How did Tickle from Moonshiners Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on November 30, 1976, Steven Ray Tickle is the son of Lois Eileen Tickle, whom he is incredibly close to. At this time, not much is known about his early life. According to some sources, however, he had gotten himself involved with drugs such as cocaine in his teens, after his father fell ill. Ultimately, it wasn’t until the 2010’s that he started to make himself known on television.
In 2011, he began to star in the docudrama, Moonshiners. Narrated by Jeremy Schwartz, the series follows the law-evading lives of moonshiners—that is, people who produce and sell liquor illegally—in Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Members of the main cast, Tickle and his partner Tim were introduced in the first episode, which centered around them scouting for an area for their operations.
Popular among viewers, the premiere attracted over 2.8 million viewers in the United States. Following a seven-episode run, Moonshiners was renewed for a second season, which aired in the fall of 2012. Since then, the docudrama has continued for several years; as of 2018, there have been seven seasons. While the cast has changed over the years, Tickle and Tim have remained on the show for all seven seasons. Some of the newer moonshiners featured in the series include Big Chuck, Patti, David and Digger, to name a few.
How much is Tim paid for his appearances on Moonshiners? Unfortunately, as much as we’d like to know, details of his salary have not been disclosed to the public. Given how popular the show is, however, it wouldn’t be surprising if he earns at least $10,000 per season.
Two years after rising to fame on Moonshiners, he was given his own spinoff titled, Tickle. Filmed on location in Gretna, Virginia, it follows Tickle as he opens a store called Tickle’s Tackle in attempts to sell his stash of moonshine. Premiered in 2013, it ran on the Discovery Channel for one year.
As far as other ventures go, it’s said that he is also a qualified carpenter; in 2013, it was revealed that he had helped to build the popular Clyde’s Restaurant in Washington, D.C.
