40. Andromeda Dunker
You might not recognize her face, but if you're a fan of HGTV, then you've definitely heard Andromeda Dunker's voice. Since 2009, she's been the off-screen narrator for House Hunters, a role that had once belong to Suzanne Whang--another star on this list. Although the faces and houses change from episode to episode, Dunker's voice remains the same. However, recently there have been rumors that the show is ditching it's longtime narrator for a different format. Say it ain't so!
However, even if she does eventually part ways with House Hunters, we have a feeling she'll do just fine. It's estimated that she's got a net worth of at least $250,000 dollars. That's not as much as some people on the list, and it probably has to do with the fact that she doesn't appear on camera. That being said, $250k is nothing to laugh at, and we're sure her vocal talents will help her land another amazing job.
39. Todd Talbot
Todd Talbot has been onscreen since the early 2000s, but he really rose to fame when he became one of two co-hosts on the HGTV series Love It or List It Vancouver--also known as Love It or List It Too here in the United States. As with the original series, Love It or List It Vancouver is all about homeowners making the sometimes excrutiating decision of whether their current house is the right place for them.
Because of all of his time in front of the camera, Talbot has managed to amass a net worth of a respectable $700,000. Some of that money comes from his acting gigs (like his role in a '90s teen soap opera with a young Ryan Reynolds!), but he's also busy at work behind the scenes making bank. Talbot has been investing in properties since a young age, and it's clear that all those investments have paid off!
38. Josh Temple
Josh is an HGTV veteran that made our list with a nice net worth of $1 million! He’s been the host of several successful HGTV shows like House Crashers and Flipping the Block, where he talks about the hard work it takes to flip a house into a home. Temple clearly has no problem crashing anything and everything, as House Crashers was a spin-off of an earlier show he did for the channel, Yard Crashers.
Besides starring in a few HGTV shows, Josh also appeared in several episodes of WIll and Grace, as well as Curb Your Enthusiasm. So besides being a successful contractor, you could also say he's an actor! This guy can clearly do it all, so it's no wonder he's rolling in the dough. He's done so much that a $1 million dollar net worth almost seems low, but we're sure that he's not complaining in the slightest!
37. Casey Noble
Even before she was famous, Casey Noble was already a little famous. She's married to former NFL linebacker Clay Matthews. However, despite his preexisting notoriety and wealth, Noble has managed to carve out a place for herself all on her own. She began her HGTV career as a contestant on season 5 of the reality show Design Star. She might not have won the competition, but that hasn't stopped her popularity and wealth from rising.
Her big break finally came when she was enlisted to host HGTV's show Design on a Dime. While the show features the standard "redesign a room in a home" format, there's a twist--the designers involved only have one thousand dollars to work with. While the designers on the show might be working with a bare bones budget, in her real life, Noble has a bit more cash to work with. She currently has a net worth of $1 million dollars.
36. Mina Starsiak
Mina Starsiak is not the most seasoned veteran of the HGTV world--she only began her series in 2016. But since then, her popularity has been going up, up, up. Along with her mother, Karen E. Laine, Starsiak stars as co-host of the series Good Bones. In it, the two women bring their renovation expertise that they gained while flipping houses in Indianapolis. The show is set to premiere its sixth season in 2021.
Currently, Starsiak has a net worth of $1.4 million, and while that might not be as big as some names on this list, you have to remember she's only had a TV career for a few years. She's doing just fine, all things considered. In addition to her hosting duties with her mother, the two have also recently opened a home furnishings store called Two Chicks District Co. Season five of Good Bones was all about their experience renovating the business space.
35. Matt Blashaw
Matt Blashaw has lived and breathed construction since he was just a teenager. He might have a decade of being on TV, but before that he had a decade in the industry without the cameras rolling. He's probably most famous for his HGTV series Professional Grade, where homeowners try to fool professionals with their high-quality, low-budget renovations. However, you can also find him on shows like Money Hunters, Deconstruction, and Project Xtreme.
These days, his net worth is around $1.5 million dollars, which is probably thanks to both his TV career and his many years of work in the business. These days, he's also a realtor and builder in Orange County, so if you're in the market for a home in the area, you might just find yourself working with the star of Professional Grade!
