MTV’s hit competition series, The Challenge, is back for an all-new season in Iceland. And while the setting and rules are different, one figure remains a series mainstay: former The Real World: Austin star Wes Bergmann. Yes, he might’ve gotten his start on MTV back in 2005, but he’s definitely made his mark on the network. In fact, Double Agents marks his 17th time competing on the series.

Since he is a long-time returning contestant, fans might've wondered just how much money he’s made throughout his tenure on MTV (and how many Challenges he's won in that time). Here's everything we know about Wes Berg mann's estimated net worth:

Wes Bergmann’s net worth is around $500,000.

Bergmann got his start as a cast member on The Real World: Austin during the early aughts. While he didn’t win any money, he did make his debut on The Challenge: Fresh Meat just a year later and won $10,000 for nabbing third place. That same year, Bergmann returned for The Duel version of the series and won a mere $300,000 win alongside Jodi Weatherton, with each winner entitled to half of the earnings.

He would come back another four times (The Ruins, Fresh Meat II, Rivals, Rivals II) and win on Rivals II alongside Chris “CT” Tamburello, Emily Schromm, and Paula Meronek. Their prize including an equal share in $350,000. Pretty sweet deal, if you ask us.

Lucky for him, The Challenge vet also knows how to invest his money wisely. He currently backs Flow State Systems, a wellness and supplement company.

While fans won’t know for a while if Wes manages to win Double Agents, he does have a Cameo account if you’re willing to shell out $75 to receive a personalized video from your favorite competitor. If you want some inside scoop as the season airs, Wes is also offering a $25/month subscription to his Patreon account for all the juicy details behind the scenes.

In other words, the man just knows how to make money.
