Christopher Andrew Pontius was born on the 16th July 1974, in Pasadena, California USA, and is an actor and stuntman who rose to fame as a member of the MTV reality series main cast “Jackass” (2000 – 2002). More, he hosted the spin – off series “Wildboyz” (2003 – 2004), of which he was one of the creators. Chris Pontius has been accumulating his net worth being active in the entertainment industry since 2000.
So just how much is the net worth of Chris Pontius? It has been estimated that his wealth is as much as $12 million, as of early 2016, earned from his various activities in the entertainment industry.
Chris Pontius Net Worth $12 Million
To begin with, Chris grew up on the family ranch in San Luis Obispo, California. His talent in skateboarding earned him his first appearance on Big Brother Magazine (number two). It looks like he wanted to become famous by any and all means, and as a result, Chris appeared naked in public while he was still under 18 (posted in the Magazine number eight). For the next issue, he wrote an article entitled “18 Ways to Be an Asshole”. Later, Chris went from job to job and eventually joined the Big Brother editor Jeff Tremaine, to incorporate the “Jackass” team in 2000. They have released not only the previously mentioned series, but also the reality comedy film “Jackass: The Movie” (2002) directed by Jeff Tremaine. The feature film grossed $79.4 million in the box office which has added sums to the total size of Pontius and other cast members wealth. After such a successful performance, the team has released other films, like “Jackass: Number Two” (2006), “Jackass 2.5” (2007), “Jackass Presents: Mat Hoffman’s Tribute to Evel Knievel” (2008), “Jackass 3-D” (2010), “Jackass 3.5” (2011), “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” (2013) and “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa 5” (2014). All have ontributed somewhat to Chris’ net worth.
Chris Pontius is also known under other nicknames like Party Boy, Bunny the Life-Guard, and many other crazy names – Chris loves disguise. More, he prefers is to appear naked or almost naked in public places. He likes to play the roles of several characters, like Party Boy, a guy who, when he hears music, starts dancing anyhow undressing, or Bunny the Lifeguard, rabbit bodyguard (Chris Pontius wears only a thong, bunny ears and a bra). He posed for nude pictures and sent them to “Play Girl”, female “Play Boy” magazine, but they were not accepted. Undoubtedly, ambiguous behaviour attracts the attention of the masses which eventually results in the growth of Chris Pontius net worth. Sometimes Chris is called “the Superman of modern times”, but Pontius is so comfortable on sexuality that it becomes inconvenient for his entourage. Whatever the conversation, Chris will arrange to divert to an enigmatic perversion field where his cock reins supreme. After “Jackass”, Chris started a new series called “Wildboyz” in which he goes to encounter wild animals along with Steve-O to measure up to them.
In 2011, we saw the second important role created by Pontius in the Sofia Coppola film, “Somewhere”. Again, his net worth benefited.
Finally, in the personal life of the actor and stunt performer, Chris was married to Claire Nolan from 2004 to 2013; together they have one child.
According to an episode of MTV Cribs, he lived in his truck for a while.
He is friends with fellow Jackass and Wildboyz co-star Steve-O. Back when he and the Jackass crew met Steve-O at his circus job, he actually disliked Steve-O for a while but later worked out their differences.
He posed nude for the front cover of Playgirl magazine.

On October 15, 2006 Steve-O and Pontius attended WWE RAW and were allowed in to the wrestling ring. While in the ring the two promoted their new movie, Jackass Number Two (2006). They were interrupted by 'Armando Alejandro Estrada', who attempted to provoke them, saying all of their stunts were just an act. To prove themselves Steve-O and Chris fought Eddie Fatu, but lost.
