Bachelor Nation participants have to follow some weird AF rules–you won’t even believe it.
Bachelor Nation participants (leading men/women and contestants) have a very interesting set of rules they must follow when they agree to do the show. While most of us understand that they can’t have their phones or any contact with the outside world, that is the least of the daily luxuries they have to give up.
For instance, did you know that they can’t even listen to music? Yes…that’s right. They even have to pay for their own wardrobe–at least the suitors do. There are a lot of restrictions on them from every angle which makes the Royal Family’s traditions seem laxer.
I was surprised to learn just how intense some of these rules are–and I’m sure you will be too.
No internet, no TV, no music
Uhh, wait what? It’s not a shocker that Bachelor Nation folks start acting all kinds of crazy over the course of the season. How do you get through these brutal months without listening to your favorite tunes? Or binging Netflix?
I think we can all start to understand why the stress levels are at an all-time high. I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t get some quality TV time, or at the very least, dance out my stress to my favorite music. Props to the contestants and leading men/women for managing months without it.
Sorry, you have to pay for your makeup and wardrobe
Looking as glamorous as Bachelor Nation contestants and suitors do isn’t easy. And by that I mean they have to pay for their own stuff. Contestant Jillian Harris, in fact, stated she spent around $8,000 on clothing and even remortgaged her house. Olivia Caridi apparently spent nearly $40,000 on her wardrobe. Talk about dedicated, folks!
The heat is on…because there is no air conditioning.
This might be one of the most ridiculous ones if you’re asking me. Due to the noise AC units create, it’s rather difficult to edit it out. It’s starting to make sense as to why everyone’s always chugging down cold drinks.
With how hot temperatures can get in Southern California–is having no AC even legal? Just asking.
