Bristol Palin has become a well-known public figure thanks in part to her mom being former vice presidential-hopeful Sarah Palin, and also in part to being a teen mom turned reality star. She’s now making headlines for more baby drama after having her second child, and she’s currently being sued by the baby’ s father for child support. Despite being well-conditioned to tabloid drama and media attention now, Bristol Palin received her first dose of national attention at the young age of 17, when she was pregnant for the first time in the middle of her mother’s campaign alongside presidential hopeful John McCain. Sarah Palin was vehemently against abortion and supported abstinence only sex education, and her daughter’s teenage pregnancy was thought to be an example of her hypocrisy. Though her mother would ultimately lose in the presidential election, Bristol Palin made efforts to remain in the spotlight for quite some after, and generated a respective amount of individual income doing so. According to several sources, after Bristol decided to work with The Candie’s Foundation in 2009 as a teen pregnancy ambassador to champion abstinence for fellow teens, she managed to pull in about $100,000 for her engagements a year. This added up to over $1,000,000 in 2018, despite the announcement of her second pregnancy, which she said she was “disappointed” about. Aside from securing a job as a speaker to teens, Bristol Palin also participated in several reality television stints. To start, Bristol Palin appeared on ABC’s hit reality show, Dancing With The Stars, twice. Some say that celebrities who appear n DWTS get paid a base salary of $125,000 with bonuses for not being eliminated. Palin lasted four weeks in her first appearance, meaning she likely received an additional pay-out at some point. She also tried her hand at having her own reality show, supposedly set to air on the BIO channel, but it was scrapped before it could air. She did manage to follow through with her own book, “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far“, and this endeavor ended up being a bestseller, garnering decent but mixed reviews. Thus far, in 2018 that Bristol Palin net worth is likely to be an estimated $1,500,000. It make sense, because already at the age of 24 she was able to already have bought and put on the market an over half-million dollar pad.
