The Wall Street Journal reports that Buerge has filed for Chapter 7 level bankruptcy. He reportedly has $9.3 million in liabilities, with only $2.3 million in assets.

Buerge was briefly engaged to bachelorette Helene Eksterowicz. They had ended their engagement only weeks after the show stopped taping. The Associated Press reported that the couple had broken up in a New Jersey Starbucks.

The papers filed in Kansas City indicate that Buerge, who was president of First National Bank, and his wife Angie, a recruiter at Ozarks Tech Community College, made $17,216 a month. The former Bachelor also owns a grand piano bought for $15,000, a diamond wedding ring, and a gold pocket.

Looks like being on The Bachelor doesn’t set you up for life!

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at FabulousBuzz.com. Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
