TYRA Banks rose to prominence for her fashion campaigns and stints on reality TV.
The Emmy Award-winning star was an executive on Dancing With the Stars and the creator of America’s Next Top Model.
What is Tyra Banks’ net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Tyra Banks amassed an estimated fortune of $90million.
Having had success in her career as a model, Banks has also piled up millions from flipping properties in Los Angeles and hosting her reality TV show America’s Next Top Model.
Her net worth has also accumulated from having various roles in films such as Disney’s Life Size (2000) and Coyote Ugly (2000).
Banks became the host of America’s Next Top Model in 2003 and went on to host her own talk show, The Tyra Banks Show, from 2005 through 2010.
In her early days of modeling, Banks was reportedly rejected by four modeling agencies before being signed to L.A. Models.
Eventually, Banks made it to Milan once she signed with Paris-based agency, Elite Model Management.
She was the first African-American woman to be featured on the covers of GQ and Sports Illustrated.
From 1997 to 2005, she was one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels and one of the world’s highest-paid models by the early half of the latter decade.
On July 14, 2020, Tyra signed on to host season 29 of Dancing With the Stars.
She presented and produced the program for three seasons.
On March 17, 2023, the VS alum announced she would not be returning to host DWTS season 32.
Tyra told TMZ: “I think it’s time. I think my heart and soul are into my business. It’s also into producing TV.
“I really, really want to focus on my business and you can’t do that while hosting a show.”
How many homes does Tyra Banks own?
Flipping property is one of the many ways Banks generates her income.
Within two years, she purchased five properties in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles.
She also owns a 7,000-square-foot duplex in Manhattan, built with its own salon and gym.
The property was listed for sale in 2017 for $17.5 million but has yet to be sold.
Previous host Tom Bergeron’s salary could be what Banks was making as International Business Times reports, “Bergeron’s salary was $150,000 an episode. An 11-episode season would then earn him $1.65M at a time, and when the show was airing two seasons a year, that number would rise to a whopping $3.3M.”
At one time, Banks was the highest-paid woman in all of primetime TV.
In fact, it was rumored that production couldn’t afford to produce ANTM because her salary request was so high.
