Jeremy Clarkson net worth and salary: Jeremy Clarkson is an English television presenter who has a net worth of $50 million. Jeremy Clarkson was born on April 11, 1960 in Doncaster, West Riding of Yorkshire, England. He is most widely known as the host of the internationally acclaimed sports car show Top Gear. Top Gear is consistently one of the most viewed television shows in the world. When you add international replays, an estimated 350 million people tune in to each episode. Considering the show's reach, Clarkson's Top Gear salary is a surprisingly modest $4 million per year. But don't feel too bad for Jeremy. In addition to his base salary, Clarkson actually owned 30% of the rights to Top Gear. That means he gets a cut of profits from all licensing deals, DVD sales, syndication and merchandise. On top of his base salary, Clarkson typically earns an additional $7.5 – $13 million per year in dividends and bonuses from the show. In 2013, the BBC (which already owned 50% of the show) bought out all outstanding stakes to take full control of the Top Gear Empire. This transaction netted Clarkson roughly $21 million.
