‘Vanderpump Rules’: There is a New Richest Member of the Cast and it’s Not Jax Taylor

The cast of Vanderpump Rules is a strange mix of wealth and normalcy. On the one hand, they are all on reality television and are going on expensive vacations at the drop of a hat. On the other hand, they all work at SUR as servers and like to pretend like they are surviving on server salaries.

So which is it? Is the cast actually living the hospitality life or are they all rolling in the dough?

Katie Maloney

Katie Maloney-Schwartz is known for stirring the pot on the show. Unfortunately, it has only earned her a net worth of $30,000.

Kristen Doute

No longer a member of the SUR staff, Doute makes $15,000 an episode, according to Riot Housewives. She also has her clothing line, James Mae, and has been featured in a number of films like Blood on Canvas and 23 Minutes to Sunrise. She is worth $250,000.

Stassi Schroeder

Schroeder is one of the OG’s of Vanderpump Rules. Though she has definitely chilled out in later seasons, she never fails to bring the drama. Schroeder may no longer work at SUR, but she certainly is still a main cast member. She also hosts a podcast called “Straight Up with Stassi” and released her book, “Next Level Basic” earlier this year.

According to Riot Housewives, Shroeder makes $15,000 per episode of the show, which brings her net worth to $300,000.

Jax Taylor

Taylor used to be the highest earning member of the Vanderpump Rules cast, but has now been surpassed. He does, however, make the most per episode.

Taylor racks in $25,000 per episode and is currently worth $500,000.

It was recently reported that Taylor is $80,000 in tax debt, but according to sources close to the star, the debt has been paid off.

Ariana Madix

Madix may not seem like she has a high net worth based on her supporting role on the show, but the Florida native is actually worth $1 million. In addition to being on Vanderpump Rules, she played Ruby on the TV series Tilt-A-World in 2011. From 2009 to 2015, she also appeared on CollegeHumor Originals. She has also been in movies, including Working It Out, Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader, Dirty Dealing 3D, and Dead End.

Tom Schwartz

Schwartz is definitely a character that you know has to have money. If he didn’t, he and Tom Sandoval would never have been able to afford to partner with Lisa Vanderpump in opening TomTom.

Previously, Tom Schwartz’s net worth was listed as $25,000 but since the opening of TomTom, it has skyrocketed to $2 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Sandoval takes money seriously. In 2016, he sued because he felt like he wasn’t being paid enough to be on the show. The court filings reported that the star only made about $38,000 total for being on Vanderpump Rules at the time.

Now, he makes $15,000 per episode.

Before opening TomTom, his net worth was listed at $400,000 but has now skyrocketed to $2 million.
