HGTV Celebrity Show Hosts: Who Has the Highest Net Worth?
HGTV show hosts may have different styles, but there’s one thing they all have in common: money. Lots of money.
The network that first went on the air in 1994 has certainly grown since then. Who would have thought that programming catered to home improvement, renovations, and house hunting would resonate so well with fans? As of February 2015, about 82% of households with television had access to HGTV. It’s the third most watch cable network in the United States.
Over time, HGTV has become a springboard for launching celebrity careers for renovation and design experts. Their popularity extends beyond those half hour segments… in fact, some have launched product lines, or in some cases, entire retail empires. And they’ve made a lot of money in the process.
Not every HGTV show host becomes a mega millionaire – but a lot of them do. Ahead, check out the richest HGTV stars ranked from lowest to highest.
