Surprisingly enough, the question that most Big Bang Theory fans ask is how much the cast members are worth. I guess it really shouldn’t be that much of a surprise since the sitcom is one of the most popular shows on television right now. I suppose it’s only natural to be curious when a show has that high of ratings and merchandise. Seriously, if you go to Books-a-million, there is a lot of Big Bang Theory merchandise. Just a heads up!
Anyway, it was one of the most repeated questions about the Big Bang Theory, so we have the answers! These answers were found using sites like celebritynetworth.com.
Melissa Rauch plays Bernadette, the little, lovable wife to the perverted Howard. Rauch has currently dappled a bit in the indie movie circuit with The Bronze and she is currently worth a very nice $8 million. Rauch makes a total of $75 thousand per episode of the Big Bang Theory.
Mayim Bialik, who plays Sheldon Cooper’s main squeeze, Amy Farrah Fowler, is no stranger to popular situation comedy shows. Bialik actually started out very young. She was 14 when she landed the role of Blossom Russo on the popular 90s show, Blossom. Look up that show! It’s good! Due to her experience and great comedic talents, Bialik is worth $12 million and makes $75 thousand an episode as Amy Farrah Fowler.
Simon Helberg plays Bernadette’s perverted hubby, Howard Wolowitz. Helberg is hilarious in his role and it is no wonder with his comedic acting experience. He has appeared in MADtv, Old School, Mama’s Boy, and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. All of Helberg’s hard work has certainly paid off since he is currently worth $24 million and makes $800 thousand per episode as Wolowitz.
Kunal Nayyar is the man behind romantically inept, Raj Koothrappali. Nayyar actually has another popular sitcom on the air right now that he is a part of. Kunal Nayyar is the voice of Vijay on Sanjay and Craig. The two popular shows have earned him a whopping $25 million and he makes $800 thousand an episode as Raj on the Big Bang Theory.
Ah, Johnny Galecki. I remember having a huge crush on him as David on Rosanne in the 90s. Now, I also have a crush on Leonard Hofstadter of the Big Bang Theory. So really, everything has come full circle. With many years of TV shows and films under his belt, Galecki is worth a staggering $40 million and makes a cool million per episode as Leonard.
Besides being on the Big Bang Theory, Kaley Cuoco has had many short lived roles on other very popular shows. Cuoco was Bridget Hennessy on the sitcom 8 Simple Rules from 2002-2005 and she played Billie Jenkins in the final season of Charmed. She must have learned some magic on the set of Charmed because Cuoco is worth $45 million and makes $1 million per episode as Penny on the Big Bang Theory.
Really, I saw this one coming. Jim Parsons, who plays arguably the most popular character on the show, Sheldon Cooper, is the lead bread winner of the cast. Parsons has also appeared on Broadway and had a TV series based off of one of the plays he stared in (The Normal Heart). Such prestige has earned Parsons $50 million and $1 million per episode as the great Sheldon Cooper.
