Steve Harvey's Net Worth: Here's how much the reality star turned housing authority makes
It looks like President-elect Donald Trump just added another member of the 1% to his team — and a fellow reality star to boot.
Family Feud and Miss Universe Pageant host Steve Harvey will team up with incoming Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on a new housing initiative, according to a tweet posted by Harvey on Friday afternoon; it's unclear whether any of the specifics have been worked out yet.
According to the Daily Beast, Harvey was a former backer of President Barack Obama's election campaign but is also a longtime fan of Trump: "I like [Trump], personally. I do! I think he's exciting for politics."
While he's not nearly as wealthy as Trump or some of the other members of his Cabinet, Harvey is surprisingly well-off thanks to a diverse range of media and endorsement projects.
He might be worth as much as $100 million, according to the Richest, which is easily enough to put him among the richest comedians — right above Ricky Gervais, who is worth a reported $90 million, according to the Observer.
In addition to a longstanding run on Family Feud — which netted him $14.5 million in 2016, according to Forbes — Harvey also locked in a multi-year deal to host Miss Universe, and a source told ET that it was "more than they've ever paid before for a host."
Harvey also has a radio show, a daytime talk show and the royalties from his book Think Like a Man, which has spawned a hit series of movies — all of which are churning out royalties.
In addition to their wealth, reality show backgrounds and shared connection to the Miss Universe Pageant, Harvey and Trump have a mutual taste for political incorrectness: Earlier this week, Harvey came under fire for a series of off-color jokes about Asian men.
