Netflix brings in the big bucks
Daym Drops exact Netflix salary is unknown. However, as we have seen his net worth rocket since appearing on Fresh, Fried and Crispy, it is likely that he earned a pretty penny.
According to the Observer, some hosts for Netflix have earned around $12 million, with can be separated into at $2 million an episode. As that is based on David Letterman’s salary – who is one of America’s most distinguished and sought-after talk show hosts – it is unlikely that Daym Drops would be paid as much as Letterman.
However, Netflix are known for paying substantially more than other production companies. Netflix’s salaries are reportedly 25 percent to 50 percent higher than those at legacy media companies. So, Daym Drops can be expected to have earned a tidy sum as a presenter on Fresh, Fried and Crispy.
