Regis Philbin has to be one of the most beloved public figures with a net worth as high as it is. How does someone so nice attain a net worth of approximately 70 million dollars? To find the answer, you could do worse than to study the career of talk/game show host Regis Philbin. His career in show business began as a page at The Tonight Show in the 1950s. From there, he worked his way up the show business ladder, as a writer, announcer, and guest host on various talk shows. By 1962, he was working as an announcer on The Tonight Show. Eventually, he got his own show, creatively entitled The Regis Philbin. One of Regis' trademarks, the "host chat" segment, was born on this show, but not for the reason you might expect – the reason he had to fill time by simply "chatting" with the audience was because there was no money to pay a writing staff! Regis's first national audience came from his time on The Joey Bishop Show, where he made waves as Bishop's onscreen sidekick. As time went on, Regis eventually found his niche on Live with Regis & Kathy Lee, a morning chat show featuring Philbin and co-host Kathy Lee Gifford. Now entitled Live with Regis & Kelly, the show continues to be successful with new co-host Kelly Rippa. Regis' other big success comes from the megahit game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? With Regis' perennially popular catchphrase "is that your final answer?" still being talked about today. One of TV's most long-running success stories, Regis Philbin also holds the world record for most hours spent on camera in a lifetime.
