Cheer net worths: How much money the cast have made since being on the show

Monica gets paid $84k (£60k) to be the Navarro coach

Cheer is our fav show for combining drama and sports. We’ve fallen in love with so many of the people who feature in it over the two seasons and the show has made some of it’s biggest stars very, very rich. Yep, the net worths of some of the biggest names from Cheer are eye-watering.

We watch the Navarro squad work harder than appears humanly possible, the gruelling schedule pushes them to their limits, and they eat, sleep and breathe cheer. To be honest, they all deserve to be millionaires. Most of us couldn’t even imagine being able to do what they do every single day.

Here are the net worths of some of the most popular people featured in Netflix series Cheer, and how much money they are earning.

Monica Aldama – $1million (£730k)
