What is Candace Owens' Net Worth and Salary?

Candace Owens is an American conservative commentator and political activist who has a net worth of $5 million. Candace Owens is best known for hosting the show "Candace" which airs on The Daily Wire as both a podcast and video series. Candace was liberal earlier in life but started to trend towards conservatism in 2016. She was critical of Donald Trump early in his campaign but eventually became a very vocal supporter. She is also somewhat infamous for promoting what some might call misinformation and what others might call conspiracy theories.

Early Life and Education

She was born Candace Amber Owens on April 29, 1989 in Stamford, Connecticut. She is the third of four children, and was raised by her grandparents after her parents divorced when she was around 11. As a teen, Owens went to Stamford High School. While there, she received multiple racist death threats via voicemail from white male classmates. Owens' family subsequently sued the Stamford Board of Education for failing to protect their daughter's rights, resulting in a settlement of over $37,000. For her higher education, Owens attended the University of Rhode Island as a journalism major. However, she eventually dropped out following her junior year due to a student loan problem.

Career Beginnings

After dropping out of college, Owens took an internship in New York City with Vogue magazine. Following this, she landed a job as an administrative assistant for a Manhattan private equity firm; she later became the firm's vice president of administration.

Liberal to Conservative

In 2015, Owens established her online presence as CEO of the marketing agency Degree180. On the company website, she wrote many blog pieces that derided conservative Republican figures. Owens aimed to start another website,, in 2016. However, the site, which was intended to expose online bullies by tracking their Internet activity, was highly controversial for the privacy violations it would entail. To punish Owens, Internet users started posting some of her private details online. Although she had no evidence of who was really behind the doxing attack, Owens blamed it on progressives involved in the Gamergate scandal. This garnered her the support of several prominent conservative figures also in opposition to Gamergate. Owens soon announced that she had become a conservative "overnight" as a result of this incident.

Conservative Activity

Despite having just recently excoriated him and his views, Owens began advocating for Donald Trump by the end of 2017. She started the website and YouTube channel Red Pill Black to promote "Black conservatism," and was hired as the communications director of the conservative advocacy group Turning Point USA. In 2018, Owens officially registered as a Republican, and appeared on a number of conspiracy websites.

Owens joined the Daily Wire, a conservative website and media company, in 2021. For the platform, she began hosting her own political talk show podcast called "Candace." Earlier, Owens announced that she was interested in running for office as either a governor or US senator, but that she would only run if she were facing an incumbent Democrat. Later, Owens announced that she was thinking of running for president in 2024.

Political Views

Although she identified as liberal as late as 2015, Owens described herself as a conservative and Trump advocate by 2017. She is now known as a far-right conservative. Owens has criticized the Black Lives Matter movement. She and Kanye West famously wore clothing with the slogan "White Lives Matter" to an event in November 2022.

Owens opposes abortion, feminism, trans rights, welfare programs, and immigration. She denies the reality of climate change, and has propagated the Big Lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen. In the summer of 2020, she asserted that George Soros paid people to protest George Floyd's murder. The same year, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Owens claimed that Bill Gates and the WHO were using "tribal children" to experiment with vaccines.

Christchurch Massacre

Following the mosque massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2019, it was revealed that the shooter's manifesto had mentioned Owens as the primary influence for his attack. Some found this probable due to Owens' anti-Muslim rhetoric, while others speculated that the shooter was simply being provocative to spur political conflict. Owens formally denied any connection to the shooter.

Personal Life

In 2019, Owens met and married Englishman George Farmer, the former chair of Turning Point UK. The couple had their first child, a son, in early 2021. They welcomed a daughter in July 2022. In July 2023, they announced their third child, another son. Farmer is the CEO of conservative social media app Parler.
