Do loser contestants on reality shows get paid anything at all?

Many of these shows involve filming for many months. I'd imagine that someone on a "16-week job interview" like The Apprentice is losing quite a bit of income if not working for 4 months.
So apart from the winner who usually gets the big bucks, do the other contestants get paid anything for being on the shows?
