Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as the star Olympian Bruce Jenner, has been making a lot of money for a very long time. She has been on a few different reality TV shows, with this new one, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! being her most recent one.
This is the second time Jenner has been out in the jungle on the I’m A Celebrity reality TV show. The first time she was a contestant on it was back in 2003 and was the US version. Although she made a lot of money from being a contestant on the show back then, she is making a lot more these days. How much is she worth these days with this newest reality TV stint? How much has she made in the past from the other reality shows she did? How much was she paid for being on ‘_Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s_’?
Although Jenner now just does reality TV, this wasn’t always the case for her. In her former life, living as Bruce Jenner, she was a star Olympian. In fact, when living as Bruce, in 1976, she won a gold medal for competing in and winning the decathlon. This was the beginning of making a name for herself back then. However, she decided to retire after winning the gold because she said,
“I had to give up too much to get there, life-wise. I knew it was the last hurrah.”
After she retired, Jenner then signed a deal with Wheaties in the 80s, leading her to have a short career as a race car driver. After that, she played in two TV movies. One called, ‘The Golden Moment: An Olympic Love Story‘ and the other one was titled, ‘Grambling’s White Tiger‘. These were before she started with reality TV.
She was then in ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s‘ for a while before having her own reality show called, ‘ I Am Cait‘ which lasted for two seasons. Now she is on yet another reality show.
While promoting ‘ I’m A Celebrity‘they asked Caitlyn who was her ideal campmate for the show if she could choose one person, She said Kanye West and had this to say about her rapper ex- step-son-in-law and friend.
“Kanye West is a good friend of mine and he’s good to have an intelligent and interesting conversation with.”
She was also asked to tell them about what she experienced the last time she was on I’m A Celebrity‘ and she was asked why she chose to appear on the show again. This is what she had to say about it.
“It was a very interesting experience last time I did it. Being in the jungle is certainly not easy and yes, it is totally back to basics but I thought this would be a great opportunity to leave everything behind for three weeks. Last time, it was almost like a cleansing of the soul!”
It wasn’t just an amazing experience for her but the money she is making for being on the newest ‘ I’m A Celebrity‘ isn’t anything to sneeze at for just one person. She is making $640,000.
That $640k may seem like a lot to most people but that is nothing compared to what Caitlyn made, as well as the rest of the KarJenner clan, make for being on ‘KUWTK‘. Although it is not known exactly what everyone on the show makes for being on it now, _TMZ_reports that back in 2012, the Kardashian and Jenner family all made a whopping $40 million just for renewing the reality show. Each one of the family members who appeared on the show got an equal share of the money. This means Caitlyn Jenner earned a nice share for her appearance on it. And that is nothing compared to what the family made a few years later, banking double what they made in 2012 just for renewing their contract again.
So, now we come to the question of what Caitlyn Jenner’s net worth is now. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the former athlete turned reality star is now worth a nice chunk of change at $100 million.
And, what about the rest of the KarJenner clan? Since they are still on the show, they are making a lot more than Caitlyn is since she stopped appearing. According to Digital Spy, the family renewed their contracts in 2017 for another five seasons, letting us keep up with the Kardashian’s until the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020, earning them a whopping $150 million. That comes out to about $30 million per season for the KarJenner’s!
