Rolling in it! Everyone seems to know how wild Vanderpump Rules alum Jax Taylor is — but he’s definitely richer than you might think. How exactly does the Bravo TV star make his millions? Keep reading to find out Jax’s net worth and how he makes his money!
What is Jax Taylor’s Net Worth?
Jax is worth a whopping $4 million in 2023, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
How Much Did Jax Taylor Make On ‘Vanderpump Rules’?
The Michigan native earned a solid $25,000 per episode of the show that made him a household name. Though we don’t know what his starting salary was on the series, his reality TV pay certainly makes up the majority of his net worth.
As a part of a cast sweep, Jax was fired from the show after eight years for making racist and transphobic comments. He announced his exit from Vanderpump Rules via Instagram as he was awaiting the arrival of his son, Cruz, whom he shares with wife Brittany Cartwright.
“The last eight years on Vanderpump Rules have been some of the most challenging, rewarding and fulfilling years of my life. Although this is difficult to share, Brittany and I will not be returning for another season of Vanderpump Rules,” he wrote in the now-deleted December 2020 post. “We are excited to take this time to focus on our growing family and share with you our new endeavors. @bravotv, @evolutionusa and our Vanderpump castmates will always remain close to our hearts. Thank you to all the fans who have shared our journey with us and supported us through everything. We love you.”
How Does Jax Taylor Make Money?
If you remember the early days of Pump Rules, you definitely remember ~model Jax~. Before he got his big break on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spinoff, he worked as a model in Europe and Miami. Jax did covers and editorials for magazines like V Man, Esquire and Cosmopolitan. He also did campaigns for big brands like Target, Macy’s and Nordstrom.
Like most celebs these days, Jax’s incredible social media following affords him the opportunity to work with brands on paid advertising posts on his pages. The former model has 1.1 million supporters on Instagram and nearly 320,000 on Twitter. The TV personality calls himself an “investor” in both his Instagram and Twitter bios, so we assume he has funded some killer projects that have reflected positively in his large net worth.
Additionally, Jax has a Cameo account, where he earns $450 to chat with fans live and $117 to make personalized videos.
Jax Taylor Has a New Podcast
Ahead of their Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen appearance in March 2023, Jax and Brittany announced that they’re returning to the spotlight with a new podcast called “When Reality Hits With Jax and Brittany,” detailing their new endeavor in an Instagram post.
“COMING MARCH 28th [movie camera] What happened when the cameras stopped rolling for Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright on Vanderpump Rules? TRUE Reality hit!” read the caption. “Jax and Brittany take you inside their crazy lives as they explore parenthood, marriage, family, friendship, and reality TV. Nothing is off-limits!”
Does Jax Taylor Own Property?
Jax and Brittany moved into their dream home after getting married — which definitely adds some value to his assets. The happy couple purchased a $2 million house in San Fernando Valley, California in May 2019.
“I am feeling SO blessed! We have so much to look forward to,” the Kentucky native wrote on Instagram to announce their big move. “We are moving into our first home … We are growing up, moving forward [and] working for our forever happiness.”
Costars Tom Sandoval and his ex-girlfriend, Ariana Madix, live in the same neighborhood, as did Tom Schwartz and estranged wife, Katie Maloney-Schwartz, before their split.
The TV personality failed to pay his federal and state taxes from 2014 to 2021, which landed him $1.6 million in debt shortly after he was fired from the show.
However, Jax reportedly paid off his tax debt after the government put a lien on his LA-based home.
