Full House, Fuller Wallets. Here’s the Net Worth of 10 “Full House” Stars

You’re reading this article, which probably guarantees you’re as much of a “Full House” fan as I am.

Maybe you binge-watched all of “Fuller House” as soon as Netflix released it.

Or maybe you just paid $20 plus a two-drink minimum to see Joey Gladstone at a comedy club in a Midwest strip mall, and you’re wondering, like many of us, “Gosh. How’s that guy doin’ these days?”

We have the answer. He’s doing, um, OK.

Here’s how the actors who taught us so many lessons in childhood — and provided fodder for so many memes in adulthood — have fared over the past 30 years.

Which Full House Star Has the Highest Net Worth?

The list has a few surprises.

Steve (Scott Weinger) ranks higher than Joey, DJ and Stephanie Tanner (Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin, respectively).

During his time on “Full House,” Weinger was cast as the voice of Aladdin in Disney’s 1992 animated classic. Reprisals of the Disney role pretty well carried his career through the 90s and early aughts.

His net worth is $12 million, Bankrate reports.

Coulier, on the other hand, is reported to have a modest $4 million. The beloved impressionist has continued to work in TV and stand-up, with cartoon voice-overs and squeaky-clean family comedy.

John Stamos (Uncle Jesse/every 12-year-old girl’s crush from 1987-95) ranks fourth with a net worth of $20 million.

Stamos has danced around the edges of the spotlight with steady TV work since the end of “Full House.” He’s now starring in Fox’s “Grandfathered” as the sexy, single senior Uncle Jesse could have totally grown up to become.

The numbers jump dramatically for the unsurprising top three.

Bob Saget’s net worth is $100 million. The star behind our buddy Danny Tanner is well-known for the polarity between his family-friendly TV roles and his so-very-NSFW stand-up act.

His role as the voice of future Ted Mosby in the wildly successful “How I Met Your Mother” was probably pretty generous to his bank account, as well.

And then there are Mary Kate and Ashley, tied at the top with $150 million each.

Those beloved, adorable babies who captured our hearts with cute catchphrases, unlikely adventures and perplexing ditties.

“Fuller House” has turned the Olsen twins’ abstinence from acting and behind-the-scenes success into a joke the cast and fans can share.

As adults, they’ve dipped out of TV and tabloids and acquired their millions through fashion design, merchandising and producing movies and television shows.

Here They Are, Ranked in Full:
