Compensation for the Judges of “America’s Got Talent”
Let’s take a look at how much money the 17th season’s judges make and how much they’re worth as they prepare to give their verdicts on this year’s performances.
Mr. Simon Cowell
The highest paid judge on America’s Got Talent is Simon Cowell, a British music mogul and television producer who has been named one of the most successful media celebrities of the last three decades.
The native of Lambeth is one of the world’s highest-paid celebrities and has a net worth of $600 million. According to the reports, Simon brings in between $50 and $100 million annually from his various business endeavours. For $15.5 million, Cowell has an Upper East Side condo with three bedrooms.
Sofia Vergara, another international superstar, is estimated to be worth around $180 million. The Colombian-born actress and businesswoman has amassed a fortune via her work in both the entertainment and corporate sectors. She was barely 17 when she shot her first-ever commercial with Pepsi.
As judges on America’s Got Talent, the Modern Family pulls in $10 million every year. According to Forbes, she made $43 million between June 2019 and June 2020, making her one of the highest-paid actresses. In 2014, Sofia spent $10 million for a Beverly Hills home, and in June of 2020, she spent $26 million on a mansion there.
Heidi Klum is one of the most paid models and a Victoria’s Secrets Angel with an estimated $160 million in net worth. Alone, her 2011 modelling career netted her $20 million.
Reportedly, the model’s annual salary as a judge on America’s Got Talent is over $3 million. She even bought a mansion worth $9.8 Million after she split from her ex-husband Seal.
Whoopi Goldberg, Howie Mandel
The immensely adored judge Howie Mandel is reported to be worth $60 Million. Following a string of successful stand-up performances and guest spots on shows like St. Elsewhere and Deal or No Deal, the Canadian-born comedian now earns an estimated $1.75 million as a judge on America’s Got Talent.
Howie reportedly makes $70,000 per episode. It cost him $2.6 million to buy property in the northwest suburbs of Los Angeles in 2018, and he made $9.5 million selling the identical properties later that year. The celebrity even has his own Hidden Hills mansion.
How much does Terry Crews get paid for his role on America’s Got Talent? To call Cat Deeley a professional host is an understatement. Cat Deeley is a seasoned pro at hosting everything from MTV chart shows to children’s shows to game shows.
A salary of $60,000 each episode seems reasonable, and perhaps even generous. Terry Crews has been working in the entertainment industry since 1999, yet he is a relative newcomer to the field of hosting.
