Money in the bank! 90 Day Fiancé star Gino Palazzolo has an unexpectedly high net worth so high he’s decided to leave his job for “maybe a year” following his fiancée Jasmine Pineda’s arrival in the United States. Fans are curious what the TLC personality does for a living while living in Michigan.
What Is ’90 Day Fiance’ Star Gino’s Net Worth?
According to multiple outlets, Gino’s net worth is estimated to be about $1.5 million between his job and his investments.
Prior to Jasmine coming to the States, Gino showed off his financial freedom when he offered to pay for the mom of two’s apartment in Panama.
“She had a roommate previously, but she had trouble in that situation and she couldn’t afford her own place, so I offered to pay for this apartment,” Gino explained. “We pulled the trigger pretty quick on because I want her to be comfortable and happy until I can get us through the K-1 process and bring Jasmine to the U.S.A.”
He continued, “The amount of money I’m gonna be helping Jasmine with her apartment is a lot of money for me right now because I’m not working. I have to pay all my bills back in the U.S.A. and my rent and then help Jasmine here in Panama. I know it’s only a temporary thing, but the K-1 visa process could take a long time so, I’m a little worried about that.”
How Does ’90 Day Fiance’ Star Gino Make Money?
During their 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 5 debut in December 2021, Gino flexed additional income when he revealed he held a hefty investment portfolio.
“I have a lot of investments,” Gino explained of his finances in a confessional. “I buy and sell my own stock and my value hit like, $650,000 or something like that. But that’s basically money for our retirement, so I don’t want to touch any of that right now.”
Apart from his career in engineering, Gino also earns a paycheck for his appearances on the 90 Day Fiancé franchise. Gino and Jasmine starred on seasons 5 and 6 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, before making their debut on 90 Day Fiancé season 10 in October 2023.

According to Glassdoor, yearly salaries can range from $75,055 to $325,111. Since he most likely would receive a mid- to higher-end of the salary range thanks to his 20-plus years of experience in his field, it seemed he was able to find a job that would help him financially support both himself and Jasmine.
However, after Jasmine’s K-1 visa was approved, Gino revealed that he planned on leaving his job for “maybe a year” to help Jasmine settle in her new home in the States. The TLC personality admitted he was anxious about her reaction to him not working as he felt Jasmine had become “spoiled” and the “taste of reality” she’d feel once in Michigan.
“I want to give Jasmine everything she wants,” he explained prior to her arrival, on the premiere episode of 90 Day Fiancé season 10 in October 2023. “I’m a little worried about telling Jasmine that I quit my job because Jasmine likes to live the luxury good life and if I don’t have any income or money, oh my God, Jasmine’s going to kill me.”

Gino has been open about his problems regarding Jasmine’s spending, though their disagreement hit a new high during the October 22, 2023, episode when Jasmine revealed that she had a butt lift.
“We could have used that $10,000, our wedding and all the appliances we need to replace, and all the home remodeling you want to do,” he responded. “You don’t even need it.”
Jasmine then explained that she paid for the surgery with her savings and the money Gino gave her to buy her wedding dress.
“I’ve helped Jasmine out a lot since I’ve met her, helping her pay her rent, money for her children, cosmetic procedures,” he said in a confessional. “And I’ve been doing that because I love her and I know she needs the help and she’s not really working right now, but feels like I’m the one that’s always giving. I give, give, give, and Jasmine’s just like, taking, taking. That’s terrifying kind of to me because, you know, is this how my life’s going to be?”
