WARNING: The list will make you feel really poor. Dr. Phil comes in at number one with $79 million. Cash him outside, how bow dah!
Dr. Phil’s negotiating skills are top notch. His contract permits him to gain a high percentage of ad and product placement revenue. He’s also been busy behind the scenes producing shows like The Doctorsand Bull. Ellen Degeneres makes a close second at $77 million.
Ryan Seacrestmade the list which is no surprise considering he’s the mastermind you either love or hate for introducing us to The Kardashians.
Bill O’Reilly made the list at 7th place with $37 million. He’ll probably want to save and invest that money well since it’s unlikely he’ll make next year’s list after his firing at Fox Newsfollowing sexual harassment claims.
All in all, it looks like the secret to making this list aside from a nice chunk of change from hosting a tv show is to have a very strong side hustle, if not multiple! Gary, it may be time to start that speedo line….
