Apart from her appearances on the long-running series, the mom of six has generated other forms of income after splitting apart from the polygamous family

What Is Christine Brown’s Net Worth?

When Did ‘Sister Wives’ Star Christine Brown Make Her Debut on TLC?

Christine has appeared on the TLC show since it first aired in September 2010 — and while a lot has changed since those early days, she continues to receive a steady paycheck from the network.

The series follows Kody Brown and his polygamist family, including former wives Meri Brown and Janelle Brown and remaining wife Robyn Brown. Christine shocked fans in November 2021 when she announced she was leaving her husband, whom she had been spiritually married to for 27 years. In Touch exclusively broke the news that Janelle had also left the businessman in December 2022, while Meri and Kody confirmed their split in a joint Instagram post in January 2023.

Despite the family shakeup, Christine’s split from Kody was filmed for season 17. The ongoing drama and tension between the polygamist patriarch and his former wives also served as a main storyline for the show’s most recent season, which began airing in August 2023. Christine has continued to star on the show despite her split from Kody.

How Much Does Christine Brown Earn on ‘Sister Wives’?

Though it is not confirmed how much Christine earns to film Sister Wives, she takes home enough to live comfortably in Utah. 

“For those docu-ensembles, especially if they’re nobodies, per episode it ranges from low-end, like $1,500 an episode, to $3,000 at the high end,” Business Insider reported. “And then after three years of success, it can go up to $7,000 to $10,000 an episode. After that, you start moving into the Kardashian level.”

The family earns about 10 percent of the show’s per-episode budget, according to CheatSheet 

TLC reportedly spends around $250,000 to $400,000 on every episode, meaning the Brown family receives about $25,000 to $40,000 to split among them. It’s estimated that the show has made around $3 million since 2010, meaning that the Brown family receives about $365,000 annually. However, keep in mind the Brown family extends further than Kody, his wives and Christine — there are more than 20 family members

It has also been reported the family took a pay cut to keep the show on the air after low ratings. 

How Else Does ‘Sister Wives’ Star Christine Brown Make Money?

The TLC star launched a legal business, CBrown Quest, LLC, in May 2020, according to the Arizona Corporation Commission. It is unknown what the business does at this time, but the entity status is active as of publication.  

Christine is also a LuLaRoe retailer and a Plexus ambassador alongside daughter Mykelti Padron (née Brown), as well as Janelle and her daughter, Maddie Brush (née Brown).

Additionally, she does Cameos to connect with fans, charging $50 for a personalized video and $350 for a business video.

Christine Brown Sold Her Portion of Coyote Pass To Kody Brown and Robyn Brown

One of the major points of contention between the polygamous family was finding their permanent home base. Following moving from their four homes in a cul-de-sac in Las Vegas to Flagstaff, Arizona, in 2018, the family bought a spacious plot of land in hopes of building a new residence.

While Kody ideally wanted to build one large house for his entire family, he was met with resistance by his four wives. Instead, the patriarch divided the land into four to be able to build four separate houses. However, the Browns have faced countless delays and as of August 2022, In Touch can confirm no building permits have yet been filed for the property. 

Following Christine’s split from Kody, she washed her hands of the property. On August 9, 2022, In Touch confirmed that Christine sold back her portion of the land plot to her ex-husband and sister wife Robyn for only $10.

Capping off her love story, Christine and David officially tied the knot — with cameras present — on October 7, 2023, in a gorgeous Utah wedding. “She wants to be able to wear a white dress and walk down the aisle with her dad,” David told People following the couple’s wedding. “She never got to do on her first marriage. She wants all the bells and whistles.”
