Paul Hollywood is certainly rolling in the dough these days.
That's not bad for someone who really likes bread.
Most of his assets come from his two companies HJP Media LLP and Paul Hollywood Ltd, so he definitely has his fingers in all the pies, so to speak.
He was the only one of the original gang to make the move to Channel 4 when the show was nabbed from the BBC for the upcoming series, and there is plenty of money in the pot there.
Bake Off production company Love Productions signed a three-year deal with Channel 4 in a deal last year worth £75 million, which is a good chunk more than the BBC was forking out.
Mary Berry and Mel & Sue all chose to leave the series, but Paul decided to stick around – and now the hunt is on to find a second judge to appear alongside him as well as hosts.
Leaving the BBC was a definite no-no for Mary, who recently revealed that she didn't even want to meet with Channel 4 bosses.
"I didn't ever have a meeting with them. I'd made up my mind. To me it's an honour to be on the BBC. I was brought up on it."
