Ryan Seacrest is a Rich Man
Take this, Jeff Probst!
The host has signed a $45 million contract extension with American Idol, ensuring that he'll earn $15 million per season and remain the emcee for another three years.
Seacrest previously earned a paltry $5 million per season. He's now the highest paid reality show host of all-time.
"I'm truly appreciative of being part of a show that has had such an enormous impact on popular culture across all ages," said Seacrest. "I look forward to expanding the relationship with Simon Fuller and [CKX chairman] Bob Sillerman, who share the same visionary approach to entertainment media that I strive for with every project."
