Here’s What Your Favorite HGTV Stars Really Earn
Ever wonder exactly how how much your favorite HGTV stars make? What Chip and Joanna Gaines really pull in from reviving a Waco home? Or exactly how much Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott can buy and sell? Well, E! News recently broke down the numbers behind HGTV’s biggest stars—and they’re staggering.
Reality television and its home design shows may not be entirely real. The money made by reality TV’s stars, however, sure is. A combination of their TV shows, spinoffs (sometimes multiple), product lines, and book deals have helped these HGTV stars amass their own empires. Here are the numbers, by show.
The Scott brothers achieve top ranking. The duo’s collective worth is estimated to be between $5-10 million. With not one, but six spinoffs, two book deals, and nearly 2 million viewers since the duo hit the airwaves in 2011 it’s not hard to see how.
Love It Or List It
The bickering agent-reno expert duo at the heart of this show take second place. That’s right David and Hillary are said to have taken in a collective $7 million. That’s owed to one book deal, four spinoffs, and 1.4 million viewers.
Fixer Upper is actually HGTV’s most watched show with approximately 4.3 million viewers. That said, Chip and Joanna Gaines’ HGTV fortune comes in at #3 on the list. The Waco-based couple has a reported net worth of $5 million dollars. Though with a new spinoff, a high-profile product line, and a gaggle of adoring fans on Instagram (Joanna has 4.6 million, Chip has 2.2 million) they are primed to see some Texas-sized gains (no pun intended).
This relatively new HGTV show has quickly made host Nicole Curtis a major player in the universe of home renovation stars. A book deal and a spinoff have helped Curtis collect an estimated $5 million net worth.
Flip or Flop
Rounding out the list are Tarek and Christina El Moussa of Flip or Flop. With one book deal, five spinoffs, and 2.9 million viewers they have a net worth of $4 million.