34. Christopher Lowell
Christopher Lowell has been in the home improvement scene for decades, with his first on-screen gig being Interior Motives with Christopher Lowell. However, his real claim to fame came a few years later in 1999 when he began hosting the HGTV series The Christoper Lowell Show. You know you've arrived when your name is in the title of the show. But you also know you've arrived when you're filthy rich, and Lowell has done both!
Currently, Lowell's net worth sits at an impressive $1.5 million dollars. These days, you're more likely to find him working on a book rather than starring on a home improvement television show, but he hasn't given that life up the design life entirely, either. Lowell recently partnered with Office Depot to create a line of desks and accessories for the office. Here's hoping we see him back on the TV soon!
33. Sabrina Soto
If you’re an HGTV junkie like us, you’ve definitely seen Sabrina a time or two at least! She’s one of the networks prime time designers, and she took her time on TV and launched a very successful brand! She’s definitely become a guru in all things design, and that’s how she made our list with a stunning $2 Million! She may be at the top now, but her rise to fame has been an interesting one, to say the least.
Sabrina found her passion for interior design along with her mother, who owned her own decorating company when Soto was a child. Despite dreams of becoming a professional baker, she began work for HGTV after responding to a Craigslist ad they had posted in 2006. While her levels of fame may have changed, her approach to decor hasn't. Her design work prominently finds ways to mix expensive luxury pieces with affordable elements to make a cozy and unique home.
32. David Bromstad
David Bromstad hit it big when he took home the million-dollar grand prize from season 1 of HGTV’s Design Star. He later went on to host his own show called My Lottery Dream Home helping millionaires, like him, find their first new home after winning big! Some reality show stars are just a flash in the pan--here today, gone tomorrow. But things just keep looking up for Bromstad. He’s now worth over $2 Million.
David originally wanted to be a Disney animator, not an interior designer. However, he was unfortunately laid off from Disney, but that might have been a blessing in disguise. That's when he picked up interior design and started his own company, Bromstad Studios, creating fantasy bedrooms for kids! By 2007, he had his own HGTV show, and his fame has led to several endorsement deals from home goods and decorating companies.
31. Alana LeBlanc
Don't worry, you're not seeing double. It's just Alana LeBlanc and her twin sister, Lex. The two are co-hosts of HGTV's series Listed Sister, which is probably the punniest name we've seen on the channel. On the show, Anna and her twin help homeowners with the process of renovating and selling their homes. It's pretty standard HGTV fare, which just goes to show how much her personality and expertise contribute to the success of the show.
LeBlanc has managed to amass a net worth of almost $2 million dollars at this point. However, she's much more than just a successful TV show host--she's also involved in real estate and the business world. Like a lot of the wealthiest HGTV stars, LeBlanc proves that you've got to diversify and try new things if you want to bring in the big bucks. It seems to be working out just fine for her!
30. Suzanne Whang
Suzanne Whang tragically passed away in 2019 after a thirteen-year battle with cancer. However, her fans will forever and always remember her as the original host of the wildly popular show House Hunters--a role that she performed for almost a decade! The show (which has now been on air for two decades) follows potential home buyers as they weigh the pros and cons of the houses they're considering buying, and for nine years, Whang was right in the middle of the action narrating the whole thing.
At the time of her death, her net worth was estimated to be almost $2 million dollars, but all that money didn't come from House Hunters alone. Whang had roles on TV dating back to 1990, including shows like General Hospital, Arrested Development, and Two and a Half Men. It may come as a surprise, but Whang even tried her hand at comedy in the early 2000s! Her life may have been tragically short, but she accomplished so much in her time.
29. Carol Duvall
Carol Duvall is an HGTV legend who began her career with the channel all the way back in 1994. That was the premiere year for The Carol Duvall Show, an educational series where Duvall helped viewers master all sorts of techniques related to arts and crafts. When you think of HGTV, you probably think of house flipping shows, but Duvall proved that she could pull in the ratings without pulling out a sledgehammer!
