The Jonas Brothers are back, although let’s be real: Did they ever truly leave? Nick, Joe, and poor, sweet, tenderhearted Kevin are dominating charts thanks to their new single “Sucker” (and their new-new single “Cool”), and, like, they’re not doing all this sh*t for free, okay? The Jonas Brothers are racking up cash almost as fast as they’re racking up YouTube views. Honestly, they might as well change their name to the Filthy Rich Brothers.
Speaking of, aren’t you a little curious about who’s the filthy richest brother? Yeah, same. Because while the Jonas Brothers presumably split their band income evenly (KEVIN BETTER BE GETTING HIS FAIR SHARE), they’ve also had individual careers. Like, look at Nick: He puts out solo music, dabbles in the fine art of #SponCon, and even acts. Meanwhile, Joe is in his own band DNCE, and Kevin is a professional earth angel and daddy. So, who makes the most money? Before we get into the nitty-gritty of everyone’s individual net worth, it should be noted that the Jonas Brothers collectively earned a fortune during their heyday as Disney’s go-to boi group. From 2009 to 2010 alone, they earned $35.5 million and a spot on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list. And People reports that they earned $12 million in 2007 from a combination of album sales, merchandise sales (is it even worth getting dressed if you’re not in a JoBros shirt?), and touring.
Net Worth: $25 million
Move over, DNCE, because Nick Jonas was also in a band. They were called Nick Jonas and the Administration, and to be honest, how dare you not already know that?!?!?!?! Anyway, as you’ve probably guessed, this venture wasn’t super profitable for our buddy Nick, but it’s cool because he went on to star in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which, according to Box Office Mojo, was the fourth highest-grossing movie in 2017. So yeah, Nick’s made some major coin—thanks in part to several solo albums that resulted in some pretty solid digital single sales.
But honestly, guys, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the key to Nick’s growing bank account has a lot to do with his relationship with brands. Like, this dude sponcon’d his freaking bachelor party:[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/Bp942lpF8rb/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_medium=loading[/instagram] [instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/BqBBtEWF32p/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_medium=loading[/instagram]
And his relationship with this particular vodka brand ^ is so strong that he even used its product in the video for “Sucker.” He knows what he’s doing...to the tune of $25 million.
Net Worth: $20 million
So, wondering how he could possibly have more money than Joe? Oh, IDK, maybe it has something to do with the fact that he and his wife, Danielle, had their very own E! reality show for two seasons:
Or maybe it has to do with the fact that he was on Celebrity Apprentice, founded his own real estate company called JonasWerner, and is the damn CEO of a communications company for social media influencers. Yeah. That’s right. Kevin did that.
Also, Kevin—like Nick—is living his best sponcon life. He! Will! Shill! For! Swiffer!
Net Worth: $18 million
Kay, so he’s not exactly poor, but Joe Jonas isn’t making as much money as his brothers. This might have something to do with the fact that DNCE, while wildly popular, is a band. Meaning, he had to share the money made on the bop “Cake by the Ocean” with other people.
Also, he’s not quite as thirsty for sponsored content as his brothers. Although moments like this probably pay pretty well:
