TLC introduced fans to Amy Halterman (née Slaton) and Tammy Slaton from Dixon, Kentucky, on the reality series 1000-Lb Sisters, following two siblings trying to support each other amid their respective weight loss journeys. The show has continued to gain popularity, and season 4 is set to premiere on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Find out their net worths and how much TLC pays them.
What Is Amy Slaton’s Net Worth and How Does She Make Money?
The mom of two reportedly has a net worth of around $250,000, per Market Realist. In addition to her TV appearances, Amy has a growing YouTube channel that she often posts to with more than 520,000 subscribers. The reality star also does Cameos, which are personalized messages for fans, at $20 per message.
Although neither Amy nor Tammy have disclosed how much they earn per episode of the show, it’s speculated the figure could be relative to other stars on the small screen.
“For those docu-ensembles, especially if they’re nobodies, per episode it ranges from low-end, like $1,500 an episode, to $3,000 at the high end,” Business Insider reported. “And then after three years of success, it can go up to $7,000 to $10,000 an episode. After that, you start moving into the Kardashian level.”
What Is Tammy Slaton’s Net Worth and How Does She Make Money?
According to multiple reports, Tammy has an estimated net worth of $100,000. It is theorized her earnings are less due to having a smaller YouTube following than Amy with nearly 150,000 subscribers on the video sharing platform.
Like her sibling, Tammy has appeared on three seasons of the show. Chris Combs, their brother, even shared a big update in his sister’s weight loss journey on the finale in January 2022, revealing that Tammy lost 115 pounds while away at a nursing rehab facility.
“I’m glad Tammy is finally getting the help she needs,” Amy said about her sister’s accomplishment. “I just wanted the best for all my siblings.”
Tammy famously got married while in the rehab facility. Her wedding to husband Caleb Willingham in November 2022 is set to be featured in the upcoming season of the show.
