Rimes paid $200K to host Nashville Star.
How much does a reality TV show host get paid? If you’re LeAnn Rimes, the newly crowned host of Nashville Star 3, you’d receive $200,000 for nine episodes. That’s roughly $22,222.22 an hour. A producer told The Tennesean that, last year, the 21-year-old “was really relaxed and cool with contestants” when she appeared on the finale. And Nancy O’Dell shrieked and threw things at the contestants? The paper also reports that “LeAnn will fit in better with the Nashville Star’s new direction toward the contemporary end of things” as the show is “getting a youthful injection.”
