What is Ray Ramano's net worth? Meet the next guest on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' who earns a whopping amount
Our favorite comedian, Raymond Albert Romano or rather Ray Romano, as he is popularly known, is all set to come as a guest on ABC's 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' on Wednesday, January 6. In the show, a number of famous faces take the hot seat and answer trivia questions for the chance to win $1 million dollars for a charity of their choice.
Romano has also starred in the Epix series 'Get Shorty' alongside Chris O’Dowd, with that show recently wrapping its third season. Romano is best known for his starring role in the CBS sitcom 'Everybody Loves Raymond,' which ran for nine seasons and over 200 episodes. Romano won the Emmy for best actor in a comedy in 2002 for his work on the series. The series itself won best comedy series both in 2005 and 2003. He has won three Emmys and in 2019 he appeared on the silver screen in the romantic comedy 'The Big Sick.'
He now owns a nearly 10,000-plus-square-foot Mediterranean villa on more than 1.25 landscaped acres in Encino’s affluent Encino Oaks neighborhood since the 1990s, and in early 2004 he shelled out nearly $8.5 million for an oceanfront residence with two guesthouses on Malibu’s Broad Beach.
When he was working in 'Everybody Loves Raymond,' his salary per episode for the first four seasons wasn't known but starting in season 5 he earned $800,000 per episode. He made $800,000 per episode, which is roughly $19 million per season, in seasons 5, 6 and 7. That's $57 million from these three seasons. If you assume he made just $300,000 for the first four seasons, that would be an additional $30 million.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, his net worth stands at $200 million. For the last two seasons, he earned a whopping $1.75 million per episode. Which made him the highest-paid television actor in history up to that point. His record was broken in 2019 when both Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon earned $2 million apiece per episode of 'The Morning Show'. However, Ray's $1.75 million is the same as around $2.3 million per episode today.