However, The Carol Duvall Show was far from the only thing this multi-talented lady did to amass a net worth of $2 million dollars. She had a variety of roles in television both in front of and behind the camera dating back all the way to 1951, when she was hired to create a weekly live TV show in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She's also published several books about--you guessed it--arts and crafts.
28. Vern Yip
Vern is Design Star judge that has continued his design career both on HGTV and other networks! Like another HGTV star on this list, Yip's original claim to TV fame was on the classic TLC makeover show, Trading Spaces. He had regular appearances on the show through season four. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Vern has enjoyed a successful career as one of the industries most beloved designers and hosts, earning him a solid $3 Million.
After his time on Design Star, Vern hosted an HGTV special called Urban Oasis where he designed a Chicago loft that was given away to a lucky winner! His TV appearances have gotten rarer as the years go on, but with a net worth that high, who can blame him? If you need more Vern in your life, he has been known to make appearances on Live with Kelly and Ryan. Yip is married to Craig Koch, and they have two children, a son and a daughter, together.
27. Jillian Harris
Jillian isn't a newbie when it comes to being on TV. In fact, before starring as the other half of Love It or List It Vancouver, she was on The Bachelorette. She might have only been second runner up on her season, but it clearly did not affect her rise to stardom. That was just the first of many TV appearances for Harris. She may be a pro interior designer, but it's clear she knows how to rule the reality show world, too!
Since partnering with HGTV, Jillian has launched several endeavors, earning her a substantial $3 million. These endeavors included everything from a line of interior design products to creating and starring in her own documentary. Oh, and did we mention her vegan cookbook? Throw that in there, too. In 2016, Harris even won a Leo Award for Best Host in an Information or Lifestyle Series for her time on Love It or List It Vancouver!
26. Alison Victoria
Alison Victoria started her life in interior design at only 10 years old while redesigning her parent’s basement! It’s no doubt that she earned her spot on our list, because she’s been working hard ever since. Victoria first appeared on a 2013 HGTV special, The Ultimate Crash: House, Bath, Kitchen and Yard, where she worked as a designer. While she's made several appearances on the channel, a lot of her work has been featured on the DIY network, which is HGTV's sister channel.
No matter where she appears, Victoria has managed to monetize her skills. It's estimated that she has a net worth of over $3 million these days. In addition to her work on TV, she's also a bit of a businesswoman. She founded her own design company, Alison Victoria Interiors, and she's even got her own luxury line of furniture, known as the Alison Victoria collection. Her tastes definitely tend toward the expensive, so it's no wonder she's working with all sorts of high-end clients!
25. Ashley Williams
Tarek El Moussa and Christina Anstead may be the OG stars of the Flip or Flop franchise, but the spin offs that the original show spawned have brought even more construction and design stars into the fold--including Ashley Williams. Along with her husband, Andy, Ashley is the star of Flip or Flop Fort Worth, which is much more fun to watch than it is to say! It's inspiring to see this couple go from military veterans to real estate moguls to TV stars!
Currently, Williams has an estimated net worth of more than $3 million dollars. While her time on TV definitely contributed to this huge amount, Williams and her husband continue their real estate business, which certainly can't hurt their bottom line. She hasn't been seen much on TV since her Flip or Flop spin off, but we're sure she's got something new and exciting in the works for all her fans!
24. Clive Pearse
A lot of HGTV stars come from Canada--we guess they're just better at interior design up there. But not Clive Pearse! He was born in jolly old England, making him one of the few stars on the channel from across the pond. His big break came when he was cast as one of the hosts of Designed to Sell, a show where contractors have a mere $2000 to improve a home that's struggling to sell.
However, this is by far the only entry on Pearse's resume. He's appeared on other HGTV shows including Design Star, Making of an HGTV Design Star, and Designed Home Giveaway. Most interestingly, he lent his voice in the movie Shrek. These days, he's stepped away from the limelight a bit, and when you consider how much he's already worth, we don't blame him--his net worth is an estimated $3 million dollars!
23. Scott McGillivray
Scott McGillivray lived his show Income Property in real life! In the show, Scott helped people renovate income properties they owned in order to have them looking their best--and their most profitable. And it turns out that he really knows what he's talking about! He personally started flipping homes into rental properties at only 25 years old. If there's anyone qualified to host a show about making the most money out of your property, it's McGillivray!
