‘Sister Wives’, the reality TV show about a polygamist couple, has been a runaway hit for TLC. It has also been a windfall for the once broke Kody Brown and his wives Meri, Christine, Janelle, and Robyn.
So after 7 seasons of the show, what is Kody Brown’s net worth (and his family’s net worth)?
It wasn’t long ago that Kody Brown was bankrupt, according to Radar Online.
Although it was never made clear what Kody did for a living, it was hinted that he did something in sales for an advertising company. Meri also had a job and was bringing in money.
Nevertheless, that wasn’t enough for the family to survive. In 2005, according to leaked documents published by Radar, the family filed for bankruptcy, listing only a few dollars in assets and several hundred thousand dollars in debt.
Soon after his bankruptcy, TLC came calling, and Kody’s fortunes turned around.
TLC often makes relatively poor families very rich — and that’s exactly what happened to the Browns.
From various sources, it is estimated that the Browns were earning an average of around $50,000 per episode for the seven seasons of the shows. Over the seven seasons, there were approximately 130 episodes aired, which gives the family over $6 million.
In addition, the Browns have businesses that they promote. On their website, for instance, they sell several items, including jewelry and clothing. They also promote detox drinks and do speaking engagements.
However, the Browns had to pay off their large debts, and they had to cover the costs associated with their move to Nevada, including several houses.
Nevertheless, since they paid off their debts and settled their finances, they have been making money really quickly. Expect the Browns’ net worth to increase rapidly over the next few years.
So what is Kody Brown’s net worth? What is the Brown family’s net worth? For 2018, we estimate their total net worth at $2-$5 million.
