Amy Slaton’s weight loss journey has shown its ups and downs, from trying to get pregnant to dropping the pounds to help her fertility. Since starting 1000-lb Sisters, her net worth has been off the charts. Amy and Sister Tammy Slaton were first introduced as the 1,000-pound sisters, hence the show’s title. They threw away all their junk food in the hope of losing weight and improving their lifestyle.
Two years later, Amy Slaton has achieved her original goal weight and has even been approved for bariatric surgery. Amy is now mum to her son Gabe and her appearance on the reality TV show has certainly helped her earn money. Amy’s YouTube channel and disability benefits brought her a living before the 1000-lb Sisters.
Coming from a financially unstable background, the Slaton sisters have previously revealed on TLC that their complex health conditions make it difficult to find work.
While some viewers assumed they would receive disability benefits because of their weight, Amy receives the money because she is legally blind. She was born with an eye condition that severely reduced the functionality of her eyes. YouTube ads and the growing popularity of the social media site also brought in an income, but it’s nothing compared to the dollar amount she earns from TLC!
1000-lb Sisters: Amy Slaton’s Net Worth
A 1,000-pound sister has a combined net worth of $350,000, but Amy has the most, $250,000. That’s probably because they kept a YouTube channel for much longer.
Her net worth is expected to increase over time, especially if the sisters get to 1000-lb Sisters in their third year, thus leading to a possible salary increase.
We can estimate that she earns around $7,000 to $10,000 per episode, which is how much members of the cast of Little People Big World get, as reported by Business Insider. The publication says: “Per episode it ranges from low-end, like $1,500 an episode, to $3,000 at the high end. Then after three years of success, it can go up to $7,000 to $10,000 an episode. After that, you start moving into Kardashian level.”
Add to her TLC salary the fact that she earns money through merchandise, YouTube and Cameo personalised videos, and you have a wealthy reality star!
