Career Beginnings

Jesse straight away found a place for himself at Fox News as a production assistant, and it wasn’t long before Jesse joined the production staff of “The O’Reilly Factor”. Jesse’s role in the show gradually improved, and he managed to sell some of his many ideas, and started to appear in several segments of the show, and finally got his own segment called “Watter’s World”.

“Watter’s World”

Starting as a short segment aired on “The O’Reilly Factor” in 2015, Jesse would interview people he would meet on the streets. Jesse became one of the popular journalists on Fox News, and so in 2017, his “Watter’s World” became a weekly show. So far, Jesse has created over 85 episodes of the highly acclaimed show, which has improved his popularity, and along with that his net worth.

Other Work

Once Jesse’s contribution to Fox News became constant and rather popular, his role on the channel began to improve too, and he was given new positions. As a result, he moved from the “O’Reilly Factor” to serve as guest co-host of the show “Fox and Friends” in 2013, and the same year became the co-host of the very popular talk show “The Five”, which only further increased his net worth. Thanks to his extensive collaboration with Bill O’Reilly, Jesse was a part of O’Reilly’s 2017 “The Spin Stops Here” tour alongside Dennis Miller.

How Rich Jesse Watters Is?

Immediately after having he finished college, Jesse was hired by Fox News, and over the years has become one of the most popular political commentators, which has consistently increased his overall wealth, which he now counts in millions. Let’s see exactly how rich Jesse Watters is; according to authoritative sources, Jesse’s net worth is estimated at over $1 million, earned through his distinguished career as a political commentator. Since starting his career, his salary increased over time, and now amounts to $300,000 pa, so his wealth would seem very likely to increase considerably. Not bad for a journalist and political commentator, right?

Jesse Watters Controversies

His job is to provide humorous comments about daily politics, but those comments have sometimes attracted negative attention, and so resulted in a number of controversies. Back in 2016, he was involved in a racist incident with Asian Americans, when during a “Watters’ World” episode, he visited Chinatown and made apparently offensive comments towards Chinese people, while a year later he made lewd comments about Ivanka Trump while on air as a co-host of “The Five” – he commented on a panel about female entrepreneurship, stating “So I don’t really get what’s going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone”, followed by a video in which Jesse was simulating oral sex with a hand gesture. The video became viral on social media, forcing Jesse into an unplanned holiday.

Life Behind the Scene

Jesse has two twin girls with his wife Noelle Watters; the couple married in 2009, but as of October 2017, the couple has been separated because of Jesse’s affair with Emma DiGiovine, who is a producer on his show. Once the Fox News officials learned about their relationship, Emma was transferred to “The Ingraham Angie” show, but that didn’t stop her and Jesse continuing their romantic relationship. Divorce proceedings are underway!

Internet Popularity

Since becoming popular on TV, Jesse has managed to expand his popularity to the internet, particularly social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. His official Instagram account has more than 230,000 followers and the feed is full of his pictures from various events and shows, including “The Five”, and his speech from the “Freedom Works” campaign. Jesse also has an avid following on Twitter with more than 620,000 people keeping track of his professional and personal life. Furthermore, Jesse’s official Facebook page has close to 700,000 followers. So, if you are not already a fan of one of the most popular political commentators, this is a great opportunity for you to get connected.
