What is Gil and Kelly Bates’ 2021 net worth? Bringing Up Bates fans often wonder how the couple is able to afford all of the expenses that come with raising 19 children. Read on to get all of the details about the couple’s net worth and learn how they make their money.
Fans assume that most of the Bates family’s money comes from their UPtv show. We don’t know exactly how much they make per episode. However, the Duggar family’s show 19 Kids & Counting brought in an estimated $25,000 to $40,000 per episode. Because UPtv is much smaller than TLC and the Bates aren’t quite as well known as the Duggars, it’s safe to assume they make less than that per episode of the show.
With many of Gil and Kelly’s kids being grown, it’s unclear how they divvy up the money. All of the Gil and Kelly’s kids appear to be living comfortably, based on what is shown on social media.
However, the Bates family doesn’t rely solely on UPtv for income. Many of them are entrepreneurial and have their own businesses. For example, several of the Bates sisters have come together to run the Bates Sisters Boutique. Michaela and Brandon Keilen sell handmade baby blankets.
Gil & Kelly Bates 2021 Net Worth
According to Wealthy Persons, Gil is worth an estimated $500,000. So, it seems like the father to 19 is pretty well off. He has had several business ventures that appear to supplement his UPtv income. Gil has his own excavating business, Bates Tree Service. Some of his sons work alongside him. The Bringing Up Bates father is also a pastor at his family’s church, so he makes some money from that role as well.
So, Gil and Kelly have many different ways to bring in an income. The whole Bates family seems to be doing well, partially due to their UPtv show. The family’s show will return early next year for its 11th season, though the family is currently under fire for a controversial video circulating online. Fans have been calling on UPtv to cancel the series, but it’s unclear if that will truly affect the family’s show.