Scott took his experience and started helping others, making him worth millions. $4 million, to be exact. And while some of that money came from Income Property, it's by no means the only way he made his millions. He's also hosted a slew of other HGTV shows, including Moving the McGillivrays, Buyers Bootcamp with Scott McGillivray, and Scott's Vacation House Rules. And did we mention he's also the CEO of his own entertainment company?
22. Courtney & Robert Novogratz
HGTV just can't seem to get enough of couples, and one of the wealthiest to ever appear on the channel is Courtney and Robert Novogratz. Home by Novogratz, which premiered in 2011, followed the couple as they renovated homes, including those of celebrities like Wendy Williams. And they worked hard for their money, as Courtney revealed that they "acted as the contractors, architects, and designers" during the series, unlike some hosts who just act as the face of the show.
Currently, the couple has a net worth of $4 million dollars, but that hasn't all come from their HGTV fame. They've published three books so far, including one that helped inspire their television series. They've also been responsible for several product lines sold by major retailers. Considering that they have a whopping seven children, it sounds like they could use every bit of that $4 million! Here's hoping that the kids are just as talented as their parents.
21. Lisa LaPorta
Lisa LaPorta is an HGTV regular who has appeared on a whopping eleven shows on the channel! However, she's probaby most notable for her role as a designer on Designed to Sell. On the show, she worked hard to improve a home struggling on the housing market--all with a measly $2000 budget. Needless to say, she's great at making something out of nothing, and quickly became a fan favorite among viewers.
She proved that she's good with money on Designed to Sell, and that includes her personal finances, too. Currently, she has an estimated net worth of at least $4 million dollars. A lot of that is probably thanks to her many appearances on HGTV, but she's got more tricks up her sleeve than just that. LaPorta has also released a line of patio furniture and has even done a little work as an author for design magazines.
20. Genevieve Gorder
Genevieve is another HGTV veteran whose years in the industry have paid off. She’s made several appearances on television, but you may know her best as one of the judges of HGTV Design Star and her own show Dear Genevieve. However, she had plenty of interior design and TV experience long before she was starring on HGTV. It turns out that Gorder was also one of the original decorators for TLC's classic home makeover hit, Trading Spaces.
It’s no wonder she’s taking it easy now, because she’s worth over $5 Million. And we have to say that if anyone deserves a little R&R, it's her! These days, she spends her time in Manhattan with her daughter, Bebelle, and her husband, Christian Dunbar. It turns out that birds of a feather really do flock together, because Dunbar happens to be an interior designer himself! We're sure that the two have an impeccably designed home.
19. Erin and Ben Napier
Discovered on Instagram, down home couple Erin and Ben Napier are recent additions to the HGTV family. You better watch out, Chip and Joanna, because it looks like you've got some couple competition now! Their quick rise to fame earned them a net worth of $5 Million, but that doesn’t mean they’ve lost their down-to-earth charm! Their authenticity is an important part of their brand, and it's probably why fans feel so strongly about them.
You can watch this power couple on HGTV’s Home Town, where they help incoming residents find homes in their hometown of Laurel, Mississippi. Now on season 5, the show is a nice change of pace from other series on the channel where the hosts are hopping from town to town across the country. Who knew that moving to Laurel could be so popular? Apparently the Napiers did! Here's hoping they can make their hometown even more awesome.
18. Aubrey Marunde
The original HGTV series Flip or Flop has taken on a life of its own--we're currently on seven spin offs and counting! One of those is Flip or Flop Vegas, which stars realtor and designer Aubrey Marunde and her husband, Bristol. And unlike some of the Flip or Flop spin offs, Flip or Flop Vegas has had a multi-season run. Some even say the couple have unseated now-divorced Christina Anstead and Tarek El Moussa as the best FoF couple!
Aubrey has managed to build a net worth of $5 million, and that doesn't even factor in her husband's net worth, which is plenty high itself. Needless to say, this couple is rolling the dough! And it seems like the property business is a family affair for Aubrey. She grew up watching and learning from her father who was a contractor himself.
