Your favorite rapper has NOTHING on this guy. According to the Hollywood Reporter, radio host turned entertainment mogul Ryan Seacrest will earn a whopping $55 million this year alone! (No wonder Spencer Pratt wants to be this guy’s intern.)
Find out how Seacrest will rake in all of that dough below:
36-year-old Seacrest, who was recently named the most powerful man in reality television, will be paid handsomely for his roles on American Idol, his morning radio show “On Air with Ryan Seacrest”, and his producing jobs (“Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” etc.)
The bulk of Seacrest’s earnings come from his radio contract with Clear Channel, which is reportedly worth $20 million a year. (My God!)
He is also paid around $15 million from his television deal with American Idol’s parent company CKX and has a “mega-deal” with NBC Universal for his television projects.
Ryan also earns from his work on specials such as ‘Dick Clark’s New Years’s Rockin Eve‘ and for his brand partnerships with Coca-Cola, Microsoft and ‘Proctor & Gamble‘.
When asked what title should be placed next to his name on business cards, Ryan simply said, “busy or tired.”
Makes you kind of re-evaluate your life doesn’t it?
