The City of Houston Paid $240K To Be Featured On The Bachelor

However, some citizens feel differently, “I think that’s too expensive. They already make enough profit off of the show, so why are you still trying to upcharge us for just Houston, coming to Houston,” Houstonian Sara Perez told the news source. While local fans knew The Bachelor came into Houston, most, like Erika Esperanza, weren’t aware the city used tax dollars to fund the trip, “That’s insane,” she commented in the article. “I didn’t think they would actually pay to bring them here.” Despite the anger, it isn’t uncommon for cities to host things solely for marketing purposes. Though one could argue a giant city like Houston may not need the publicity.

While the amount of money Houston First Corporation spent on The Bachelor is shocking, what’s more baffling is the way in which the show really didn’t highlight Houston. They tried Barbeque and went to a pier in another city, when they could have gone to the Rodeo if they scheduled it better. Or, even better, gone to The Houston Galleria and had a luxe shopping date à la Rachael Kirkconnell on Matt James’ season of The Bachelor. If a city is going to pay that much money to a show, it should showcase what makes the city standout instead of hosting dates at very basic sites. Maybe that’s a lesson the city will learn next time.
