About Chris Pontius
In this article we are going to talk about Chris Pontius net worth, which currently amounts to $12 million. This seems like a pretty impressive sum for somebody who has been working in a relatively narrow range of projects and has not really made any grand achievements. So how Chris Pontius net worth reached its current heights? In order to answer this question we have to go back to the early 2000s.
Chris’ path to the fame started in 2000, when he debuted on TV show Jackass. He got even more popular in 2002, when Jackass: The Movie reached the cinemas. Now if you have read some reactions, you must know that most critics were not particularly into this movie. At best, their reactions were mixed: most often, the reviewers pointed out that at some point the movie is utterly disguising, but nonetheless, there is something cool and attractive about it. Personally, I loved the description by Kimberly Jones, which was printed on The Austin Chronicle: Jackass: the Movie is “”feature-length rendering of jackass the MTV show, meaning no plot, no script, just wall-to-wall idiocy” – Jones said, adding that – “It’s silly, often stomach-churning, but also awfully addictive, inspiring the same kind of vicarious adrenaline rush as Fight Club, with its ‘I bleed, therefore I am’; he-man mentality.”
Kimberly was right to point out that Jackass is not the kind of movie you could learn from (unless you are looking for new ways to piss-off your parents) and yet you just can’t stop watching it. Moreover, if any of your friends asked you whether this movie is worth the money for the ticked, I bet you would say “yes” without having to think twice. And this holds true even if you have spent half of the film covering with your eyes out of disgust; if you left the cinema shocked and disturbed. I am pretty sure that majority of people who have seen this movie during the premiere have recommended it to their friends. And those who did not enjoy it at all, must have recommended the film to their enemies (just to make them suffer), because the movie was incredibly financially successful, selling millions of tickets all over the world. Jackass: The Movie Grossed almost $80 million! Needless to say, the success of this and the following Jackass projects (such as Jackass Number Two, Jackass 2.5, Jackass 3D, Jackass 3.5 ,has) sent Chris Pontius net worth into impressive heights.
Now do you want to know how rich are the other members of Jackass team? Johnny Knoxville is enjoying his life with an estimated net worth of $75 million dollars, Wee Man -with a net worth of $12 million, Bam Margera – $45. So Chris Pontius net worth is actually the smallest one in the group!
