We all know the easiest way to get your followers up on the 'gram is to hit up a reality television show. 

Contestants on the Bachelor have been known to bathe in this added bonus of their 15 minutes of fame. 

However, according to the Daily Mail Channel 10 bosses have had enough of contestants launching their influencer careers off the back of the show. 

The publication reveals that in order to be given a spot on the show, the cast agreed to a clause in their contracts: none of them are allowed to share sponsored posts until three months after the season finale airs.

Unfortunately this will mean that they will not be able to profit from their new found fame until the end of 2019 or beginning of 2020.  

Three months is a long time, especially when it's over Christmas. The current contestants better start loading up the 'gram with plenty of selfies to keep their engagement up. Because nek minute The Bachelorette will be the shiny new toy the public will eat up. Plus lets not forget about the old favourite Married At First Sight and Love Island. 

That's a lot of reality stars to keep up with.
