Peter Weber’s Net Worth Is Mainly Thanks to Delta (Not ‘The Bachelor’)
Peter Weber still lives with his parents after starring on season 24 of The Bachelor. Although he wants to move to either L.A. or NYC, we couldn’t help but wonder if it’s actually in the cards for the 28-year-old pilot. As in, can he afford it? We were surprised to learn the answer is yes.
Keep reading for all the details on Peter Weber’s net worth.
1. What is Peter Weber net worth?
Unfortunately, we don’t have an exact number, since Weber’s financial records aren’t 100 percent available to the public. However, we estimate the pilot is worth anywhere between $500,000 and $750,000. This calculation is based on his career as a pilot, his role on The Bachelor and his current living situation at his parents’ house in Westlake Village, California.
2. What's his salary?
Prior to starring on The Bachelor, Weber worked as a commercial pilot for Delta Air Lines, which has an average base pay of $185,000, according to CNN. This means Weber should have accumulated around $550,000 (pre-tax) over the past three years. These funds likely went straight into his pocket, since he hasn’t paid rent, like, ever.
3. Did he get paid for 'The Bachelor'?
Of course, but we don’t know how much. Back in 2011, famed TV blogger Reality Steve revealed that Bachelor/Bachelorette leads make around $100,000 per season, though we wouldn’t be surprised if that number has increased over time.
In fact, Amy Kaufman revealed in her 2018 book Bachelor Nation that it’s “incredibly rare for someone to make less than six figures.” She also confirmed that some stars make more than others—like Emily Maynard, who reportedly received $250,000 for The Bachelorette. Guess Weber didn’t walk away from The Bachelor empty handed after all.
4. Does he make money from social media?
Most likely. Now that The Bachelor is over, we wouldn’t be surprised if sponsored posts become a regular occurrence on Weber’s Instagram page. On the lower tier, this can range from anywhere between $1,000 to $50,000, depending on the deal. Cha-ching!
