Reality television has a way of making some relatively ordinary people into world famous celebrities, but when I say that this list looks at “popular” stars, I don’t necessarily mean they’re well-liked. To be honest, for reality TV to be the train wreck worth watching, the stars have to cook up some serious dramatics, and let’s face it, the worse they behave, sometimes the more dough they rake in! Let’s have a look at some popular reality TV stars and just how much the internet says they’re worth:
8. Kate Gosselin
Estimated Net Worth: $200,000. Kate Gosselin went from being loved as America watched on sympathetically during her then-husband’s cheating scandal, to being one of the most hated TV moms for her erratic behavior. On the plus side, Celebrity Net Worth estimates Gosselin net worth at only $200,000, which seems particularly low considering the length of time she’s been on TV and all of her undertakings. After the change of Jon & Kate Plus 8 to Kate Plus 8, Gosselin has also appeared on Dancing With the Stars (for which he apparently earned $500,000) and Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump. She has also published four books; the first two debuted at #5 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. I guess raising eight kids is draining her funds…or maybe it’s her strange (and expensive) ability to age backwards.
