'Saturday Night Live' star Chris Kattan has a new gig, and this time it's with a bunch of known names in 'Celebrity Big Brother' Season 3. The latest installment is all set to premiere this February on CBS and was seen as a way of counterprogramming the 2022 Winter Olympics. Julie Chen Moonves returns as host while Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan serve as executive producers. Kattan is one of the 11 contestants entering the house on Day 1.
For those unaware, Kattan gained recognition for his work on NBC's 'SNL' and went on to star in TV and movies. His career in showbiz started when he signed up with a comedy troupe in Los Angeles. He also starred in minor blink-and-miss roles. The big break came when he moved to New York for 'SNL' and was a main cast member between 1996-2003. His portrayal of Mango and one of the nightclubbing Butabi Brothers with Will Ferrell was well-received by the audience making a breakout star.
When coupled with stints in TV shows and movies, Kattan's net worth becomes a topic of discussion, and ahead of the reality show's premiere and his run, here's a quick look at how much he's worth.

What is Chris Kattan's net worth?
Following his successful stint with 'SNL, Kattan moved to a lot of TV work and was even the face in commercials. Fans will remember him from the Diet Pepsi Max commercial that was released during Super Bowl XLII in 2008 and saw the stars crooning and dancing to 'What is Love' — a nod to 'A Night at the Roxbury'. He also starred as a guest in an episode of 'How I Met Your Mother'. Per Celebrity Net Worth, Kattan is estimated to be worth $6 million. This number does seem doubtful considering he's made more appearances in recent times.
With his time in 'Celebrity Big Brother', it's safe to say that he will walk away richer if he spends considerable time at the house. The official synopsis reads, "CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER follows a group of celebrities living together in a house outfitted with over 80 HD cameras and over 100 microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day and having no contact with the outside world. Each week, one or more Celebrity Houseguests will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $250,000. CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER is produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America."
'Celebrity Big Brother' Season 3 premieres February 2, 8/7c on CBS.
