How did Joey Essex Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on July 29, 1990, in London, England, Joey Essex’s childhood was difficult as his mother took her own life when he was just ten years old. Unfortunately, not much else is known about his childhood, other than the fact that he grew up with his sister Frankie. Ultimately, it wasn’t until the early 2010’s, after he first appeared on The Only Way is Essex, that he first gained fame.
Premiered on October 10, 2010, the series showcases the daily lives of a number of individuals from the Essex area in Southeast England. Introduced in the second season, Joey initially appeared as a supporting cast member alongside his cousin, Chloe Sims. By series three, however, he was promoted to being a regular (his sister also joined as a supporting cast). Responsible for his rise to fame, he ultimately remained on the show for three years until 2013.
From there, he took part in two reality series in 2013―Splash! and I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, the latter of which saw him finish in fourth place. Continuing to make himself known on television, he landed his own program called Educating Joe Essex in 2014, which followed him as he headed to the wilds of South Africa. Relatively popular, it ultimately went on to for two seasons.
A year into the series, he also competed in the reality show, The Jump, which followed celebrities as they attempt to master various winter sports such as giant slalom, snow skates, bobsleigh, and ski cross. Featured in the second season, Joey eventually emerged as the winner after many weeks of challenges.
Since then, he has also worked on the TV program, Celebs Go Dating. Though he initially joined the show as a participant (season one and two), he has since been serving as the online presenter. Unfortunately, it’s unknown how much he’s paid for the role at this time.
In terms of other endeavors, the TV star is also known for his meet-and-greet tours. In fact, he has taken part in well over two dozen events in the past. With that said, it doesn’t look like he has any planned for the next few months.
