Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth have been traveling the world over since getting engaged on national television, and while many fans are wondering how these two are managing to live without working, a new report delivers some answers to that question. According to Life & Style Magazine, the couple has struck it rich with their newfound fame, and are said to be worth a solid $3 million.
“Together, they’re worth $3 million. For each product they’re Instagramming or tweeting, they could net $15,000 per post. They could fetch up to $500,000 each. I see them growing their profit margin an additional 50 percent. They could easily pocket $1 million from the network for the wedding alone,” explained branding expert David Johnson.
Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth have seemingly been enjoying each other’s company since they wrapped The Bachelorette, keeping their fans updated by way of social media. As popular figures with strong social media followings, it makes business sense for Bristowe and Booth to get paid for their posts. In addition to bringing in money through endorsements, the pair also likely get paid for some of the appearances they have been making over the past few weeks.
Newly-engaged Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth were recently sighted in New York City for Fashion Week. While the couple may not have been paid to attend runway shows, they were accompanied by Andi Dorfman and Catherine Giudici, which seemed like it could have been a planned, publicity-driven ABC meet-up. However, at this point it is all speculation, as no official word has surfaced to reveal whether or not the women filmed anything in the city, or if their appearance at the show was paid for. There were plenty of photos to be had, however.
The Bachelorette pair are not done traveling just yet. According to People Magazine, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth have at least one more stop to make before settling down.
“The former dance instructor and Booth, who is a personal trainer, have spent time in Bristowe’s hometown of Vancouver, Canada, since going public with their engagement. Next, the couple plans on visiting Nashville, where Booth is from, before deciding where they want to settle down.”
Shawn is originally from Connecticut, hence his seemingly-healthy New England obsession with Dunkin’ Donuts. Although Kaitlyn lives in Canada, it’s very possible she will move somewhere in the U.S. with Shawn.
Do you think Kaitlyn and Shawn will last? Do you think ABC will pay to have their wedding televised? And if so, would you tune in?
