Aussie actor Daniel Goddard did well when he moved to the States. He got to experience the soap scene both in his homeland on “Home and Away” and in the U.S. on “The Young and the Restless”.
The latter show turned out to be the main money maker in his life (with a $16.7 million net worth that sounds like a pretty sweet deal). He participated in the show for 12 years and more than 1,000 episodes!
David Hasselhoff | The Young and the Restless | $10 Million
Blue eyes, perpetually tanned skin, and shoulders broad enough to land a helicopter on — David Hasselhoff has got it all. And when you have it all, you are bound to get snatched by a soap opera at some point.
"The Hoff" was indeed snatched by the soap opera "The Young and the Restless". He put his assets to work and played Dr. William Foster (AKA Snapper) for several years. His current net worth of $10 million can put him through actual medical school if he ever thinks about a career change.
Eric Braeden | The Young and the Restless | $25 Million
He’s written a book, done film, television, and has starred in daytime drama since he stepped foot in Genoa City, about 40 years ago, but most of you will know him simply as Victor Newman from "The Young and the Restless".
The man and his famous mustache have been on the show from 1980 to 2020, garnering a net worth of $25 million, which made him one of the highest-paid soap opera actors in America, and possibly the world.
Peter Bergman | The Young and the Restless | $10 Million
The Genoa City of "The Young and the Restless" would be a really boring place without Jack Abbott. The man who breathed life into the character is Peter Bergman and he has done it for nearly 3,000 episodes stretched across four decades!
He first assumed the position in 1989. Since then, he won two Emmys for his role and was nominated for more than 20 of them. All that recognition comes with a side of a hefty $10 million net worth. Sounds delicious.
John Aniston | Days of Our Lives | $10 Million
The late John Aniston's main achievements in life were bringing Jennifer Aniston into this world and playing a substantial role in "Days of Our Lives". Aniston's character was named Victor Kiriakis. It was first introduced on screen in 1985.
35 years and $10 million later, Aniston was one of the most famous faces on TV during the 1980s and 1990, and he will be remembered as a pioneer of this generation.