17. Bristol Marunde
Since 2017, Bristol Marunde has acted as co-host on Flip or Flop Vegas with his wife, Aubrey Marunde. On the show, the two use their expertise in flipping homes to make TV magic in Sin City. So far, the show has been on the air for three seasons, and fans love the Marunde's ability to completely transform a house, as well as their great chemistry as husband and wife.
However, it's a little misleading to think of Bristol Marunde as just an HGTV host. In reality, he's probably more famous for his successful MMA career, which he still continues in the midst of all that house flipping. He's clearly and busy guy, and his bank account absolutely reflects all the hard work he puts in. Currently, his estimated net worth sits a very respectable $5 million dollars--and that's not including his wife's multi-million dollar net worth too!
16. Egypt Sherrod
Egypt Sherrod comes from a long line of real estate investors. She quickly discovered that the secret to long-term wealth was in real estate. She started flipping houses and eventually got her license. When she had the opportunity to have her own show on HGTV, Property Virgins, she finally felt like it was her time to shine, and she was right. In this hit HGTV show, she helps first-time buyers navigate the housing market.
She now has a net worth of over $6 million, but she's more than just a wealthy real estate mogul! Sherrod has been honored by organizations like the New York State Assembly and the NAACP for her humanitarian and community work. In addition to all that, she also has founded her own non-profit aimed at educating people on financial awareness. It's clear that she's earned her millions...and then some!
15. David Visentin
Being on TV was not on David’s radar, but after climbing the ladder as a successful real estate agent, it’s no shocker that HGTV called and asked him to audition for their new show Love It or List It. Turns out, he was destined to be a star, along with superstar designer and co-host Hilary Farr. In the series, Visentin tries to convince homeowners that they're better off selling their home and buying a new one, while Farr tries to get them to renovate what they've already got.
The show was originally released in 2008 and has been a hit and a staple of the channel ever since. It also provided a pretty hefty paycheck for Visentin! When you combine his HGTV fame with his lucrative real estate career, it's no wonder that he ended up being one of the wealthiest stars on the channel. Currently, Visentin is worth at least $6 million dollars.
14. Nicole Curtis
Nicole started out just like the rest of us, making minimum wage at a Banana Republic. Her hard work and house flips landed her a whopping $7 million net worth. She wants us all to know that getting there wasn’t easy, and before starring in her HGTV renovation show, Rehab Addict, life wasn’t easy! It turns out that TV life wasn't that easy either, though. Curtis took a two year hiatus after more than a decade in front of the camera.
It sounds like she made the right choice, though. Curtis told People magazine, "I was completely burned out. There was so much time in those ten years where I didn't get to enjoy it at all. I was stressed out." However, these days, she's back in business! Her new show, Rehab Addict Rescue premiered in early 2021. In it, she coaches families through the stressful and monumental process of renovating an old home.
13. Hilary Farr
Love It or List It co-host Hilary Farr was destined for show business as a budding actress. However, she found a new love that paid the bills--interior design! After living in and renovating a few houses, Hilary figured out that she not only had a knack for being on camera but also could design jaw-dropping spaces for even bigger paychecks. She’s now worth an estimated $8 million dollars. Something tells me that number is only going to get bigger in the future.
On her hit show, Farr is "pitted" against co-host David Visentin as they both try to pull homeowners in different directions. Visentin tries to convice owners that they should sell their current home and find a new one better suited to their needs, while Farr renovates their current home in an attempt to get them to stay. The original show has led to numerous spin-offs across the globe, and that's largely thanks to Farr.
12. Jennie Garth
Even if you've never seen her on HGTV, Jennie Garth probably looks familiar to you. That's because, before her time on the channel, she was most well known as Kelly Taylor on Beverly Hills 90210. This actress has done a little of everything, including hosting her own HGTV series, The Jennie Garth Project. The show followed her experience of gutting and renovating an old home in the Hollywood Hills.
These days, Garth has a net worth of over $8 million, but obviously not all of that came from her stint on HGTV. Since her time on Beverly Hills 90210, Garth has had steady work in TV, and she's even appeared in a few movies as well. During her successful career, she's also released a workout video and started her own podcast with fellow 90210 cast member Tori Spelling. Is there anything she can't do?
