Working man! Sister Wives star Kody Brown is a father of 18, and before his starring role on the TLC reality show, he was making money in a different way.
What Is ‘Sister Wives’ Star Kody Brown’s Job?
When Sister Wives first premiered in 2010, Kody was working as the president of Das Hundhaus Firearms and Accessories, In Touch previously confirmed. The company has since closed.
While Kody has not opened up about his current job on the show, his son Paedon Brown revealed via TikTok in March 2022 that Kody does work outside of the show. Paedon didn’t share what Kody’s job is, though he did mention that the line of work could be considered controversial.
Following months of speculation about the reality star’s job, one fan spotted Kody working at a booth at a gun show in April 2022. They took to Facebook and Reddit to share photos from the Tulsa, Oklahoma, event, which showed the Wyoming native standing at a table full of guns, ammo and accessories.
In Touch confirmed in December 2022 that Kody is a member of the supply company U.S. Tactical LLC, which would effectively allow him to buy and sell sporting goods in Utah.
“From what I have seen, he tends to say that he’s investing in things and I think he might just be uncomfortable with admitting he’s like, in the gun business,” she revealed in a February 2023 Q&A session on her YouTube channel. “Because of the political conflict about it.”
How Else Does Kody Brown Make Money?
The Brown family patriarch also makes money by filming Cameo videos for fans. According to his page, Kody charges $149 for personalized videos and $420 for “company, customers, or employees” videos.
Another source of income for Kody comes from his appearances on the reality show. It is not clear how much money the Brown family takes home from appearing on the show, though reality producer Terence Michael has estimated that reality families earn about 10 percent of a show’s per-episode budget.
The network is said to spend anywhere between $250,000 and $400,000 per episode on its shows, meaning that the Browns take in between $25,000 to $40,000. The show has aired 16 seasons as of September 2022, which means that Kody and his wives have earned, at minimum, over $4 million from the show.
Season 18 of Sister Wives premiered in August 2023.

Meanwhile, his fourth wife, Robyn Brown, has an estimated net worth of $600,000. Meri, Janelle and Christine all have approximate net worths of $400,000 each.
