With an average of 2.6 million viewers per episode, “Rachael Ray” is considered to be one of the highest watched television daytime shows. In addition to its high viewership, the show has so far earned two Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Talk Show Entertainment, while Rachael Ray received several nominations for Talk Show Host, yet she came second after Ellen DeGeneres.

A famous talk show host and a television personality, how rich is Rachael Ray? According to sources, in 2012 Rachael Ray’s annual salary amounted to $25 million, while a year later it rose to $30 million. In regards to her wealth, Rachael Ray’s net worth is estimated to be $60 million. The majority of Rachael Ray’s net worth and wealth comes from her on-screen appearances, as well as various product endorsements.

Rachael Ray was born in 1968, in Glens Falls, New York. It was in New York where Ray had her first job as a candy counter in a department store called “Macy’s”. Prior to her big breakthrough, Rachael Ray also worked in “Mister Brown’s Pub” as a manager, and “Cowan & Lobel” store. Rachael Ray began showcasing her culinary skills in 2001 in a food network show “30 Minute Meals”, where she created healthy and delicious dishes in under 30 minutes. Even though Ray received criticism for not being a professional cook and having no formal cooking experience, “30 Minute Meals” proved to be a large mainstream success.

A year later, Rachael Ray came out with another television series called “Rachael Ray’s Tasty Travels”, where she travels around the world and tries foods from different places.

1I can say this. I am a cheese-in-a-can virgin. So... [tastes it, makes a face] ...mmm, much like many of our first experiences. A little bit sticky, and not that memorable.
2I'm Always on the lookout for safety 'cause I'm an especially accident prone girl.
3That's why I love food, 'cause it makes the best scrapbook. I mean, pictures are great but they're not very tasty.
4Now, no makin' fun of me if I don't do the separation of the eggs too well. You know I don't bake.
5...I tend to overwhack the meat.
6When you really want to show some love, keep the flowers and say it with spaghetti.
7[on cooking] You do it with your own two hands, so there's a sense of pride. You really do forget all our problems, because you're focusing on the food.
8For a lot of people, divorce is traumatic, but for us, it made for a happier family. It was miserable to watch people live together who shouldn't.
9If you're humble and hardworking, opportunities will arise for you.
10I'm a lousy whistler. I can't make coffee, I can't bake and I can't whistle. There. I'm outed, on all levels.
