Which ‘MTV’ Star Has the Highest Net Worth?
From Teen Mom to Jersey Shore, MTV has seen no shortage of successful television shows. But through the years, some of these stars have gone on to make millions through other business ventures such as book deals, appearances, and new careers. But which MTV star has amassed the highest net worth of them all?
8. Maci Bookout of ‘Teen Mom’
Estimated net worth: $1.5 million
Maci Bookout first got her start on 16 and Pregnant and was chosen as one of the originals in the Teen Mom cast. She has been on MTV for nearly a decade and has since grown her net worth into the millions. Bookout has also released two books since her time on the show. She is currently married to motocross racer Taylor McKinney. Reports suggest she’s worth around $1.5 million.
7. Kristin Cavallari of ‘Laguna Beach’ and ‘The Hills’
Estimated net worth: $3.5 million
Kristin Cavallari got her start as Lauren Conrad’s nemesis on Laguna Beach. Since then, she’s also appeared on the spinoff show The Hills. Today, Cavallari is worth around $3.5 million and lives in Tennessee with her husband, Jay Cutler, a retired NFL player. She runs the accessories and home goods line Uncommon James and has a reality show on E! Network called Very Cavallari.
6. Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi of ‘Jersey Shore’
Estimated net worth: $4 million
Nicole Polizzi is best known as being the meatball on Jersey Shore, but she has since cleaned up her act (sort of). She has a clothing and accessories line and has reappeared on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Her business endeavors and the show’s success have helped her net worth increase to around $4 million. She currently lives in New Jersey and just opened up her first store front in Madison, New Jersey.
5. Farrah Abraham of ‘Teen Mom’
Estimated net worth: $6 million
Farrah Abraham has had a rocky relationship with MTV, but she’s the wealthiest Teen Mom star of the bunch. However, her decisions to pursue adult films and her bad attitude on the show didn’t sit well with MTV. Abraham is no longer filming with the network. But her Teen Mom fame, along with her adult business decisions, have made her worth around $6 million.
4. Brody Jenner of ‘The Hills’
Estimated net worth: $10 million
Brody Jenner is best known for his role as Lauren Conrad’s love interest on The Hills. But he’s also the son of Bruce Jenner and the half-brother of Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Growing up surrounded by fame, Jenner was able to get out on his own and has found himself worth around $10 million. He married Kaitlynn Carter in 2018.
3. Paul ‘DJ Pauly D’ DelVecchio of ‘Jersey Shore’
Estimated net worth: $20 million
DJ Pauly D is one of the most loved Jersey Shore cast members. But along with filming, he’s had a very successful career as a DJ. Pauly D reportedly charges thousands for performances, and it can be more depending on the venue. He lives in Las Vegas but still returns to his Jersey home to film with his housemates. He’s by far the richest cast member, worth around $20 million.
2. Lauren Conrad of ‘Laguna Beach’ and ‘The Hills’
Estimated net worth: $25 million
Lauren Conrad was the star of both Laguna Beach and The Hills. Today, she’s happily married and runs a very successful clothing and accessories line. Conrad made plenty of money on the hills, but it’s the role as business woman she took on after the show that has made her so wealthy. She’s one of MTV’s most successful stars.
1. Nick Cannon of ‘Wild ‘N Out’
Estimated net worth: $50 million
Some forget that Nick Cannon hosts the popular MTV show Wild ‘N Out, but that’s only because he’s acted in so many other shows and films in his career. All of this success has given him a net worth of around $50 million, far greater than any of MTV’s other stars. He briefly married Mariah Carey, and the two share two children together. There is no sign of Cannon’s MTV career slowing down.
