I’m a Celebrity’s Frankie Muniz reveals the staggering net worth he achieved by 19

it was already a s**t tonne before inflation

Frankie Muniz has revealed the eye-watering net worth that he achieved as a teenager from his starring role in Malcolm in the Middle.

The child actor and his campmates were discussing online trolling, when Frankie admitted that he’d received a lot of negative comments throughout his career. He told his castmates that he used to bite back at particularly nasty ones.

“This kid wrote, ‘I’m sorry but your acting is just awful.’ And I was in a movie, and I went, ‘Yeah it is, but you know what’s not awful? Being retired at 19 with $40 million [US]. Good luck moving out of your mum’s house before you’re 35.’

‘His Twitter name was ‘I heart Mountain Dew’. Like, OK,’ he added. 

40 Million USD is equivalent to around 61 million AUD, plus inflation would make the figure even higher. Frankie was born in 1985, so he was 19 in 2004. If inflation is added to his figure of 61,000 million AUD, it would be equivalent to 101 million in 2024.

Is Frankie Muniz retired?

After building such a fortune at such a young age, Frankie could have easily retired before he turned 20, and his campmate Brittany Hockley asked him whether that was possible.

“Oh, 100 per cent,” he responded.

“But I’m neurotically motivated. I’ve just always worked since I was eight years old. I don’t know how to just be in the moment and not be focused on what I’m doing next.”

Frankie started competing in NASCAR competitions in 2021 and made his debut at the Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield, California. He’s in the ARCA Menards Series which is is the fourth level of NASCAR.
