How much is Ellen worth?
She’s one of the world’s favourite daytime show hosts and for good reason.
Ellen DeGeneres is one of TV’s nicest and most fun hosts, and one of the only women to make it in a male-dominated world.
Starting as a stand-up comedian and making it as an actress in the mid-90s with the TV series Ellen, she’s now graduated to a full blown TV giant with her talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Ellen’s net worth
Ellen DeGeneres’ net worth is estimated at $450 million dollars. Her spouse, Portia de Rossi, whom Ellen married in 2008, has a net worth of $20 million, bringing the couple’s net worth to $470 million.
Forbes reported that Ellen made history in 2018 by becoming the first woman to earn $20 million for a Netflix stand-up special. The host revealed on her show that she had spent the summer working on a stand-up special—her first in 15 years—and has taped it in Seattle. No release date has been revealed as of yet.
Of course, Ellen is most known for the The Ellen DeGeneres Show on ABC. The show won an Emmy in 2015, receiving the award for outstanding talk show.
It was once reported the host received $50 million per year for the show. Combined with her producer credits, Forbes said 2018 is the most lucrative year for Ellen yet.
According to Celebritynetworth, Ellen’s annual salary stands at $75 million.
When she’s not onscreen, the host is busy with plenty of side-businesses. Ellen has had lines with PetSmart and Bed, Bath and Beyond, which add a pretty penny to her piggy bank.
Ellen launched EllenTube in 2014, an online platform that broadcasts exclusive content from her show.
Ellen also has a contract with CoverGirl and used to be a spokesperson for JCPenney and American Express.

Ellen the Landlord
Perhaps this will come as a surprise to some, but Ellen and her wife are well-known for their real-estate portfolio.
The couple often rent properties to other celebrities. For instance, in 2015, Ellen was Nick Jonas’ landlord. The total number of properties owned by the couple is unknown.
In the last 12 years, Ellen has sold houses to Will Ferrell, Ryan Seacrest and Sean Parker (to name a few).
