12. Jay Leno
Stand-up comedian and former The Tonight Show TV host Jay Leno, earned $15 million per year and is worth $350 million. He earns extra income of approximately $20 million per year from doing stand-up. As surprising as it is, Leno lives a frugal life. After being paid from The Tonight Show, he keeps the rest of his money in the bank after he dishes out fees and taxes. Even though he can afford to live big, why is he so frugal? When Leno was younger, he worked two jobs in order to survive and one of the jobs included washing cars at a Mercedes-Benz dealership. His only splurge, however, is an extensive car collection.
