Mackenzie Mckee has been selected as a replacement for Farrah Abraham on the hit MTV show Teen Mom OG. Mckee was a teen mom who previously appeared in the short lived show Teen Mom 3, before it was canceled. So now that Mackenzie Mckee has had a dramatic increase in earnings — a new outsized salary — what is Mackenzie Mckee net worth in 2018? What are Mackenzie Mckee’s salary/earnings? Read on…
You may remember Mackenzie Mckee from Teen Mom 3. She was arguably the most liked mom in the show, and one of the most liked moms in the entire Teen Mom franchise. So it’s not surprising that after Farrah Abraham was fired by MTV for doing pornographic videos (as well as fighting with producers), Mckee got the part.
Mckee was 16 when she first got pregnant with her boyfriend, Josh. Her child was named Gannon. She subsequently had two other children. She eventually married Josh and although they went through some very rough times, they did work things out.
Mckee more recently went through some seriously difficult times, after her mom was diagnosed with cancer. MTV reportedly filmed a special about the experience, from the diagnosis through the treatment. Mckee’s mother recently shaved her head and started making progress battling the disease.
In addition to her work on Teen Mom, Mckee also sells a fitness program called Body By Mac. The program is available on her website, and is sold as a series of videos ranging from $2 to $20. That business will likely become a lot more successful now that Mackenzie will have a starring role in the continuing series Teen Mom OG.
The other moms in Teen Mom OG will likely be continuing, although there are some rumors that some of them are considering an exit at some point. Mckee will be joining Catelynn Baltierra, Maci Bookout Mckinney, and Amber Portwood as one of the four stars.
The Teen Mom OG stars tend to make the most of all of the MTV reality show stars. In fact, at the end of her tenure with Teen Mom OG, it was estimated that Farrah Abraham was earning well over $30,000 per episode. Jenelle Evans from Teen Mom 2 was reportedly making a similar amount at the peak of her time with MTV. She has earned nearly $1 million in total from her time on MTV.
However, some of the newer stars are not making quite as much. Briana DeJesus has a much smaller contract, and she still has to maintain a day job, since she was on Teen Mom 3 like Mckee. DeJesus and Mckee were not making money from MTV over the past several years — unlike Farrah and Jenelle.
Those amounts, plus the raises that were given, resulted in very high net worth numbers for the original Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 women.
Nevertheless, Mackenzie comes in at a good time for MTV, with good earnings for the Teen Mom franchise. This, as well as the fact that Farrah was gone, gave her a bargaining chip. In total we estimate that Mckee is making around $20,000-$25,000 per episode to film. She also earned a significant amount from the special about her mother.
In all, we estimate Mackenzie Mckee net worth in 2018 at $200,000.
