Chris Pontius's Net Worth as of 2024
$12 Million

Christopher Andrew Pontius was born on the 16th July 1974, in Pasadena, California USA, and is an actor and stuntman who rose to fame as a member of the MTV reality series main cast “Jackass” (2000 – 2002). More, he hosted the spin – off series “Wildboyz” (2003 – 2004), of which he was one of the creators. Chris Pontius has been accumulating his net worth being active in the entertainment industry since 2000.

So just how much is the net worth of Chris Pontius? It has been estimated that his wealth is as much as $12 million, as of early 2016, earned from his various activities in the entertainment industry.

Chris Pontius Net Worth $12 Million

To begin with, Chris grew up on the family ranch in San Luis Obispo, California. His talent in skateboarding earned him his first appearance on Big Brother Magazine (number two). It looks like he wanted to become famous by any and all means, and as a result, Chris appeared naked in public while he was still under 18 (posted in the Magazine number eight). For the next issue, he wrote an article entitled “18 Ways to Be an Asshole”. Later, Chris went from job to job and eventually joined the Big Brother editor Jeff Tremaine, to incorporate the “Jackass” team in 2000. They have released not only the previously mentioned series, but also the reality comedy film “Jackass: The Movie” (2002) directed by Jeff Tremaine. The feature film grossed $79.4 million in the box office which has added sums to the total size of Pontius and other cast members wealth. After such a successful performance, the team has released other films, like “Jackass: Number Two” (2006), “Jackass 2.5” (2007), “Jackass Presents: Mat Hoffman’s Tribute to Evel Knievel” (2008), “Jackass 3-D” (2010), “Jackass 3.5” (2011), “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” (2013) and “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa 5” (2014). All have ontributed somewhat to Chris’ net worth.

Chris Pontius is also known under other nicknames like Party Boy, Bunny the Life-Guard, and many other crazy names – Chris loves disguise. More, he prefers is to appear naked or almost naked in public places. He likes to play the roles of several characters, like Party Boy, a guy who, when he hears music, starts dancing anyhow undressing, or Bunny the Lifeguard, rabbit bodyguard (Chris Pontius wears only a thong, bunny ears and a bra). He posed for nude pictures and sent them to “Play Girl”, female “Play Boy” magazine, but they were not accepted. Undoubtedly, ambiguous behaviour attracts the attention of the masses which eventually results in the growth of Chris Pontius net worth. Sometimes Chris is called “the Superman of modern times”, but Pontius is so comfortable on sexuality that it becomes inconvenient for his entourage. Whatever the conversation, Chris will arrange to divert to an enigmatic perversion field where his cock reins supreme. After “Jackass”, Chris started a new series called “Wildboyz” in which he goes to encounter wild animals along with Steve-O to measure up to them.

In 2011, we saw the second important role created by Pontius in the Sofia Coppola film, “Somewhere”. Again, his net worth benefited.

Finally, in the personal life of the actor and stunt performer, Chris was married to Claire Nolan from 2004 to 2013; together they have one child.

In his writings Stein usually speaks about the economic situation and political issues, and even gives financial advices to individual investors. However, in the mid-60s he also got the job of a poverty lawyer and later continued  as a lawyer for the Federal Trade Comission. After few years of hard work, Ben Stein decided to try himself in acting too, but before starting to get roles he became a Hollywood consultant. Stein got his first comedy role and had to play a boring and monotonous economics teacher in the movie called Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which was released in 1986. As an actor Ben Stein has since appeared in many other movies, such as The Mask, No Intelligence Allowed, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, The Emperor’s New School, Full House, Casper: A Spirited Beginning, The O’Reilly Factor, Maried… with Children, Duckman, The Emperor’s New Schol, Earthworm Jim, Casper Meets Wendy, Family Guy and Richie Rich.

The famous actor and commentator is also recognized thanks to the Comedy Central channel where he was the main face of the show called “Win Ben Stein’s Money” for which he has even received an Emmy award. Ben Stein was earning $5,000 per episode, but money that contestants won was subtracted from actor’s salary. However, these earnings are just nothing if we compare them with Stein’s net worth, which reached $20 million in 2012.

Ben Stein is well known thanks to his ability to harmonize all his activities and show himself as a talented person in every job he does. But maybe one of his most successful, but not so well-known activities is writing speeches for American presidents. Ben Stein was a speechwriter for Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.

In 2012   his last book appeared in stores – “How To Really Ruin Your Financial Life and Portfolio”.

Nowadays Ben Stein lives with his wife Alexandra Denman in Beverly Hills and Malibu, California. The couple married in 1968 and divorced after 6 years, but in 1977 they got back together again. With his wife Ben Stein adopted their son Tom in 1987. As well as his property in Beverly Hills, Ben Stein also owns a summer home in Sandpoint, Idaho and an apartment in the Watergate complex in Washingtton, D.C., which was inherited from his parents.

Mikey Teutul Net Worth

Published

on

Michael Joseph was born 26 November 1978, in Montgomery, New York State USA, and widely known as Mikey Teutul, is a reality television personality, the youngest son of Orange County Choppers founder Paul Teutul, Sr. Mikey began his working life at 14, in the family business.

So just how rich is Mikey Teutul, as of late 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Mikey has a net worth of over $3 million dollars, largely earned  by working at his father’s and older brother Paul Jr,’s company Orange County Choppers (OCC), and Orange County Iron Works, and through his TV appearances.

Mikey Teutul Net Worth $3 Million

Little is known of Mikey’s early life or education – it seems to have always revolved around the family business. Helping out his family in his teens, theoretically he worked as Assistant General Manager. but his main duties were to answer ‘phones, and clear-up and take out the trash. He was on rare occasions given the chance to build bikes, until he was competent to build his own. He also attended events for promoting OCC.

In 2002, the family was invited to take part in a reality show, Discovery Channel’s “American Chopper”, and subsequently “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior”, in the course of which the youngest son was thrown out of the business – the middle son is Daniel, and younger sister Cristin. The reason for Mikey’s exclusion was  that Mikey tried to be a mediator between his father and his brother, but his father seemed to be offended that his younger son did not take his side, and so threw him out of the business. During the filming of the show, Mikey was somethoing of a comedy relief to his father’s workers, and that comedy streak helped gain him popularity in TV shows. Mikey then joined his brother’s post-OCC venture, -Paul Jr  Designs – along with most of their father’s employees; obviously the work atmosphere with Paul Teutul, Sr. was not a particularly happy one. Mikey’s eldest brother Paul  Jr. was the former chief fabricator of OCC.

So actually the main source of Mikey Teutul’s wealth is not his father’s business, but the shows he eventually took part in. These have included ‘The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”, and also “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno. The shows became very popular and Mikey’s appearances earned him a significant amount of money. To say the least, the family drama did not go without consequences – according to rumours, Mikey Teutul was suffering from an addiction problem, and consequently admitted himself to rehab, and managed to overcome the bad habits which were apparently hindering his progress in life, obviously including business.

In his life away from the businesses already referred to and the limelight of TV, Michael loves to paint, and is apparently respected for his productions, as he opened “The Wolfgang Gallery” gallery in Montgomery, New York, where he has sold or auctioned his paintings, adding somewhat to is net worth, although rumours suggest that the gallery may now be closed. Most recently, Mikey is now trying to enter the market under the moniker LLC FarQueue Products with his line of gourmet pasta sauces. Good luck, Mikey!

In his less-than-private personal life, Mikey is apparently still single – there aren’t even any rumours of romantic liaisons.
