What is Kris Kelly’s salary?
Kris Kelly is thought to get paid around $15K per episode, but each cast member’s salary ranges between $10,000 to $25,000.
His father Brad Kelly is thought to make more though, at $65K.
Alaska is reportedly providing Discovery over $600,000 to produce Bering Sea Gold, which is said to cover the cost cast members are being paid.
During the first season, they were paid less than $60K, but it’s likely that this would not have decreased now that the 14th season is out.
