Sister Wives is back, bringing the reality of Kody Brown and his many relationships to our screens again. How much is he worth now?
The TLC series shows Kody’s time with three wives in his life – Meri, Janelle, and Robyn, who he is legally married to – and 18 combined children.
Christine used to be part of the Brown family, but decided to leave recently. Since the last season of Sister Wives, Kody’s net worth has increased…

Kody’s staggering net worth
Kody reached a net worth of $1 million in 2021, after he was previously worth $800,000 just in 2020 per Celebrity Net Worth.
Report has it that the Sister Wives star isn’t as broke as some may think, and even lives in a $900K mansion with wife Robyn per Daily Mail.
He is reportedly working in the online ad sales industry. Season 15 showed how the family was struggling financially because their money was tied to another house. Once, they had four unsold homes!
It is possible that Kody’s net worth of $1 million is because of those properties, and as a result of his TLC salary.
They also once didn’t seem to have enough money to invest in Meri’s bed and breakfast, when Kody wanted them as equal partners.
In Touch Weekly reports in 2022 that given that Sister Wives has run for 14 seasons, the cast would have made “…at minimum, around $4 million.”
However, it hasn’t always been financial bliss for the Browns as the report adds that Kody and Meri filed for bankruptcy in 2005 and Christine also did the same in 2010.
How much is Kody Brown paid per episode?
Kody and his wives get paid 10 per cent of the budget assigned to each episode, estimated to be around $250,000 to $400,000, says In Touch Weekly.
This amount equates to around $25,000 to $40,000 per episode, shared between Kody, Meri, Janelle, Robyn and for some of season 16 – Christine.
The Brown family allegedly took a pay cut to keep the series on TLC, but continue to have a significant income from the network.

The TLC star’s Cameo side hustle
In August 2021, Kody revealed he had signed up to Cameo, a video platform which allows fans to pay celebrities for personalised videos.
The TLC star charges $99 a video for personal use, and $420 for business purposes. He has five-star reviews and 187 fans on his page.
This means that if each of those fans paid the $99 fee, he would have received $18,513 from making personalised videos alone.
He reportedly suggested, “not to marry your best friend” in a recent video, following his split from Christine. Kody said:
Best friends are great, but I wouldn’t marry my best friend. Even though, in my marriage, I can be married to my best friend and have a lot of passion in that marriage.
