What does ‘Sister Wives’ star Kody Brown do for a living?


Kody Brown, the patriarch of the Brown family in the reality TV show “Sister Wives,” has predominantly gained income from the show itself. While the exact details of his other sources of income are not explicitly disclosed, various bits of information suggest alternative professions he might have pursued.

Primarily, Kody earns a considerable portion of his income through his role as a reality TV star on “Sister Wives.” It’s estimated that the Brown family, including Kody, receives around ten percent of the show’s budget, which translates to roughly $25,000 to $40,000 per episode. Given his position as the family patriarch and central figure of the show, it’s presumed that Kody likely earns a significant portion of this payment.

Before his appearance on “Sister Wives,” Kody reportedly worked in the online advertising industry as a salesman, earning approximately $4,000 per month. Additionally, prior to this, he was the President of Das Hundhaus Firearms and Accessories, although the details of his role in this business remain limited.


In April, Kody’s son Paedon revealed through TikTok that his father worked at a booth at a gun show. A photo posted on social media depicted Kody standing at a table with guns, seemingly confirming Paedon’s claims. This disclosure has stirred concern among certain viewers, as his role as a public figure in reality TV might potentially influence viewers, especially those susceptible to impressionable content related to firearms.

Kody has also contributed to the family brand by co-authoring a book titled “Becoming Sister Wives: The Story of an Unconventional Marriage.” This book provides an inside perspective on the dynamics and experiences of a polygamous relationship, offering insight into their unconventional lifestyle.

As for his estimated net worth, Kody and his wives are believed to have a combined net worth of around $4 million, with Kody individually estimated to possess $800,000, as reported by Celebrity Net Worth. However, it’s important to note that net worth does not directly equate to liquid assets or cash in hand, leaving specifics about his current earnings somewhat unclear.
