You’d be amazed at how much money you can make helping other people win money of their own. And if you’re assuming that Pat Sajak, Alex Trebeck, and Bob Barker would be the obvious names at the top of this list, then you’d be totally wrong. They did manage to make the list, but they’re way down at the bottom. There are a handful of other game show hosts that are worth wild amounts of wealth. Who? Well, not quite making the list is Marc Summers at $8 million, Chuck Woolery at $15 million, Tom Bergeron at $16 million, Ben Stein at $20 million, Bob Eubanks at $25 million, Meredith Vieira at $40 million, Jeff Probst at $40 million, Howie Mandel at $40 million, and Anne Robinson at $45 million. Check out below for the lucky ones who did make the list of the 11 richest game show hosts.
11. Pat Sajak
Estimated Net Worth: $55 million. Wheel of Fortune has certainly brought a fortune to its host. Pat Sajak, who got the coveted job because of his quirky sense of humor, hosted the popular game show with co-host and letter-revealer Vanna White from the time the show first launched its syndicated version back in 1983. Despite his long-time on-screen gameshow hosting run and the fact that his name is one of a few that is basically synonymous with the television genre, he just barely makes it onto this list by grabbing the final spot. But don’t cry for Sajak, he’s doing just fine with his estimated net worth of $45 million.