11. Carter Oosterhouse
For HGTV fans, you probably remember Carter Oosterhouse from his mid-2000s TV series on the channel, Carter Can, Red Hot & Green, and Million Dollar Rooms. Some people would feel lucky to have just one show on the channel, but Oosterhouse managed to nab three! His most popular was definitely Carter Can, where he would help encourage homeowners to complete renovations that they thought were too difficult or time-consuming. Anything is possible with Carter!
It's estimated that Oosterhouse has a net worth of $8 million dollars, but not all of that is from the bank of HGTV. He's had roles on other home improvement shows, including working as a carpenter on TLC's Trading Spaces. Also, if you haven't noticed, the guy is a real looker, so it should come as no surprise that he's done some modeling work in his time as well. Brands he's worked with include Nautica, Nivea, and even Bud Light!
10. Sarah Richardson
Sarah Richardson is another of HGTV's most prestigious designers. She's been featured on a number of shows on the channel, but she's probably most famous for Sarah's House. The series aired on HGTV from 2007 until 2011 and featured Richardson purchasing and renovating a run-down home. The show was such a hit that it spawned a spin-off, Sarah's Cottage, and led to plenty of other business opportunities for her in the future.
Richardson may have an eye for design, but there's no denying that she's got an eye for business too, which is probably why her estimated net worth is a staggering $8 million dollars. Looks like that line of home furnishings she released really came in handy! Richardson and her husband, Canadian entrepreneur Alexander Young, currently live in Toronto with their two daughters.
9. Sandra Rinomato
If you're looking to buy a house, Sandra Rinomato is the woman you should be paying attention to because she's hosted two HGTV shows that are all about navigating the ins and outs of the housing market. In 2012, she starred as host of the series Buy Herself, where Rinomato helped single women purchase a home. However, she's probably most famous for her role as the first host of Property Virgins, where she would guide first-time homebuyers through the nerve-wracking process.
Although she eventually stepped down from the role (which was filled by Egypt Sherrod--another name on this list), it's clear that this was a lucrative role for her. Currently, her net worth is estimated to be somewhere around $8 million dollars. While she may not make many TV appearances these days, she hasn't left the property game entirely. She currently works with a Canadian real estate company.
8. Lara Spencer
There are some shows on HGTV that use so much money to improve a home that it makes your head spin, but Lara Spencer's show, I Brake for Yard Sales, took a decidedly more low budget approach. The special had her scouring yard sales and flea markets for the best deals she could find, as well as plenty of tips for viewers to help them find all the best too-good-to-be true bargains.
However, Spencer is probably more well known for her role as a co-anchor on Good Morning America and her roles as a contributor on Nightline and The Early Show. As a major TV personality, it should come as no surprise that Lara Spencer has more money than she probably knows what to do with. Her current net worth is resting at a very (and we mean very) comfortable $9 million dollars.
7. Tarek El Moussa
Tarek El Moussa was your typical unsuspecting real estate agent that got into flipping houses when the market crashed in 2008. He truly made lemons into lemonade because he launched a profitable career with HGTV. Along with his now ex-wife, Christina Anstead, he stars on Flip or Flop. Despite the couple's separation, the show still seems to be going strong, which really speaks to their professionalism and dedication. The original series also led to a spin-off for him--Flipping 101.
He's been quite the busy bee in the TV and real estate world, which has helped launch his brand and net worth into the stratosphere. He currently has a net worth of $10 million. Even if his TV fame were to end tomorrow, something tells us that Tarek El Moussa would still do just fine. With an impressive resume of successfully flipped homes, he doesn't even need HGTV. His excellent work speaks for itself just fine.
6. Candice Olson
Surprisingly, Candice Olson started out with her eyes set on a medical career. However, after she graduated college, she found her true talent in interior design! She got her start in the industry all the way back in 1994 by opening her own design business, Candice Olson Design. By 2001, she was a major player in the design scene, which is when HGTV started knocking down her door, and we're sure glad they did!
