Bam Margera Net Worth is $50 Million (as of 2019)
So today we are going to talk about Bam Margera net worth, which currently amounts to $45 million. As you all know, this daredevil has made a career as a professional skateboarder, actor, television and radio personality. Back when he was an ordinary (well, more or less) guy from Pennsylvania, Margera used to spend time skateboarding along with his friends, filming their stunts and pranks. These videos were later placed on the internet, attracting viewers from all over the world. Jeff Tremaine, the former editor of the popular magazine Big Brother, was one of the people who came across those videos. He noticed Bam’s potential at once and encouraged him, along with his friends, to join the motley team for a new production. That’s when Bam Margera net worth started to grow really rapidly.

The production went on to be called Jackass (yes, you know the name). At first it was just a show that aired on MTV, but as it got really popular the team decided it is time to make a movie. Jackass: The Movie has grossed more than $64 million in the United States alone. Having in mind that the production did not ask for a lot of investments (the budget was only $5 million), this should definitely be considered a great commercial success. As it often happens, the critics were not as positive as the audience who bought the tickets to see the show. The reviews generally varied from absolutely negative to mixed. Lou Lumenick who writes for New York Post is quoted to say: “[this] plotless collection of moronic stunts is by far the worst movie of the year.”, while Pete Vonder Haar described the film as “incredibly funny and often too disgusting for words.” The summary provided by Rotten Tomatoes was quite similar to this later opinion: “There’s a good chance you’ll be laughing hysterically at one stunt, but getting grossed out by the next one”.
Jackass Number Two not only received more positive reviews from critics, but also exceeded the profits of the previous movie. With a budget of $11.5 million, the film grossed almost 8 times more – $85 million worldwide. Needless to say, the success of this production has boosted Bam Margera net worth.
Unfortunately, so far Bam’s relationships have not been as successful as his professional career. Less than a year ago he got married for the second time. The woman he took to the altar this time was Nicole Boyd from Iceland. Previously he has been engaged to a divorced mother Jenn Rivell and married to his childhood friend Melissa “Missy” Rothstein. The relationship ended in a bitter divorce, forcing Bam to indulge in binge drinking. So I guess Bam Margera net worth, as massive as it is, cannot solve all of his problems!
