grade Ivan might be getting paid the measly sum of a MAFS star, other cast members in Paradise are believed to be earning a far higher figure.
Last month The Daily Telegraph reported that Alex Nation — who won the 2016 season of The Bachelor — was lured back to the franchise with a staggering $5000 per day pay packet.
The newspaper also reported that other cast members are earning more than Ivan, but still less than Alex, with a $500 a day fee.
Not too shabby!
