"Dancing with the Stars" is a popular dance competition show that has been airing on ABC since 2005.

Tom Bergeron, 58, has been the Emmy-winning host on the show since the beginning. His co-host now is Erin Andrews who replaced Brooke Burke-Charvet on March 17, 2014, for its eighteenth season. Burke-Charvet has co-hosted seasons ten through seventeen. Samantha Harris co-hosted seasons two through nine. Lisa Canning was the original co-host for season one. While Bergeron has stayed put, there have been four women co-hosts.

According to reports, Bergeron's net worth is estimated to be $12 million, but not all from "Dancing with the Stars." He makes $150,000 for each episode. He has been hosting reality and game shows since he was 17 years old. He is also the host of the popular "America's Funniest Home Videos." On March 12, 2014, Bergeron announced that he would be leaving "America's Funniest Home Videos" after the upcoming 25th season.

The current co-host, Erin Andrews, 35, is an American sportscaster who has a net worth of $3 million and annual salary of $800,000. However, those amounts are not from "Dancing with the Stars." Since she just started on March 17, 2014, no record of his salary can be found anywhere online. It has been stated that the producers hired her for half the salary of Burke-Charvet's salary of $80,000 per episode. Burke-Charvet was dismissed a month before the start of the new season.
