Alan Thicke Net Worth $40 Million

So how rich is Alan Thicke? Sources estimate that his current net worth is $40 million, most of his wealth having been accumulated through his involvement with television and films.

Alan Thicke attended Elliot Lake Secondary School until 1965, and then the University of Western Ontario, becoming a member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. Alan’s career in television began in the 1970s, as a writer for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and then as a host of the popular TV game show “First Impressions”, and a few years later “Animal Crack-Ups”, which certainly helped his net worth grow.

Alan was liked by the audience, and from then on television was always the biggest part of Thicke’s career. He was offered his own talk shows, which he hosted, produced and wrote – “The Alan Thicke Show” and “Thicke of the Night”, which significantly boosted his net worth and popularity. Even though his career began by hosting television shows, Alan gained most of his success acting in television shows, especially one situation comedy entitled “Growing Pains”. Later, Alan starred in the American TV series “Hope & Gloria” and a number of other not that well-known TV series. In 2008 he played himself in one episode of the popular TV show “How I Met your Mother”. In 2013 he participated in the reality show entitled “Celebrity Wife Swap” and in 2014 became a host of the reality show “Unusually Thicke”.

Although mostly recognised as a writer and television personality, Alan Thicke has also appeared in a number of films, including the comedy “Copper Mountain”, direct-to-video film “Stepmonster”, romantic comedy “Carolina” and crime drama “Alpha Dog”.

Another aspect of Thicke’s successful career is his work as a song composer – he is the author of the theme songs of TV series “Different Strokes” and “The Strokes of Life” as well as theme songs of game shows “The Wizard of Odds”, “Celebrity Sweepstakes” and others. During his career, he has been nominated for four Emmy awards, a Golden Globe for his performance in “Growing Pains” and a Gemini Award for his performance in “The Trial of Red Riding Hood”. Allan Thicke is a famous celebrity in Canada and it has been proven when his name has been added to the “Canada’s Walk of Fame” in 2013.

In his personal life, Alan Thicke has been married three times. Alan has two sons from his first marriage with actress Gloria Loring(1970-84), who are also famous – Robin Thiche is a singer and Brennan Thicke is an actor. He also has a son named Carter William with his second wife Gina Tolleson(1994-99). Alan married Tanya Callau in 2005. Having raised three children, Allan decided to share his wisdom of parenting with the world in the two books he published: “How Men Have Babies: The Pregnant Father’s Survival Guide” (1999) and “How to Raise Kids Who Won’t Hate you” (2006). Being a published author might have had a slight influence on his net worth.
