He is an author and he co-hosts the Pillows and Beer podcast with co-star Austen Kroll. Craig Conover has a net worth of $400,000, 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 33-year-old is a College of Charleston, South Carolina, graduate.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Management before returning to law school at the Charleston School of Law. Craig received his Juris Doctor degree in 2014 but did not pass his bar exams until 2017, after avoiding them for years. He was sworn in as an attorney the following year.
Over the years, Craig has proven to be quite industrious as viewers watched him on the show. The Law graduate is popular for appearing on Southern Charm. Craig is also a practicing attorney in South Carolina. He established the Conover Law Firm in 2021, specializing in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases.
Craig got his start in the legal field as an intern 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 charitable organization called Guardian Ad Litem, where he represents children who have been placed in foster care. The aspiring entrepreneur also runs a home goods business called Sewing Down South.
The store sells everything from decorative pillows, which he promotes and endorses on his social media, to kitchen essentials. The Sewing Down South founder loves a cozy setting so he creates pillows that give off a homey vibe.
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 through his jack-of-all-trades ability which has made him quite the eligible bachelor. The reality TV star gets paid $25,000 per episode on Southern Charm.
Craig lives in his luxurious home which he recently renovated after an asbestos incident. Craig’s pillows are also on the pricey side with each one selling for about 50 dollars upwards. Besides, he draws in a sizable amount from his business deals with HSN and Wayfair which are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Currently, Conover is worth an estimated $400,000.
Craig is currently dating his co-star Paige Desorbo. They 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.
The 33-year-old 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.
