Step aside, Simon Cowell. When it comes to the biggest paychecks in the reality show world, Ryan Seacrest is king. Ryan is already quite wealthy, but a brand new deal will have him rolling in the dough.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ryan has just inked a three-year, $45 million deal, making him the highest paid reality TV host ever. Ryan will work exclusively for CKX, which is the parent company for Idol.
He’ll continue at E! as their main anchor, and will still produce reality shows like Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Sounds like Ryan will still get a lot of freedom to work all over town, and now he’ll just be making even more money!
The Idol producers have now locked down Paula and Ryan for next year’s show. Now they have to work on Kara DioGuardi, Randy Jackson, and most importantly, Simon Cowell. Think everyone will be coming back?
