Craig Conover is a TV personality known for his role on Southern Charm.

Craig Conover has a net worth of $700,000, making him one of the richest Southern Charm cast members.
Craig Conover was born in Fenwick Island, Delaware on February 9, 1989. The Delaware native was born into a sports-loving family and played baseball until an elbow injury ended his dream of playing in college. The 34-year-old graduated with a degree in Business Administration and Management.
Afterwards he attended law school at the Charleston School of Law. Craig received his Juris Doctor in 2014 but didn’t pass the bar exam until 2017, after avoiding them for years.
Unlike some reality TV stars, Craig is highly educated. He’s also a practicing attorney in South Carolina and established the Conover Law Firm in 2021. The firm specializes in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases.
To gain experience Craig interned at the Berkeley County Public Defender’s Office. Following that, he worked as a litigation assistant and then in the Anastopoulo Law Firm’s pharmaceutical division. He also works at Apex Principles Inc., which he founded in 2016.
In addition, the TV personality volunteers for a charity called Guardian Ad Litem, representing children that have been placed in foster care. The aspiring entrepreneur runs a high-end home goods business called Sewing Down South. The store sells everything from decorative pillows to kitchen essentials.
Net Worth and Earnings
Southern Charm focuses on the lives of Southern aristocrats and their struggles to balance their personal and professional lives. Although Craig is originally from Delaware, the Charleston lawyer found his way onto the show as an eligible bachelor. The reality TV star gets paid $25,000 per episode on Southern Charm.
Craig bought a property in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina in 2017 for $460,000. It’s now worth an estimated $750,000 according to Redfin. Sewing Down South is still in business but might struggle to sell $70 pillows in the long term. Besides, he earns steady income from brand deals with HSN and Wayfair, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Currently, Conover is worth an estimated $700,000.
Craig is dating his co-star Paige Desorbo. The pair first met while filming Summer House, but were dating other people at the time. During the filming of Winter House, the couple explored their feelings for each other while also keeping their options open.
Conover later revealed that being friends before falling in love helped them form a strong bond. Craig and Paige began dating after filming Winter House and became Instagram official in December 2021.
