Drake Bell Net Worth is $575 Million (as of 2019)
Recently, there has been a huge buzz around Drake Bell net worth, as it appeared to be negative. No, this is not some sort of mistake – apparently, the star singer and actor is about $600 thousand in debt! This is shocking, having in mind that just a couple of years ago Drake Bell net worth amounted to millions of dollars! How did he earn this money (I am referring to money that has already evaporated) and how messed up he actually is today? We are going to answer both of these questions in the following paragraphs.
|Net Worth:||$575 Million|
Drake debuted on television with Home Improvement in 1994 and went on to appear on variety of other shows, including Minor Adjustments, Men Behaving Badly, Over the Top, The Drew Carey Show and Caroline in the City. But it was only in 1999 that he was finally invited to join the main cast of some television series, and the series was titled The Amanda Show. Bell has spent three years playing various roles on this American live action comedy and the audience loved him. Nothing proves this last claim as well as the fact that two years after the end of The Amanda Show Dan Schneider (the creator) invited Drake to star on another one of his projects, Drake & Josh.
Not only Drake & Josh was popular among the teenage audience, it has also received positive critical evaluation: 8.8/10 on TV.com, and a very high 7.4/10 from reviews on imdb.com. Moreover, Dan claimed that at least among the general audience the series were most popular during the 4th season. Why, then, it ended right after it? Apparently, this was the will of the creative forces behind the show. Even though Drake & Josh did not run for very long, the show and spin-off films ( Drake & Josh Go Hollywood and Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh) made a solid contribution to the Drake Bell net worth. The success of the show has also boosted the sales of the two albums the actor has released during the period 2004-2007, Telegraph and It‘s Only Time. Back in the day the profits from his music career has constituted a considerable part of the overall Drake‘s income.
A lot of things have changed since Drake has starred in the television series and recorded popular songs. Even though the last of his albums, Ready, Steady, Go!, has experienced a relative commercial success, in the early 2010s his overall income has decreased dramatically. Drake earned $408,000 in 2012, but in just $14,000 in 2013. His house is worth some $1.575 million, but his debt on the mortgage is $1.6 million. Unless Drake Bell net worth starts growing again really soon, he will face some serious problems!