Her first foray into television was the series Divine Design. In each episode, Olson would help homeowners redesign a room that they had problems with. Despite the show's relatively unoriginal premise, it quickly became a hit on HGTV, and that was largely thanks to Olson's skill and personality. Although she might not appear on the channel's shows anymore, she's continued her relationship with HGTV. Now, she has partnered with them to launch her collection, earning her a hefty net worth of $10 million!
5. Christina Anstead
Christina told us on Instagram “TV changed my life,” and she’s not wrong. After starring as a judge on the competition show Brother vs. Brother, Christina was offered a show with her then-husband, Tarek El Moussa, on HGTV. That show, Flip or Flop, just happened to turn into a long-running hit that's still airing in 2021. In it, the now divorced couple documents their experiences of flipping homes, with Tarek focused on finding potential properties and Christina lending her design expertise.
Ever since, her house flips have scored her a net worth of $12 million dollars! While her HGTV fame played a large part in making her so wealthy, TV is by no means the only thing occupying her time. Anstead has also released a book with a nutritionist that documented her own personal health struggles. And like many other HGTV stars, Anstead has released a line of furniture. Get it girl!
4. Bryan Baeumler
Canadian contractor Bryan Baeumler has starred in several HGTV shows including Renovation Island and Leave it to Bryan. You know you've arrived when your name is in the title. He's no stranger to guesting on other HGTV shows either, and his credits also include guest judge spots on shows like Canada's Handyman Challenge and Deck Wars. Needless to say, he's a staple of both HGTV and HGTV Canada, and audiences just can't seem to get enough of this handyman superstar.
So, it’s no surprise that he made it on our list with a nice $20 Million. It just goes to show that hard work and dedication really pays off, and then some. But even before he became a runaway personality on HGTV, he was doing just fine in the money department. Prior to his television fame, Baeumler was the CEO of his own construction company, Baeumler Quality Construction and Renovation, and he continues to have several business projects outside of the HGTV world.
3. Chip & Joanna Gaines
Chip and Joanna started from the bottom and built an entire empire from their HGTV show, Fixer Upper. What started as a simple TV show for the couple has turned into a complete design phenomenon that's taken the world by storm. While they might not have invented "farmhouse chic," they definitely made it wildly popular! The success of the original show led to a spin-off as well, Fixer Upper: Behind the Scenes, where Joanna offers a glimpse into her design process.
Worth an estimated combined $20 million, these two hard-working folks have expanded their brand to multiple home decor lines through their very own Magnolia Market. But they didn't just stop at home goods--their business is now expanding into the media world as well. In 2019 they announced the launch of their new network, and they managed to snag the president of HGTV to run the whole shebang. The channel is slated to launch in 2021 and will apparently feature a revival of Fixer Upper.
2. Mike Holmes
HGTV veteran Mike Holmes hasn’t made an appearance on TV in quite a while, but that doesn’t mean he’s exempt from our list! His first HGTV hit was Holmes on Holmes, which ran on the channel from 2003 until 2008. In it, the general contractor would meet up with homeowners whose properties had recieved less-than-stellar renovations from other contractors. Using his expertise, he and his crew would do their best to fix the damage that had been done.
This led to a slew of other HGTV appearances for him, and, unlike some other stars on the channel, every series featured his name in the title. That's some serious star power! Currently, Mike Holmes is worth an estimated $30 million, and he remains one of the wealthiest people to ever be on the network. That “Make it Right” motto sure pays the bills! He's done his time, paid his dues, and deserves every penny.
1. Jonathan and Drew Scott
Real estate wasn’t even on the “Property Brothers” radar until they needed a way to pay for their movie production budget--fate has a funny habit of surprising people that way. However, after buying their first house for $250 and selling it for $50,000, the two found an opportunity that was too good to pass up. Now, they’re worth a combined $200 million dollars! We wouldn't be surprised to see that number continue to rise in the future.
On their hit show of the same name, the Property Brothers help people find and successfully makeover fixer-upper homes, with Drew acting as realtor and Jonathan working as the contractor. While people might have initially tuned in for their housing expertise, the brothers' good looks definitely keep people tuning in week after week! Interestingly, the show wasn't originally on HGTV. Instead, it started its life on the Canadian W Network.
