‘Siesta Key’: Which MTV Cast Member is the Richest?
MTV’s Siesta Key is back for season 4, and fans can’t wait to see their favorites return to the gossip and drama that’s unfolded in prior seasons. Juliette Porter, Kelsey Owens, Madisson Hausburg, Amanda Miller, Chloe Trautman, and plenty others from seasons past will come back for the new season. So, which Siesta Key cast member has the highest net worth? Here’s what we know about their wealth.
How much is the ‘Siesta Key’ cast worth? Who’s the richest?
It’s no secret the Siesta Key cast has serious money all around. From days out on the yacht to lavish parties, fans have seen the young adults living it up big time. And Alex Kompothecras’ wealth is certainly head-turning. He and his family showed off their incredible parties and beautiful properties in plenty of episodes from the first two seasons.
So, is Alex the richest of his friends? According to The Things, he may have some competition. Alex himself has an estimated net worth of around $2 million — but he’s not alone. Kelsey amassed a ton of money thanks to her time on the show and her modeling career, and she also has an estimated net worth of $2 million.
The Things continues down the list and notes Madisson’s net worth stands around $600,000, Garrett Miller’s net worth is around $500,000, Juliette’s net worth is around $400,000, and Brandon Gomes’ and Chloe’s is around $200,000.
So, who is richer — Alex, or Juliette’s newer boyfriend, Sam Logan? According to Juliette, Sam’s family has even more money than Alex’s. It’s likely Sam’s family has over $100 million thanks to Sam’s mother inheriting part of the Scripps Network.
Alex Kompothecras’ wealthy father helped kickstart the show
The Siesta Key cast might not even have a show without Alex and his wealthy father. Alex’s father, Gary Kompothecras, created 1-800-ASK-GARY. The company assists those who are in need of medical help after automobile accidents.
“For over a decade, more than 200,000 people have called 1-800-ASK-GARY for their auto accident and injury needs,” the website for the company reads. “1-800-Ask-Gary is a free 24/7 auto accident and injury helpline.”
It seems Gary’s done quite well, as he was able to fund the pilot episode of Siesta Key out of pocket. He reportedly paid the network $140,000 for Alex and his friends to get started, and Alex later pitched the idea to MTV. MTV ran with it and spent $4 million on the first season. And, as we know, it was a hit, though Alex is no longer a part of the series.
How much does the cast of ‘Siesta Key’ make per season?
So, how much does the Siesta Key cast make per season of the show? While MTV hasn’t come forward with any numbers directly, users on Reddit have an idea. According to a Reddit user, the cast makes $20,000 per episode. The user also included that Juliette make $400,000 per year. If this is the case, then it’s likely the cast’s net worths have grown significantly over time and they’re richer than the numbers currently listed.
We can’t forget that the show was just the beginning for the careers of a few of these young professionals. In addition to their own business ventures, many of them have become quite famous on Instagram. CNBC notes influencers who have over 1 million followers can make over $250,000 per Instagram post if they represent a brand. Juliette currently has 739,000 followers.
