‘The Masked Dancer’: Which Judge Has the Highest Net Worth?
Initially a recurring segment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as a spoof of The Masked Singer, reality dancing competition series The Masked Dancer follows a similar format where the audience and viewers can guess the concealed celebrities’ identities before they “take it off.” Other than Ken Jeong, the series introduces three new judges, Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, and Ashley Tisdale. Who has the highest net worth?
Brian Austin Green’s net worth
Born in California, Brian Austin Green made his television debut at the age of 13 in a 1986 episode of The New Leave It To Beaver before landing a recurring role as Brian Cunningham in the soap opera Knots Landing (1986-1989).
Following his three-season stint, Green rose to fame as main character David Silver in Beverly Hills, 90210 (1999-2000) and co-produced 40 episodes.
In 2004, he began dating actor Megan Fox, and the two had an up-and-down relationship that involved several breakups until a seemingly permanent split in 2020.
The couple shares three kids, and he has another son from a previous relationship. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the actor has an estimated net worth of $8 million.
Ashley Tisdale’s net worth
Originally from New Jersey, Ashley Tisdale started her career in theater and toured with Broadway plays before singing for then-President Bill Clinton at the age of 12.
Tisdale and her family then relocated to Los Angeles, where she eventually broke through with her role as Maddie Fitzpatrick in Disney Channel’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody (2005-2008) and Sharpay Evans in hit 2006 film High School Musical.
She also ventured into music, releasing two albums that garnered mixed reviews. In 2014, Tisdale married musician, Christopher French. The couple is currently pregnant.
Celebrity Net Worth has the Carol’s Second Act actor listed at an estimated net worth of $14 million.
Ken Jeong’s net worth
In college at Duke University, Ken Jeong debated pursuing acting as he regularly performed at open mic nights. However, he ultimately graduated with his M.D. and moved to LA, where he practiced medicine for nearly 10 years.
While practicing as a physician of internal medicine, Jeong continued performing at improv clubs, which led to him landing multiple television appearances.
The practicing doctor became a household name with his performance as Dr. Kuni in the 2007 romantic comedy, Knocked Up. Jeong has since appeared in numerous more movies and television shows and has begun making his name in the game show circuit.
Jeong is married to Tran Ho, and they have twin daughters together. The comedian has an estimated net worth of $14 million.
Paula Abdul’s net worth
At 18-years-old, award-winning entertainer Paula Abdul got her start as a LA Lakers cheerleader. She went on to become the head choreographer where the famed music group The Jacksons discovered her.
Abdul then put her name on the map by choreographing music videos for Janet Jackson and scenes in several productions such as Tom Hanks-led Big (1988) and The Tracey Ullman Show, which earned her a Primetime Emmy Award twice.
She eventually became a recording artist, and her first album, 1988’s Forever Your Girl, set a record for the most number-one hits from a debut album. Additionally, her 1991 smash “Opposites Attract” won a Grammy Award for Best Music Video.
Since leaving the music industry, Abdul starred as an original judge on the singing reality competition series American Idol and has appeared as a panelist on several other shows.
While the choreographer has been married twice, she’s currently single and doesn’t have any children. Abdul has an estimated net worth of $30 million, making her the highest-paid judge on The Masked Dancer.
