Gabrielle Union was only on America’s Got Talent for one season, but she no doubt brought in some big bucks. But how does that compare to the earnings of the shows newest judge, Sofia Vergara?
Was Sofia Vergara Or Gabrielle Union Paid More On ‘AGT’?
Sofia actually tops the list this year of the world’s highest-paid actresses. She reportedly raked in about $43 million. After starring on the hit show Modern Family for 11 seasons, Sofia came to America’s Got Talent in her first ever experience as a judge. She has her own clothing line sold at Walmart which has no doubt increased her earnings this year. This along with working with Pepsi and Covergirl has obviously helped her bring in some major cash.
As for Sofia’s paycheck from America’s Got Talent, she is believed to have made $10 million for her first season as a judge. This has no doubt contributed to Sofia’s estimated net worth of around $180 million. During the last few years of Modern Family, Sofia made $500,000 per episode which also added up to about $10 million per season. So ‘AGT’ pretty much matched her Modern Family salary when it came time for her to make her debut on the talent competition.
There are no clear numbers released regarding how much Gabrielle made during her time on America’s Got Talent. However, it is assumed that she made $12 million dollars for the entire season. There is no definite answer as of now but Gabrielle has had a successful film career starting from a young age and has a net worth estimated to be around $40 million.
Will Sofia Return As A Judge Next Season?
Everyone fell in love with Sofia even more during her time on America’s Got Talent this season. It was a rather unconventional season of the show with Simon Cowell’s injury and the coronavirus pandemic totally throwing everyone for a loop. But, the Colombian beauty still did a good job as a first-time judge and we would love to see her come back.
Sofia initially replaced Gabrielle who was fired and came out with allegations against the show for a “toxic work environment.” She has since settled a lawsuit with NBC after filing a formal complaint mentioning high-level execs that allegedly inflicted racism and threats upon her.
