Ryan Seacrest’s Net Worth Is Ridiculously High (& It Has a Lot to Do with ‘Live’)

We enjoyed watching Ryan Seacrest work his magic on Live with Kelly and Ryan. But if there’s one thing we love about the 48-year-old TV personality, it’s his ability to juggle so many projects without missing a beat, whether it’s On Air with Ryan SeacrestKeeping Up with the Kardashians or Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve

Now that Seacrest has left Live and is joining Wheel of Fortune, we can’t help but wonder how much has the co-host and producer has made throughout his career? Here’s what we know about Ryan Seacrest’s net worth of $450 million.

1. What Is Ryan Seacrest’s Net Worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the TV personality is currently worth $450 million and his current salary is $75 million. This will likely increase in the next few months, especially since Seacrest is replacing Pat Sajak as host of Wheel of Fortune.

2. What Is Seacrest’s Salary on American Idol?

It’s impossible to think of the competition series without thinking of our favorite host. A few years after Seacrest joined the series to host in 2003, he signed a $45 million deal to keep hosting, which made him the top-earning presenter at the time. And according to Forbes, he now makes $10 million per season for the American Idol reboot.

3. How Much Did Seacrest Make on Live?

In February 2023, Seacrest announced that he’s stepping down as co-host. (He was replaced by Mark Consuelos.) It turns out Seacrest’s salary was quite similar to his earnings on American Idol, because Forbes reported he made over $10 million on the Emmy-winning talk show.

4. What About Keeping Up with the Kardashians?

Did you know he has a production company, Ryan Seacrest Productions? Not only did he work on E!'s most popular series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but he has also worked on multiple spin-offs, including Khloe and Lamar and Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

Seacrest’s production company is also known for CMT’s Melissa and Tye, Bravo’s Shahs of Sunset and E! network’s Married to Jonas. Plus, in 2017, he signed a major deal with ABC Studios to create exclusive new content for the network. Color us impressed...

5. What About Wheel of Fortune?

In June 2023, Seacrest confirmed that he will replace Sajak as the host of Wheel of Fortune. Although we don’t know his exact salary, the new endeavor will undoubtedly affect his net worth.

6. What About His Clothing Brand and Skin Care Line for Men?

If you’ve ever admired Seacrest’s stylish, tailored suits on the red carpet (guilty), then you can thank Christopher Bailey, his personal designer. With Bailey’s help, Seacrest launched a successful collection, Ryan Seacrest Distinction, with Macy’s in 2014, and it includes a variety of suits, sports gear and evening wear.

Just three years later, the producer also revealed the secret to his smooth skin by launching Polished, a skincare line for men. He teamed up with famous dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer to launch the new brand, which includes an exfoliant, dual cleanse and shave, anti-aging serum and SPF moisturizer.

Radiant smile, smooth skin and a bank account that grows by the day? Clearly, Ryan’s got it all.
