Paris Hilton’s Net Worth 2018 – $100 Million

How Did Paris Hilton earn Her Money and Wealth?

Born on February 17, 1981 in New York City, New York, Paris Whitney Hilton is the daughter of a former actress and a well-known business; however she is perhaps best known for being the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, the same man who founded the Hilton Hotels back in the 1910’s. Like many celebrities, she started her career early; she first began modelling while still in grade school.

By the time she was nineteen, Hilton had been recruited by T Management- Donald Trumps modelling agency. From there, she quickly made herself known as a young party girl. By 2001, the blonde had developed a reputation for herself as a socialite. Over the next few years, she graced the covers of number of magazines including Vanity Fair, Giola, and Tatler. Of course, it goes without saying that she would have been paid an appreciative amount for her modelling.


However it wasn’t until 2003, that she received a huge breakthrough with the release of her reality TV show, The Simple Life. Depicting the lives of herself, and fellow socialite Nicole Richie, the series saw them as they “struggled” to perform various low-paying jobs such as working in fast food restaurants or farm work. Hugely popular among TV viewers, the television show earned a number of awards throughout its run including an ASCAP Award for the category of “Top TV Series”. Although it was later dropped by its original network- Fox, it was eventually picked up and resumed by E!. Considerably long-running, especially for a reality show, it continued for a total of 55 episodes, which spanned across four years. According to various sources, Hilton was paid approximately $3 million for each season; multiple that by the show’s five seasons and that equates to an amount of $15 million.

The following year, Hilton not only released a new lifestyle brand, but also helped to design a collection for Samantha Thavasa- a well known Japanese brand. In addition, she also created a line of jewelry that was sold exclusively on Amazon. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the blonde later came out with her own line of fragrances both for women and men. A fine business endeavour, the perfumes has since earned over $1.5 million in terms of revenue, according to various sources- making it the second most popular celebrity fragrance of all time.

In 2008, Hilton was the star of another reality show- Paris Hilton’s My New BFF. Originally aired on MTV in the United States, the competition reality series centred around the blonde as she seeks out a new BFF “best friends forever”. The winner of a Fox Reality Award, it once again proved to be another hit on the small screen; a British version of the show later went on air in the UK under ITV2. By 2009, an international version- Paris Hilton’s Dubai BFF had been released on television. Considering the fact that her previous reality series earned her a few million per season, it’s probably not far fetched to say that Paris Hilton’s My New BFF earned around the same amount, if not more.
