Chris Harrison net worth is currently estimated at $12 million and this makes him one of the richest television hosts in America. I am sure that most of you associate his name and face with popular television show The Bachelor and its spin-offs and I think it is only natural: after all, Harrison has been already hosting it for more than ten years. But there has been much more going on in his life recently. On the one hand, the last few years must have been pretty difficult for the star: in 2012 he underwent a divorce from a high school sweet heart and a wife of 18 year. On the other hand, he has recently landed two new jobs as a TV host and released his first book (which is expected to increase Chris Harrison net worth significantly). After so many years working on the same show (and it‘s spin-offs) the change must have been really exciting!

But how did this millionaire started his professional career? Chris Harrison net worth started to grow in 1993, as he started working as sports reporter at CBS affiliate KWTV in Oklahoma City. He remained in this position until 1999. After leaving KWTV Chris has briefly worked on a horse raising channel TVG Network and HGTV, where he hosted Designer‘s Challenge. A breakthrough in his career came up in the early 2000s, as Harrison received an offer to host a dating reality show The Bachelor. In one of the interviews the star has revealed that at first he did not actually like the idea of hosting this show so much: he only planned to stay in this position for several hours. To put it another way, Chris was expecting to use the opportunity to meet people working on ABC in order to find another, „real“ job. However, he has been hosting this show until just recently.
In 2011 Chris started hosting another show, You Deserve It. This change in his career almost coincided with a dramatic change in his personal life: Chris decided it is time two part ways with his wife and the mother of his children, Gwen Harrison. In the common statement the couple has claimed: “Though we have made this incredibly difficult decision to separate, our love and mutual respect remain, and we look forward to sharing in the lives of our wonderful children.” Speaking about the current sources of Chris Harrison net worth, he has recently released a book titled The Perfect Letter. When asked to describe it, the star said that it is „an extension of my brand (…) It’s romance. It’s love. It’s a story. It’s a journey. It’s escapism. It has also been announced that Chris is going to be a host of the syndicated version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? for the 2015-16 season.
