Here's How Much Rachel Lindsay Is Really Worth

Texas gal Rachel Lindsay, the first black woman to star as the lead on The Bachelorette, has broken her silence on the Black Live Matters movement. The accomplished lawyer and co-host of the Higher Learning podcast penned a personal essay about the protests following the death of George Floyd, a black man killed while being detained by Minneapolis police in May 2020. Lindsay expressed how deeply the issue of civil rights and equity hits home for her.  

"I have been sitting back and watching all the events that are unfolding in our country...," she said, per Good Morning America. "But there is one thought that I keep going back to ... why is everyone just now waking up to the injustices against black people that have been running rampant in our society for centuries?" 

Lindsay revealed the role race plays in her daily life and sparked conversations about representation and racism. As an attorney, podcast host, and reality TV show star on one of TV's biggest franchises, Lindsay's talents wield a lot of influence. Let's take a closer look at her sizable success.  

Rachel Lindsay made more from TV

When Rachel Lindsay starred on The Bachelorette, she was already an independent woman with a successful career outside of reality TV. According to her profile on Cooper & Scully LLC, a Texas-based law firm, Lindsay "represents clients in a broad variety of litigation matters in state and federal court including: local government law, business litigation, personal injury, employment, and insurance."

In addition to her legal talents, Lindsay's reality TV debut in 2017 was likely profitable in more ways than one. According to Trending Celebs Now, Lindsay was worth in the ballpark of $100,000 to $1 million in 2018, but has supposedly increased her estimated net worth to anywhere between $1 million to $5 million. She has capitalized on her fame to plug Vaseline and other products, but the Bachelor Nation star has made it clear that she doesn't want to profit off a franchise that doesn't align with her values. 

"You never want to bite the hand that feeds you, but you also do not want to be aiding and abetting problematic behavior," she said in a June 2020 blog post. "I am affiliated with this franchise and to be silent on some matters is to still be complicit with these cycles of detrimental conduct ... if changes are not made on the inside and outside of the franchise, I will dissociate myself from it." She added, "The whole franchise needs a diversity makeover."
