Ryan Seacrest Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $260 Million

Ryan John Seacrest isn’t just the host of the hit reality-singing competition “American Idol”, he’s also one of my Idols, because he’s one of those guys who came out of nowhere and made it to the top even when no one else believed in him. Well, I’m sure that a lot of people did always believe in him, but I’m sure that a lot of distant spectators such as me, who were just watching from the sideline didn’t know squat about this guy’s talent or ambitions, so I guess we all thought that he probably wouldn’t make it this far.

After graduating from high school Ryan went on to study journalism at the University of Georgia, however, that didn’t last long, because when he was just 19 years old Seacrest dropped out college and moved to Hollywood in order to pursuit his broadcasting career. I’m sure that most family members and friends thought that leaving school was a bad decision, but if anyone ever had doubts, he was able to quickly prove them wrong, because in less than a year he landed his first job as the host of ESPN’s “Radical Outdoor Challenge”, and from that moment on he started landing more and more high profile gigs, until the year 2002 when he finally got his big break and became the co-host of Fox’s reality show “American Idol”.

After becoming the host of American Idol Ryan became a national as well as an international sensation overnight, and his popularity only got bigger and bigger as time went on, not to mention the size of his net wealth. In 2009 Seacrest signed a $45 million dollar deal to continue to host Fox’s singing reality show, and in 2012 he signed a two-year contract extension at $15 million per year, in other words, $30 more million dollars going straight to his bank account just for doing what he loves to do the most.

Apart from being a popular tv host, Ryan is also a very successful radio host, and his radio show “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” which has already been syndicated nationally and internationally currently airs on more than 150 stations in the US, Canada, and many more countries around the world. Seacrest is also a gifted producer, in fact, he won an Emmy Award back in 2010 for producing a show that airs on ABC called “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution”, and as mentioned earlier he’s signed several multi-million dollar deals with E! Entertainment Television to host and produce through his production company “Ryan Seacrest Productions” or “RSP” some of their most popular shows such as “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”, “E! News”, “Kourtney and Kim Take New York”, “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami”, “Khloe and Lamar“, and several others.

But, how much is Ryan Seacrest really worth? Well, according to several online media outlets and magazines he has an estimated net worth of $250 million, other sources claim that he’s worth $125 million. However, after making our own calculations based on the most recent information about his career, salary and earnings, we have come to the conclusion that he might be a little bit richer than what most people think. We believe that Ryan John has a total fortune of $260 million dollars approximately.

Forbes Magazines currently ranks Seacrest at No. 26 on their 100 Richest Celebrities list with estimated earnings of $61 million as of 2013.
