Her next mixtape, WAVES, didn’t take long to come and she went on to drop a slew of singles, including Been On Ft. French Montana in 2016.
Chanel eventually dropped her first studio album, America’s Sweetheart in October 2020 and it was well received by fans.
The exact portion of the entertainer’s income that accrues from her career in the music industry is not known, but it is said to be a tidy sum.
TV Shows Constitute one of Her Major Income Sources
Since she debuted on the entertainment scene, Chanel has recorded appearances on the sets of many shows on television. Her first gig on TV was witnessed when she joined the hosts of the Fantasy Factory and reportedly, she was paid $81,000, which is quite huge for a first-timer.
Chanel’s gig on New Music Live made her $108,230 richer and she raked in $174,000 for hosting the show Wild Grinders. She was also part of other TV shows like The Hard Times of RJ Berger and Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood, but the exact amount she made from them is not listed.
However, Channel earned her biggest hosting income from Ridiculousness.
How much Did Chanel West Coast get Per Episode of Ridiculousness?
While her gig as a co-host on the MTV show Ridiculousness lasted, Chanel West Coast was raking in a whooping $142,050 per episode. Compared to her then co-host, Sterling “Steelo” Brim, who was getting $140k, Channel was making a bit higher. Her earnings from the MTV show went down as her highest-paid television job so far.
Channel started with Ridiculousness when it premiered in 2011, alongside the likes of Sterling “Steelo” Brim and Rob Dyrdek. She went on to last for 30 seasons before she finally exited as a panelist. If we do the calculations, Ridiculousness features at least 35 episodes per season and when you multiply this by $142,050 you would be looking at quite a huge sum. Little wonder Chanel can comfortably boast a $3 million net worth despite being relatively young.
Since Chanel left the MTV show, it has aired an additional four seasons in her absence, but she has no worries, as she has moved on to something bigger and far better.
She Scored a New Job as an Executive Producer with MTV

The said deal was signed on the 27th of March 2023 and according to Chanel, she is super excited about the new opportunity in her career life.
When she creates her unscripted series as an executive producer, Channel will star in them and they will be aired under MTV Entertainment Studios. In the long run, she would be expected to develop additional projects, both scripted and unscripted.
Talking about her new role, Channel said she has always been passionate about creating things, whether music, movies, TV shows, clothing, and more. Rolling out her plans for the near future, she said she would be bringing in some of her wildest dreams and ideas to life through incredible movies & TV projects. Part of her plans is also to build her teams and collaborate with many other creatives to pave the way on the screen.
Channel has never deemed it necessary to reveal the exact sum she would be making from her new deal, but it is reportedly big enough to lure her from what she was raking in as a panelist on Ridiculousness.
