Jenelle Evans is one of the most controversial moms in the entire Teen Mom franchise — and that’s saying quite a bit. And with controversy usually comes money. That’s what happened to Jenelle.
In addition to making money off of Teen Mom, she makes money from her beauty line, promotions, ads, and other things.
So what is Jenelle Evans net worth in 2018? What are Jenelle Evans’s salary/earnings from MTV? Read on…
Jenelle Evans is best known as the most controversial mom on Teen Mom 2. She is now married to David Eason, but she previously had children with other men.
There have been wide ranging amounts reported for Jenelle’s salary. Some sources have put it at as high as $75,000 an episode. But that’s wildly inaccurate. In fact, the highest paid Teen Moms make at most around $30,000 per episode today. And that’s a significant increase from what they used to get paid a few years ago.
Although individual salaries aren’t reported, Jenelle likely earns around $350,000 per year from MTV at this point. As of 2015-6 she said that she had made a bit over $500,000 from MTV. With two additional years of shows, her total earnings from MTV as of 2018 are likely close to $1 million.
But that’s not all Jenelle makes money from — a lot of it comes from using her social media accounts to advertise products. At standard advertisement rates, these would have paid her between $100,000 and $200,000. And Jenelle’s new beauty line JE Cosmetics Inc, although just starting, has been selling out of products at around $20/item.
Then there’s her book, which based on her total sales of a few hundred thousand copies, would have paid her $100,000 to $200,000.
That all adds up to quite a bit of earnings for Jenelle. However, she has also suffered some problems in spending and other issues. She has had a lot of legal expenses for arrests over the past several years. And she has had to deal with custody battles with her mother, and her baby-daddies’ parents. Those aren’t cheap.
In all, we estimate Jenelle Evans net worth in 2018 at $750,000 to $1 million.
