Kailyn Lowry isn’t the most flashy mom of the famous Teen Mom franchise, but she is actually one of the wealthier ones. Having been on Teen Mom 2 since the beginning, and having appeared on 8 seasons of the show, Kail still keeps working on ventures outside the franchise.Image Credit: Instagram post by Kailyn Lowry • Nov 22, 2017 at 3:28pm UTC
So what is her net worth? How much has she made from the Teen Mom franchise? How much does she make from her other ventures? What’s her salary? Read on…
Unlike most of the stars we write about, Kailyn Lowry doesn’t have that much of a career to speak of. In fact, her career started with her getting pregnant at 16, and managing to get a spot on a new version of the series Teen Mom (16 and Pregnant) which had already made stars out of Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout, and others.
Kailyn did a total of 124 episodes of the show, and over the time, her salary has increased significantly. Earlier on in the series, she and her co-stars made a few thousand dollars for the entire season of the show. But over the years, with her bargaining ability dramatically increased due to her newfound name recognition, she’s been commanding significantly more.
While some sites claim that Kailyn and Jenelle Evans make upwards of $75,000 per episode, her actual salary is somewhere in the range of $400,000-$500,000 per season, or around $35,000 per episode. With 124 episodes under her belt, that’s quite a major income.
Nevertheless, like all Teen Mom stars, Kailyn has gotten into other ventures in order to make money. While continuing to study post-high-school, she has started businesses and moved into some diverse areas.
Aside from the MTV money, Kailyn earns a significant amount from advertisements and promotions. Like her co-stars, she promotes weight reduction drinks and other similar products. Given the size of her social media following, she can command rates as high as $100,000 or more for a major promotional deal.
Kailyn also has a podcast, called Coffee Convos, with a friend of hers, which does several promotions. In fact, brands such as Hello Fresh, as well as clothing lines, pay Kailyn to promote their products during the podcast. These deals run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and they provide significant addition to Kailyn Lowry’s net worth.
At one point, Kailyn Lowry launched a clothing line called Love and Lowry, although that brand appears to be defunct now. In general, the Teen Mom stars don’t actually put the money in (or do much of the work) building their clothing lines, so this likely had little effect on her net worth.
Kail has several products she promotes across all media as well. Kail has written multiple books, including a New York Times bestseller. That means about 10,000 books sold in the first week. In total, given the royalty rates for books, she likely made only a few thousand dollars each from those books, but the additional publicity helps with her other promotional ventures.
In 2018, Kailyn started tweeting out websites as promotions. She seems to have picked this up from Briana and Javi, who appear to have had a deal to promote stories about the Teen Mom cast, before they broke up. With 1.37 million followers on Twitter, Kail can expect to make $5,000 or more per sponsored post.
Given that she tweets multiple of these posts a day, she could see up to $10,000 per day in sponsorships. Given that she likely has a longer-term contract, her actual take home pay is probably closer to $1,000 to $2,000 per post. Still, that’s quite a bit of money.
Kailyn Lowry now has a significantly broad set of ventures, which she earns money from. In addition to her sponsorships in sites like Instagram, she does daily tweets, and podcast promotions. Kail also has multiple books, for which she gets royalties, and she’s always trying to start new products.
In total, we estimate Kailyn Lowry net worth in 2018 at $1.5 million to 2 million.
