12. Tyler Christopher — $7 Million
Much like the lavish lifestyle that his General Hospital (GH) character, Nikolas Cassadine, enjoys, Tyler Christopher sits on an estimated value of $7 million. Between his decades-long career with GH and his stint at DOOL, Christopher is known for his acting talents, although his high-profile romantic exploits with the likes of Eva Longoria and Vanessa Marcil haven’t hurt. Alas, he’s also become notorious in recent years for his hard-partying lifestyle, which he says nearly ended his life. As the star focuses on his health, many daytime fans are hoping Christopher is capable of a comeback.
