Chris Hardwick’s’ Net Worth
Chris Hardwick’s age is 45 and he’s already reached a net worth that’s estimated at $10.0 million! He’s most famous for hosting The Talking Dead and currently the late night show @Midnight. Now, he’s the host of his own show on AMC called “Talking With Chris Hardwick,” where they discuss much more than The Walking Dead! He’s also a stand-up comedian and Nerdist CEO. In other words, he’s just as busy as Ryan Seacrest, but with less money—but that doesn’t mean they can’t afford the same custom made suits!
Chris Hardwick’s Wife
In 2016, Hardwick married actress Lydia Hearst, 32, (Patricia Hearst’s daughter) in Pasadena, California. They exchanged vows in front of 450 guests, some of which included Olivia Munn, Connie Britton, Whitney Cummings, Michael Sheen, Sarah Silverman, Yvette Nicole Brown, James Corden, Craig Ferguson and more. They had two officiants (Rev. Edward Dumke and actress Jaime King) and Hearst wore a pink custom made Christian Siriano wedding gown, while Hardwick wore a custom made navy Prada suit.
Before the big day, Hearst told People, that she expected to be “blissfully happy.”
“I could never have envisioned a more perfect wedding day,” she said. “It’s better and more magical than I could have ever dreamed of … It’s going to be perfect, and even if it isn’t that’s how it was meant to be. I’m more excited than anything else!”
America‘s Got Talent
Remember when we said Hardwick was like Seacrest? Well, the comedian-TV host is a guest judge on Tuesday’s new episode of AGT. The show is moving into its next phase and now it’s time for the judges to make some cuts. Hardwick is also hard at work as the host for NBC’s The Wall, and will be helping the judges make a few cuts to the talent over the next few weeks. Hardwick gets a Golden Buzzer just like the other judges, so that means he has just as much power as the others. Who do you think he will give the instant save to? Over the course of the next three episodes, more celebrities (including Orange Is the New Black‘s Laverne Cox, DJ Khaled and Heidi Klum’s ex-husband Seal) will also be making appearances on the hit talent show.
