'7 Little Johnstons': What is Amber and Trent Johnston's net worth? A look at the family's paycheck per episode
Here's how much money the endearing heads of the Johnston family have amassed over the years and their paycheck from their TLC show
'7 Little Johnstons' Season 8 premiered last week with a fun episode. The little big family, the largest known family of achondroplasic dwarfs were seen engaged in a number of TikTok challenges and we had tears thinking about the fact that we could have missed out on all this gold if the app would be banned in the country. The episode also did shed light on the romantic relationships of Jonah Johnston, the somewhat troubled kid of the family. He has been dating Ashley for a while and the family complained a little about how he was so amazing to her yet to them he behaved "like a turd".
Then Brice Bolden's relationship with Elizabeth too was a highlight of the episode. He said 'I love you' to her very casually and we did notice a shift in energy in Elizabeth and we hope that the two do last because they make a really cute couple.
Also, a part of the episode was the relationship of the family heads Amber and Trent Johnston. The two have been together a very long time and they were left seeking options for activities they could use to spice things in the bedroom. They were seen taking a pole dance class with Lane Wonder in the episode and how the rest of their attempts fare and what else they indulge in will unfold in the coming episodes. Since we are on the topic of Amber and Trent, we'd like to reiterate the fact that the two refuse to take any financial help from the government to raise their family consisting of their two biological and three adoptive kids, all achondroplasic dwarfs. Both of them have a day job, Trent is a grounds supervisor at a local educational institute in their city while Amber was a real estate agent but in the recent season she took up the job of a computer instructor at a school.
In 2017, reality TV producer Terence Michael revealed to E! News in an interview that the families who are featured on shows like ‘7 Little Johnstons’ are typically paid around 10 percent of the show’s budget. This means that a few years ago, the Johnstons could have been bringing in somewhere in the range of $25,000 to $40,000 per episode, according to a report. Their show has seen a massive increase in its popularity meaning that the amount on the family's paycheck has definitely gone higher but details for the same are unavailable from TLC's end.
As for Trent and Amber's net worth, their combined wealth is estimated close to $3 million. In 2019, the Johnstons moved into their dream home after the Johnston parents splurged and purchased one in Forsyth, Georgia. The family home spread across 10 acres, stretches down to the Towaliga River also features a swimming pool as well as big gardens. The 3,660 square feet home features four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The home in the midst of the woods and a serene meadow also features over 450 feet of pristine sandy riverbank next to it. As of early 2020, the new home is valued at approximately $486,000.
